Wow no pets ever? When I was a kid we had a dog and a cat, the doc was rescued, the cat was from a neighbor's litter. When we moved to a rural area after I'd been riding horses for years Dad bought me one! He was like "Miranda, you take care of it, or I'll give him to someone who will." I woke up at 7 every single morning for about 8 years to take care of my first and second horses. Fed them religiously unless I was ill, rode most afternoons. It really taught me responsibility! Of course, horses are pricey. I'm pretty sure the cost was awful on my father. It wasn't something I paid attention to at the time. But pets are detrimental to responsibility! I'm glad you got the fish, Sena!
