Dear Sasha, here is your special web birthday gift. It is a very small book of some photos of you in a PDF file. As you cannot put PDF files on your old fashioned blog, the food bearer asked us to put it on our blog for you.
Princess Aurora for all the Pond Fish
p.s. It took a long time for us to make your birthday card and we hope you are grateful.
The food bearer, Lynettea, says she made your book on Canva https://www.canva.com/
on the web for you.

The Cat Sasha is always very interested in supervising us at meal times. Princess Aurora wondered why he was so often staring at us when we ate. Our foods are very tiny, mere grains, and could surely not tempt a huge cat like Sasha.
Maybe he thinks he will put us in some kind of order to eat the foods. We would resent that. We do not like any interference in our regular habits. We are capable of eating our foods without supervision.
Now we find that it is his birthday in a couple of days and Lynettea wants us to surprise him with a secret gift. We have not had a gift for our many birthdays. So many birthdays we can count when no-one has given us a gift.
We resent being asked. But we suppose we will comply, as the food bearer has requested it.
When Princess Aurora asked him why he was looking at us, he fobbed her off with a silent stare. Then Lynettea forced him to move away, so she was not able to continue the interview.
The cat has his garden cane basket nearby and we see him at feeding time, when he comes onto the edge of the pond and stares at us. He thinks he can supervise us! As if we need any help. Most of us are far wiser and older than he.
one of Sasha’s furry internet friends passed on yesterday. WE don’t know what to think about life and death, but we are sorry for his devoted humans.
We will try to leave a message in case we can as fish. We are finding we do not have a proper fish identity when we post, which means it is difficult to attract any followers. We haven’t found any other blogs by Shubunkins or Comets, or any other fish.
we swim we float we wave our fins
We see him stare at us as we eat our foods. He just stares. We think his eyes are pond water green. Looking through the true world of water into the false world of air he wavers before our eyes. Princess Aurora rises to the surface to check for any danger. The dragon is motionless. The water flows over our fins. The cat steps back as the human calls.
the pond ripples slowly outward from the fountain spout
We saw him on the edge of the pond and then we know he went out the gate. We know he is not allowed out. He thinks he looks after the human, but she knows he could get run over if he went onto the road, so she is very concerned.
We don’t think he has many brains and he is very young. Fortunately the human saw him at the bedroom window, she told us and she called him in before he could get into trouble.
But underwater it is mild and wet as usual. The Cat Sasha was very interested in seeing us feed, as we come up to the surface, but he then retired. The human says he went for a walk with her and interacted with next door’s dog. Continue reading “Cloudy and Cold”
