I can't believe it!
I was pretty bummed out today after losing Butters. I had some aarons to run after work so I headed into town. I was right by Petco but had made up my mind that I wasn't going to go in. However I was curious to see if the bettas were in better condition after I complained about them. I went back in forth in my head and finally decided to go in.
The bettas were still bad looking. I noticed there were far fewer cups then last week. Sometimes when they don't have enough room on the display they stack them on a shelf in the back of the store. I wandered over and started going through the cups. I wasn't looking to get a new betta since I just lost Butters, I was just looking. I reached to the back and pulled out the last cup and OMG! it was the VT female I had gone back for last week! I know I looked over ever cup and she wasn't there. I asked an employee and she said they had pulled all the bettas off the display and some had been in the back and thats probably where she had been. I couldn't believe it. So of course I wasn't going to leave without her.
I first I felt kind of bad but I know Butters would have wanted me to rescue her.
I have named her Kismet which means "fate". Photos coming soon!
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
