RIP: Twitchy the Fish
Tara's pet goldfish, "Twitchy" died sometime during the night.

I found her laying down in the bottom of the tank on her side. I took her into the bathroom, said "A few words" and then sent her into the afterlife that exists just beyond the U-bend.

She will be missed.

Twitchy was one of five "Feeder Fish" purchased just prior to FSG last year to keep my cat, "Tara", company while I was away. Tara deemed four of the five to be "unworthy" and killed them all in one day. Twitchy was found either to be of adequate breeding, or perhaps just faster than the others and had been permitted to live.

This makes me feel better that I did not go to Balticon yesterday as I surely would have returned to find her dead and worse wondering If I'd forgotten to feed her before I left.

After a thorough tank cleaning Tara will get a new batch of feeder fish to pick through. Behold! The Sorting CAT!

Twitchy lived a long (for a feeder fish) and full life and evaded Tara with unmatched skill. She will be missed.
