Hey everyone, I was wondering if you guys have any ideas on what I could do to make sure my tank & and my Luigi are safe from harm & stress.
Luigi will be moving into my apartment soon. He's been staying at my mom's (just down the road) for the winter, and now that the weather is warming up, and the roads are slippery with snow or slush, I've deemed it 'safe to travel'.
I've noticed on the last time I was house sitting, Tink (the cat) has found it rather "fun" to get on top of his enclosure and watch. Because of this she's already made me get a new bulb, and almost killed my ballast system.
Here's a pic of the current layout at 'casa mom'
The tank is sitting on a fishtank stand, and has two 6 inch ledges on both sides (I've used for holding his things i use every day, like his mister, etc). Unfortunately, Tink has also found that she can use that as a step up for her herp watching hobby. You may have noticed that we've made a makeshift curtain for him at nighttime; it seems to deter Tink the Explorer from too much interest.
Thankfully all cords are hidden at the back, and she can't touch the central hub of gear because of the stand's door. (yup, she's also a wire chewer...)
If you guys have any ideas at all.. they would really be appreciated! I don't want to stress out my gecko.
Edit - I'm starting to wonder about these "scat mat" products about... she's not deterred by a water spritzer any more
