and his name shall be called...

goodness me, I have forgotten all about the little poll I set up to name my fish!

I know, crazier things have never happened... what with other things to do that may be slightly more important than naming my fish... like for example BEATING MELISSA AT TETRIS!

Anyways, my fish now officially has a name... it iiiiiisssss...

STING

Thank you Andrea for the fabulous name suggestion. I loved it from the minute i read that comment... and knew no matter what happened, that would be the name for my fish in the end. However, honorable mention does go to Sally's suggestion for Kau'i which I did love... I love hawaii, and it really seemed appropriate what with the hawaiian sand and all... but alas, the fish does look like a rocker more than the island of hawaii. Therefore I have resolved to actually name Sting's house after the island of Kau'i (pronounced kah-oo-AH-ee).

I'm sorry Melissa, apparently you are the only one who thinks my fish should have been named after a PARASITE! I know you were both of those votes too... you probably logged in just so you could vote twice. I know your dirty little ways.

In other fish news, I have been having a problem of sorts. My little kitty Sophie makes a most wonderful bed buddy as she is immensely warm during these cold winter months. Plus, she is soft, and I like to pet her. However, since Sting has taken up residence in my room, all she is interested in is eating his bamboo and then ultimately him.

I have found the bamboo pulled up out of the sand twice so far even with my attempts to keep her out of there. it's sad really. she is meowing all the time and just dying for some love and attention... but she's naughty and cannot be allowed to eat my fish. or my bamboo for that matter. i think the leaves on the top of it are dying because of her carnage.



She's so stinkin evil. I'm trying to think of a way to keep her away from it whilst still being able to enjoy it as I have. Ugh. Stupid cats.

I love the name Sting, it suits the fish well. Also, I too have a cat and the kids want a fish and I am scared to buy them one, so good luck keeping that cat happy, without fish food!!

She looks like a demon.

Cool name for your fish.

Sting is a perfect name for a fish! As for the cat vs fish debacle, I have no idea what to do. I almost had to choose between child and fish (of course the child would've won), but luckily Gabi lost inerest in harassing the fish after a short while. I doubt the cat will give up that easily though!

You'll probably want to put a screen over Sting's tank. My Dad had two cats and two fish and the screen worked quite well for keeping paws out of the fishbowl. That was until the two cats got together and simultaneously pushed the bowl onto the floor. Fortunately my Dad heard the commotion and "Flash" the fish was found flopping on the carpet and saved just moments from death. But then later my Dad tried to bleach the rocks because he thought they stunk and poor Flash went to fishie heaven anyway.

Ok, that was a long, rambling story. Enjoy the fish and bamboo!
