Our little ones will soon be mobile and it's time to contemplate babyproofing our homes. We live in an appartment and have got two cats. Each cat has its own cat litter box - one in the living room and one in a corner of the hallway/dining room (it's a central room with doors leading off to nearly every other room in the appartment). Even though I've got a "doormat" for each litter box, cat litter still happens. I'm worried about ds picking up stray litter and eating it. Or crawling into one of the litter boxes. Or just grabbing a handful out of a litterbox.
So I'm thinking of fencing off the living room so that ds stays there to play - he'd be underfoot everywhere else anyways. Then I'm thinking of putting the litter box in the living room up on a shelf right next right where it is next to the window ledge - basically extending that ledge to the corner where the litter box already is - and then maybe create a kind of litter box in a box to minimize the amount of litter that still escapes.
What about you other cat owners with little ones or big ones that survived this age with cats. How do you babyproof your litter boxes?
