I wouldn't call myself admirable, I am just someone trying to swim with a fishy's tail. How would I like to be flushed down the toilet alive? How would I like to live my life only to one day be incovinent (sp?) and fed to some hungry animal? And now that I have 'em why should I treat it like sheet and love\take care of only my fish. Neglecting one while taking care of others makes no sense at all. Now take to mind the fact the minnows I found at a bus stop it wasn't my choice to have them either. I don't like goldfish but what makes one lost unwanted soul different from another?
