Thursday Thirteen - Fishie

Hi Kitties! This Thursday's Thirteen all belongs to me, Ivy! I am going to tell you more about fishie.

Thirteen Things About Fishie
  1. Mommy got him from Uncle Sean's Swim Team Awards Banquet. He was a centerpiece in a pretty glass bowl. Mommy felt bad for him, even before it turned out he was a door prize and no one else at the table wanted him!

  2. Fishie was with us for less than 24 hours before he swam over the Rainbow Bridge. Mommy explained to us that he was probably stressed out from his role as centerpiece, but that he had a good short life while he was with us.

  3. Mommy gave him a respectful "burial at sea." I don't see how she managed that, since we don't live anywhere near the ocean.

  4. Almost Dad was going to name him something cool and Japanese, but Fishie swam over the bridge before he could think of anything that fit.

  5. Fishie was a pretty bright orange with black spots. You could say he was a tortie!

  6. All of us kitties wanted to meet him. Badly.

  7. Tybalt and Holly still cry and scratch at the bathroom door to see him, even though mommy explained to them that Fishie is no longer with us. I don't seem to care as much, which surprises everyone.

  8. Mommy told Tybalt that if he is very good, she might get him another fishie.

  9. Fishie had to live in the bathroom locked away from us because we were figuring out how to get to him to "play" with him.

  10. Tybalt thought Fishie was his birthday present.

  11. Fishie would have been the first pet that Almost Dad and Mommy adopted together. (That's why he was going to be the one to name him.)

  12. Fishie was a great swimmer. He was a lot of fun for us kitties to watch.

  13. Fishie seemed like he would have been a great friend. I hope we do get another fishie!

Poor little fishie. We would have liked to play with him too. He looks a little bit like an orange lizard. And lizards are super fun!

RIP Fishie. Too bad the fishie wasn't with you longer. They can be good friends.

We had fishies. They died. They were with us for lots of years though. They lived with us for so long that we cats stopped trying to "play" with them, and the fishes got to be in the living room.

The Furry Kids said...

Oh, poor fishie. I hope you get another fishie. But if your mom is anything like ours, you probably won't be able to play with him. I don't know why.

I think he would have been better off respectfully buried in someone's tummy but....

Little fishies like that don't usually seem to live too long.

Daisy said...

I am sorry Fishie had to go to the Rainbow Trout Bridge. I hope you get another one! I think I might like a fishie, too. It looks like more fun than a Jumping Bean.

Poor Fishie. We are sorry that you did not get to eat, er, uh, play with him.
