Marty the Betta
Sorry to hear Marty passed away. But that's nice you got one last day with him.
Yea, Marty was a super special little guy! I think he knew how much he was loved and wanted to return that to his Betta mommy.
Marty's story about an animal bonding with a human (and likewise) is one of the most incredible, stunning and touching ones I've ever seen. I just now logged in after a couple days away and was rather shocked by the loss after his miraculous recovery. After just a couple of seconds, the tears of sorrow strangely turned to joy at the extraordinary gift Marty gave you and all of us on his last day of life. I think a little tiny fish has given all who know about him a huge and positive lesson about life and death. No matter one's religious beliefs, a story like this could make some people, including me, wonder whether it was mere luck, fate or God's will that Marty and you found each other. Whatever it was, I personally think Marty carried out a very big mission. You served as a conduit of it by taking such wonderful care of him so you could convey his full story.
Rose, thank you for sharing this story of life, death and love.
oh rose, i'm soooo sorry to hear about your loss
lots of hugs and love to you and little marty.
I too HATE seeing the little fishies suffer and I often make rick take them out when they're suffering too much.
but what a gift he gave you, to have one last good day with Mom, telling you he loved you.
:console:hang in there mom, love and hugs to you always
marty is swimming in heaven telling all the other fishes about his great mom.
Man I am getting really tired of hearing about our beloved betta leaving us.
Big hugs Rose. Sorry about Marty... RIP handsome.
Unfortunately something is out there taking our bettas. :'(
