WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A kid from Warner Robins, Georgia, literally killed his pet fish with kindness when he took it out of the tank to pet it.

Images shared by Tori Hamlin on Feb. 24 show her son Everett cuddled up in bed with his goldfish. According to the post, she and her husband found Everett holding the fish after he fell asleep.

"Everett has had this fish almost his whole life!!! Now he's upset bc he killed it and said he just wanted to pet it. Lord help me," Hamlin wrote alongside the image.
