Look, I love my pets as much as the next guy, but there’s gotta be a limit and I think I found it.
A woman in Australia was concerned that her pet goldfish seemed to be choking on something.
Off to the vet she went, and sure enough Conquer, a goldfish — I can’t emphasize this enough — had swallowed one of those pebbles you put at the bottom of a bowl. A goldfish bowl.
Long story short, emergency fish surgery and one night in the animal hospital later, Conquer was fine.
The final bill? $375 dollars.
For a goldfish.
