It is amazing what people do, my old neighbors used to get a fish keep it for a few weeks...get tired of it and bring it to me. They finally stopped keeping fish (thankfully) now they have chickens, I am not sure who they plan to dump those off on."Have no fear of perfection- you'll never reach it."

Good for you for taking the jewel and for instilling the 14 year old with enough sense of responsibility to know he could not care for it. You know he didn't learn it from his parents ... you are not only saving fish - you are saving kids.30 gal FW:corys, ABNP, blue angel, nerites & mystery snails

I'vev currently taken 2 cats, 2 chickens, and 1 dog from them. Keep in mind that's all they 've actually succeeded in getting me to take. They've tried more.
Now they've gone and bought my 2 year old nephew a pot bellied pig. Upon seeing this my husband said, "Who are you getting to take that when you're tired of it? It isn't going to be us!"
Although if it were life or death I would...
People taking advantage of my caring heart gets on my nerves so horribly. I don't have any other choice than to do what my heart tells me.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

Unfortunately the Jewel wound up being euthanized, it was just so f'ed up from the neglect. Poor thing could never swim correctly and it was badly stunted...
I have taken more fish than I know from my neighbors...and a hamster. I draw the line at anything else, I also wouldn't be surprised if my barn cat population wasn't largely due to them either. They came to me last year and wanted to rent a stall space in my barn because they wanted to buy their kids a pony...fortunately my dog is rather unfriendly so that put a stop to that. Last time I drove by their house the chickens are gone too...its hard to say what they have now.
It is hard to deal with people like this and I commend anyone who does...I do think that it should require a license to own a pet or procreate for the matter."Have no fear of perfection- you'll never reach it."
