By the way, after reading your post I did a little research on savannah cats, and they are awesome! I kind of want one myself now.

OMG I too have just researched savannah cats and I really want one. They are so gorgeous and when the sad time comes that my little ones are too old I will def be considering one!!

only one of our three cats is interested in one of our three tanks and that's because she likes to lay on top of the nice warm dual t5ho fixture

Both of my cats pretty well ignore the fish tank. The only time they go near it is if I'm sitting on the couch looking at it. Then they get between me and the tank. Heaven forbid that I show the fish more attention than the cats!

I have a Bengal cat myself. He consistently jumps 6-7 feet in the air do get onto my TV, dressers, countertops, etc. so the fish tank at 4.5-5 feet was easy for him. I have shooed him off a few times, and used my classic line, "Not for kitties..." I used to wake up, when I had my glass tops, and find wet paw prints dried on the front glass from where he would dip his paws in the water in the back where there was a small opening, and rub it all over the front glass.

I never knew how to stop him, but I got to the point that the sound was so ingrained into my mind, that I would actually wake up from sleeping if he jumped up there.

Furthermore, I have since added a screen top and ditched the glass tops altogether and so far, other than having a few actual nightmares of him jumping up, falling through and drowning, I haven't had any issue.

I just hung my Radion on the tank and now I'm waiting to come out and see him using it as a swing!

Good luck to YOU!

I did some research after finding this post, I read they don't like the feel of tinfoil on their feet so I have laid tinfoil on all the tanks the cat likes to visit and so far it's working great.

I have a tiger/tuxedo kitty just under a year. Let me tell you she loves my tanks. Sleeps on them every night and watches them every day. Think up some kind of system to keep it out of the tanks, paws included. She cracks me up! I love to watch her watch them.

I have 3 Cats a Female Calico and Two male "alley" cats....Get a squirt gun or a Spray bottle that shoots water with some pressure. when they get near quick blast.....try not to let them see you do it they need to think it came from the "Tank". If they see you do it then they will wait to jump on the tank when you are not around......Better a little wet now then a lot later...
