I have a 2 bedroom house and I have 4 cats.
My GSD is a cat poo eater.
I dedicated 1 room to the cats, they have 3 litterboxes in there along with their food, toys, cat beds and cat condo.
The door is always left open but I have a gate up so that my dogs can't get in there, the cats just jump over it to get in and out of there.
I also use these litterboxes because my dog can't get his head in there to eat because there is a staircase.

Can't keep him out of the cat litter boxes!
Extra tall pet gate with a small door for the cat to fit through/jump over, that's what helped us￼

But Rocky is not a litter box dog so I got a break there...stupid cats!

The cat box also fits through the door itself but barely. I use the tray to pull the box to the door so I can change the litter. The tray gets scrubbed once a week with the orange natures miracle and odoban. Shasta tried to get in there once, got her head stuck and hasn't tried again since. Dax on the other hand won't give up if he thinks it's a good idea. Luckily, he's not tried testing me on the boundary between the laundry room and the rest of the house yet.

|Jax08||Love the crate idea, Krystal! I have to feed him in a crate to keep the dogs out of his food anyways. This would be ideal!|

In all my life of owning cats and dogs I have never had a dog that is not determined to eat cat poop. I hate litter lips.
What I did is got a heavy duty door closer, it cost about $40. My closet door swings outward and the closer shuts it and it requires a bit of force to open it. I prop the door open with a large can of cat food (a door stop would work just fine too). One of my dogs was able to get her head in enough and push hard enough to open it so I put a book shelf beside the door frame and problem solved. The cats have just enough room to get in but the dogs can't get it open. I have never had the dogs get in there since and I don't have to move anything or open gates to get to my kitty litter.

|Chip18||The clumping litter is not good for them either don't remember the details but it is bad news. So it is a bit more serious then merely disgusting.|
