Default poor Taylor's Betta Fish

We went strawberry picking Sat. (wasn't a great crop this year with all the rain we had) and Taylor was apparantly in the middle of cleaning and adding fresh water to Breeze's (ironic huh ) tank. Well, she put Breeze into a cereal sized bowl with the water of course. I didn't notice she wasn't done and was busy gathering up everything and both Tony and I, were shouting OK lets go and she must have just dropped what she was doing figuring on finishing when we got back.

Well, we came back and Tony was washing up the fresh vegetables and so forth when Taylor looks at the cereal bowl and says "Where's Breeze" The water was still in the bowl so I was looking on the floor to see if he flopped out or whatnot. Nope no fish in sight. The only conclusion we could come up with is FAGAN! darn cat. Taylor was crying and I told her that her fish had a long life (she had the fish for about 6 months) and she says to me, "Yeah but I wouldn't have wanted to be eaten by a cat!" She was upset with Fagan all of Sat. night and into Sunday and I tried to explain to her about their natural instincts. They've made up, but she says she's still mad.

It made a good opportunity to explain AGAIN why we can't have any gerbils, hampsters, rabbits, ferrets and now fish. lol

LOL, aww, I feel bad for the little fish. I'm glad she forgave the kitty, tho. A phrase I love is "Forgive, but not forget"

that's a sad story. Hopefully she will not be holding any bad feelings for the cat. Ferrets can hold their own with cats though (I know our two do, our cats are actually afraid of the ferrets).

Oh, I feel so bad for Taylor and Breeze. I know Taylor will eventually get over it, but I'd be upset too.

Taylor and Fagan have made up. He usually chooses Taylor's bed to camp out on and he was there Sunday night and both of them content as ever

She really was irresponsible in the first place. She shouldn't have left the fish like that with Fagan around. I mean, it only takes five minutes to change his water and we would have waited. He never did that before, but I think with the fish being in the bowl he figured we left him a treat, lol I know how that sounds and I am sorry for the fish but, hey, that's the 'circle of life'

Anyway, all is fine and they are buddies again.
