Cali is shedding her winter undercoat so I had to pull some tats out of her fur. Not happy about it.

My cat with his favourite mouse, the first thing we bought him when we got him home after plucking him half-dead off the hillside. He loves that mouse.

That is a very pretty cat. :wub:



We really lucked out! Considering we just found him abandoned or lost, we couldn't have got a sweeter, more affectionate, more attractive and fluffy cat if we'd tried.

About two weeks ago I decided to buy a Betta to go in my community tank. Knowing the males have a penchant for wanton violence, I bought a nice, short finned little female one. Gorgeous pink and silver colour. I named her Betty.

Sunday night, one of my guppies was looking a bit peaky, constantly swimming at the surface. By Monday he was a goner, lying on the bottom with a fin missing. I put it down to illness/age and opportunistic bottom feeders.

Second guppy starts looking the same way that night. Tuesday morning, Betty's playing with it like a cat with a mouse, is revealed to be the murder criminal. Betty is moved to a new tank.

Cut to today. Third guppy goes belly up for reasons unclear, Betty follows shortly after.

RIP Custard, Mish-Mash, Sasuke and Betty.

Quarantine your fish, folks. :simper:

That's why I stopped keeping fish as a kid, had a tank of around 8 fish and after introducing a new one (a weather loach named slithering sid) all the others died over the next few weeks.

The loach (which I passed on to my sister) lived a further 15 years, surviving several suicidal leaps out of the tank, a couple of which involved the cat attempting to eat it.

Goldfish tend to eat anything they can fit in their mouth, so to be fair, he probably was :lol:
