This is such a cliche problem it is almost funny, but I still would like to take a poll on what you would do if you were in my place. First of all, I am housesitting for a family from Sunday-Friday, and they have 2 dogs and a gold fish. The seven year old managed to keep this fish alive for two months. I mean seriously, how often does that happen? My fish never lived more than a week when I was her age. Now, when I got here on Sunday after the family left, I thought the poor fish was sleeping. Is that possible? Do fish sleep? By yesterday, however, it was definitely dead. Very, very, very dead. Today, even more dead. What should I do? I don't want to tell the seven year old that after she kept her fish alive for two months I came in and it died the same day I got here. I went to the pet store today to find a replacement, but none of those millions of fishies looked like the one that died on me. What would you do if you were me and you were houesitting and the seven year old's fish died on you? Help!
