Eulogy For A Catfish

I'm relinking to the movie of Barney scaring the catfish because the catfish has taken his last swim. We've had him for about 2 and a half years now. He was originally in the big tank with all my Bala Sharks but he was too agressive and was banished to a tank all his own. He did well and by all appearances looked fine. I'm not sure what got him but it was sudden. He was Lisa's favorite but Barney really loved him the most. In fact, the fish was the first thing in the house that Barney saw when we brought him home. Barney came out of the bathroom for the first time and immediately started swatting at the tank. That's one of the first pictures we took of Barney and he never got over his fascination with the fish. A scatmat keeps him away from the Bala's but we let him try to play with the catfish, he never got tired of it.

He was a good catfish. We'll miss him.

Editors Update: Lisa just emptied the tank to clean it out and Barney stood up to it and started rubbing the outside of the glass to get the fish to come out from where he was "hiding". It's the saddest thing I've ever seen.

Sorry to hear 'bout the fish. That bit about Barney is terribly wrenching to read. If it was a person it would just be funny but since it's a cat, it's really quite sad.

I would try to make this a link but I'm not really feelin' it. but here's that website you asked about--

Total Hilarity!!!!
