Yup all the fins grow back with treatment and care. I still think it's cruel and honestly insulting to me who owns a blind cat to have her say they are not worthy of living. She should have said we might as well shoot cripple humans too and take out my aunt who's missing a leg while we are at it, drown babies with mental deficiencies, and hang people who have spinal injuries and now have to live a life in a wheel chair. crippled animals deserve to live as much as healthy ones, birds with broken wings get along just fine in captivity, three legged dogs well one of the ones I know DOES AGILITY AND WINS. Blind cats I said my part I own one, horses with bad legs can still survive so long as they are not ridden, and my aunt despite one leg left after an accident still plays soccer. Gesh some people, it makes me wonder if they were ever hugged as children T.T and if they have that train of thought where they got the idea they could play god and decide who was worthy of life and who wasn't (Hitler). Sorry if I offend with that but god, seriously saying crippled things don't deserve to live is not only wrong but looking at a human point a view it's pretty much what the Nazi's said.
I agree with Molly, tell her to ignore the fish, it's your damn fish not hers. She doesn't have to touch it or look at it if it makes her happy.
And Molly I think it has to do with jealousy, sometimes they wonder if we love the animals more than them. My ex boyfriend openly admitted to me once he thought I cared more about my cat than him because I skipped our date to take her to the vet and after that day he couldn't stand my cat and always made up crazy stories about her attacking him. In the end it got so bad he told me to have her put down because she had a bladder infection and I dumped him. My house, my cat, my law. I also had a boyfriend who said I was only seeing him but I was married to my show horse Lucky Memory...which was kind of true but he was cool that I enjoyed spending so much time with my horse and despite the fact he was afraid of horses he tried to bond with Lucky too (figured out the way to my heart is through my horse, Lucky i like the gay best friend who has to pass approval). Even though we were broken up over different issues when Lucky died he called me up and said I cried a little too when he heard the news just because he knew I loved that horse so much.
