November 8 - Fish (#PhotoBlog365)

This is the main reason I don't really like cats: they kill for fun (for the same reason I don't like hunters). One of the many fishes in my girlfriend's pond that got killed by a cat passing by (good thing Valkat is just to damn lazy to go for the fishes or the birds). On the other hand: the water snails seem to like dead fish ...

Enjoyed your image and the commentary about cats. Im fond of cats and I would say cats dont kill for fun- Id say they play with anything that moves as a part of their nature. Unfortunately, anything that moves might die in the process! LOL!

They thus accidentally kill for fun ...

Funs over when the music stops.

That is a very nice photo. A slight definition of the food chain ( although the cat didn't use the fish for food).

With the snails as omnivores. They normally feed on dead plants ...

This reminds me of my neighbour's cat that used to kill rabbits, mice, etc. and leave their mutilated body parts lying around my house. Cleaning up was so disgusting.

That's the only thing Valkat - the cat that adopted my girlfriend - does do: bring in dead meat. Except for the fact that it was dead before she caught it: wiener schnitzels, meatballs, anything she can steal somewhere else smile

Thanks, Antonio. I of course didn't shoot this one today, but when I saw and shot it a few weeks ago, I immediately knew it would do well for today's theme smile

I would not have thought about snails being part of natures clean up crew.

It they wear shells, they are cleaners. The naked snails eat living leafs and so on, the shelled ones eat dead stuff smile

Makes sense I just never connected the dots so to speak in my pea sized brain lol.

I don't know if it makes sense, I only learned this from my girlfriend a few years ago. She's way more into observing nature than I am smile
