Why do you have to keep nightcrawlers cold? And...what would happen if you didn't? Because I bought some today, and they STINK! There's no way I'm putting them in the fridge! But I don't want them to die if I leave them out. It's only supposed to be in the low to mid 70's, so... Would they be alright?

The nieghbors (dispite our requests) let their cats out to roam free, ignoring the county ordinances to the contrary. As a result they use our landscaping as a litter box. Other than the odor, digging, flies, and threat of disease from piles of crap that go largely inseen until it's too late, I have no problem with their cats beeing out. Does anyone know how to keep the cats away or repel them from our yard. Paintball guns, pellet guns, poison...

How would I know if I got worms from my dogs?
I'll start from the beginning. I bought a bluish purple betta fish on monday. He was slightly thin and uncolorful, but so were all the others. I bought one who looked healthy, no scum, good swimming, good scales, etc. Tuesday, he just looked better and better. His fins were unfurling and his color was brightening. He was swimming around happily. He ate all I gave him quickly. He would interact with me, and follow my finger. Wednesday, He se...

How many puppies do boston terriers have?
I had a hamster once. Her name is Fluffy. She died a couple of months ago, and until now I just can't get over it. Hamsters are supposed to live up to 3 years right? Fluffy died when she was just 2. I don't think it was because of sickness, or anything health-related. I believe our dog ate her, because the d4mn dog loves to chew on anything small and hairy, like harmless little kittens just passing by. I wasn't there when Fluff died, when I go...

Is she doing this because she misses home? Should I give her back to my ...

If cats lick their owners' hands and also the owners pet the cats' furs, can the leukemia virus pass on to the humans in this manner?
Admit it. If you see a homeless dog you find who's owner it is and if you can't find it you beg your parents if you can keep it or you give it to someone who will take good care of it. But when you see homeless people on the road asking for a little money most are quick to turn their heads and make stereotypes. I'm not saying all, I'm saying most. It's not like most people are likely to take a homeless man into their house and give it somethin...

I know, penguins probably aren't *allowed* as pets. However, I keep thinking they are very cute, and many cartoons that my children watch feature penguins regularly. Just this morning we saw "go diego go" and they featured emporer penguins. Just so I'm clear, though: penguins don't talk in real life, right?

An ordinance passed where I live, Durham, North Carolina a few years ago. It goes into effect (finally!) at the end of June, and prohibits the chaining of dogs outdoors. I, for one, am super excited about this. I used to *hate* when people had their dogs live outside in general, but finally have begun to understand that some dogs actually enjoy living outdoors. My knowledge of "dog pack" mentality used to make me think it was awful. But, my t...

how old is a female puppy when she starts her first menstrual cycle
We started training our puppy (she is 13 weeks old-had her for 3 weeks) to ring a bell on doorknob to go outside and do her business. But she likes to go outside to investigate our cats and play around so she rings the bell even after coming back inside to go out again. We don't think we should let her out everytime because she is ringing it constantly but we don't want to take a chance on her relieving herself inside if we ignore the ringin...

My new dog gave birth yestarday to eleven puppies. I notice that she is kinda rough with them. For example, when she gets up she kinda steps on them and it frightens me because she might kill them.
