It was a sad afternoon in our house today. Kayla came home from school today to find her fish, Thomas, at the bottom of his tank. We knew this was coming. He had some sort of growth in the front part of his body, and he was not moving around very much. Kayla cried and cried. She flushed him down the toilet and cried some more. Then her friend Patrick rang the doorbell and she never mentioned the fish again. She did not even tell Andy about it tonight. How quickly she recovered from the loss of her first pet!
