It's neither fair, nor is it unfair. I believe that it's a simple fact of life, and it teaches a rather apt lesson. If you don't take care of something that relies on your help, it'll die.
Plus, if they didn't die, the game'd get boring so friggin' fast, it'd make your head spin. If you could just let it sit there, I hardly think I'd ever pick it up to feed it. Mind you, mine practically lives on pause like it's a life-support system.
Whatever. It dies, and there's nothing you can do about it, whether you think it should or not.
