I have a 4 year old Silver shaded persian male cat and a 9 mth. old chocolate point Himalayan female, they are both fixed. My Persian is beautiful but very slim and I have tried everything to add weight to his slim build. If there are any suggestions, I am open to any. He is a little over 7 pounds. My Himalayan is big, at least 9 or 10 pounds already, and very active, she is very smart and affectionate, loves to play, but my persian doesn't like her. What am I to do, I want them to be company for each other and I love them both. They are a lot of work as they require daily brushing, which I don't mind doing. Just want my Persian to get a little heavier. Cats in Canada.

These animals are critically endangered, I have no concrete evidence but I would like anyone to let me know if they know. I am wondering if buying or selling these, or any critically endangered species, is legal or not?

    Yes this species is critically endangered in its natural habitat. Those found as pets are most likely captive bred specimens. Some times the endangered status of an animal does impact keeping them in captivity, but even then legalities regarding keeping them is usually often location based. Usually captive bred specimens are fine.

If you had a cockatoo for about 25 yers are you allowed to put another one in with it?

    Cockatoos are very social animals, and if you've had it for 25 years... it probably thinks you are its flock. Adding another bird is fine, but you want to give both birds plenty of time to get used to the new arrangement. It takes time, love, and patience.

We have a rescue pug. We love her so much, she is the sweetest thing. We have had her about four years. When i leave or she does not see me she will start hollering. Everyone thinks shes saying mama cause it does sound like that. I would very much recommend rescuing one. You would not be disappointed.

    Just got my first pug and she is everything you described. Very playful and demands attention which I don't mind. I have fallen in love with her. I have always had big dogs but she may be small yet she is very big. She (BOO) is 4 years old but still has all the puppy spunk. And she has already shown her devotion and abundant love. Thanks BILL

PLEASE HELP! We bought our 5 year old male severe named Meeka  from a very good home.  He was rehomed because his owner since birth could not take care of him and give him the proper attention he deserves.  When we got home, the first 3-4 days Meeka was very talkative inside of his cage.  We opened his door and after a while he began coming out onto the door; no further.  His wings are clipped so I have a coffee table right under his door should he decide to come out he would have an easy place to hop onto.  Here's the problem.  It's been a week and a half, he still goes only to his door to sit; then now it's cage only and he pretty much stopped talking and is beginning to squak.  Meeka's door is open all day till we go to bed... He is also beginning to scratch and prune a lot lately.



ANY HELP would be appreciated.

    Maybe he is feeling uncomfortable in his environment? First, since it is still a relatively new home, he may need some time to adjust more. Also make sure he is in an area with no drafts, not very much noise, and consider placing a blanket over his cage at night. That often helps to make birds feel more at home. If you are concerned about sickness, watch for physical signs of an ailment - such as watery eyes, sneezing, ruffled feathers, etc.

    The coffee table could be freaking him out! Clipped birds can still climb very well, put a perch on his door that he can sit on, the bolt and washer kind. So the perch is in the cage when door closed but outside when door is open. Be patient! Huge adjustment for the boy. It is a big scary world, and he is now taking in all the goings on in that new world! Let him get comfortable. I have been rescuing all kinds of parrots for 30 years, do not rush to make friends, he will let you know when he is ready. Settling in takes time!

I live in Milton, Florida and have 3 macaws, a greenwing only about 4 months old that I am hand feeding. I also have an 7 month old blue and gold. We started feeding her also when she was 4 months old. But my favorite is my harlequin, he is and will always be my 1st love. I got him when he was 6 and 1/2 months old..no hand feeding for him. I haven't had any of the birds sexed but just by the behavior I guess the sexes, my b&g acts like a girl..she is sweet and cuddly and dainty, loves being on her back and cuddles with my husband when he comes home from work, My harlequin is a mama's boy and let's everyone know it. The greenwing is so sweet and playful already. I also have adopted a caught in the wild 22 year old blue fronted amazon. My husband is trying to train him in the evenings. But he is the type of bird that is almost a hands off, but with love and patience I think he will come around. We love our birds. They are a constant part of our lives and a definite part of the family.

    Hello Trish, I live in pensacola and have a big bay green wing that just turned 6 months today. I have had her since she was 4 weeks old. Problem now is she won't stop with the handfeeding. She now gets her handfeeding meal in the mornings and early evenings, but she also eats her regular bowl of food I give her throughout the day. I think she is a female cause of her size. What a sweet wonderful bird I have! I soo love this girl, MANGO. Please give me your advice.

Hi there, I have had a pleccy for about 5 years and he is in a 4 foot tank with a couple of eupterus (1 I have had for about 11 years and the other 7, I think). Unfortunately the cichlid colony have slowly thinned over the last couple of years to have 2 remaining (not adding more until we do work to the house and after tank is moved). The pleccy, over the last week has developed pink cheeks and nostrils (as if they are bruised or filled with blood) and is hardly moving or feeding. I have done a 50% water change and gravel vacuum, but not sure of my next step. Suggestions as to what it might be and how to treat?

I have a 60-gallon tank, and at Petsmart the people say these things get 14 inches! Is this true? Will I need to get more than one?

    No they aren't schooling fish they get about that size maybe smaller in aquarium though.
  • Justin - 2013-08-06
    Okay, what you really need is a large tank setup. They can't live well on their own.They need to be in schools of three to five for maximum mental health.
  • Zack Bradford - 2013-12-16
    Yea, they definitely need to be in odd groups. They won't make it to 14 in your tank, I had a 55 and there just wasn't enough space for them, sorry to say but you'll be lucky if they make it to about 8 inches. I only say that because your tank mates will have a big play on them, say you have a fish like barbs for example. The bala will get skittish and will jolt into the glass and continue to knock itself out. But cool fish give the tank character and you'll definitely need a bigger tank if you want them to thrive not just survive. Feel free to ask about other fish as well if idk I wont bs ya.
