Re: Cats and Vivs

The cat seems to have learned its lesson and hasn't been found on top of the viv again. I also picked up a Zilla fresh air screen top as a second top and I'm looking into opaque materials with which to cover most of the top as a sight blocker.

That's great! Our cat didn't learn until the mouse finally died of old age.

Re: Cats and Vivs

You'll never keep cats off. They'll eventually be back and unless you can watch them 24/7 they'll learn when you aren't looking they can get away with it. My screen is backed by hardware cloth after one of mine sagged into a bull snake enclosure until the edge ripped away a little. My husband was yelling at me to come get my female bull who was just sunning in front of the window on the insect culture bins. If you don't need that area of screen anyway some plexi will fix that problem (make sure it has enough support for the surface area) or waterproofed wood if you don't view it from that angle. Otherwise tougher mesh and double layering works. It's just either harder to find or more annoying to install and clean depending which you attempt.
