A Wheelchair for a Goldfish

Post by alexmtl on Tue Mar 28, 2017 1:07 pm

Circulating on Twitter and Youtube, a goldfish with a wheelchair.

Apparently the first prototype has been upgraded to a better wheelchair.

I have seen this and all I have to say is...

"Time to go"

Sad I know, but it reaches a point where quality of life comes to mind and I think this poor fish has reached that point.
