While in Denver I did make it to a Rockies game, and it turned out to be Rockies laundry tote day. We were early, so were among the lucky 10,000 or so who got this folding tote made of wire and cloth. It folds flat to about 18"x14", and pops open to a square, sloping-sided container with cloth handles.

I unfolded it yesterday, and Fish promptly turned it on one side and decided it was a cat nest. He dragged a couple of toys into it, and played in and around it for a while before going back to other spots for the day. Then the tote migrated into the computer room today, but he remained uninterested.

A little while ago I heard Agatha growling her "leave me alone, pest!" growl, and turned around to reinforce the message for her. To my surprise, she was in the tote, and Fish was just in front, poking at her.

Fish and Agatha

She left but returned later, and the cycle repeated. Fish has now taken possession, as the desirability of the tote has gone way up with Agatha's interest.

You know, what with your cats, fairestcat's lions, and neonnurse's goat, it seems to be "Animal Farm" over on LJ.

Your cats have great names; was Fish named after Leslie? ;)

Fish was named by the person who tried to adopt him before me (her dog was the problem)--she said she always wanted a cat named Fish. I have not had a chance to ask her why...

"That's my cat, Fish", perhaps?

That's one of the thoughts I had, too. Or maybe it's from some bit of popular culture that I'm not familiar with.

Having a cat named Fish does lead to confusing conversations: "I have to go feed my cat, Fish", or "I have to go feed Fish" leads to people wondering why feeding a fish seems to be a time-critical activity...
