NOT MINE!!!!! they want to flush it if is a fish,{they check the tank everyday to see if one has died if so they fight over who gets to flush it!!} and burry it if its an animal. Then they want to get a new creature. We just recently had one of our Bearded dragons die. I was sad. When the kids found out they aked where he went. I told them he was sick and he died but now hes not sick anymore. They wernt even sad. My 3 yr old got all excited, clapping his hands saying "Now we can get two Turtles!!!" We have one and his thinking was now we have an empty tank we could get another one! We havent replaced him yet. Kids are funny sometimes. Do your kids cry if a pet dies???

Yeah, kids really are funny sometimes. They kinda think that it in order for them to have new things, they would want the old ones to be thrown away. :) Maybe your kids have not yet experienced being so attached with a pet. Because once they really do, it would be that hard for them to let go of it. Maybe at this point in time, what they're still thinking are the fun they could get upon having these pets with them. :)
