I wasn't exactly looking forward to my mom being judged...
I was at one point considering volunteering at a shelter, I forgot why I dropped it. One problem would be getting there and coming home; not sure if anyone would be willing to drive me.
I guess for now I'll go with small things. If I take the proper care I know everything will be just fine. I can't wait a bunch of years to get my next pet; people seems drawn away from me and I can't handle being alone at this stage of my life... even something that I can just hold for a minute or two would be perfect.
For the fish, I'm planning on creating a balanced ecosystem as opposed to getting a lot of expensive equipment. This will include plants, those micro organisms, shrimp, apple snails and fish. Maybe some other stuff. But these organisms are supposed to help each other. I will, of course, check the water to see if it is safe for them and I will change this plan if it goes wrong.
Happy holidays everyone
