The Directors at the Institute noticed that Big Fishy seemed lonely in his big aquatic mansion. We decided to get a companion for him. Little Fishy has doubled in size since we acquired him last spring. That’s good because at first, we were afraid Big Fishy would have the little speckled goldfish for dinner. But we eyeballed Big Fishy’s mouth and figured it was too small for the new fish. So, we plopped Little Fishy into the spa and he (or she) remained uneaten.
Both fishies like to circle their home side-by-side. Perhaps this is why Big Fishy has gained so much weight—he is content with his young companion.
The feline study subjects at the Institute now commune, often nose-to-nose, with both fishies.
Here is Big Fishy with his friend Little Fishy:

The subjects at the Institute spend hours watching their favorite buddy Big Fishy who is now over 10 inches long. We have noticed that the big, golden boy is getting rotund after 9 years of dining on premium fish food twice a day. The directors have decided to limit feeding to just once a day.
Do subscribers to this blog think Big Fishy enjoys his din din too much?

Ah, the Kitty Cat Entertainment Center was well worth the investment. Today I caught Big Fishy and Zippy taking their morning stroll.
Zippy is best friends with Big Fishy. They are often observed communicating in the evening.
Zippy is intensely interested in Big Fishy who always swims to where she is perched. I will try to get a picture of them “kissing” for you but this time it happened before I was ready.
Here is the scene from the other side of the aquarium. Eight-year-old Big Fishy is nearly 10 inches long! We at the Institute expect him to live a full forty years and entertain a series of study subjects such as Zippy.
