no fish.

I know it is late but I am in my fish room and a thought surfaced in my weird brain.What was life like with no fish in your home?What about no pets at all?Do you remember?Imagine no tanks,no birds, no dogs,no nothing!How do folks get by without them?I don't know.In the serenity of this room,the sounds of water,the ocasional splash of a tail fin,the soft light,....We are so fortunate.I can't imagine.

I was very lonely without my dog, and stressed without my fish.

Well some people can't miss what they never had. So I suppose they wouldn't know at all?

Been there before... Had a home full of pets then boom a ugly divorce changed lifestyle immediately. What I missed the most, my umbrella cockatoo.

Now remarried to another pet lover who understands. Currently have 3 tanks, 2 in use, 1 not.

No pets?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Always had pets of one sort or another my entire life. Only time with no pets was a 6 week work stint in London. I had fun, great experience, but i missed my pets just as much as i missed my wife! (Good thing she has no interest in this board, heheheheheheeee).

No pets would be horrible!!!!

I went a month or two in a college apartment without a cat then I broke down and paid the $300 deposit. It helped that a big rat came waddling down my hall one day--but I really just used that as an excuse so I wouldn't feel bad about the money. :P

What a dismal existence without pets! When I moved to an apartment by myself I couldn't stand talking to myself - so I went out and adopted a rabbit, then another, then another, and then another. I like them because they actually respond to my voice (they haven't talked to me yet, but they know some commands). Fish, on the other hand, I've found aren't very talkative either. I enjoy my children, err "pets", immensely and couldn't imagine living without them!

Hmmmm.... My animals talk to me all the time, but the only thing they ever say is "can I have something to eat" or "whatcha eatin? can I have a bite?" They never care if the Cardinals won or not.

Mine too-- Cats, " Clean the litter box" "Gimme some catnip" (druggie cats), "wake up it's 3am, time to play".

Fish, " FEED ME" , "Clean the tank, you lazy slob" "hey you missed a spot on the glass over here".
