Car-E goes fishing

Blue Fish, my beta, has caught the eye of Car-E.

Good thing that the fish knows to go to the bottom of the bowl whenever the kitten comes to play.

It’s also a good thing that when Car-E puts his paw in the water he reacts, quickly pulling back.

I’m pretty sure Blue Fish is safe, but I will keep an eye on Car-E when he gets close.

Going fishing

Car-E the kitten is interested in the fish in the fish tank.

He came close when I had the hood back to feed them today so I let him have a good look.

I thought he might take a dive in. You know the old phrase. Curiosity killed the cat.

Well, Car-E was curious, but he only touched the water. It still was interesting watching him investigate the tank.

Watch out fish!

If Car-E had his way he’d be my the fish tank, swimming with my three fish. I can imagine that happening. A lot of splashing would have ensued with a very wet cat emerging.

(The fish are twenty-nine cent feeder fish. I don’t buy expensive fish anymore because they usually die.)

Five months ago, I started out with six feeder fish. I’m down to 3. Hopefully, they will live to see another day. Anyway, these can easily be replaced for a few pennies.

Car-E squeezed behind the tank. too, but I wasn’t fast enough to capture that image. I’ll try again when he returns to watch the fish again.

The kitten even tapped on the hood to see if there was a way inside the tank. Luckily, for all involved the top was secure.

Some house pets entertain others. Right now these fish are entertaining my kitten, Car-E and they all are entertaining me.

Kitten vs. old cat

Car-E the kitten wants to play all the time.

Othello 16 yr old cat wants a treat. For the old cat, the kitten is a pain in the butt.

Here’s one encounter between the kitten and the old cat.

No one was hurt. Car-E gave up quickly, but….

Car-E soon forgets and goes after Othello again.

It takes a lot to get Car-E to give up playtime.

Chicken feet

I thought I’d share two clips of my older hens after the storm today.

The first hen I call Brownie. She has another name or two given to her by grandchildren, but I forget what they named her.

Silver is also known as Chocolate Chip. She was talking to herself as she wandered about the yard.

Soon after taking these videos, I encouraged them to go into their coop before another rain shower watered the farm again.

Hens make nice pets AND they give me eggs, too.
