The epitome of happiness won't be found in advancing technology or exploring the stars. True happiness can only be found in the simplicity of farm life.
My aunt and uncle run a goat farm in Lancaster, PA. They aren't Amish, but they do believe in the philosophy of living simply. Every time I visit, it's comfy as fuck.

I'm a huge fucking nerd who loves video games, sci-fi, and anime, but the farm life really is the only one worth living. Raising a family to be self-sustainable and seeing the fruits of your labor is the meaning of life T B H

This fucking piece of shit right here.
I've had this cat since I moved to Texas in 1997. He's fucking 19 years old this year.
In the past year he's discovered pissing and shitting all over the house.
Granted, I don't keep up with the litter box on a daily basis, the best I can do is every other day because of work. However, the litter box never gets unusable.
Whereas in the past he'd largely shit outside, he has begun shitting inside, not in the litter box, but in the corridor leading to my bathroom (tile floor). Also, he's begun pissing on anything soft (everything from my dirty clothes hamper to a pizza bag in the living room).
I've done what my parents did to him when he pisses/shits in bad places, shove his face in it as soon as possible after the fact, but I realize that unless I catch him in the act it likely won't alter his behavior.
He seems to be pissing much, much more than in the past.
What the fuck do I do?

Hi /an/, over the last few days I've been having problems with my dog coming up in welts all over her body. I let her outside for a pee in the early morning and noticed her entire face had swollen up, I took her to the vet as soon as they opened. They gave her an injection to counter it and kept her in for a few hours. Later that night I noticed it start to happen again and I took her to a twenty four hour vet and they gave her oral steroids to take home incase it happened again, of which it did this morning. I've taken her again this morning and they gave her another injection.
I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue? If so, how did you resolve it? I'm working on trying to get to the bottom of the cause and I'm starting by changing the washing powder. If anyone has any methods to eliminate the problem I would be extremely grateful.
Also if anyone has any experience with allergy tests in pets I would love to hear about them, are they worth it?
