    So my employees and I have been feeding this stray cat for about 3 months now, but now that it's getting cold out I decided to take her home with me last night. She lets everyone pet her, but she was terrified when I picked her up and put her in the cat carrier. I already have a cat, so I put the stray in the bathroom for her to get settled in, and also until she goes to the vet on Wednesday to get a checkup. She got a lot better since last night, but is still having some problems settling in. I want some advice on how to get her aquaintanced with my cat I already have. And also, she hasn't used the litter box at all yet, and instead goes on the floor. How could I get her accustomed to the litterbox? And just all-around comfortable in my house. Thank you!

  • What is the best heat lamp for an anole?

    The lamp I was using for my anole that I was given to from someone stopped working, so now i have to buy another one. I don't have a lot of extra money right now and I know how important it is for them to have light all the time, so I was looking at Ebay for one but there are so many and I don't know which one would be best? There's the different wattages, colors (which I'm not sure why there are?), different brands, sizes, and everything. If you have a lizard, preferably an anole, which lamp and bulb should I get? Also, this might be a stupid question, but is it possible to just use a regular lamp and put in a heat lamp bulb in, or is it not compatable?

  • Is this normal for an anole lizard?

    I got an anole lizard from the beach about a month ago, She came in a tiny cage she was bright green. When I got home, I did some research and found out what I needed to do to take good care of her, so I bought her a huge cage and have a lamp over her during the day. But ever since then, during the day she's dark brown, and at night she turns... show more

  • What are the withdrawal symptoms of heroin?

    My boyfriend of 2 years started using heroin I'm guessing around 4-5 months ago after his accident which he got an extreme pain in his back. But last month he went into detox and a volunteer treatment for a week and now he claims he hasn't done it since. He acts weird sometimes, but he tells me it's just the withdrawal symptoms.

    My boyfriend of 2 years started using heroin I'm guessing around 4-5 months ago after his accident which he got an extreme pain in his back. But last month he went into detox and a volunteer treatment for a week and now he claims he hasn't done it since. He acts weird sometimes, but he tells me it's just the withdrawal symptoms. He gets really tired and falls asleep sitting up, has stomach and headaches, his pupils are normal one minute and then tiny the next, he's irritable, and can't sleep at night. He also has medication for anxiety, which I think also has a role in causing these. I really want to believe him that he hasn't done it since detox, but there are times when I'm not sure. He just makes it seem a lot easier to quit than it is made out to be, which causes me to think he really hasn't. Is it possible that he hasn't done it since then, and are those symptoms of using it or withdrawals? And what should I do to help him. No stupid answers, please.

  • Citation from Maryland?

    I went down to Maryland about 3 weeks ago and I got a citation for "possession" of alcohol. I wasn't drinking, some drunk kid asked me to hold it for them and I happened to get caught with it.

But anyway, I lost the paper that was given to me, and I don't know what to do. I'm not sure if they will send me a letter when the court date is, or if it was on the paper? How long does it usually take for them to send a court date, and if it was on the paper what was I supposed to do? And what's the worse that can happen. I'm really nervous about it, because I never do anything bad and then I get in trouble for something that wasn't even mine. And please, don't make stupid comments, or complete guesses.

  • How could I get it more humid in a reptile tank?

    I just recently got an anole lizard, and have a temperature and humidity thermometer. The temperature isn't difficult to maintain, but I can't keep a consistency of 60-70% humidity as recommended. I spray the tank for a few minutes every hour if possible and it gets up to at least 60 for a few minutes, but then drops down to around 40 again.... show more

At night I keep a blanket on top of the cage to keep the moisture in when I'm sleeping, but I'm not sure what else to do?

  • Is it normal for Anole Lizards to burrow?

    I just bought a green anole lizard less than a week ago, and it was very active. It's been eating, I spray the tank with water at least 5 times a day and feed it one or two crickets daily.

    I just bought a green anole lizard less than a week ago, and it was very active. It's been eating, I spray the tank with water at least 5 times a day and feed it one or two crickets daily. Just this morning, however, it started burrowing in it's "wood chips" (I'm not sure what it really is, but we made sure it was a safe material). It's only been a few hours since it's been buried, so I didn't know if it was normal behavior or not. It's moved from one end of the cage to the other, just to bury itself again. It was acting normal earlier this morning, and ate and everything. Is there anything to worry about?

  • Navel piercing infection?

    I got my belly button pierced two weeks ago. It seemed perfectly fine and everything until I lost the ball on the ring, so I changed it into one of my sister's bars. It's kind of hard to clean since the bar doesn't move around a lot allowing me to clean it. It was fine, but now it's been around 3 days since I changed it and now it... show more

It's kind of hard to clean since the bar doesn't move around a lot allowing me to clean it. It was fine, but now it's been around 3 days since I changed it and now it seems to be swollen and a tiny bit of blood is coming from the top hole. There is also very little yellowish puss coming out, but that was happening prior the piercing change also. Is it an infection? and what is the best thing to do to help it..
