Kinda happy and kinda sad...
Back in 2006, I took in 5 goldfish from my co-worker, who raises koi; he keeps them in an outdoors pond each year during warm weather, but takes them inside before it gets cold (here in upstate New York). Well, back in 2006, he found that his koi had been joined by about 30 little goldfish; he gave most of them to someone else, but I took in 5 (the most I thought I could take care of if I couldn't find someone to adopt them, which is what I wanted to do).
The years went by, they moved into progressively larger tanks, one died, and I found a home for 2 of them. At the end of this past December, I found a home for the last 2 with a co-worker. It will be nice not having any sentient beings depending on me, but I'll miss them (along with the other animal companions I took in from shelters or friends since the beginning of 1993: 5 cats, 1 hamster, 3 rabbits, 5 gerbils, 4 rosy red minnows).
Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.
