Any entomologists in the house?
I've been getting these weird bug bites recently. I think they're from a venomous spider, but I don't know which.
The bites look like chiggers, but they all come in small pairs and itch a whole fuckton more than chigger bites. I've also noticed that my skin just scrapes right off and scabs when I itch them. They've begun to show up more and more every night, and I'm a little worried.
I don't think it's a brown recluse (there's not really any tissue death). I've also talked to my landlord about the possibility of it being a small rodent. What makes the most sense here, /an/?
By the way, I live in suburban Kentucky, 30 miles south of Cincinnati

my 19 y/o cat is..well, getting old. In the last time, he barely eats anything, is meowing all the time (and perhaps every time he's moving), he can't roll in anymore, sleeps by..dunno..boxsitting-mode?
He drinks a bit of water and lots of cat milk..
He is furthermore only skin and bones..
Any idea what to do so he gets a bit more fitter?

I trapped a garden-eating groundhog in a raccoon trap. She seems pretty chill right now, but if she becomes distressed before my car gets out of the shop (allowing me to relocate her), I feel that it would be merciful terminate her. To do this, I plan on affixing a noose to a sturdy handle, leading her out of the cage, and swiftly cutting her throat with my razor-sharp Bowie knife. There is an ordinance against discharging firearms.
Is there a better way to do this?
Tips for skinning and dressing a groundhog?
Tips for cooking with groundhog?
My Dad taught me to not kill anything that I didn't intend to eat, or that didn't intend to eat me.

So I have a dragon goby, Actually 2. Well, HAD. They shared a tank with some Colombian Sharks and Channel Cats. Thing is, 2 weeks later, Both are gone. As in, Nothing. Nada, Zilch. No body, No Ammonia or smell in the water. I moved ornaments, sifted through the gravel, Checked the plants, checked INSIDE The plants and the ornaments, Checked the filter, inside it as well, checked the ground around the tank, even underneath it. The fuckers have just up and gone. It's like they've decided I'm just a shitty owner and just grew legs and walked off. They've been eating shrimp pellets, they've been active. Are they dead? Could a half dozen catfish completely eat everything including the bones? Is it somehow just hiding really really well?
