Is it possible to try and set boundaries? Ask your mother if she can enforce these boundaries if you decide to make them. Siblings tend to respect boundaries if the parents are supporting them (At least in my house ).

Oh my gosh I still can't get over how you didn't like attack your sister. If I had a sister who did this to one of my fish I would like cut her hair off and like throw her into the pool when it's dirty and green LOL. Times like this make me thankful I only have a half sister and brother half way across the country..

Again I'm sorry for your loss.. Do me a favor and just smack your sister like really hard for me and give me all of the details ok?

There is no way I'd be able control myself if someone did that to one of my bettas; Josh and Max, or my guinea pig, Splee.

This is what I probably would've done:
-picked up who ever did it and thrown them across the room. If they were to fat, I would shove them into a wall.
-then I would kick everyone out of my room (literally) and tend to my injured companion.
- then I would break down into tears

wow.. my gosh. even my CATS know better. i always tell them no, and they actually back off... theyve never even tried fishing for my fish.. and i have a lot of cats..
no offense, but someone really needs to teach that girl a thing or two about respect for animals.. at that age, they really should start knowing better. or if she does, she needs to see a counselor.. -.=;;

my scaley babies:

~ kanda: male wild type traditional plakat
~ tamaki: male blue/orange delta crowntail
~ natsu: male orange veiltail

Yeah, definitely a counselor. This kind of thoughtless brutality starts with animals and ends up with humans. :( I'm very sad your mom isn't disciplining your younger sister when she harms another living creature. It sounds like both mom and sis need some counseling. And older sis needs to just focus on herself, since it sounds like that's all she wants to do anyway.

If someone did that to Akira or Kai...They wouldn't have the chance to run away I'd kick their rears then and there and tell them to get out before I throw 'em out.

Someone at eight should know better...A teenager should know better too. I think they honestly need help OP no offense but hurting animals like Sakura-chan said will lead up to humans in the future.

That is very disturbing... You should see the look on my face...

Behavior like that, without any remorse, is a huge red flag. That's how serial killers start.. It shows compulsive behavior, a damaged concious, and the ability to be violent without feeling guilty over it. You will see this show up when she interacts with other children, will probably start getting in trouble at school, will begin to become more socially reserved, etc.

Sounds like little 8 year old NEEDS a counselor. NEEDS. The 15 year old? A good talking to because her attitude needs to change. Just because she's a teenage girl doesn't allow her to be all-mighty brat with a "I don't care about nuffin!" attitude. She needs to gain some respect and responsibility.

I swear to God, if someone messed with my animals, this would not fly. Animals are the most innocent creatures, what will they do to humans, who are not innocent at all?
