Honey, my parents' Maine Coon, would sit and watch the fish but never attempted to drink the water or catch the fish. Ysabeau, my 8mo tabby, decided when she was about 4mo that Agamemnon, my beta, might make a good playmate. Caught her one afternoon with her paws in the tank (she'd somehow managed to open the hood), and subsequently moved Agamemnon to a room with a door. I'm really hoping that the height of the 30g on its stand will deter her from another attempt...

My Bombay cat likes to sit on my futon that's about 7 feet away and watch the fish. He knows if he gets on it I'll, well let's just say he'll have opened Pandora's box.

Yep! Several times I have seen cat hair & started shining a flashlight on it thinking it was an unknown parasite in the tank. Once a piece of hair got stuck on a fish's fin, gave me quite a scare. I removed him from the tank, only to find a disconnected hair in the little cup I scooped him with.

My cat used to only drink water from the fish tanks. Recently, I got him a waterfall water dish and now he only uses the tank as a launch pad to reach the upper cabinets.

My apisto had a hair hanging out his gill for 2 days, i was about to intervene but it sorted itself out.. I added a water bubbler cat dish and it seemed to help sway them away from the tank..

My cat used to jump on my tank, swat off the filter cover and drink from the back of the filter. It finally got to the point that I taped down the filter cover! After he figured out he couldn't get it open anymore he resigned to just sitting and watching

Ugh, today my kitten decided to tear open a new bag of hikari first bites and eat it. http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...psimen9uu8.jpg guilty as charged.
