Sadly, Coleman had to say goodbye to another pet. His dwarf hamster, Spark, has gone to a better place. We’re not sure what happened, but one night he was squeaking away in his hamster wheel and the next morning he was laying still.
Coleman misses him and talks about him every once in a while. But his grief has not kept him from jumping right back on the internet to research his next pet. I guess this is healthy?
His research led us straight to Petsmart to purchase one beta fish, two large goldfish, and three small goldfish. The beta was for Coleman, all the other ones were for the three other kids who thought having fish in their rooms would be super cool.
Within three days we were down to just one beta fish. Which causes me to think we are destined to not be a pet family. It seems they all suffer the same fate as plants around here. Try as I may, I can’t keep a plant alive more than a few months.
So, for your own good, don’t plan on dropping by any stray cats or dogs at our house.
