feeling guilty about Leo dying

I feel guilty that he died. Is it bad for me to stress about it?

Aww. What happened to him? :(

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

It's normal to stress over the loss of our beloved pets. They become part of our daily lives.

My condolences.

Im sorry to hear that, I know how you feel. When my boy jumped out I did not see him and stood on him and killed him outright, I was gutted and felt sick

It normal to feel upset and stressed when any member of the family dies. Big hugs to you xx

I'm so sorry for your loss. :( I know exactly how you feel, I always wonder if there was something I could have done, but sometimes these things are out of your control. It's wonderful that you care so much when too many people don't care enough, but don't beat yourself up about it, your fishy wouldn't want that. :)

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

You can't blame yourself. "Bad things happen, but you can still live," is a good quote for this situation. You can honor the little guy by making sure it doesn't happen again.

I'm sorry this happened, but please don't beat yourself up about it. Funny for me to say that because I ALWAYS beat myself up when I lose a loved pet. Can't be helped though.
