Even though I'm a bit late to the thread I just wanted to say how terribly sorry I am for you. I could never imagine having to give up any of my fish, especially in such a horrid way.

You're a much braver person than I am, if anybody ever threatened my animals in such a way I would have packed up and left to to a relatives house.

I'm glad you're staying on the forum though. Teeney was one of the first bettas I ever read about when I first joined the forums. I remember how excited you were about getting her a 10 gallon.

I'm also glad that Teeney was placed in a good home. It was a truly selfless thing you did.

And of course, as others have said, if you feel like you need someone to speak to I'm always available.

Teeney looks so cute! Why would your dad hurt animals? They have feelings too ya know. I'm very sorry Teeney had to go. That was your only choice. At least you know she's happy! Maybe you can check with the guy every once in a while. I always love animals prettiest to ugliest. Farewell, Teeney.

Animals take the fear and anxiety out of me, so I am going to have my cat and fish certified as "Emotional Support Animals" by my therapist So by law I can live anywhere I want, even in places that say no pets allowed. I wont even have to pay any pet deposits either. You can even take Emotional Support animals to college too If your Betta was already an emotional support animal your dad would not have been able to make you get rid of it. I feel bad for what you had to do. At least your Betta will be in good hands. And I'm glad you are going to stay after all!
I just love what you wrote :)

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

The only way to make your dad realize how hurt you are is to tell him straight up or if you think that will cause confrontation you should write him a letter! It might work and even if he doesn't let you get more bettas at least you won't have that weird, icky tension between the two of you. I'm glad you didn't kill your betta :D Just stay strong and stick up for the person you want to be not the person the people around you want to be.

And for all of those people mad at your dad you really need to put it into perspective. Yes he did try and force her to flush her own fish but he was probably mad and people say things when they're mad. Also he was thinking about her health and mental state (she said she was suffering from anxiety). As a parent, you would do anything for your child even and if you're mad and think that a betta fish is part of the problem, sacrificing it wouldn't be that big a deal. Its basic psychology.

He didn't think my betta was the problem.
He knows that taking my animals away is the worst possible thing anyone could ever do to hurt me. Taking away my iPod, phone, computer privelages or tv privelages would suck but not as much as killing my own pet.

I'm so sorry for you! At least Teeny is in a good home.
