My kiddo was playing at friends place with his fuzzy pet cats pouncing, stalking and grasping together. The outdoor play was an outlet for the predatory skills of cats and kids together. The day passed and Later we came back home. My kiddo’s birthday was approaching and he was pestering us for a pet cat or dog as he knew that the birthday month is sultry and ripe to ask for favors. Me of course was hesitant and carelessly agreed to minimize his tantrums temporarily. It was going to be tricky as I had other plans.On the big day as we surprised him, his chin dropped to his chest. Immediately he crossed his arms and outburst started, also triggering my meltdown.

I had got him a golden fish in a beautiful adorned water tank with pompous decorative. After a miniature outburst Soon he outgrew of his bad temper and came closer to check the paraphernalia. Abruptly he gave a disowning look to the fish.

The luscious orange fish returned back a grumpy face.

  1. A fish can understand rejection. So it gave a grumpy face. Anyway, fish is not a cat. Why not give him a cat as present? Nice story with a different angle.
