Looking for advice, not just showing off my cat
My cat is 14 years old now. I still live with my parents but in a month I'm moving out.
The dilemma is wether it would be a good idea to take my cat with me.
I mainly want to do this because my mom is allergic and because of this my cat is not allowed in the house anymore since 5 years ago.
I do take him to my room at night, in winter he loves it, just cuddles and sleeps all night long. Now he wakes me up in the middle of the night and I have to take him outside. So he really enjoys good weather...
I am worried because where I am going to live is very nearby but between the two places is a big road. So if he would ever try to go back 'home', he would probably die trying.
If I would make him move, I would wait untill winter for sure..
also, if I wouldn't take him there I want a kitten... but I kinda feel like I'm cheating, even by just thinking about taking a kitten...

Hey /an/, a couple questions about giardia.
My puppy had it about two months ago, took the pills, went back for the recheck and, though her poop was pretty much normal, she tested positive. The vet told us that it was possible she was just going to test positive forever and be asymptomatic, but sent us home with some probiotics. We fed them to her, everything was normal, they told us not to bother coming back to test again if she was acting okay. Now, all of a sudden, she's started having liquid shits during the night again, and pooping inconsistently early every morning. Is it possible that it might just come and go for her?

Can dogs be born with only an undercoat, and no guard hairs?
Humphrey is shedding his coat so I was combing him out and noticed a distinct lack of guard hairs.
As I was combing him out because he's summer shedding all the places where he was combed out basically removed all the hair except for the fine new hairs growing in.
Now I've had double coated dogs before but I've never had a dog shed like this ever. I can't find a single guard hair. Humphrey's always been UNUSUALLY soft, but I never thought too much about it. But now I'm wondering if perhaps Humphrey was born with a mutation that causes him to only grow undercoat? The only place I found guard hairs are along his mane where his hair grows much longer than the rest of him, which actually explains why he has such a mane in the first place.
If he does have a mutation that causes him to only grow undercoat and no guard hairs, is that cause for concern?
On a slightly differing note, I saved all the undercoat we brushed off him and I'm going to try felting with it as it's pretty fucking soft, and a nice color. Comparable to baby alpaca in texture IMO.
