If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Well it has been a totally crappy start to the year!

As of today Ozzy has gone completely blind. The biggest problem is that he cannot see to eat. I have tried tickling his nose with food but he freaks out then swims away and bumps into objects. Just to get his attention I had to tickle him with my finger.

I am so sad, he is such a young and beautiful blue fishy. Unless I figure out a way to hand feed him or through some miracle he gets some vision back, I'm afraid he will die of starvation in a week :(

Was going by the pet shop today. Mum wanted to know how much the poodles were. She's promised me a poodle when I build my new house cause of my allergies. She plans to buy from a breeder, but was interested in the price ($1000, it you're wondering).

As we stood at the counter a girl offered us two just-born kittens. Someone had dumped them at someone's doorstep and being a Sunday they couldn't find a vet open. RSPCA does not take in day-old baby kittens for whatever reason. So they ended up at the pet shop in an ice cream container.

I can't take them because little kittens are in danger with a male cat (and Mr. Jiji is one grumpy old tom). One girl at the shop phoned another pet shop to ask if they have any kitten milk (apparently you can get some if a cat rejects her kittens) then decided to drive over there to see for herself. I called my vet but he was closed too. I really hope the pet shop girl found some kitten milk (she could try supermarket milk for older kittens, better something than nothing). She plans to take them home then hand them in to an animal hospital tomorrow morning if they survive, but she was hoping someone might have a new mum cat or some other solution. She was even trying people who give kittens in to sell.

To be honest, without proper milk those kittens don't stand a chance. Why did those horrible people rip the little kittens from their mum just after they were born? How hard is it to put them in a box with newspaper and their MUM for 8 weeks then take them to the RSPCA (or a pet shop)? I hope those people get a slap of karma very soon. Whoever they are, they are totally DESPICABLE!!!
