disgusting litter box
recently my dog has tried sneaking away into the basement's TIGHT shut closet to eat the litter

she opens the door herself now and stuffs her face

any idea how to stop this? i have to keep my basement door shut now

Yum! Lol, I have to keep my litter box under a shelf (the cheap pine build-it-yourself kind) and then wedge that right up against the washing machine so there's only enough room for a cat body to squeeze through. Otherwise, it's an open snack bar.

Ours are under the sewing table in the laundry room, one chair in front of each box and the baby gate is up in the laundry room doorway when ever the dogs are in the house.

We have a room that is blocked off. It's hard to describe the room. I guess it suppose to be a small dining room. It does not have doors and one wall is open to the living room. We put a gate up to where a door would go if it had one and blocked off the entrance to the living room. There is a small opening under my desk the cat uses to access the room. Our smaller dog uses it too, but the GSD and the older dog can' t get in there. The smallest dog only eats the leftover cat food.

The gate we have has a smaller door at the bottom that can be left open for a cat, but my cat doesn't "get it" and the GSD shoves his head through it, so I just keep it closed.

We got a gate at PetSmart that has a small little cat door. We have the gate up blocking our spare bedroom off so just the cat can go in. We keep her litter and food in there.

do you guys have any pictures of your set up?

My kitty litters are in the mudroom and the door is always shut to it but my partner cut a cat flap into the door so they come and go as needed. We also have one in an upstairs bathroom because the upstairs is baby-gated-with-cat-hole at all times so the cats can use the upstairs box if they don't want to go downstairs past the dog.

I had bought this gate Top Paw™ Extra-Wide Metal Walk Through Pet Gate for my puppy/cat. My puppy could get through the cat door when I first got him, but he couldn't now. Sadly my cat passed so I no longer use it other than to keep my puppy in the room with me while I am working. I LOVED the gated option so that you weren't constantly having to take down the gate/put up the gate.

Lol Sookie licks the insides of my crazy-kitten Oliver's ears. He tolerates it for quite awhile then walks away fur rippling. I'm going to try to post a pic of the upstairs set up.
Does it not allow photos uploaded from an ipad? It let's me click to upload but then doesn't actually do it.
