kpullen89, I agree. We told the Wal-Mart in my town about a betta that had literally an inch of water in its "tank" [I assume they think they can live safely in that!] and another that had absolutely filthy water- my dad thought it was dead, but I showed him that it was following my finger around a little.. poor baby. [I couldn't take any because we can't afford to buy everything a second time, considering the fact that I have it all with me in Richmond]
I don't know why it bothers me so much, but I swear I have to hear it everyday from my roommate and it drives me crazy. He's my baby [as I call all of my pets- at home my mother refers to me as "mama" to my cat] and I'm only trying to take care of him, no matter if he has cost me about $100 by now! [sadly]
my boyfriend used to be like that....he used to get made everytime i came home i came with a new fish....and he used to make fun of me for being on here so much....he calls it "fishspace" lol...but since he got his tank he is the one coming home with fish all the time and when something isnt right with one of his fish or tanks he asks me to get on here and post for some help lol
I know! I get that alot with dogs, birds, lizards, cats, ferrits, rabits, and all other homeless animals I work with too. People just don't think of them as live beings. That is the reason people can eat meat. They like to think that the food they are eating didn't feel pain or suffering. Thet it was just there.
Well I eat meat and I feel for animals. I just like to eat meat. It's good. God put animals on Earth for people to eat, or he wouldn't had made us omnivores. I still feel for animals... I'm not a beast.
And yes, I get annoyed when people say "it's just a fish" Because my fish are my babies. I cried when mine died, but it wasn't more than 10 minutes.
I have to agree with nochoramet. I eat meat- although I wouldn't eat things that people consider pets. [yes, I know people consider chickens, pigs and cows as pets, but not the normal household pet] I don't have anything against vegans or vegetarians, I just can't be one.
