So my mum and I are just sitting in the lounge and my cat walks in with a massive Koi Carp fish in her mouth, drops it on the floor and IT'S ALIVE. So I ran and fetched a bucket of water and we've put the fish in. Didn't think it would survive but 15 minutes later and it's swimmig around quite happily.

Now what should I do? :confused:

I don't know where she got it from and I know nothing about fish! I don't want the poor thing to die.

You could go door to door if you're not too koi about it?

Maybe you might have a chance of catching the owner? Best to do it now so they don't end up reeling about it later.

Alright then, I'll take the bait.

The scale of this incident is clearly causing your judgement to flounder.

On a more serious note, if there are any ponds nearby that might have fish in them it may be worth letting the pond owners know. If not then looks like your cat caught your dinner.

And that's all I have to say on this matter. Fin.

My cat did this exact same thing about 10 years ago! My mum just wrapped it in foil and dropped it in the neighbours pond because that's where we think it came from haha just knock around the neighbours house asking if they have koi karp in their garden

Hahaha. Oh, you guys! I'm scared to tell the neighbours though, as in this area people often put anto-freeze tuna down for the cats I don't wanna give anyone a motive.

Go to your local cat shelter,

Pick up a friendly feline for free,

Wait for it to catch a £2k fish from your neighbors pond :yes:

Plan your new life of crime with your fuzzy accomplice.
