Unhappy My beautiful boy... eaten by cat :(

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.


[Owned 9/10/2011 - 9/22/2012]

All the other fish for the tank are accounted for. I'm getting it covered today hopefully.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a Betta to jumping. I waited a few months added lids and still miss her.

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
