The silence of the goldfish

When I first moved in, I went out and bought two goldfish, to make up for those re-homed due to the move. For a long time they thrived, and then one day I found one of them moribund. I was most upset, but waited to check the remaining fish was not affected by whatever had caused the death, and went out and bought goldfish c – a most beautiful and lively fish.

Imagine my consternation and sorrow when I found fish b was itself dying in the pond weed. Then yesterday I found poor fish c dying – at the paws of the culprit.

Let us just say that my sympathy for that favourite cat drowned in a bowl of goldfish has been severely diminished.

    It is not so much the eating as the lingering over execution which distresses me – in fact and despite her state of constant famine (but now she has something approaching a neck again) she didn’t eat any of the 0oor fish … just fished them.

    She is probably trying to feed the 5000 and has just not got round to the barley loaves yet.
