Jamnita, sorry that your friend has turned out to be less than compassionate. Even though this sounds odd, perhaps your friend wishes she was your hero instead of Ernest, who in her mind is "just" a fish. Has your friend cared for any pets herself? If not, then maybe gently explain to her that caring for and nurturing any animal is rewarding, emotionally fulfilling and eases stress. Animals and their caregivers form strong bonds and yes, this includes fish. Be patient with her and realize that she simply may not be able to comprehend the tenderness you feel for sweet Ernest. Debating with her will only create tension. Respect her limitations and keep on loving your fishie just the way you have been!
