Rest in Peace, She-Ra

Today I brought home a very sick little female betta. I had gone out wanting to start rescuing bettas again after taking a break due to complications. This was also my first ever female betta, so I was excited, yet sad at the same time. That is because I knew she would die. Her condition was severe, and even though I hoped a miracle could help her, she died just a few minutes ago. I took her because all living things deserve to be comfortable and loved when they die. And I knew she, at the bottom of the betta shelf placed at the height of my knees, needed that love and comfort. Thankfully (and just barely) she did NOT die in a little cup. She died in a heated tank, in a home with someone who cared. And that was the best thing I could give this tiny girl. Rest in peace, and enjoy swimming around with your friends up there. XOXO.

Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!

That's so kind of you, to help her out like that. I bet of she could have, she would've smiled. It's good she got to leave happy.

Thank you, that's very sweet! I do wish they could smile, so you could see that they are happy, or at least relieved.
