Can You Put a Price On a Life?

Normally whee would write the blog post but today Mummy wants to talk to you. Take it away hooman!

A story hit the press over here in the UK a few days ago which has caused mixed reactions. From disbelief, to some enthusiastic cheering.

Where would you stand? Is it worth £300 to save a goldfish’s life? (That’s $456.69 for our oversea friends!)

People are struggling to understand how anyone could become that attached to an animal.

I may not understand the relationship he shares with his goldfish, but I absolutely applaud and defend his right save it. Not much is known about this man but whatever his reasons he chose to protect the life of his little finned friend.

I have been criticised by someone for the amount I’ve spent on Noah after his teeth incident. I’m not going to go in specifics but it wasn’t even close to £300. However, even if it had cost that, I would have paid it.

When you take on a pet you are making a promise; to always protect and care for them.

I have a “piggy bank” (pun intended!) of money to spend for vet trips and a plan in place should I not be able to afford something. I think this is something all pet owners should have.

Do you have a “piggybank”? What are your thoughts on this news story?

Have a great day efurryone!
