I mean is it me, look at how cool some of this stuff is. You can have a dog, and well, it's a dog. OK everybody has a dog. (I don't) or you can have a cat although I don't know why anyone would have a cat. (I don't have one and never will) My Daughter has one for about a year and I don't think I ever saw the thing. I have no idea what color it is, how many legs it has, nothing, it's a cat. It's name is probably, cat. Maybe Felix, I have no idea.

Some fish facts:
The best way to keep an animal like a fish healthy is to know how it makes it's living.
We are after all very distant relatives of fish (if you believe Darwin) so we should have some sort of understanding of the way they feel.
We donít see the way fish see, we donít feel the way fish feel, and we also donít eat the way fish eat. Fish donít have tongues and they donít "really" chew. (Try chewing without using your tongue) They bite a piece of food, then
