Ok, I’m still a little out of it, but I managed to summon up enough time and energy to introduce you to my new desk partner, Dakota;
Dakota is a blue and black, male, crown tail Betta. When I first brought him home, I put him in an old, glass, open top fish tank that I’ve since my old Betta died a couple years ago. (and finding that old fish tank in my closet was one of the inspirations for getting Dakota) but the point I making is when I had my old one, my cat Buford didn’t pay any attention to it, and I didn’t think he would to Dakota either, wrong!
The first thing Buford did after I put the bowl on my printer table was he started drinking out of the bowl, and spotted Dakota swimming around.
Well, Buford was very, VERY, interested in that open topped fish tank, but all he did was drink out of it, but I was afraid that his drinking, would escalate to his fishing, so I knew right then I needed to get a new tank with a lid if I wanted to keep Dakota. (and I did) So, off to Petco again.
Well, I got another tank, and this one will fit on my desk where I work all the time and not on my printer table that way I can see and watch him.
And I’ll let you know, Buford was THROUGHLY disgusted when he discovered that I had moved Dakota to a new tank with a lid, I got the most hateful, cat look that I ever had gotten from Buford, and I’ve gotten a few, but I know now for certain because of that look I got that his drinking out of the bowl, would have escalate to his fishing out of the bowl. (sorry Buford, but I like my fish)
Although now I’m starting to realize how much I enjoy Betta’s; and now I’m starting to think about getting another one or two when my life settles down again and I get my new desk area more stationary … boy Buford will be pissed at me, 1,2, maybe even 3 Betta’s in his room that are off limits for his consumption.
