Our friends Deb and John left their fish, Moose, with us for the week while they went on a cruise. He's a blue beta fish. And he's been swimming happily in his bowl, on our kitchen counter, since Saturday.
Today, our oldest cat, Einstein, discovered he was there.
I know you may be thinking that this cannot end well. Fish and cat do not make for good playmates. Except that Einstein is not the brightest of cats. He's not after the fish, but the water. He's been caught twice this morning, drinking from the top of Moose's bowl. Just drinking. He will do this to a cup of water if you leave it laying around too, so I am not really surprised.
I wonder if he even knows that Moose is in there.
