...but I guess i will still post -- out of habbit perhaps, coupled with a handfull of boredome.
I thought id give you all a quick update. My fish are both dead. Kaput. Off to fishy heaven. The first one -- mortimer -- died about a month ago, at the hands (or should i say paws) of Admiral tibbits. I woke up in the morning, went to the kitchen, and saw mortimers tank, empty, and gravel all over the floor. Though i looked, I didnt find poor mortimer scaley body anywhere in the kitchen, and i assumed that tibbits ate him. I know it was tibbits cause Minouche is too fat to jump up onto the counters. Later that day, i found Mortimer on the carpet, when i stepped on him. Yay, that was fun. Our second fish, Demitrius, died just this last week, at the hands of our friend V (that is his nickname, and thank god, cause i cant spell his real name). V was our house sitter for the first few days me and christopher were away. He called a couple of days after we left. The following is an excerpt from that conversation.
V: I think your fish is dead.
Chris: why do you say that?
V: its just sitting on the bottom of the tank
Chris: It does that alot, its just a betta, they dont really do very much.
V: oh ok then.
The next day i got a call from my friend jen who was looking after the house and kittens for the last few days we were away. The following is an excerpt from that converstation.
Jen: Your fish is dead. I flushed it.
So aparently V was right, the fish wasnt just resting at the bottom of the tank. It was indeed, very dead. Well, you never can expect too much from house/pet sitters i suppose. At least he didnt kill one of the kittens.
