Innocence

Epitome of innocence ~

“A person or thing that is a perfect example of a particular quality or type.”

Our cat Fluffy would not leave this Siamese fighting fish alone. She would watch it  and sometimes stick her paw in the bowl to give it a few whacks or try to catch it. One day it was swimming on its side, one fin lifted feebly in the air. I knew it wasn’t long for this world. Fish tend to be short-lived anyway but the cat had probably hastened its  demise somehow. A similar thing happened to my daughter’s hamster. She hadn’t closed the lid firmly enough after cleaning the cage. Sure enough, next day no more Nutmeg the hamster gleefully playing in the shavings. Fluffy sat in the corner licking her paws looking totally innocent.

Cats are great but sometimes they can be bloodthirsty little creatures!
