Mourning Fat Bob and Curious George

Writing about Goldfish–sitting from 1129 - Ali's () blog

Reading Alison's entry about goldfish has prompted me to come to terms with my recent losses.

Our first goldfish, Fat Bob died a few weeks ago whilst we were away on holiday. Curious George it seems, at all the food and starved the previously quite rotund Bob to death :(

Now, just a few weeks later, we have managed to kill George as well. I don't know if it was guilt, or just lonlieness that finally took George to meet his maker…either way, we are now fishless :(

To think we are meant to be looking after one of my parents' dogs next month!

  1. Goldfish really hate being alone. The worst thing in the world is a solitary fish. Get fish in pairs or threes. It's better for them.

    Are you getting some more fish to replace them? A marine tank in your conservatory might look cool.

  4. I feel quite sad. I put a post on my blog, you do a followup and end up with more comments than me! You're obviously a popular guy!

    Anyhow – on the subject of fish – I went to the Slug and Lettuce in Cardiff and instead of having a fish tank they projected a video of tropical fish in a tank onto a 6ft x 4ft area of white wall. It was so effective, relaxing and obviously there was no need to worry about the fish dying or having to clean the tank!

  5. Maybe I should do that. I can certainly manage to look after a computer. However, our tank has already cost us some money, and I'm not sure if I could justify a projector instead of a new fish :)

  6. but think of the things you could do with a projector that you couldn't do with a fish…
