Yesterday, I came home from ballet as usual and then I went to feed my beta Katherine (named after the girl in D.C.cupcakes:) but i went over and she was "belly up"!! I was sad all afternoon and was crying a lot:( I know what your thinking "it's just a fish") but Katherine was magnificent and on the weekends when I fed her I would put the food and she would jump put of the tank!!! It was so fun and I will remember the times when I was cleaning the tank she would jump on to the counter (that "little" trouble maker:) Katherine lived for 268 days which in case you didn't know that's along time for fish! I still have my goldfish "mickey mouse" and I named him that from an inside joke! but my goldfish has been living since June, 13 2010 (that is incredible)! But, I will have a special place for Katherine in my heart! tell me in a comment if you have ever lost a "friend".
