If you are a cat owner with a new baby, you may be wondering “how do I keep my baby out of the cat’s litter box?” You most likely have done all of your research and know about the dangers of toxoplasmosis during pregnancy as well as its effect on your infant or toddler.
Not only is the cat’s litter box a breeding ground for bacteria (even more so when your cat is allowed to go outside), but they can also carry worms that could be consumed by your baby when they slip away and get up to mischief in the litter box. Not to mention the choking hazard that the dry cat food possesses.
Therefore baby proofing your cat’s litter box and successfully keeping your new crawler out is very important. However, with so many baby proofing products on the market these days, where does one start. What works? What doesn’t work? Is it convenient for me? Is it comfortable for my cat?
Baby gates work well and are a necessity for certain areas like stairs or rooms with no doors. However, baby gates can get very costly and some are not user-friendly.
There are even cat breeds that have trouble jumping over gates. Some cats may see it as too much of an obstacle especially if they are ill, injured, or getting older. This could cause litter box problems and result in your cat using the carpet instead.
If you have a fussy cat that is set in his ways, then a covered litter box or a top entry litter box may not work either. Cats need the visual advantage to be able to see when there are possible intruders. They are not likely to enter a covered litter box especially if there is a baby or dog sneaking around trying to poke their head in.
HOW TO KEEP THE BABY OUT OF THE LITTER BOX:
It seems one of the easiest, most cost-efficient, and yet effective ways to baby proof the cat’s litter box is with a door latch. The Door Buddy is an adjustable door strap that holds the door open wide enough for your cat to easily enter but narrow enough so babies and even dogs are blocked out.
Door Buddy allows your cat to go about his/her natural routine, thus preventing any unforeseen problems and allowing you to create a cat-friendly environment. As well as keeping your little one safe from the dangers lurking in the kitty litter.
Door Buddy has several very unique advantages over other methods used to baby proof the litter box room. It installs in seconds and no tools are needed. Having an adjustable strap allows you to set the perfect width of the door opening to fit your specific needs (e.g. blocking baby, blocking dog, and allowing for airflow). Lastly, Door Buddy has a simple locking latch system that allows adults easy access into the room and can even be used from both sides of the door.
Door Buddy gives you peace of mind and allows you to savor those special memories with your new baby and special feline. No more having to worry about the cat's litter box! Made proudly right here in the USA, Door Buddy comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee.
