Nico: 2008 - 2014
Nico was the love of my life. He taught me about love and he continued to give me hope when I wanted to quit during the hardest times. Despite being in pain, Nico continued to pull through during his last day of life -- just for me. Because I was too scared to let him go. He advocated me about HCM and now I am on a mission to find a cure and to alert others about this disease so his life did not end in vain.
Renato: 2014 - 2014
Renato was my 'second' chance with Nico after Nico died. They were so much alike it was almost scary. Sadly, Renato was never meant to be. Renato taught me that life is not to be wasted by doing things you do not want to live for.
Tadpole: 1990 - 2005
Tadpole was the one that started me as a Ragdoll owner. He was even my very first cat, he taught me how to readily make friends and enjoy things while they are in the moment.
Midnight: 2015 - 2015
Metallica: 2015 - 2015
Greeve: 2015 - 2015
Greeve was purchased with Midnight, I had him for almost a week before he died of ick. He taught me about being careful with life. Greeve was a twin tail halfmoon male betta.
Note: Please do not buy betta fish from petsmart! I bought 3 bettas from 2 locations and they all died of ick!
What has your animals taught you?
