I am very fortunate that my parents are respectful of how much I value animal life, even if they don't understand it. When my rabbit got sick, at first my parents weren't going to do anything and asked me why I cared so much, but when they saw how upset I was and how much I really cared about my bunny, they let me take her to the vet and paid for her vet bills!

My Dad even took me to buy frozen food for my betta, and pays extra for my rabbit's special diet. I am very grateful to them for at least respecting how I feel, even if they don't get it themselves.

I'm really lucky that my Dad is somewhat interested in my bettas. Mind you, most everyone else thinks I'm totally nutty. Family, friends, ramdom strangers, and pet store employees think I'm crazy.

If you love fish, people think you're nuts. lol When I took Abnormal Psychology in college, I don't remember anything in my textbook saying that people who love fish or pets in general, are abnormal or crazy. lol

I have come to value my betta's life as any other human being.

Many of my friends think I am crazy but they really matter to me :)
