Guess what I did today?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I bought myself a little 5 gal. fish aquarium! I'm putting 3 fan fin tetra's and 6 neons in it. They should keep the kitties entertained! I'll take pictures of it when I get it all settled. I got pastel colored gravel (pink, blue, yellow & green) and pastel pearlized plants to go in it. And a "broken jar" that is kind of pastel colors too. It's pretty cool! When I lived in Michigan I had a 150 gal salt water marine tank. Loved it! But I sold it because I figured it wouldn't travel well.

Your baby's are going to love it . I sure cant wait to see when you got it all set up and working and also to hear how your kitties react
I had a 100 gal fish tank with fresh water fish before and all my cats loved it very much . We brought it from germany over here . But about 2 years ago it started leaking and after 3 repairs with no succes we endet up and through it out . I still miss my aquarium very much . But we have talked about getting one again , but this time with salt water fish .

I agree! I'm betting Hallie finds it next! I'm going to move it to a large antique trunk under the living room window sometime. That way the kitties will have more room to sit on the trunk and watch!

I have a fishtank, too, with one goldfish. When we first got Lily, she was a little interested in whatever that was moving in there, but she just ignores it now. Princess was never that interested in it either. When I had a little bowl, I would put it on the floor in front of Princess, and Princess would kind of watch it for a minute and then get bored. I don't think she realized that it was potential food. Either that, or she just didn't want to go through the bother of getting her paws wet!

Enjoy your fishies!

Hey that's great Tamme I know your crew will love watching the fisheys. My boys love to watch my tank but the one thing with mine is I have Cichlids and one is really aggressive when you get close to the glass.

Oscar gets a kick out of making him charge at the glass Oscar is so bad

Hallie and Jake loved the fish tank here. For some reason they loved drinking from it more than chasing or watching the fish.

They can't drink from it here! It has two tops on it. The inner one is a clear plastic one and then the outer hood with the light. So I tricked them!

Jake keeps trying to jump up there to see the fish but he's too big. Jake is just over 12 lbs now (He was 9 something when he first came here). I hope I'm not feeding him TOO well! Actually he's perfect. He looks a lot bigger because of all his fur. It's kind of strange because he doesn't look like he got fatter, he looks like he actually grew. Is he still growing age? I am going to move the tank when I rearrange my living room so they can watch it easier.

Hallie plays with everything including swatting at the fish from outside the tank. Yep! She found them. She is a little holy terror sometimes and teases the two shy cats. It's hillarious. I love to watch her chase Carmella and then pounce on her back.

Ok... got off my own topic here! Sorry folks!

Oh that is just too cute! Haha! That should keep all of them entertained. Until they try to figure out just how to get those fishys out of there.
