Or maybe *you* are good with animals.... but your *parents* aren't.

So maybe *you* deserve a betta.... but your *parents* don't.

they barely believe every word about bettas I say! I say "this betta is sick" and my parents say "no, it's not". what do they know about betta fish care anyway? ...

they will care more about a child than a fish or any type of animal, really. and they don't allow me to donate money or anything to animals. Don't animals need a chance too?

You do deserve this betta. If YOU were bad with fish he would have been dead before Justin did that. If you were bad with fish, he wouldn't have lasted this long after Justin did that. You've got brains and you use them (plus you're young and have common sense) I will still say don't get a dog just yet. If he gets a broken leg, or just needs his shots... What if your parents say no?

oh.

well surprisingly, my parents will actually help me care for a dog, just not my fish... and that also shocked me a little... but my parents are still thinking about it... <hmm)

Many people see fish as nothing more than disposable things. I feel people have forgotten to see the beauty in the little things - and the little animals!! I might be old fashioned with that, but I have gotten many people to realize fish aren't just to be thrown away. It's too bad your parents won't see it through your eyes!

Unhappy "Can't they see? Fish are BEAUTIFUL!"

Why can't people care about these little squirts? If King Dedede ever dies, I'm not too sure I can bury him properly because of my parents thinking fish are junk. When I first got King Dedede, my family put him in a vase... I researched about betta fish and then stumbled onto this site. they barely helped me for my betta, I told my parents that my betta needs a heater. but did they listen? nooooo, they ignored me!

If he does die, don't blame yourself. You have done amazingly good. I would hold off getting another fish (I know how hard it is not to have fish) until you are a bit older and your parents *hopefully* start listening.

My parents actually bought King Dedede for themselves, then, one day, I was suddenly forced to take care of King Dedede.

I know, right! and they don't let me get meds for my betta when he gets sick. thankfully, King Dedede has only been sick with fin rot once. No other diseases!!

(ps. I'm listening to gangnam style :D)
