One of my favorite products I picked up at BlogPaws is the Door Buddy, invented by Shanelle and Scott Johnson, one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet. I had the pleasure of meeting the Johnsons in person at the conference and was struck with the ingenuity and simplicity of their invention, the Door Buddy. The idea came to them one day after Shanelle caught their 9-month-old daughter in the laundry room, playing in the cat’s food and water bowl, and headed straight for the litter box! Yikes! Simply put, the Door Buddy allows you to keep any door ajar wide enough for the cat to squeeze through and narrow enough to keep the baby and other pets out. Parents, say goodbye to expensive, clunky, in-the-way baby gates and say hello to your new best friend, the Door Buddy. Not only is it priced at less than $15, but it comes in a bunch of cute colors!
Since my husband and I don’t have any kids of the non-fur variety, I have been recommending the Door Buddy to all my friends with infants and toddlers. I can think of so many instances where it could come in handy, too. Maybe you keep your cat’s litter box in the basement, but you don’t want your child or dog to be able to get down there. Or maybe you need to keep a door ajar to create a cross breeze, but you don’t want your pet or child to be able to get into that room. Or maybe your child is old enough to start opening doors and you just need a quick fix to make sure she can’t get in a specific room (or suddenly find herself outside).
The Johnsons are also in the business of giving back. They donate $1.00 for every Door Buddy purchased on their website to Pet Partners, an organization in Bellevue, WA, that provides animal-assisted interactions to veterans with PTSD, seniors living with Alzheimer’s, patients in recovery or nearing the end of life, and children with literacy challenges and disabilities. What a wonderful organization to support!
