sad news, friends. our much adored tuxedo mask crossed the rainbow bridge today. he’d been sick for awhile now, so it didn’t come as a surprise, and i’m glad he’s no longer suffering at least.
i’m incredibly sad to have lost him; he may have been “just” a fish but he was my friend above all. i got him at a time when i was struggling with a lot of things and he was an immense comfort to me when i just needed to sit back and relax for a while. i’ll always be grateful for that.
i don’t think i’ll get another fish anytime soon. he was special; i can’t imagine ever finding another fish i could bond with the way i did him.
rest in peace, little buddy. you will be very missed.
