    Not sure if there is a market for it or not but Cat's love fish so Stubb's and Vincent and all the rest of our Astro Cat's need warned to avoid the Goldfish alcohol plants any time they want to view the skies the alcohol messes up their vison and they won't be able to see squat or defend their primary pet from coyotes skunks raccoons bears or other varmints.

    Interesting article, thanks!

    nFA walks to the counter in a liquor store with a pack of hefeweissbier and is surprised to find a goldfish at the register.

    Goldie: "Show me your drivers license so I know you're of age".
    nFA: "That's very flattering, thanks."
    Goldie: "Don't let it go to your head. I'm just angling for an extra fin as a tip."
