Our litterboxes are in our laundry room, access by a cat flap in the door. Our dogs are both large so they’re way too big to fit through the cat flap…but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t like to try. On the rare occasion when we’ve accidentally left the laundry door open, Tiki and Irie have swept into the room and cleaned out the litterbox, snacking on everything that could find. No more doggie kisses that day!
The cat flap works great for keeping the dogs out of the litterbox, but we know that not everyone’s able to install a cat flap! It involved taking down the door and cutting a hole into the door. Fortunately, John’s a carpenter so I’m spoiled to being able to ask him to do projects like cat doors (and catios) but not everyone has the tools or the skills to install a cat door. And, if you’re renting or you think you might want to put your home on the market anytime soon, you very well might not be in the position to cut a hole in an interior door!
If you need an easy, inexpensive way to keep dogs or larger pets out of one room of your house but still provide access for your cats, check out the Peek a Boo latch from Woof Woof Castle. This latch attaches to your door in one of three ways: (1) with screws and a plastic mount, (2) with adhesive stickers and a plastic mount or (3) a combination of both methods. The latch comes with a CD with instructions (although installation is very simple.) Much like a longer version of a screen door hook and eye, the latch is easy to install and opens the door just enough for your cat to access the room–but not your dog!
One lucky CatTipper reader will win a Peek a Boo latch!
