My cat ate my fish!

Grr!!! I am so mad at my cat right now! I came down to my room this afternoon after being gone for a few hours and I find Koi missing! He didn't jump he has a lid. Its a rectangular tank. She must have stuck her foot in the filter hole and got him. I am so sad and mad! Koi was my favorite. Now I want to move another guy into his tank but am scared my girl will get him to! Any suggestions?

Clean out the tank and look for him. If you can't find him then cov the hole with something such as a sponge and out a new Betta in there

Trust me he is not in there. I poked around with a chopstick, moved his bridge pushed plants around etc. Unfortunatly he is gone. Kinzoku will be moving in sometime soon. Probably after we move and I figure out a good safe place for the tank. I am just shocked my cat did this. I have had fish for 2 years. And even 1 tank she could push the lid off and she never bothered him.

I found him. He blended right into the gravel. I think the intake filter got him. I will not use this filter anymore!

Did you look around on the ground just in case? If there is a hole big enough for a cat to reach in and pull out the fish, then he could have jumped out of it. It is also possible that he did jump out and the cat found him before you did. Regardless of how it happened, I'm very sorry for your loss.

I use canvas craft mesh, cut it to size, and strong tap to attach it to the lid. Works good for covering any openings.

Edit - Sorry, just saw that you found him

No he was dead. DX my poor boy. The hole is where the filter is. So I don't think he could have jumped, but a cat could reach her paw in there. I will never buy these filters again. It wasn't even necessary cause its a NPT tank, but koi seemed depressed and sluggish while it was off so I turned it on and he perked right up.
