I have a friend who has a cat and the fish loves her cat and her cat loves the fish! It's enrichment for them both. They watch each other and play "follow my paw" (fyi, get a glass tank! It wont show scratches
). It's all so cute. She puts a book or something on the hood so Scarlet can't get in. I'm sure someone here has a more perminant alternative than that (maybe using sealent to add a door latch?), but her way works for her.
I remember when she moved the tank and Scarlet couldn't get to it. She pouted and the fish did too! She ended up going out and getting a kitty perch and putting it beside the tank and all was well with the world. You would have thought that she brought them food by how happy they got!
