Sad news

Today our gang lost a member. Phinnigan crossed the rainbow bridge last night. He had been acting sick for most of the week and we had been treating him with some anti bacterial/anti fungal medicine for a few days. His phins had deteriorated and he had something going on with his eye. Hubby found him sunk to the bottom of the tank this morning. I am sad and feel like I should have done more to help him in the weeks prior to him getting really sick, but with fish it isn't easy to know what to do.
So now, we are just the Feather and Furr gang. :(


In other news: William is on lock down in the PTU. He ran out the door 2 times this morning and across the road on the second time. I'll probably let him out soon, he's been locked up for about an hour.
Update: He's not on lock down anymore, I let him out at about 1:30, after being in for about 1 1/2 hours, I think, it might not have been that long. I think he fell asleep anyway, so it wasn't much for punishment. Hopefully he learned something though.

That is a very sad loss to your family indeed. What a wonderful fish, he certainly was the most well known fishy in the cat blogosphere!

We're sorry to hear about Phin. We know you're sad to lose your friend, but it would have been worse if your Mommy had lost you too! You can't just run off like that Willie!

I'm sorry to hear about Phinnegan. He was a good fish.

As for Willie...oh boy! You should never ever run across the street!

Only 10 more years to go

Until then, I can practice my driving skills so that when I turn 16, I'll be ready to go for my test at the DMV and I'll pass on ...
