People are really insensitive about animals they don't understand. They think it's wierd we get so attached to our fish. When I thought my rat Jekyll was dying, someone suggested I just get another because they are only $20. They don't understand how our fish and small pets that they would never keep could mean as much to us as a dog or cat means to them. *hugs*

Life.

Thanks Bombalurina, I wish he would just not suffer.... On top of him dying, I have people yelling at me for other issues like how I am supposed to pay my bill for the repairs on my car...My father is atleats supportive and said "If money is your problem then you don't have a problem." But other family members just keep yelling at me while I am watching my Betta die...

Yeah, a fuzzy chick is pretty hard to resist. But remember you gotta do what's right for your sanity, 'kay? The guy can wait but once your sanity goes, it's gone. Trust me, I know.

Okami: I hope no one on the forum was making fun of you about your betta dying. :( I'm really sorry about your guy. You worked so hard on his tank too.

Who would do something like that? If they do, report it and I'll set the person straight.
