This post is just for Celia, my friend in England, that laughed when I mentioned feeding MY CAT, Oscar Snuggles, King of Tidewater, catfish. We bought some frozen catfish because they were processed in the US, rather than in China or some other third world country. We had seen several news items on how bad the processing conditions are in some countries when they process fish. Soooo, we got the bright idea of trying catfish. I HATE CATFISH! The very thought of eating something that is a scavenger just does not appeal to me at all. We bought the fish, tried them ONCE and I decided Oscar would enjoy them must more than we would, so we cooked him the catfish. He loved them.

My neighbor when fishing last weekend and caught these catfish and I took photos just for Celia over at

There really are catfish. I didn't make that up. Oh, they will stick you with those whisker looking fins they have and it HURTS! They are also very hard to clean, you have to pull that dark skin off with a pair of pliers, because they don't have scales.

I've posted that photo on my blog. What a fish. Whiskers almost as big as mine.

George, you better watch out. Your whiskers may (or may not) be bigger, but I can assure those whiskers in the pictures are meaner.

Oh boy, that's a face only a mother could love!

I've never tried catfish. I've heard they are heck to clean, and hard to kill.

That's one ugly fish! Never eaten one as they are not kosher.
