Tropical fish and goldfish live together

Pancakes and French Fries

My dad grew up in a home with a wavy tin roof. I always thought that sounded nice, but he claims the only people who believe that live under shingles. Although the neighborhood was respectable, his house was run-down and in disrepair. The neighborhood had gentrified around his parents, but this was still the city. The streets teamed with feral cats at night. The second everyone went inside, cats in heat went out and prowled for mates. Calling and calling and calling with that throaty rumble that never stops. The males answered in clowders (had to look that one up) and fought for the females. my dad’s tin roof.

He knew they were cats. Logically, he knew this. But in the middle of the night logic flies out the window when you are seven years old. Cats in heat on a roof? Maybe. La Llorona and her demon friends off to spirit a boy off in the middle of the night for teasing that neighborhood girl with his dogs? Much, much more likely.

My mom was that neighborhood girl. The more she ignored him, the more offended he became. He even tried to impress her with his Boxer and Pomeranian and a soccer ball, but it turned out she was afraid of dogs and terrible at sports. She told him his dog tricks were stupid–little kid stuff–and to leave her alone because she had important big kid stuff to do, like walk to the bakery for her mom. He left her alone after that, but he also made sure to leave the gate open enough for the dogs to sneak out and chase her down the street to her fancy baker.

He knew it was wrong, but he couldn’t help himself. There was something really satisfying about the sound of her screaching traveling down the street so fast, even if it meant that in the middle of the night he wasn’t always sure those were cats on his roof.


Way too much work.

I had 10 cent goldfish last for 5 years, to the point where i had to give them to someone with a pond because i wasnt going to get a tank bigger then a 55, and they are still alive last i heard. way easier to take care of. my tropical fish just always die. I liek goldfish tails and how they swim.
