cats and fish

i have 6 tanks 55gal, 50gal, 20gal, 2 10gal and a 5gal....all but 1 10 and the 5 have fish....also have 1 cat and a very small kitten.....it is alot of fun to watch the older cats actions towards the fish...and the kitten is starting to notice them now. i think have been very lucky so far as i have lost only 1 pleco to the cat....just curious as to how many others have cats and fish and how they interact

oh boy did you open up a can of worms. I'd say about 50% of members have cats and tanks. Mine likes to bat at the fish outside the glass. Or sit ontop of the 150 with the glass hoods and stare at them, trying to bat at one.

I have 4 cats. 3 of them show no interest at all in any of my fish. The baby though has figured out how to drink from the filter on my ten gallon tank (which is in the bathroom) and he will sit behind the tank and look at my betta. But he has never tried to catch the betta.

Oddly, my cat never pays any of my aquariums so much as a second glance.

Two of my three cats go out of their way to sleep on the canopies and drink from the tanks. I think we stopped the drinking from the tank problem.

How did you do that Menagerie? My step mom's cats drink from the tank and any advice would be great.
