oh no! As much as it is hard to tell exactly what happened, I think your cat is dead. Sad, to say the least. good for the snake though.

iam surprised the snake lived, thats good........ Why did an arguement start from such a simple question? In all honesty I wondered to myself how a common house cat knocked a tank over.. And asking if the cat was an ocelot was just a joke, dont be so sensitive. Geez!!

By the way, I have a curious rottweiller that weighs well over 100 lbs and hes never done any damage to my tanks, so i can see where the question came from. I really dont think there was any insulting implication there.. But anyways, good luck with the snake.

I'm just glad my cat is cool. She's a major killer of rabbits/bunnies, rats, lizards, snakes and birds in the wild. But she is a total sweetheart in the house and "respects" everything in it. She even just walks by the snake cages. All she does is take a sniff and then scratches her sides against it because it feels good to her, lol.

Why do you think the cat is dead? I'm not sure I follow, as far as I can tell from the post nothing happened to the cat.

Well I remember coming home after shopping with Tim and my mother in law and wondering to myself "Where's Jones?"(tim's cat) So I went in our bedroom and there he was in my 33 gallon tank with my two leos! I screamed like someone had attacked me, Tim rushed in, and I told him to take his stupid f*****g cat out of the room cause if I put my hands on him it would be around his throat and at the time I was pretty certain that I would have done just that. I left the room while Tim's mom hugged me and said it would be okay and Tim came out laughing. I got real mad at him cause (and I said)"You think this is funny? You're f*****g cat killed my babies!" and he kept laughing and told me it was okay but that I had to go see for myself. So I go in the room and take a very close look at my babies (counting all toes, limbs and such) and then I burst out laughing too! My "sweetie-pie" Fatty Tail (she has a regen) has the hugest mass of cat hair in her mouth. That'll teach the stupid cat (never learned his lesson-r.i.p house geckos) to mess with my girl! Took a while to swab out all the hair and I had to empty all the new substrate cause of all the loose kitty hair, but I sure was glad that my girl was okay.

No it was not Jeff's intention to make Emily feel any worse than she does. It was Jeff's intention (as always) to get people to think about things, perhaps in a different way than they were previous.

An aquarium is a rectangular object, that, unless standing on end, is not an easy thing to tip. Even empty, they can't be tipped all that easy. I am certain, that for my size, I could not tip a rectangular object of similar ratio that that cat did. So what does that tell me? It tells me that the tank was placed in a place that's quite dangerous. I know Emily knows this now (obvious), but what about other people? It seems like over 70% of the people here have cats. I know it sucks for Emily, but what about her snake? Does life not suck a bit more for that corn now than her? I think it does. So if people don't make the mistake that Emily made because they think about things, then is that not good?

I think it is.

Tim/Julie, how did your cat catch a house gecko?? Those things are nuclear fast!! I had one loose in my reptile room about 10 years ago, and I could never catch it. I never did find it either. But every day we had a little game where I would turn out the lights at night, wait 15 minutes, and then race back into the room and chase him/her for about 10 minutes. And all I ever caught was air!! LOL!! And now I work with snakes.

Jeff, you probably couldn't jump onto a fence of relative height, though.

if the tank was on a desk or table it could easily be pushed off.

if i were you emily i would go for a wooden or plastic vivarium, next time, to be on the safe side.....and maybe put rubber grips on the bottom so it wont move??

The crazy cat managed to rip a hole in the screen top of our huge hexagon display tank, and I suppose he sat patiently waiting for the gecko to pop out the hole, although I'm fairly certain he had to hunt it down cause he was in another room when we found him with the gecko. The funny thing is that it's the only cage he tries to break into. I'm not sure what the fasination is with it, but my cat could care less about all the other four legged critters, Tim's cat on the other hand.............good thing he's cute!

Ha ha Zoe, no I probably couldn't. Those suckers can jump man!

Emily, if you can make your cat attack people, I'd keep it. That's pretty damn cool!!

Tim/Julie, I guess it was just like shooting fish in a barrel then?

My cat just loves my snakes, the cat was born at my house so he's been around snakes ever since he could walk. He grew up with my one ball python, and the cat will just lay on my bed and let the snake sit on top of him. He just lays there and purrs away. But i'm always there and the cat is not aloud in the room unless i'm in there.Cause i know that any cat can change his mind at how he wants to act in a heartbeat.
