    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

Hi I have a cat. It is just like he likes to scratch things a lot. I want to declaw him but then what if he can't climb on to sofas or stuff like that?

    If you have your cat declawed, he will be perfectly fine cuz he can jump on the sofa, bed etc. He just won't be able to destroy things. If the cat is an outdoor cat - then you might wish to reconsider. If he stays oin the home, on the porch etc - no problem. However, if he is out and about walking the neighborhood, he won't be able to climb trees.
  • Sharon - 2012-04-19
    I DO NOT recommend you declawing your pet cat for several reasons. Scratching is a cat characteristic and if they are unable to do this, they could compensate with fierce biting and you can't vry well pull ther teeth. Declawing a cat could cause elimination issues because their feet can no longer tolerate the feel of the cat litter on their sensitive feet. Declawing a cat could cause behavioral problems since it is an extremely painful procedure, one compared to torture. The first joint of the cat's toes are cut off, not just the claws. It would be as if someone had cut your fingers off at the first joint thus the connection in behavioral issues and declawing. You would never be able to let your cat outside because it would have no way of protecting itself against other animals. As long as your have scratching toys for your cat such as a cat tree and treat them with cat nip on these toys, you should have no problem with the cats claws. The other issue is with declawing, the cat runs a high risk of hemmoraging, (heavy bleeding) at the site of the declaw. Myself personally, I would never put a family member in that kind of pain.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-04-20
    They do have a laser procedure now and the cat won't actually know the claws are missing!
  • zookeeper - 2012-05-26
    I have 3 cats all declawed, all climb trees with ease, catch mice, chipmunks and even rabbits. They still think they are scratching the furniture, but no damage is done. I live in a rural area. All my declawed cats have lived a long life 16 - 20+ years.
  • Rebecca M - 2012-06-12
    Declawing is a very controversial subject and one some are obsessively vocal about. I had a talk with my Vet and he declaws all of his cats. He says the procedure has come a long way and its no where as painful as it once was. Also how is declawing any different than spay or nuetering? Or in other words, why is it ok to spay and nueter (the cat is put to sleep, cut open, has vital body parts removed, stitched back up and given pain meds) but not okay to declaw a cat that shreds thousands of dollars in furniture and leaves you bloody every time you play with them. I think people who are so adamantly against deckawing will always have a 'soapbox' ready on many subjects. I, personally, me, myself feel it is okay to declaw uour own cat if it will always remain an indoor cat. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just dont force yours down my throat.
  • A bengal owner - 2013-11-13
    A cat doesn't need its uterus or testicles to live a happy normal life. However scratching is a natural and important part of a cats life... they use scratching to mark their territory and to climb. Declawing is the same as clipping a bird's wings so it can never fly again. If you declaw a cat you are handicapping it.... like removing a human's fingers. It is sad to see some people (in the US mostly?) still think this procedure is excusable for pathetic reasons. Preventing inappropriate scratching is a matter of training and providing scratchers for kitty. Declawing (Onychectomy) is mutilation and the rest of the world have made it illegal for good reason. No matter how advanced and ''progressed'' this procedure may have become the after effects on a cat's well being, happiness, confidence and behaviour cannot be discounted.

    Taylor Please do not have your cats declawed, it is dangerous. There is a new product that we use on all 6 of our cats called Kitty Caps nails for cats and you get them through Petsmart  either online or in their business. They have different sizes and different colors to choose from. We use pink and purples for our females and blues and reds for the boys. They're so cute... and healthy... they're easy to apply. And they last for weeks. They can't tear your furniture up because the caps are made of soft plastics. Go check them out..    Taylor..if you declaw your cat it will cause different types of damage to his feet. To declaw him they don't remove the nails they cut the toes off.. it will be like you having your fingers cut off at the first knuckle past the finger nails.. and it is extremely painful. It will destroy their paws.. and if they were to ever get out for any reason.. they would never be able to fend for them selves. That is their only protection againt other critters. Anyway please check into the cat caps .. you will be pleased.
  • morons - 2014-03-17
    Soapboxers out in full force here. You guys are full of it... Just like the 'only adopt' soapboxers. All of my cats have been declawed. None of them experience a single problem. I had ONE cat that was not declawed and he shred almost everything. One single cat out of 6 over the years, and he destroys my favorite couch. Everything that he could work his claws on, he did. If you want an indoor cat, and don't want your stuff ripped to shreds, you can disregard the soapboxers, they only want to beat a drum.. And they would love for you to beat it too.

    cats NEED their claws, they need them for balance, to mark terriorty to feel safe, they won't even use the litter box correctly! if you get them declawed you'll have a biting scared cat on your hands.cat owns should know that cats have claws and if they dont have posts to scratch on they wreck your couchs and walls, but surgiclly taking off finger nails is wrong! i suggest every cat owner who is thinking about getting their cat declawed watch the paw project on netflix.

    Ok,thanks.But do you know of any spiny eels that can live in a 55?
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-10-22
    Did you read the description of this fish above, these bad boys reach 27.6 inches (70.00 cm)! There are many variables with fish, and one of them is the size it is when you purchase it from a supplier and the size it is as an adult. Suppliers are usually selling juveniles and will talk to you about their needs at the time of purchase. But of course, we all plan on keeping our pets for their entire lives... so Animal-World talks about the care of an animal over its lifetime. Btw, Liveaquaria is a fine resource and I have purchased many aquatics from them, as well as visited one of their sites.

I have had my T. blondi for a few months now and she is so sweet. I don't hold her unless I have to move her to clean her cage because she is nervous and kicks hairs and I don't want to stress her out. But she never bites or tries to bite. She stays hidden most of the time and if I lift her hide, she runs out just long enough to be seen and then goes back under to hide again. She is a voracious eater--she had her 3rd pinky last week! I have 10 other tarantulas as well. I have 3 rose hairs, the goliath, a greenbottle blue, Indian Ornamental, Gooty Ornamental, Togo starburst, Antilles pink toe, curly hair, and Brazilian salmon bird eater. They are a great hobby and interesting to watch and care for.

Hello, I just bought (Saturday) my first female Theraphosa blondi and I'm really enjoying her. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. She's sweet in nature, I even gently tested her with prongs at the pet store and she showed no agression. Naturally she's skittish so I have to go really, really, really slow in my movements. This morning I gently pet her legs without a fuss. Maybe (and I expect) her to change in time, maybe when she becomes sexually mature her temper will be more agressive. Now she measure about 6 inches in leg span, maybe more. I haven't found a name for her yet but I will find soon.
I just felt like sharing with you my new T. blondi.
Have a nice day!
PF

    Awesome! I'm planning on getting one as a spiderling and I'm hoping I can teach it to be extremely playful. I heard Blondis are mean but on this site I've seen a few examples of them being nice. But I would want to hold her and find ways to play with her so I'm hoping. If you could give me any advice I would really appreciate it! My emaik is green.shoelace2@gmail.com

    Try feeding her something that she has never eaten before like a lizard. I had the same problem for a little bit she was just sick of her mouse only diet.
  • Derek Ross - 2014-10-22
    Uh, actually, to both of you (hoping its not too late, for then or any new current or future tarantulas) its not healthy to feed them mammals or other small animals like rodents or reptiles. Terrestrial tarantulas mostly eat large insects and very rarely animals, as they dont have all the proper enzymes to break them down and get all the possivle nutrients out of it like theyd be able to by eating a grasshopper and crickets. He is right about changing up the diet though.

I am intrested in finding a breeder of goliath or gargantuan bird spiders. I would prefer zebra striped or pink foot. I am a knowlegable exotic pet owner who has raised several large reptiles and black emperor scorpions from babies to adult and want to move on to arachnids with the most beautiful exotic. I am smart enough to kow these are not handled pets, but I want to raise a potential mating male or female that can produce excellent young. Looking for info on ordering and price of specimen. Any info is appreciated. My email is breese343@yahoo.com
