    Today at petsmart I went to exchange a betta (a female that died within the 15 day guarentee). Well while I was there I noticed they had raphael cats. They always have the sign but hardly ever have any so I was going to buy one. (love these catfish) Well while the guy was getting out my fish he told me that they had biig ones in the back, so I asked how much. Turns out they were an employees who was getting rid of his tank, so I got the fishy as an adoption :) For free :) I've named him Mr. Cat..lol. I've always heard that raphael cats hid a lot but this guy is active, he's constantly scrounging for food. So cute too :)

    P.S. A friend of mine who used to work @ Petsmart knows the guy who owned Mr. Cat, so I now know that he's 2 years old :)
