We had our water changed a couple of days ago. Sasha was allowed to look at the water going back into the pond. We didn’t mind him staring at us. We were excited to have the hose making a jet over the water and love the refreshed feeling.
Here is our first video. It shows some of us swimming in The Pond.
The weather is hot again. It is supposed to be an Indian Summer, we heard. Summer does not seem to have stopped for a long time. We had some of our pond water changed over a week ago. No one seems to remember exactly when.
The days melt into one another.
The blue umbrella is opened to shelter us. Breakfast was stress free, as the cat stayed indoors. The food bearer told us he had appropriated a chair for himself by throwing out the former occupants.
This is typical cat behaviour, no doubt.
We are pleased for him and hope he stays there.
Meanwhile we swim. Silky water wavers through our fins . . .
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.

Here are some recent snapshots of us in The Pond. February 2017.
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.
The cat Sasha just watched this, but he can’t put it on his blog, so he asked us to try. We don’t get much of a look in although our blog is better in every way.
