cats and fish

I have seen some people have pics of their cats as well as their tanks.

I was wondering what other people with furry four leggers have to say about keeping fish and and cats.

My cat is just plan strange. I can leave a tuna sandwich out and she will not touch it. She is more interested in getting pet than eating or playing.

I have introduced her my fishies. Have held her up to the tank to look at the fish. She will look at the fin-folk for a minute and then look at me with her "am I supposed to impressed" look.

My cat has never been a jumper, but I have heard of cats trying to jump on the hoods. I have heard of cats opening the lid and going fishing.

Mine are fascinated by them. They'll sit and watch them all day. One tried to jump on a tank while I was test filling it in the yard and fell in, but other than that, they seem to avoid the top. The fish tanks are just kitty tv here.

Half the reason I got my first tank was stress relief the other was something for my kitty to watch. Instead she watches me fiddle with the tanks instead of watching the fish!

One of my cats used to jump on the lids and chase the fish around. When it was a kitten it would sleep on top of the HOB filter. The other cats seemed pretty uninterested.

The kitten on the HOB would have made a cute picture.

I think my cat is strange, no interest in fish or cat nip.... Maybe she is a dog trapped in a cat's body.

We don't have cats, but our dog Karma sits and watches our fish. When our lab Loki was alive he would lick the glass of our 29g.

Hopefully will have my bedroom tank set up soon.... That might make my cat more interested. My futon is facing towards the tv and away from the tanks. But when my cat lays on the bed she usually faces the blank wall where I plan on putting one of the tanks.
