I Made A Fence Around The Litter Boxes (Writer's Workshop)


When I discovered our dog starting to eat the cat poop, I asked Gerard to bring me a couple big boxes so I could put them around the litter boxes. I was just going to cut a hole for the cats to walk through and have some space inside before getting to the litter box. The boxes were not big enough, so I just cut along the one side so it would open up flat. I proceeded to cut a hole big enough for the cats to walk through and just stood it up like a fence around the litter boxes. To anchor the one above, I just folded one flap under the box and the other flap I put the chair on to hold it. Of course, the cats were watching me the whole time.


I also did it for the box in our upstairs bathroom. For this one, I put one of the short sides between the box and the wall to hold it and then wrapped it around to meet the tub. I used our cat doorstop to hold that end in place. I was happy to see the cats were okay with this and still used the boxes.

Oh this is a great idea! I cannot think of anything better, well done. I think a private toilet is good too.
It is funny how some doggies do this.

Happy Thursday

Popped in from SITS to say hi!

I wonder if I could train my dogs...

Looks like a great solution for all! We've never had that problem with Sadie so just keep the boxes in a large walk in closet with the doors partially closed. Sadie won't push any door open so she stays away from their boxes and their food.

Oh very clever! Good idea, cat boxes are messy things sometimes.

Good idea! Ive caught my dog sneaking a "treat" once or twice. I didnt even think about putting a box over it!! I will be picking up my own box tomorrow.

Perfect solution. I use a baby gate!!!

That was really smart, I think I would have just put the dog outside! =)
