  • What causes a cat to sporadically act sick?

    About 8 months ago, my cat started acting sick. She didn't want to eat much, didn't move much and didn't want to play. I took her to the vet and had a blood panel done but they couldn't figure out anything wrong with her and they wanted to do a bunch of tests I couldn't afford. I took her home and she was fine a few days later.... show more

She is indoors only, spayed, and we don't use poisons or anything around the house.

  • Any idea why my cockatiel has become really noisy?

    He's been absolutely obnoxious and non-stop twittering and singing. He did this when we first got him last year, but settled down. Any ideas why a year and a half later, he's started to be obnoxious again? He was screeming non-stop for 45 minutes at 6:00 this morning; I had to get earplugs.

  • What are these gigantic black bees that love to hang out in my yard?

    I live in CA in the San Francisco Bay Area, and there are tons of gigantic black bees that like to hang out around my purple potato bush. There's always at least 5 or 6 of these guys. They're about 1.5 inches long and very thickly built.

    I have a koi who is about 5" who has lived in a 10 gallon aquarium for about 5 years. I am planning on putting him into a pond 10x that size; will he grow any bigger when he has more room or is he permanently stunted?

  • Can I put koi in a 100 gallon pond?

    I just put in a new pond that is more or less 100 gallons. It has one goldfish in there who is a survivor from the old pond. I will also be putting one goldfish and a koi who has lived in a 10 gallon tank for 5-6 years. I saw a stunning butterfly koi at a pond shop, and I was considering getting him. Would that be too many fish for the pond?

  • Anyone ever have a lineolated parakeet?

    I was thinking about getting one of these. I've heard they are supposed to be nice and affectionate. I'm moving to an apartment and can't take my obnoxiously loud jerk conure with me, and I was thinking a bird who is actually friendly might be a nice addition.

  • Is my parrot masturbating?

    I just moved my conure's wood pot toy closer to his perch, and he has been rubbing his butt against it and making a soft "errrhhhh.....errrrhhhhh" sound when he does it. Is he, um, jacking off? I am not sure he is a male, he has not been sexed. Should I take his toy away from him, or let him do his thing?
