And now...

for the rest of the story...

So Buttercup has completely stolen our hearts and we're hell bent on keeping her alive.


Mickey, on the other hand, has different plans for her. Please picture this 19 pound beast squished in the aquarium, and I do mean the ENTIRE beast, with our dear Buttercup partially dangling out of his mouth. It was horrifying. Although not as horrifying as the sound of him spitting her out. And yes, it made an audible sound.

Now on top of the bum wing she also has a bum leg which makes her a little lopsided. But she's still alive. And still eating. And pooping. So we're still loving her and hoping she has a nice normal life span. Which appears to be 9 months. And yes, we've made sure to remove her from Mickey's reach to help her achieve that life span.
