Dearest Morgan, you are absolutely, stunningly gorgeous! What a beautiful Comet Goldfish you are, with those brilliantly-colored scales and that long, flowing, white tail. And how nice to see you swimming with your beautifully-colored best friend Silver, who is now swimming around by the Rainbow Bridge and watching over you. You miss Silver but have a new friend, Othello, who visits on occasion but is too lively for you to be around for long.
You have a delightful personality and make your dear person smile with your energy and antics, such as coming to the top of the tank when food is put in, then taking food from her/his hand and following the rest as it sinks down. Your dear human takes excellent care of you, and you and he/she love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Morgan, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and Othello and your dear person and all your family are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats. We know Silver Angel is rejoicing at the Bridge with the other Angels!
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
