Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My parents have decided to get a kitten. They will get one on Saturday (supposedly).
I've been trying to compile as much kitten knowledge as possible, by googling and looking over other kitten threads on the forum. In addition to the regular questions (what things should I buy, what should I feed it, how to prepare my apartment for it, etc), I have other questions.
Firstly, I have some pets that might be in danger. I have two gerbils living in an aquarium topped with a tank topper, like so:
The tank topper is somewhat heavy, though I think that if a cat really wanted to get in there, it could. How much of a danger does a kitty pose to my gerbils? And what steps can I go through to prevent possible hunting?
I also have a 30 gallon aquarium. It's elevated on a stand, however, again if a kitty really wanted to get up there, it potentially could. The tank has a lid, but it's easily openable and has some holes in it, for the filter, heater, etc. How much danger are my fish in and what can I do to prevent possible hunting?
Secondly we live on the 37th floor. We also have a balcony. Is this dangerous for a cat? Could a cat be silly enough to fall out of a window or off a balcony?
