Please let me know what you think.
>Cat people: Generally the least likely to take their pet to the vet, indoor cat owners know a little bit more about what the fuck they're talking about, outdoor cat owners generally know nothing about proper cat care and will excuse lazyness for "muh nature" despite not living anywhere near wilderness.
>Dog lovers: Usually know more about what they're talking about than cat people, but can be sometimes be more horribly ignorant then the worst outdoor cat owner. Dog lovers don't have as much infighting as cat people, but mutt vs purebred threads sometimes come up.
>Crow bros: Crow bros really fucking love crows, and are usually the least terrible people on /an/ given the low percentage of crow owners, along with their huge respect for intelligent species. Crow bros sometimes can be really annoying when it comes to other bird threads, but then again they really fucking love crows.
>Foxfags: While foxes can be pretty cute in the wild, foxfags have a tendency to know the least amount of their favorite animal, they will often point to the Belyeav experiment and will try to justify their plans to buy wild animals, not fully understanding that Belyeav foxes are not sold anywhere outside of Russia. The foxfags that do understand that foxes are wild animals are pretty cool, though.
>Reptile caretakers: They usually know a TON when it comes to their prefered pet. Reptile caretakers are usually not very annoying outside of reptile threads. Even if they may annoy people with their pet in real life, on /an/ they are pretty chill.
>Wolf fuckers: FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD, AVOID THESE THREADS AT ALL COSTS. The few that DO know what they're talking about will often annoy you about how they are able to make nature submit to their will, and their perfect training methods. Wolf fuckers happen to have the largest percentage of people that want to have sex with their animals.
>Fish keepers: pretty chill.
What to do about a stray?

So tonight when I left for work, I noticed a dog cross my driveway. I've noticed it on our street before but usually in someone's yard so I assumed it to be, unfortunately, an outside dog. It looks like a Lab/Husky mix. About five minutes into my drive to work, I realized I had forgotten something so I turned around to fetch it. Upon leaving my street for the second time this evening, I saw the same dog by the redlight. I decided to pull over and see if I couldn't coax it to me. Naturally, it wanted nothing to do with me but I couldn't help but think about it during the rest of my drive. Sure I could call animal control but then this poor mutt would end up being killed in a shelter. On the other hand, it's so damn gorgeous that it might get adopted fine. Might. Should I try to catch it? My finance could help but I'm afraid we would scare it into an oncoming car. What would you guys do?
TL;DR What would you do about a stray on your street?
Cuban Knight Anole

Tonight...As a /an/ cesspool-lurker I bring to you this evening a unearthed photo of terribad quality, of my Cuban Knight Anole, Fidel. I was young, and thus my father had something to do with the obvious nametroll. I demurred, ecstatic at the possibility of injecting my childhood prose with political sterotyping. Sadly, Fidel passed from this world in my teenage years, so I don't recall the final date.
I am posting this as testament to him, as a partial incarnation of the great lizard god XULXUtUXUTHUU--THUU-Thu-FWEE!
He existed in this particular incarnation At least 10 years, I suppose. He originally started as small as a bookmark, or pencil. Over the course of three years, fed on a succulent diet of brown Petco crickets, of which his tastes slowly refined until he would only eat them when additionally urged to action with the additional challenge of the biggest grasshoppers you could dare to capture. He simply ceased to eat the black, fat-bodied crickets you might find in the wild most often.
But the sun-lamp of XULXUtUXUTHUU--THUU-Thu-FWEE! was tinged blue by the vitamin ravings that were in common use of the stores of the time. If it added power to him or not will never be known, but the blue casting of the space in which he inhabited with the lamp caused his transcendence. From natural, or perhaps horrific places of imprisonment, he was then freed into a new imprisonment, yet one empowered to blur the line from mere lizard....TO BEING OF UNIMAGINABLE POWER & KNOWLEDGE.
All HAIL XULXUtUXUTHUU--THUU-Thu-FWEE! (Or Fidel)
TLDR: He grew to over 3 feet long, from nose to tail. His tail was 2 feet by itself. He was incredibly easy to care for, and despite never being handled I was fond of him. I was always afraid he would break his tail in attempt to flee, but he never did. I could describe him more...
