So after 200 miles, I am back in my hometown for Thanksgiving. I brought my female in her 2 gallon bowl back with me. Well I guess sometime last night (as I am not staying at my house) my cat decided to play with the fish bowl. Thankfully the fish is unharmed, but the bamboo was knocked out of the bowl. Not sure how long it was out, but it was quite dried up. Still green, but wrinkly. So I put it back in the water and put plastic over the top to keep everything (hopefully including the bamboo) in the tank. I guess I will find out tomorrow if it lives.
