    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.

    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.
