Yes, the males are much prettier, but the females are more entertaining to me as a "companion" pet
. I used to have about one of every color of the males in college, plus a female or two. I went out of town one time and left my fish in my bathroom at my parents house, and my mom discovered that while the goldfish were happy to see anybody, my bettas weren't until they figured out that she was the one feeding them!
And no, she isn't about to show the cats the fish, sign or no sign, after I closed the door the first time we left the house "so the cats don't bother her". Ab's little eyes got wide and you could see the wheels turning in there!
Nope, no kitty visits for Tidbit!
She has even decided that she doesn't need her nightlight after I mentioned (in response to her asking if Tidbit was going to take an afternoon nap, too) that fish sleep when it's dark because they don't have eyelids to close their eyes!
Kids! You never know when they are actually listening!
