Lightbulb quick cat-proofing for aquariums

Before bringing home our new cat my husband and I wanted to make sure that Gilgamesh did not suffer any harm. We looked at relocating the tank but none of the available places were feasible.

Here is the solution that has worked for us. I took jewelry wire and attached a hook to one end. I bent the other end into a loop and made sure that the length fit securely around the aquarium. The hook allows me to open the tank easily for feeding Gilgamesh.

So far it has worked great so I thought I would share. We have even set up the recliner next to the tank to be a lounge for our cat, Leonidas, so he and Gilgamesh can safely observe each other. They both seem to find the other guy pretty interesting.Name:  20120715_13.jpg

Double stick tape if your cat gets to attached to taking naps on top of the tank like my Egyptian ( A.K.A Gyptsy) they don't like the dealing on their paws ( also great for keeping them from clawing up your furniture!)

Great idea! I'll keep that in mind if Leonidas starts trying to nap on it. :)

This is epic I should try this out!! I currently didn't have a top on my tank so I have craft mesh over top, too bad the wild jungle cat (*cough* thinks she is *cough* ) loves the fishy. Do you think it'll work if I loop the wire thru the mesh?
Adorable cat! <3 by the way.
