    How do you do it? Two off or cats are fine.. They are honestly too fat to even try.

    We brought a stay kitten inside in September and he recently realized there are creatures he can try to play with in one of my tanks.

    He keeps jumping on the top. I'm worried either the glass will eventually give or he'll push it off center when jumping off. I'm sure he's on it constantly when I'm at work.

    The tank is currently on a longer side table. I don't really have anywhere else to put it. Would putting it in the centre of the table instead of the far right help?

    It should I just cave and find a proper stand for it? Hubby won't approve.

    Yeah, I have the same problem. One cat that is oblivious to the frogs and the other, an 8 month old, is obsessed. Many cats don’t like walking on aluminum foil, so you could try putting a sheet of that across the top. Even if your cat would still get up there, if the foil was secured, he wouldn’t be able to see anything, so might lose interest. Good luck!

    You could build a case for the tanks

    He only gets on the one tank right now. I don't think my husband or I are handy enough to build anything too complicated ( don't tell him I said that)

    How large is the tank? I had a 18 exo cube that i just built a basic cover for to hide lights. if you went to Home Depot they would even cut the wood for you

    It's 18 by 32

    He's seems to have given up on it for now. I added a dome light on top with the strip light since it was too dark.

    I'm ight look into making a good eventually though. That's a great idea.
