This Woman's Life: Half-eaten fish ruins the karma, with neighbour's cat under suspicion

I've heard that water and fish create good karma around the house, inside and out. And we all want some good karma for ourselves and our loved ones, don't we?

For many years we have had a water feature that trickles down onto a man-made large fish retreat. The aperture was made by himself one sunny afternoon in June many years ago. I'd say fish pond - but it has far more character than a mere pond. He placed a miniature Japanese bridge the size of a pencil case at the point where the water becomes visible. It is designed to trip the water as it tumbles down.

Over time he added some lovely looking fish, none of them any bigger than a fat trout but all of them bigger than a goldfish. To the periphery, along with the little bridge, he added a fake crab, a Buddha and a fat old frog - that was also ornamental.
