Cats and dogs. They can get along so well . . . or not. Even if they do get along, when cats and dogs live in the same household, the human members of the family may still have one problem caused by the combination of two species in their home: dogs like to eat what cats leave in litter boxes.

With the proper training, dogs and cats are great around children. But throw food and water into the mix, and you might have problems. House pets can act differently when tiny hands reach for the kibble (food aggression is real). And then there’s the issue of animal waste and preventing your child from going on an archeological adventure in the litter box.

April 23, 2018 •  Door Buddy! Protects your cat's litter box and food from trespassers!

Door Buddy is an adjustable door strap that protects your cat’s litter box and food from trespassers – specifically toddlers and dogs! Your dog thinks that a litter box is where yummy “brown treats” magically spawn and wait for him or her to eat. Your toddler thinks that a litter box and cat food is his or her personal playground, ready to be dug into. Your cat thinks that this invasion of privacy is intolerable and goes to find another place to drop those “brown treats” in. You think this is what descent into madness probably looks like.

Dogs, and babies and cats – Oh my! While the cat’s litter box is probably not one of your favorite places to hang out –  for some reason, it’s THE place to be if you’re a dog or a small child. That’s because what we see, isn’t exactly what your dog or your child sees, when looking at your cat’s litter box!

Amy Shojai on How to stop dog from eating cat poop


Oct 26, 2016  Doggy kisses are no fun after your pup has just raided your cat's litter box for a snack.

At first, to keep the dogs out, we used a combination of door stops and braces. I put a brick or other heavy object on the inside of a door to make it difficult to open. That meant every time humans left the bathroom, we had to perform an awkward combination of reaching around the door while pulling the brick toward us and simultaneously closing the door just the right amount so that a cat could fit in but a dog could not. It was not a practical or sustainable solution.

October 27, 2016  Finally, a Solution to Keeping Dogs Out of the Litter Box: The Door Buddy

Experts say you should have one more litter box than you have cats. Since we have four cats, there are five litter boxes in our home, all of which are in rooms with closable doors. The cats can chose to do their business in bathrooms or our finished basement. There’s also a box in my son Aaron’s room, where Dawn spends most of her time.

In an effort to curtail my persistence of wanting to sample kitty litter treasures, my humans tired blocking the door entrance to the kitty litter room, but then the cat’s couldn’t always gain access. Then they installed a gate with a door, but since slimming down I can now easily slide thru the door in the gate! Just a note to those doggies that need to loose weight, there are so many advantages to getting trim! Then this happened – the Door Buddy.

April 21, 2016  Dogs Eating Poop? Stop Litter Box Grazing With The Door Buddy

The Door Buddy is a management tool that helps you control access to the cat’s litter box and/or food bowl–or kitty’s favorite room. Essentially, it’s a peel-and-stick low-tech and economical solution that installs in minutes. The adjustable strap allows you to determine the size of the door opening, so that your smaller cat can come and go (and eat or eliminate in peace) while preventing larger animals–including babies and toddlers!–from entering the area.
