Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Hi, all. I've been here a couple weeks now and just realized I haven't done this. Oopsie.

My name is Josie. I'm a stay-at-home mom of three (crazy) wonderful kids, and married to a (grumpy) teddy bear of a guy. Quite a few cats allow us to live with them. Ten, actually: Cap'n Jack, Boots, Dora, Murphy, Daisy, Wade, Cody, Randy, AJ, and Sheamus.

I'm not new to betta keeping. Before marriage my mother and I had a lot of fish. I cringe now when I look back at all the horrible things we did to our babies- no heaters! Keeping them with other fish! Eek! Thank god I found this site before I repeated old mistakes.

The kids - they're 10, 8, and 2 - wore me down and I agreed to getting fish. We now have two beautiful male bettas: Unnamed white HM (mine) and Pinkie, a pink VT (though she's starting to show hints of red on her fins now so she might be a marble? We'll see), and Goldie: a fantail goldfish.

Aside from my pets and kids, I enjoy reading, writing, internet memes, watching a little too much true crime shows, watching a little too much wrestling, cooking, and board games. When the weather gets cold I like to knit and crochet, and when it's warm I like to go outside and putter around in the yard. Despite my grandmother's tireless efforts, I have no green thumb. Unless you count honeysuckle...

I like good books, old movies, and a proper cuppa tea. I don't like long walks on the beach or candlelight dinners, unless I'm writing about someone else experiencing it.

That's all I can think of for now. I could go on and on (I'm quite verbose as you can see) but I suppose I should feed the kids before they start a revolution.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Your intro. is priceless LOL. And I'm wondering how you're going to keep 10 cats from getting into those fish tanks.

With the exception of Sheamus, they're all too lazy to be bothered. He investigated the first tank I set up but after getting splashed with water has stayed far away. I don't think the others have even noticed the tanks.
