    So Mr. Fish has not eaten since jan 11, two weeks ago today. I am so sad and realize he is not getting better. I made his home as comfortable as I could for him to pass in, because I wanted him to go on his own. He still is with us and I feel cruel just letting him starve to death. I don't know...
