Oh, no, it doesn't offend me at all!
I'm not a squeamish person, but I can't cut into a fish I knew & loved- sort of like Drs not being able to treat their family.
I was actually thinking about sending her to a lab. We have great schools around here, and Tufts' Veteranary school is a short distance away. Since tomorrow's Sunday, I won't have time to keep her "fresh"- I wonder if freezing her will destroy any evidence?
I can start by calling my cat's vet. They must send tumors & whatever to labs.
I bought Gilly from Petco (a "baby betta"), Flake came from an American breeder (the same place my avatar fish came from) and Angel was a pathetic Petsmart rescue I've had since last August. I raised Gilly & Angel together as juveniles; as they grew & started nipping, I got the idea to adopt more & have a larger sorority.
