We have a new pet in the Bernstein house - Finny the betta. I have been cycling the tank for two months and taking parameter readings on a daily basis. Taking care of a betta is far more complicated than a dog or hamster. When I was done acclimating him to the tank, he decided to take a giant leap onto the floor. Gave us quite a scare. But I was able to pick him up and place him back into the tank. Seems much happier being in a warm, filtered 5 gallon tank than a cup.

A vet I went to when Lic was sick used those infusers and my sinuses just clogged up and I would get nauseated. I'm super duper sensitive to smells and chemicals. I was forced to sit right next to them in the exam rooms, so I assumed it was them.
Ah, I see. That's a shame. Some people report the pheromone diffusers as a miracle treatment with cat anxiety. I'm just hoping it can get us back to the more awkward peace of a week ago.
Infuser? lol I meant diffuser. HA!

Anyway. I'm not sure if it ever worked on my cats. I used the wipes once on the travel crate and Kitty rubbed herself on it so...

I can't look at a fish without thinking of the Monty Python skit. Oh fishy, fishy, fish.

Welcome to the family, Finny.

So sorry to see this, Marky. The connection we have to pets is that rarity where both are so fortunate to have enjoyed each other's love and company. I'll raise a glass to Mac's memory tonight.

Sorry to hear that, my friend. “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” — Anatole France

Our animal companions are so much more than pets - they truly are family. They're the most loyal friends we could ever ask for. They experience life with us - and make the experience of living so much better. They make us laugh and sometimes they make us angry - but we love them unconditionally.
"If they believed in a place called Kokomo, then so did I." - Michael Edward Love

Oh no, Marky! I am so so so sorry. Mac was adorable and looked like a great companion. I know the pain you are feeling right now and it's just awful. Sending comforting thoughts your way. RIP, Mac.
