    I agree that chlorine remover is never a waste of money and having Prime on hand in the case of some ammonia emergency or the need to do an unexpected rapid water change is handy.
    I do think that the OP is just as concerned about the temperature though as it seems that even the cold tap water is coming out of the tap too hot for the tank, so letting it cool in a tub is a necessary evil.

    If you could see what kind of dechlorinators/conditioners they have on the shelves here you would understand. Thers is no prime, etc for that kind of thing. But that not the main issue, my main issue is the temperature. In the peak of summer at 45degrees there is no such thing as cold water, in fact the cold water tap runs hot enough that we dont use a water heater. So the need to rest the water is essential.
    So like i said, my method works but just need to think about the cat.
    Fiiiiiiiiiiissssshhhhhh!

    Couple of options to cover the tub - could weight either down with a brick or even bunge cord it on:


    Pegboard - has little holes all over. Would allow for chlorine to evaporate, keep kitten safe.

    Wooden garden lattice - kitten can see in, but not fall in.

    They come in various sizes and are inexpensive (especially the pegboard).
    75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Silvertip & Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Pearl Gourami, Black Kuhli Loaches, Whiptail Cats, Wild Caught BNP
    Dual 29 gals - Diamond Tetras. Harlequin Rasboras, Bloodfin Tetras
    10 Gal - Mr. Betta's Fishy Paradise

    I would make a cover for the tank out of hardware cloth. Its a real heavy mesh screen with 1/4 or 1/2 inch mesh spacing. It does have rather sharp edges though. It's rigid enough to be able to support a cat's weight. Just google "hardware cloth" and you'll get several pictures of it.

    Thanks for all the help. I have decided that i will cut off the majority of the cover of the tub, leaving just a ring and will cover the hole with fly guard. This way i can allow gas and heat to escape and prevent my kitty from drowning.
    Fiiiiiiiiiiissssshhhhhh!
