How does one go about taking care of a pet?


#1

My trappers keep befriending small forest animals, that then starve to death because they don’t eat animal feed or hearthling food. How does one feed squirrels and raccoons?


#2

The ones I had in my town went to eat from the vegetables on their own


#3

Wah, they are! So how do they keep dying, then? They don’t seem to go outside the walls, so I can’t imagine they’re eaten by wolves or something. I’m going to see if I can keep a closer eye on them and figure out when and how they’re dying.


#4

If the food is inside a container (crate, chest), they can’t eat it. You should leave food in a stockpile near where the pets are, otherwise they don’t know how to reach the food.


#5

Oh. Okay. That seems difficult to pick up on without being told, but I guess it makes sense.


#6

my trapper gets a bunch of foxes and squirrels tamed and leaves then at the trapping place, they help themselves to the trapper’s food basket and confuses me when I try to check on the trapper.
at least they increase town morale

Didn’t you want everyone playing with Necromancer class? Here we see an example of a dead thread being necromance’d back to life 3 years later :joy:

( I’m just kidding btw, @RandomGuy - please don’t mind me :smiley: )
