  • would spaying my cat solve this?

    So i have 3 female cats all limited to inside only, 2 dont normally go in heat very often but one we named Doom it seems like she is in heat every other week, shes a super friendly cat to start with but she annoying when in heat. is it normal for her to be in heat this often? as the other two are not nearly as often. as well during this time she pees on things like my counter top or a blanket or bag. Iv caught her doing it once and so i believe it is just her i was thinking it may be an infection but now i think i may have to get her fixed sooner then latter as i cant stand this happening. so will fixing solve this?

    PS 2 of the cats are to be fixed this year, we were just hopeing to get the dog in first, the other cat is nearly at the end of her life and doesnt go into heat any more.

    Thanks.

  • hand feeding lovebirds question?

    I recently Pulled 4 baby Lovebirds from there parents the oldest being nearly 3 weeks old. i had left the youngest of 5 with the parents as it was nearly a week differece of hatch date. now my questions is, is it normal for babies this young not to cry for food. with my other clutch I would normally sleep with them beside my bed so in the morning they would wake me for feeding time. I normally try to stick to a scheduled of 6am, 12pm, 6pm , 11pm with some time there would be extra feeding depending on the babies I would always check on there crying. now these babies I have pulled i have not herd a sound from them they have had 4 feeding and have been difficult not taken much food. besides that they are active and love to move around and explore when I'm trying to feed them ( they are more interested in there surroundings then food) poop is regular and consistent.

    so is it normal they don't cry for food? and any tips on getting them to eat more.? thank you

  • what would cause this?

    I just got two indian ringnecks, today i realized the female is bleeding at the very edge of her wings both wings. I have added corstarch to them to stop the bleeding and am watching her carefully. she is a wild ringneck and is in her cage with a male. Now the people i got her from have her wings cliped could the bleeding be caused by improper clipping? i have checked for a broken blood feather have not found any seems to be a flesh injury. she was also housed in a very small cage with her male could that of injured her wings? she seems active and alert there dropping look great her wings are drooping and we are scheduled for a vet on Wednesday as i have no money till then or it would be sooner.

    so the injury is on the very end of her wing seems to be just flesh not bone and isn't bleeding at the moment. what would cause this type of injury thank you.

  • Breeding feeder mice?

    I have 4 female mice and one male. they have all been housed together for the past week. Now iv noticed that one female is VERY pregnant and I'm having a hard time telling the male from the female. I think I separated him from them as the genitals are lower then the others and there was something sticking out i thought it could possibly be his penis? I'm all new to breeding mice.

    as well I had him with the 4 for little over a week will all 4 be pregnant?

  • Can any one tell me what this is?

    I adopted a B&G Macaw he came with his Toys cage and food. Now i got this perch like thing with him Im not sure what it is Iv only been around Parrots for the past 8 years and have no idea what this is. The Macaw is 20 years old this month. I don't want to be giving the bird something I have no idea what it is. it seems to be made out of a soft wood and in side the holes is a clay like substance I'm thinking its something like what the clay licks parrots go to in the wild. any one out there have had these?

    and if you have had these before what is the best way of washing it?

  • how to stop this behavior?

    I have a young Senegal named Alice. she is I believe 10weeks old and has started kicking her pellets out of her food dish. at first i thought that the dish is too big so i got her a smaller one and she still manages to do it though with difficulty. Any advice? I offer Fruits and veggies with birdie bread in the mornings and she doesn't kick that out of the dish.
