August 14th? That was my last entry? Hey, what happened to my entry about the costume party the Roaring Twenties one? The one from last weekend? It just vanished & wouldn’t you know it, that one was typed directly into the entry form on the diary instead of copied in so I don’t even have a copy! I saw it on the page, haven’t been here for awhile & it’s GONE!!!! Well, it was a great party & will have to write it up meow it out another time because have another entry since Thomas did his on the aquarium. I just adored fish bowls & aquariums! Why did they bring those fish in the house if they weren’t for us? The fish bowl right before the aquarium was just great too & maybe this entry should be about it & I’ll save the one on me & Thomas & are tag team efforts to go after the fish for later a game that Ratt & Thomas also later played. HEY! You haven’t added my friend & later family member Ratt to these pages yet, the great British Blue cat! He was called a calmer cat than me & a much worse bully & the neighborhood kids always joked that his Dad the father of his family who was a truck driver although he sometimes slipped & said Lorry, was British Mafia. Of course, in all probability he wasn’t but you know how kids are once a rumor starts so they all had to find excuses to go to his door & knock to see him. After all, he carried a gun but there was a great deal of truck hijacking going on then. He drove an 18 wheeler & was gone for days weeks sometimes even months on the road. Eventually Ratt came to live with me, but I’ll let him tell that story when he is added to the pages, but for now he lived with my first family & then moved in with my second most beloved family.
Aaahh, I was meowing about fish bowls. Yeah those were just great! We would get up on the table or wherever the fish bowl was for the day & they had at first just a goldfish & a black goldfish same type of fish you see but just black & they would go on & on about why the devil was it called a goldfish when it was black?! The fish kept getting bigger necessitating bigger & bigger fish bowls & eventually that’s why they got an aquarium because the goldfish just got huge! Also because when they got bigger bowls they added more fish though they did learn not to add really small baby type goldfish & hey now, wasn’t us gobbling those up & making them vanish. I’ll tell ‘ya that goldfish when they get big are real cannibals & will devour their own kind although at first, of course, we got blamed because we could just sit for hours & watch those fish swim around & duck our heads down to the bottom & lie down & go to sleep for a nice contented nap to dream about eating up those goldfish! How I loved sitting upright & staring down into that bowl & since I was growing as the bowl got bigger I got taller & could still look down at those fish who hated to surface when big cat faces were looking down at them. I really wasn’t interested at all in eating them when I first started watching them, just liked to tease torment & terrorize those silly fish. Stupid fish, I thought. No brains to them whatsoever but the boy & girl liked to talk to them & move their fingers around & watch in fascination as the fish followed their fingers. That’s how I learned to make them jump out though it was like the kids had some fish alarm attached to them cause they would always come running before we hurt the fish or before the fish died from being fish out of water & would pick them up flapping those fish were & drop them back down into the water. Not that we never ate any of the fish as sometimes we did get a medium sized newer fish after we figured out that they had figured out the big fish ate little fish. Finally we did get caught & so had to cool it on eating the fish for awhile so we would be allowed to watch them & slowly circle around their bowl & then the other direction. Our people said this was great exercise for us & that we actually cooperated & got along with our fish bowl exercises. Thomas just hated sticking his paw in the water & was much less patient than me. I loved sticking my paw in the water & just holding it very still until the fish came near, needed them to know the cat was the master & that I was letting them live but that I could catch them any time I wanted. Cats are masters over the fish & birds you know & if you didn’t, why you know now! Once the fish approached my paws over & over like it was safe I would unsheathe my claws & sometimes give a little swipe right by them, just needing them to understand hey if I want to catch you fishies I can catch you! And I could have & as meowed before did at times but they didn’t replace them right away so I lost my toys & lost my good dreams of fishies swimming in a bowl while I napped. Something just so peaceful & soothing about fish don’t you thing, hanging there in one spot in their bowl & then swimming around & mouth puffing away. Just loved those fish.
Will save that tag team aquarium team work entry for another time. For now just need to go check on my Mom & do a fly by & make sure she is okay & others in the family especially the little ones are okay.
