same thing here. i had a cat and i was cleaning my sorority tank (when i had one...) i had 3 VTs, and 1 CT, i set them on my desk in containers with a light (since it was almost dark or so)
so i left the room to get water and i come back check on my girls, MY CT GIRL IS MISSING! am like "oh my god, oh my god where is she?" i checked all over the floor my dad and brothers come in to help, you know what i didn't check? she was nearly off the cliff on the desk, i hurriedly put into the cup and she made it.
i almost had a heart attack, i would never let my girls die like that to bad all myy girls back then died by fungus, since my mom picked up "ick attack" i don't blame my mom though
