Where did it go? Whooops!

I had a little something happen on Saturday morning.
I was home with the boys while Em played in yet another volleyball tourney. I thought I'd get a little cleaning done...just a little.
I started in the kids bathroom and noticed that the fish bowl looked disgusting.
I thought I'd change the water....but when I dumped the fish into the temporary container...he jumped out and fell in the sink. Right before I could grab him...he slid down the drain. Whoooops!
I stood there in shock. Oh no...what to do. I pulled up the stopper...he was gone!
So I added lots of water in hopes that the fish would swim on out to wherever it is that all that water goes.

Another thing you need to know ~
This is the fishbowl that the cat drinks water out of daily. He has done this for years and never bothered the fish...ever.
The cat looked worried and wasn't sure whether or not to take a drink.
Later in the day, Jonathan was taking a shower ...I heard him calling me. Uhhhh Mom! I think the cat finally ate the fish.
So I had to come clean.
This week, I'll stop by PetSmart and pick up another fish!

For more alphabe-Thursday posts featuring the letter "W"...head on over to Jenny Matlock's blog!

  1. Oh my...I can imagine that feeling of standing there as the fish goes down the sink...and there's nothing you can do. At least you got a good picture!

  2. The hardest part would be the cat knowing I did it too.

  3. What a horrible accident. And that cat really does look upset--way to lay the guilt trip on.


  4. This post cracked me up. Seriously? Down the sink? Still laughing.
    And you looked so cute on WIWW. I'm jealous.

  5. Oh my goodness, this is why we have no pets, I can see this totally happening to me:)

  6. Awww poor wittle fishy :( It is sad when you lose a pet even a fish . that must have been a little scary for you. I know it happened to me a couple times too but mine jumped out of the bowl and I didn't find it until much later ; all dried up :/

  7. I love that picture, it's perfect! I would have been dying watching that little fishy slide away. Bummer, but really funny story! Great "W" post!

  8. Hahaha! That is such a funny story!! I hope that fish survived somewhere.

  9. Oh. My. Gosh! Okay, that's kinda funny. And, I thought for sure from the picture that the cat ate it. Go figure.

  10. I would've reacted the same way. Add more more water to help the fish along. Maybe it saw its chance for the great escape.

  11. OMG! Maybe he'll finally find his family like "Nemo!"

  12. Ooops! That cat looks so accusing!

  13. That is hilarious! Totally something that I would do! Have a great weekend!

  14. Oh my goodness. Never had that happen before. Hope you get a cool new fish. Good choice for the letter W.


  15. Jen,
    lovely humor,
    best wishes next time.

  16. That is hilarious! And so is that picture! I can't believe the cat drank out of the bowl. He does look lost in that pic w/out his buddy. Too funny!

    um...and YES! We definitely have to meet up when you come to town in May. I am totally looking forward to that. :)

  17. Oh my gosh, I feel bad for laughing but that is kind of funny! I hope the little fishy made it's way safely to wherever the water goes too. :)
