Why in the world would anyone want a pet you can not pet?

We have an aquarium in the living room. I like to watch the fish swim. It is relaxing. So is watching snow fall-until I have to shovel it.

My wife feeds the fish. They would all go belly up if left to me. I am not cold to fish, I just do not care. I go fishing, but I release the fish I catch. Cleaning fish is messy, and makes one’s hands smell.

The cats like to sit atop the aquarium and dip their paws into the water. Sometimes the tank empties of fish. Is this a form of recycling.

Soylent brown is pets!
