  2. Hey everyone! First I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and second I'd like to announce that I have taken over Pet Natter! The previous owner had too much going on and as much as he loves Pet Natter he just couldn't devote his time to it. Since I'm a pet lover myself and have knowledge on how the forum software works, plus I have the time he passed it over to me and I'm very happy he chose to. What to expect now? Well in the coming weeks you're going to notice changes with the forum. First I'm going to get rid of all the spam accounts. Second you're going to notice a few changes on the layout of the forum pertaining to sections etc. Nothing crazy at all. Just maybe an extra section or two. Third I'm going to work on adding another style. In the meantime if you happen to encounter the forum offline please note that it will be temporary. The forum will be under maintenance here and there within the next two weeks. I will try and get things done quickly. In the meantime if you have any suggestions or complaints please don't hesitate to post them here in this thread. Pete..

  3. “Squid Game” was the first series in which producer Hwang Dong-hyuk worked with an international entertainment company like Netflix. Dong-hyuk had actually been working on the script since 2008. At the time, he had a family and was extremely broke and in debt just like the contestants on the show.

  5. When dogs kick backward after they go to the bathroom it’s not to cover it up, but to mark their territory, using the scent glands in their feet.

  6. Best way is by far a large cage with a lot of natural enrichment and room for foraging, exploring, and places to hide. Since hamsters are prey animals they do better in crowded enclosures, though not too crowded to the point they can't walk. Plastic tunnels are typically discouraged against due to their awful ventilation, difficulty to clean, and dangerous size for Syrian hamsters and some large dwarfs. To achieve a nice cage, a common thing is bins, though often these can be too small for most Syrian hamsters and even some dwarfs. The most common bin being the 200qt/50gal storage bin or a christmas tree bin. With the 50gal bin you can achieve around 600sqin of floorspace and a decent amount of bedding, though again I'd really only recommend using bins for some dwarfs. Another common option is tanks/aquariums. Which can work very nicely depending on the size. One of the common sizes being a 75 gallon(48"x18"x21") tank, which gives 864sqin of floorspace which can work a lot better for hamsters. However some hamsters still need more space so it's up to see what you can achieve. The next common thing I'd say is making a DIY. There are loads of ways How you enrich the enclosure is important as well. Having deep bedding is vital as hamsters are burrowing animals and not providing enough bedding for them to burrow would be stripping them of their natural needs. Most dwarf species typically need around 8" or so, and syrians around 10" or so for a large part of their enclosure. This can be increasingly more difficult to do for smaller cages, especially ones like "crittertrails." You also want enough floorspace in order to fit the proper enrichment items. With a tiny cage you can't fit things such as a lot of hides, tunnels (large for syrians), cork logs, grapevine branches, etc. How you enrich your enclosure is up to your hamsters needs but it's really easy to enrich it in such a nice way (for both your hamster and looking at the enclosure :p) with natural items~ So overall, just whatever large enclosure you have at your expense I'd think is the best way to house a hamster. Currently I've just used the largest storage bins I can find and enriched them the best way I could (for dwarfs), but in the future I hope for my own personal DIY cage that will allow me the space I want.

  7. Did you know cats don’t actually meow at each other? That’s right – it’s a communication tool reserved exclusively for humans. According to a Cornell University study, cats are skilled at modifying their vocalizations based on the situation. For example, researchers suggest that the 7 a.m. “feed me” meow is longer and lower in frequency compared to the shorter, equal parts high and low frequency “adopt me” meow. So, if you’ve ever felt like you understood what your cat was saying, now you know – you really do!

  9. Another sleep fact: Only half a Dolphin's brain sleeps at a time. Dolphins are mammals so although they live in the sea, and can hold their breath for an exceptionally long time, they do have to come up for air from time to time. It is for this reason that a Dolphin's brain will never fully disengage, as it still needs to retain enough motor control to occasionally go up to the surface and breath. Dolphins also sleep with one eye open at all times.

  17. Just to mention for the white tree frogs, they are arboreal and I'd recommend no less than 24" height on their enclosure. A 18x18x24" should be about the minimum you strive for. Or making a 29gal tank vertical would work as well ^-^

  20. I think having your cat to use your toilet bowl is the coolest and funniest thing. Funny because imagine you’re rushing to use the toilet and you walk in only to see your cat is using it already. You have to wait on line lol. Not to mention you’ll save money on cat litter. Have any of you successfully trained your cat to use the toilet bowl?

  21. I'll tell you this for multiple cats the go 2 litter was Tidy Cat Multiple Cats. That was back in the days when I had cats and worked in a pet food store. It wasn't pricey and it used to sell like crazy. I personally think it worked great for controlling the smell.

  35. Here's what I can think of... Give Your Rabbit More Hay. Rabbits need to chew and that can keep them busy Provide an Enriching Environment. Some bunnies chew because they are bored. Use Positive Reinforcement and Training. If you come home one day, and she wasn't chewing it, give her a treat, or just some positive attention. Spend Time Outside. That can distract her from chewing on the box spring, and even some time away from it! Play, Play, Play!

  36. I have an amazing pet, Bambi, and I am so grateful to have her in my life, but as she gets older, I keep wondering whether I will be able to cope when I eventually lose her. I wanted to know what your thoughts are on getting a second dog as a companion for your older dog and for yourself. I think it will make the loss less devastating but I wonder if that's selfish of me.

  40. this is Carmella and brownie! Carmella is the one on the bed, who we used to be fostering, but the owner gave us the option to keep her, as the owner is moving, and we agreed! so Carmella is 2 years old, and has been with us for a year and a half, and brownie is 3 and a ahlf.

  41. I think you can only keep seahorses in their own saltwater tank because they can be hurt by other fish. They are also expensive and hard to keep alive. The average is about $100 for 10 dwarf horses. But if you really want to keep seahorses, you can buy those that have been raised in captivity.

  42. Hi! So sorry I've been busy and haven't been able to respond yet. For now, it's best to leave the babies and mother alone and make sure they are in a calming environment. Try to not mess with them as it could result in the mum culling (eating) her pups. Make sure the mum has warm nesting material, especially since it's winter. And fresh food and water. When the pups get older you can start to interact with them more and eventually separate them from their mother and each other, but for now it's best to leave the new family alone.

  43. Tarantulas are one of my next goals to have as a pet :D I actually wouldn't recommend holding them. They are quite fragile and will get stressed out. You can hold some of them. It's just not recommended. Females can live up to 25years whereas males only like 7 or so. You need to do research on the specific T you'll be getting. And when asking questions or if joining a tarantula forum and such, you'll need to use the scientific name for the specific species/kind you got. I would say a 10gallon is perfect for most adults. If you want more info I highly suggest looking into a few people on youtube and their websites. I'm currently looking into getting a Aphonopelma chalcodes or Arizona Blonde Tarantula. Though I definitely need to do more research before getting one haha.

  45. Really just depends. I prefer to have free-roaming rabbits, whether that be one rabbit-proof room, or the whole house being rabbit-proof. However, if you can have a large enough enclosure for them to be happy (not most commercial cage options) then if they are happy in that, you can cage them if needed. I would still prefer free-roaming in a rabbit-safe room, but it depends on what you and your rabbit are comfortable with.

  46. I heard that the Macaw is usually one of the biggest birds you can have as a pet. I don't know if you can adopt most other big birds, as those may pose a problem. Wild birds are usually tough to take care of anyway. So idk if I would get anything too big.

  47. Well, if your rabbit is well trained, there probably is no need for a cage. He/she could live like a dog or cat, just make sure they're safe and protected. If it's not trained, it's best to keep it caged, as they will be problematic around your home. So it's best to keep them caged until they're trained enough.

  48. If you adopt a cat as a young kitten and they get rewarded for being vocal, they are more likely to do it. I have seen cats who don't meow at all but they were strays and adopted later in life.

  49. Well yes and no. It's best to pair them at birth, so that they get used to each other. Bringing two animals together at an older age, is a lot tougher, because they're always going to be unsure about a new animal in the family. So start young if possible. If not, try to keep them apart if they're alone, because who knows what they'll do to each other.
