How to build a multi level cat tree like those found in pet stores.
My sister has a cat that has to eat special diet food. Problem is that she runs a shelter and has 6 other cats who would gobble up the food given the opertunity. Since feeding expensive diet kibble to all the others is not feesable and not healthy for the others, I thought maybe we could come up with an idea of an auto feeder that only goes off when the one cat comes near. Kinda like the pet doors that keep racoons and other animals out, and only let your pet come in with the special collar. And daily meals are not an option at this point with another finicky cat that goes on huger strikes in the shelter. Any ideas?

I have a rabbit in a large cage in the garage. I would like to give it more room for exercise, but don't want to have it loose chewing everything up. I'm thinking of making a rabbit run to other parts of the garage or house. Like a long and very skinny cage with a larger cage at either end, or hubs with trails in-between.
I need to attach two pieces of PET together, and I need a very strong joint.

Wyhen I start college, I'm going to have my own house but I'm wondering what type of dog would fit. I'm thinking something medium sized, something that can occupy itself for a while, and something that would be okay when I went to work. Can anyone suggest a particular breed? Thanks, Shantara

Our dog likes to lay his front half on the armrest between us in the front seat of the car. But his back half is not comfortable. We want to make a portable/collapsable box that will extend from the arm rest to the back seat with supports on the sides that go over the hump on the floor. Kind of an inverted T shape with supports on each side. Need the supports to fold up somehow so we can store it in the trunk. Appreciate any help!
Hi i am getting a new guinea pig shortly, i have a lot of experience with them over the Easter weekend, for four days, i will be camping up in the mountains and will have to leave it behind as it will be roughly 7-8 weeks old, will it be OK left alone? she will have a spot to hide in her cage and will have the company of a old guinea pig my main two problems are we have a young dog who stalks the guinea pig while its in its cage, and it may terrify them if i'm not around two, the older guinea pig may attack the smaller one, like nip its ears, etc my question, after all that is buy the guinea pig now (holiday in two weeks) or after the holiday leaving it with some else or getting someone to drop in is not an option

We are beguinning studies to create new objects with recycled PET bottles. Could you present us to peoples who are working in the same theme in U.S.? Thank you! Miriam Mitsuko Utsumi and Takashi Utsumi www.utsumi.com.br/pet
Question by Takashi Utsumi | last reply
Aloha, I am working on recycled PET plastic for art projects. I have read everything that I can find on melting clear PET and reforming it. My issue is it keeping it clear or at least translucent for the art projects. I cut clear water bottles into small pieces and place on a cookie sheet and place in 500F degree oven. In about 3 mins it is liquid, still clear, and in the shape of the round pizza pan it is in. Almost immediately after I pull it out it begins to cool and turn white and opaque. So, my question is, is there something I can do to keep it clear? Is there possibly a cooling process to do this? Maybe slowly drop the temperature? Any help or tips will be greatly appreciated. Aloha, Tim

I got her from the pet store a week or two ago and her coat was fine. But every time she cleans herself, her fur, especially in the butt area gets clumpy and yellow, but none of it falls out. And if I bathe her, it's back to normal until a day or two. What's going on?

My hamster recently died and I am thinking of getting another pet that will fit in the cage. I don't want fish. I have only had a cat and a hamster ever so if the animal is for more experienced owners than don't suggest it. Also if it is an animal that is hard to care for could you tell me that from past experiences. Some of my thoughts are a type of snake, a type of turtle, a possible lizard, and any other reptile or mammal that is good for beginners.

I had an Invisible Fence installed in my yard. I have two small dogs that are inside most of the time. I purchased two Invisible Fence "Pet Keepers" which are 5" square transmitters that are used as a fence for inside the house. These little devices are $150 each. I have had mine for awhile but one wasn't working until the dog was right next to it. I took it into the Invisible Fence store and they told me there was only a once year warranty. I purchased another very painfully. I'm really tired of the racket they have going...selling batteries for $15 each, charging around a hundred bucks everytime the line outside is damaged and needs repair. I brought home the old one...(IFA 12 transmitter). IF told me that the antenna may have gone bad or something but they don't repair..why would they when they can sell you another for $150? Can anyone tell me how this transmitter could possibly be repaired? If so, I'll use it elsewhere in my home!?

Now that we've moved, Clicquot doesn't have access to the outdoors to hunt, hide and frolic like she used to. She's ten years old now, and starting to slow down a bit anyway, but I don't want her to get the indoor-cat-cabin-fever-crazy-sickness. She's not much of one for toys or lasers or anything, but she's already started chasing imaginary things! I'm worried that before long she'll start talking to herself.

Our 8 year old fixed male cat has decided he hates a fixed female in the house. He only attacks her, we thought fixing her would help, but it did not...he stalks her, and attacks her and bites her around the neck. We thought if we could put a low frequency shock type halter on him so when he gets within a few feet of her it would give him a small shock so he would avoid her. She of course would also have to have a collar on to "see" him coming. We have tried many different things, at this point she is safe in a separate room with a screen door, but that isn't fair to her or the other cats. Thank you and no I do NOT like the idea of shocking him, but I also do no like the fact she can be laying sleeping in a window, doing nothing wrong and he just jumps her. BTW..he is a very large Maine Coon/Siamese mix..about 18 lbs and she is a domestic short hair about 8 lbs...so it is never fair.

MAIN QUESTION: Does anyone know how to build a pet door like this? Secondary (less important) question : How can I make two pet doors that open this way, but only one collar opens one door? I need to create a three way split in my house, [ A | B | C ] one cat can access part A but not part C. One cat can access part C but not A. Both can access part B. I would like to create two pet doors that open by sensing magnets or radio frequencies that can be attached to their collars.

Hello, I was watching a video where someone was using a mailing tube a hedgehog slide. I wanted to do the same with our heggie as he loves to burrow and will dive off any ledge he can find if we don't watch him. I think the one she used was 3in, but our heggie needs a 4in round and since here is a bit rounder; it needs to be about 3-4ft as well, though we could cut it down. I would like to find an alternative that is clear or semi-clear as it would be nice to be able to see him in the tube as he slides. It also needs to be fairly inexpensive. For anyone interested, our heggies name happens to be Burrow as well. Maybe a fairy whispered it my ear because we choose the name when he was no larger than a large spiky button and it was 6 weeks before we could bring him home. He has wobbly hedgehog syndrome and we really want him to have some fun. Thanks for any help, Liocorno

We have a cat that's about 13 years old and he's developed arthritis in his hips (as diagnosed by the vet.) We're obviously taking the vet's advice about medication, but since he hates taking pills I was wondering if anyone had other ways to ease his pain a bit. He's definitely not in constant pain - this was diagnosed very early and by accident (getting x-rayed for something else) - it seems to mostly be weather and fatigue related. He still plays like a kitten. I've seen commercials for things you mist into water dishes and stuff, does any of that work? What helps people with arthritis? I know he would be happier if I could come up with some non-pill ways to help him manage!

I found an old dog shock collar on my street with a broken collar(not reciever), can i make a remote to make it shock, or turn it into a taser? Basically i want something that i can have fun with, to shock my friends, or my other idea (since i have a mildly aggressive pit bull, would be to make a remote, so when he is outdoors and goes after strangers i can send the small shock it outputs to help train him to not act that way. Please help me figure this out, as i am a geek but know little about electronics when it comes to building them. Thanks. oh also the collar is a " Petsafe PIF-275" collar if this helps at all in figuring out how to do this.

I HAVE A PET MINI CRAB & YESTERDAY IT HAD FOAMY BUBBLES COMMIN OUT OF THE FRONT IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS TAKIN A BUBBLE BATH OR SOMETHIN...
I'm making some bowls for a gift with PET bottles and I was wondering if there's a way to dye the PET, well an easy way, the homemade kind. I did a little research and basically found out that it can be done industrially with some expensive equipment and industrial heat resistant dyes, I'm thinking of using glass paint, any other suggestions. Thanks in advance.

These folks loved their dogs so much that they made sweaters from their fur after they passed away. This was no easy task as thousands of hairs had to be harvested from brushes and carpets. The result is apparently warm and water-resistant as well as creepy, but with all the cat hair I keep vacuuming up maybe I can get a nice coat from my own home. BBC linkvia Treehugger

I checked the prices and (gasp!) couldn't believe it. http://www.pet-super-store.com/pet-supplies/dog-training-collars/ I'd like to learn how to do things on my own, continue learning, but I cannot find plans to make a shock collar with remote. No need for all the bells and whistles, just 2 or 3 settings. Training is so much easier with these and doesn't hurt pooch either. Any help would be appreciated.
Question by moreisless | last reply
Construction is nearing completion in Taipei of a plastic bottle building. Technically a temporary structure, "the world's lightest, movable, breathable environmental miracle" (say the designers) is also strong enough to withstand typhoons and earthquakes. The building will eventually become an exhibition space. Much is being made of the structure's "green" credentials - LED lighting, and particularly the construction material; 1,500,000 recycled PET bottles. That sounds great, and in most of the news coverage of the structure (such as the BBC and Treehugger) it sounds like the building is built directly of bottles that have been re-shaped somehow (maybe squashed in a heated mould). The bottles even have lids, and they talk about filling them with air, water or sand to change the thermal properties of the building.. It turns out, though, that the building material is not "PET bottles", but "PET bottles chopped up, melted and re-formed into much thicker-walled bottles intended solely for building", branded as Polli-Bricks. OK, still recycled, still greener than most building materials, but it smacks of spin to just say the building is built of bottles. The Polli-Bricks are impressive - individually nice to look at, and fitting together snugly "like Lego" - but there is no indication of how much energy is spent creating them. They are made by Hymini, but the Hymini website flashes up all sorts of alarms with my firewall and anti-virus as an "attack site". There is more information at Miniwiz as well, but some of the links there also trigger alarms. Maybe I'm being a wet blanket. It is a nice building, after all. What do you think? GreenMuze article
