I met hubby for lunch. we discussed it....the net was right where I left it. I would have heard her knock it over, my desk is right there... I couldn't SEE it, but heard it. The two rooms are divided by a halfwall with an archway, a straight line would have me positioned 6 feet from the bowl.
If she had found her dead, she would have screamed her head off.
However...we do have a dog. He WAS in the house at the time, because I remember letting him out later and waiting for him to come back in.
But he is scared of everything, I imagine a flopping fish would have sent him scattering. (we adopt animals. animals no one else wants. most people don't like dogs who are afraid of their own shadow LOL)
I dont know that he would have eaten a dead fish. Before I quit eating dead fish (haha), he wouldnt eat leftovers whenever I grilled salmon or made tuna noodle casserole. But he does eat the fish oil I put in his weekly special broth I make for his heart and coat.
This is going to drive me nuts. Gonna call hubby and make him removes everything from tank. He wouldnt even look in the filter this am, he is afraid to find her corpse. honestly, i am as well. I will freak.
