So, a while ago, I made a short movie of my cat Alladin (the grey stripey “kitten”) watching my betta fish Zoot with great intent.
Zoot is over a year old– I kept him at work until a few weeks ago, when I brought him home in anticipation of various vacations. Normally my attitude towards fish is very blase– until Zoot, I’d never owned a fish for more than 3 weeks before it died. And Zoot has real personality, when he’s not sick or hurt. He’s only been sick once since I got him– a small bout of fungus that he mysteriously developed almost immediately after another office fishkeeper set her betta next to him so they could “flare” at each other.
Well, last night… it was like Jaws: the Revenge. I came home to…. well, you’ll see.
It was like walking in on a scene from a horror movie.
Warning: if you are a fish lover or betta keeper, some images in this film may be very disturbing.
