Our new non-furry family members

In my last post I told you that mom & dad were working on a gift the whole family could enjoy, and we’re finally ready to share some photos.

We got three new Bettas, or Siamese fighting fish. They’re very pretty and fun to watch.

Betta fish - red

Betta fish - blue

Betta fish - violetThe red and blue fish are doing well, but the violet fish has bloat. Dad’s been treating him with a special diet for a few days and he’s getting a little better, but he’s not out of the woods yet. My paws are crossed that he’ll be okay. 

I have a couch in front of the tanks where I can watch them swim around, but it’s also fun to get up close and sniff the fishies through the hole in the top of the tanks.

The fishies smell interesting, but I’m not sure they’d be very tasty. They’re not very meaty and they have big fins. Mom said we can’t eat family members and besides, she took fish out of my diet to see if that solves my itchy skin problem.  I guess I’ll stick to eating chicken and keep the fish for entertainment.

    What beautiful fishes and excellent TV for kitties. Lily Olivia’s brothers’ family had fish and it was fun to watch them watching the fishies. Hope your dad can get the purple one better. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    I wish we had some fish TV! Although I’m not sure where my human would put them so that Binga wouldn’t knock them over.

  11. Dey look delishus, errrr, pretty!

  12. Gattina says:

    They are very beautiful ! You can just consider the tanks as your private Television !

  13. Annie says:

    How fun, Raven! They’re so pretty and I bet it’s entertaining to watch them swim around with their big fins.

    The lady had a female Betta several years ago. She would feed her a small piece of a cooked pea every so often to prevent bloat. We hope he’ll be okay.

    • Raven says:

      That’s what dad is doing. The sick fishy has eaten cooked pea for several days along with some regular food. It’s been 1 week and he’s finally looking like a healthy fish. They’ll all get fed pea as part of their weekly diet.

  14. What pretty Betta! Hope your sickly one gets better.

  15. Jan K says:

    Very cool! They are so pretty, so way better for entertainment than for eating. We sure hope the violet fish gets better! Are you going to name them?

    • Raven says:

      Right now they’re red, blue, and violet. We may think of more creative names after we’re sure everyone lives. 🙂

  16. Clooney says:

    Wow, they are really beautiful…purrs to the purple fishy, we hope all will be well. Raven, you must be having the best time watching them, what fun!

  17. BZ Dogs says:

    Definitely a no-no to eat family members! Your new friends are lovely, and hopefully all will be feeling their best soon.

  18. Pumpkinpuddy says:

    I don’t know if I could look at fishies every day and not want to eat them. You have pawsome will power!

  19. William says:
