I remember when I first got you, you were so beautiful, you had such beautiful fins and I though you were a boy at first :).. You loved live worms and flaring at everything you saw. I don't know how you got sick, I wish I could have prevented it. I tried and you tried but the dropsy was there and I couldn't make you better.. So, I had to do what was right. I hope you don't hate me for it and I hope you didn't feel any pain. I'm happy you had a good happy life, I'll always miss you and I hope you'll wait with all the others that I lost at the rainbow bridge. I love you sweet girl, goodbye.
I'm so sorry, Fighter. You really did try everything you could, I've never seen anyone try so hard to save a betta. I know Cleo loved you and knew how much you loved her. She doesn't hate you for what you had to do because you were the one who brought her peace finally and you were the last thing she saw, a friendly and familiar and much-loved face. *hugs*
Thank you, it was very hard choice but I realised that the point had come where I just couldn't do anything. By the end of it she was sitting at the bottom and the only way I could tell she was alive was the movement of her gills, I just couldn't watch her anymore. I feel like I did the right thing but I also feel so guilty! I hope I will never have to do that again..
*hugs* I know. But you did the right thing. Cleo wouldn't want you to feel guilty, she would want you to remember her frisking along and eating her live worms. And you won't have to do that again. All of your fish will remain healthy and happy because you take good care of them.
Its not just fish, we thought Cleo was a boy, Tranny was a girl, Sterling keeps barring up like a girl, one of my female mice was thought to be a boy and the turtle of course.. Hi Handsome is a girl :D
