Relocating the Litter Boxes

When mom was off work on Monday, she decided to take down the cardboard fences around our litter boxes and relocate them.  One is on a low shelf farther away from my eating desk; the other one is still in the upstairs bathroom but in the tub that is never used.  She got that idea from Daisy, the Curly cat's mom.

Gerard thought the cardboard was up for months but actually it's been up for YEARS.  Mom first put the cardboard fences up in 2009 to keep Abby (the dog) from eating our poop.  She thinks the dog won't be able to get to the one in the tub, but the other one is open in plain sight and low.

She must think Abby won't come upstairs but once in a while she does.  Mom may have to close the door to that room when she's gone to make sure the dog doesn't come in.  I must admit, the rooms look better with the fences gone.   I think Gerard will be happy about that.

We would love to know how other cats keep their dogs from eating the cat poop.

Oh, we have this problem when Sammy the Weiner Dog comes over. We have to block access to the room where the litter box is. We'll put a milk crate or something in the doorway (it is a sliding door there) and the cats can just jump over, but it stops the dog. It's a pain in the neck, but he is usually only here for a week, so we manage.

I like the bathtub idea.

I hope the dog here doesn't eat ours! We have done nothing to protect it.

Our angel sisfurs Sadie and KC never ate our poop and actually of all the dogs mommy has had, none has ever eaten kitty poop so we find that just odd. Why would they eat litter covered poop? It doesn't make sense to us.
