My 29 gallon tank doesn't have a lid because of the light fixture [it won't allow anything but a custom lid cut around where it attaches] but I've never had a problem with it before. Recently though I ended up with this new third cat [which I didn't want but things happen] and she developed the bad habit of drinking out of the fish tank.
I'm only home a few days during the week [3/4] during the evenings and I was unable to break her of this habit and no one else really tried. I... should have gotten it covered but she never once even looked at the fish so I let it be.
It's my fault and I feel so horrible. He must have gotten too close to her not knowing it might mean his demise. I can't hate her for just being a cat. I can only blame myself.

You had that beauty for almost a year, that is a lot longer than most and I am sure he was in very good hands. I am sorry for your loss and sending you lot's of love.
Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM
I'm sorry for your loss,;( and I don't see how it was your fault cats will be cats, it happens my cat is so lazy then all of a sudden he stares at the fish I know he won't try to get to them because the only thing he he jumps on I the bed!!! And that takes all of his energy so then he naps all day! :p
oh, and he was exceptionally pretty too. I love cats but they do worry me around the fish. Plus the hair floating on the water, yuck. Still,you can't cuddle with the fish but you can cuddle with the fish eaters
