Eat dogs?

Pigs are just as, if not more intelligent, and friendly. If you would eat a pig, you would eat a dog. It's only rational.

There's really no ethical difference between a dog and a cow, if you actually do think about it. They are both social animals. They both suffer. They are both sentient. Therefore, if you would eat a cow, you would eat a dog. So time to chow down on fido, right anon?

They aren't. The WHO just says that because 99% of people are cooking their red meat until it's black on the outside and brown in the middle.

Dumb people don't get it but political bodies tend to shape their statements in ways that encourage healthy behavior for the lowest common denominator, even if it makes them not entirely true.

"Red meat prepared using high heat contains carcinogens" literally translates to "if you burn stuff it's carcinogenic". Have you heard of acrylamide, by any chance?

A food is not carcinogenic because you can make it carcinogenic. You fucking idiot.
>>
>>3834105
Also here's something that's just as carcinogenic as meat so I am done eating plants entirely. Are you? Clearly they are carcinogenic. No no no...its not that cooking them like this made them carcinogenic. "Plants prepared using high heat contain carcinogens" literally translates to "plants can be considerably carcinogenic". Therefore, DONT EAT PLANTS. THEYRE DANGEROUS.

>"Red meat prepared using high heat contains carcinogens" literally translates to "if you burn stuff it's carcinogenic".
It literally does not. It translates to, "If you cook red meat, it's carcinogenic." Not "stuff." Red meat, specifically. And it doesn't need to be burnt. Just "prepared using high heat," there's a difference.
Red meat isn't carcinogenic strictly because it can be made carcinogenic, no, it's carcinogen because it is by nature. Heating it makes it worse.
Hence, red meat is a 2a carcinogen.

I am watching my girlfriends cat for the week and this isnt the first time.

I gave it a whole room with a nice comfy chair and bed with a litter box along with food and water put its favorite thing to scratch in there and my girlfriend left it with cat nip.

I don't even close the door and lock it in but the relationship we once had seems destroyed as the cat will only tolerate pets on its back a bit before attempting to attack me if i try to touch anywhere else. Its always tense i know it dislikes my dog but its stayed here before and never been so tense it used to jump around on my table and living room but now never leaves the room even though the door is wide open. Even if the dog is gone it refuses to come out of the room ive given it

it used to meow at me for attention and rub up on me now it gives me disgruntled noises.

what happened?

I'm unsure, my cat has hyperthyroidism and he's a stray who I took in in 2006. He's lean, medication just made him vomit more often when I put him on it. He was an adult in 2006 when he moved in. They key things are plenty of access to water (if he's out a lot make sure there is water available in your yard always, they need lots to drink) and he eats a truckload of food, but stays lean, because he is burning it off like crazy. He's probably around 18-20 most likely but I'll never know. Either way, he's enjoying this summer. They can live a long old time.

>>3834102
I don't go that far, but something I would never admit except online is that I do give him little nips or love bites in return when he's nuzzling me - though I cover my teeth with my lips since I'm scared of hurting.

Sausages full of nails, screws and tacks.

Rat poison tossed over the fence or laced into meat.

All of these easily down from across the street away from your property or so subtly you'll never notice until it is too late.

With an opaque fence all around they likely won't bother. Thieves like open back yards so they can just walk around pretending to be the meter reader and go in through a window or backdoor. It's about risk and reward.

>>
>>3833715
Wrong. The world is blind to the dangers of overpopulation. Just look at China/Japan. They're losing their minds over birth rates and age demographics.

But these are baseless fears, when the more prosperous and educated a people are, the less inclined they are to increase their numbers. It's why we see white people "declining" in America - because non-whites just suck at living.

The world is slow. The people who stop breeding have to suffer because of the people who continue to do so. It's a double-edged conundrum.

A vulture attacked my cat last week. Left huge lacerations on her hide. It was my fault. I got her high on catnip so she can deal with her feline separation anxiety (previous owner died away from home). So she was high as a kite when attacked.
Vet only charged $540 for the surgery.
My parents told me I should just put her down because she's already 15, but I have money. Putting her down probably would have been inexpensive. But no. She deserves her retirement.

Ok, that's a good test. I lack hay mind as I am living in the city. Carefresh is a brand I assume? I wanted to avoid wood cut bedding as I heard it was bad, but I'm devastated if this bedding won't let him burrow. Don't mind the finances as it wasn't remotely as expensive but the guy is just settling in to his environment. Should I wait till 2-3 weeks until he's settled THEN change the bedding?
>>
>>3832880
carefresh is a paper based bedding, kinda like soft tissue paper pieces. i use wood cut bedding for horses with less dust and never had problems for my hamsters.you could change half the enclosure now and the rest later
>>
>>3833854
The little guy has only been in there for about 24 hours. He is still adjusting to his environment, I can't imagine the stress which would be induced if I suddenly started dragging him out of the place he calls "new" home when he's already shaking and hiding all the time.

I don't expect him to become hyper friendly or social like a Rat or Syrian, but I do want him to become more used to my presence at least and I think dumping him out and back in this soon would be detrimental. That said I am going to the pet store tomorrow for new bedding so he can enjoy digging in the not so distant future.

Are you leaving the top open or do you have air holes cut in the lid? DESU if you just cut out large sections, get chicken wire and zip tie them over the open sections for airflow
>>
>>3834065
I am leaving the top open because the bedding currently in there is designed to absorb bad odour and supposedly robos themselves are the least smelliest of the hamsters. Which so far is proving true. Second day and the little guy is adjusting slowly.
