But I took it into my own hands NOT to let irresponsible people like a backyard breeder have my cat (to which I was cursed and yelled at for not letting her have my cat?)

Sorry to say but most people... Are dumb. "too much work for a dog" well... A dog is not a plant. And that said. Even plants need care. And so do fish. :/ I OFFERED a store who had two tall vases (16 inch high, and only 2 inch radius) with bettas, bowls. "no we're fine".
Some plants are hardier to care for than dogs. Many common aquarium fish are also food fish I have one. I say we team up with good Goldfish people and make a Betta and Goldfish proper care awareness group.

going back tostate cruelty laws..i am glad to say after a little digging, here in colorado, the law states that "(2) "Animal" means any living dumb creature." which would thereby include fish, bugs, pretty much all pets.

"any living dumb creature" I work with some of those I don't think anything is stupid. Some may be... Ditsy (I had a betta named that lol) or more "off" but everything has a purpose... From the beetles, to the vultures, to everything else.

I remember my friend worked for a bird shelter. Which snapped necks of birds when they were overrun and the animals would die slowly and painfully. I have rarely met a shelter that REALLY cared.

ChoclateBetta: betta awareness lol :) I've sent out care pamphlets with rescue bettas and bred bettas, and have talked to some of those people - the fish do well and they learned things they never knew! Approach is everything

This is true, and he is quite smart, to further clarify the term dumb they use in the law doesnt mean stupid though.
Here's the definition of the type of dumb that is used in the law here, taken from the merriam Webster website
"Main Entry: 1dumb
Pronunciation: \ˈdəm\
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English; akin to Old High German tumb mute
Date: before 12th century
1 a : lacking the human power of speech <dumb animals> b of a person often offensive : lacking the ability to speak
2 : temporarily unable to speak (as from shock or astonishment) <struck dumb with fear>
3 : not expressed in uttered words <dumb grief>
4 : silent; also : taciturn"
