The My Left Hook family regrets to announce the death of Bluey the Betta Fish,
who may have suffocated to death in his own fecespassed away sometime over the past week or so this morning after a hellaciously dismal existence marked by dirty water, food shortages, the threat of foreign objects and occasional evaporation. long peaceful life.
Bluey’s birth occurred
who knows when at a fish farm two years ago at the local PetCo and was purchased for $1.35 adopted by the Diva, the Pterodactyl and the Tyrant. The children adored his deep blue coloring and long flowing fins, which eventually turned pallid because he lived too close to a window faded into a lovely light azure.
Bluey and his
cage colorful glass bowl moved often, sometimes residing in the kitchen where someone would remember to feed him so everyone could admire him, other times high on the bookshelf where the children would be unable to pet him so he could gaze out at his home, and more recently in the Pterodactyl’s room because when he’s throwing a really severe tantrum, he gets pretty much whatever he wants the boy loved him so much.
The children and their parents
often forgot to feed Bluey carefully watched Bluey’s diet, making sure he kept in swimming shape, and occasionally let his water get a sickly gray allowed him to build immunities against common bacteria.
In his latter years, Bluey was joined by Rainbowy, a fellow Betta who resided in another bowl near him
so they wouldn’t eat each other so they could gaze lovingly at each other. Rainbowy survives Bluey, and will receive extra food today so she doesn’t die, too to help her fill the emotional void left by her best friend’s death.
The Pterodactyl, in particular,
said he’ll only feel better if he can go to Target this afternoon and buy a toy feels heartsick at the loss.
The children’s father expressed sorrow at the sudden news, especially since
the mother blamed him for changing the water without properly conditioning it he had been the last to tend to the pet. He added, though, that perhaps the incident will help teach the family how to handle death. The children’s mother said it teaches everybody that if you live in shit, you die in shit agreed.
So long, Bluey. We really did
mean well love you, little guy.
