Based on a true story! And extremely relevant to the previous entry! Observe!

Pet Store Pangs

Pet stores are the most depressing places on the face of the earth. Countless animals waiting to be adopted, cared for by apathetic teenagers slogging through their summer jobs.

I knew I could only get one. Male betta fish will shred one another if they’re kept in the same tank. They aren’t called “Siamese Fighting Fish” for nothing.

I found myself sorting through dirty, claustrophobic, plastic cups, and feeling guilty about looking for the most colorful, most energetic fish. I knew they would probably survive. I want to take them all. I can’t bear to look at these tiny prisons.

We did what we could for two of them. *sad face*
