I like animals in general and always had (multiple) pets growing up. I have been wanting to get a cat for some time, but when you are moving around a lot it doesn’t seem fair.Â But now I have a new pet!Â My good friend Jordan is a great gardener and koi aficionado, and she has got me “my own” fish to live in her pond.Â Introducing Blixt, the lightning-fast silver butterfly koi!Â He really stands out against the bottom of the pond, so I hope and eagle or heron doesn’t spot him.
Graham also has a new fish… unnamed as of yet, any suggestions?Â This guy is darker and harder to see in the pond – maybe a useful trait.Â I like his gold fins. Maybe we can call him Goldfinder! (pronounced like “fin” not “fine”)
So not a pet-able pet that I live with, but a pet nonetheless, and I am delighted!
PS: I donÂ´t actually know that the fish are male, so I am going with male pronouns now for convenience.Â If the fish decide they feel more like female fish, I will be first in line to buy them fish lipstick.
