Is it difficult to find pet friendly apartments? I'm moving out at the end of the year and will likely be living alone cause it's difficult to find roommates that understand and respect illnesses but I'm scared about getting isolated so was considering adopting a cat (or dog but idk if I could keep up with that energy lol unless I got an old one) and your post just made that a far more serious option for me

I just went on Zillow and was able to select “allows pets” as an option and it was super helpful! Also, if you are chronically ill (mentally or physically), you can get your doctor to sign a note saying that you need a pet as a companion animal (different than a service animal btw). That’s what my last roommate did and she was able to keep her cat in a complex that didn’t normally allow pets (legally they have to let you because of disability accommodations.) Hope this helps!

Well, if it collapsed it certainly would be~

You see, Pennsylvania is very famous for a certain resource: coal. It runs in veins all across the state. And Centralia, Pennsylvania, was built on top of one as a coal mining town.

And then one day, they lit the town dump on fire to clear some of the trash.

It was connected to a coal vein.

That coal vein caught fire. And burned. And burned. And burned underground. And has been burning for at least 55 years. C:

There are spots where pets can’t walk on the ground because the ground is too hot.

This, btw, was the town that inspired the original Silent Hill game.

Idaho boy injured, family dog killed by government 'cyanide bomb'
A "cyanide bomb" planted by U.S. predator-control agents targeting coyotes near homes and hiking trails on BLM land in Idaho exploded when a boy handled the device, injuring him and killing his dog, authorities and relatives said on Friday.

SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - A “cyanide bomb” planted by U.S. predator-control agents targeting coyotes near homes and hiking trails in Idaho exploded when a boy handled the device, injuring him and killing his dog, authorities and relatives said on Friday.

Canyon Mansfield, 14, was playing with his yellow Labrador retriever, Casey, on Thursday afternoon near his home east of Pocatello when he saw what he thought was a sprinkler head on the ground and touched the device, causing it to detonate.

The explosion sprayed the boy and his 3-year-old, 90-pound (40 kg) pet with toxic cyanide gas, according to the boy’s mother, Theresa Mansfield.

“Canyon said there was a bang like a bomb, then an explosion of an orange substance that covered him and Casey, who was writhing in pain on the ground before he died right in front of Canyon,” she said.

Her husband, Pocatello physician Mark Mansfield, rushed to the scene and pounded on the dog’s chest in a futile effort to revive the animal.

The family and first-responders underwent decontamination procedures and the boy, who was sprayed in the face, was tested for cyanide poisoning at a hospital for the second time Friday, officials and family members said.

The device, called an M-44, was among several placed in the area by Wildlife Services, an arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that targets coyotes, wolves, cougars, foxes and other animals considered nuisances to farms and ranches.

The agency has been sued by conservation groups claiming that its programs to poison, trap and shoot various predator species violate federal environmental and wildlife protection laws.

He’s not a pet.

Ya’ll need to get on Netflix right now and freaking watch Trollhunters.

My dad confessed to me the other day he’s actually warmed up to my cat these past years ever since I left home, and it’s honestly quite charming seeing him -my dad, a buff sportsman- interact with her.
