Fishy, I *don't* think so but I know so little about electric catfish that I suppose it's possible, if he came into contact with some of the electric equipment in his tank (filter, heater).
Bekah, no, I had to return the baby because I couldn't afford to outfit his tank so he would be comfortable. My other LFS had a pair of them (in a kritter keeper sunk in a tank with bichir on the outside) but I don't think I'll get another electric cat again, at least not for a long while.
My dad has been wanting me to keep angelfish ever since I got a fish that wasn't a betta so (if) I ever move, I will probably outfit the 55gal for an angelfish community for him.
WHY is it that everything I want to do I can't? Have to sleep sitting up in a chair since the suture site is still bleeding (I'm like a hamster with cotton in my cheek). I want hot tea. Can't drink hot liquids, only cold. I want to suck on a sore throat lozenge. Can't suck on anything, could cause bleeding. I want ramen or miso. Only cool, soft foods like smoothies. I don't like smoothies. >.< I went to drink out of my Camelbak water bottle and my folks were all, "No, don't suck!" Yeah, but this sucks!
Okay, so the weird part about this? Two teeth were taken out. The lower left one is still bleeding and hurts if I aggravate it because it was impacted. The other one? I wouldn't even know anything was removed. Nooo, what really sucks is my throat is sooooo sore. >.< You'd think I had a tonsillectomy instead.
Oops, sorry for the giant whine-fest.
EDIT: Fishy, I sent you an FB request but don't worry if you don't want to accept. I won't be offended. I'll just come and steal your angelfish. ;)
Silverfang, I honestly . . . don't know. If they did have me tubed, I was already out.
LBF, no, thank goodness being knocked out was perfectly painless and right about now, I wouldn't mind being knocked out again. A person could get used to that "snap, falls asleep instantly" thing. I'm not sleeepy!
Fishy, SUPER PUG!!!!!!
Thanks, Yuuie. Hope tomorrow is a slightly less insane day for you.
This is a bit grim but in some ways, it was comforting to experience it though. Realizing just how instantly you are knocked out made me feel better about the animals who are euthanized. If nothing else, it truly is a painless, instant way to go for an animal who is suffering. I thought of my cat Kelsey, who is the first pet that I stayed with during the process and I feel better about my decision to end her pain and discomfort. She wasn't going to get better and making her live that way for a month would have been cruel and selfish of me. This way, she went swiftly and peacefully with someone who loved her holding her.
I avoided blood tests for decades. Finally, my doctor sort of threatened to stop filling my prescription for my anti-depressant if I didn't go get my liver checked to make sure the med wasn't harming it. I had to take a sedative first. Now I'm okay with getting my blood drawn because the clinic is very good at it but I still cringe about tetanus shots and the like that hurt or make you sick.
