Gate


Gate, originally uploaded by dawnkua.

Sometimes when you close the door to your room, it can get a little stuffy (even if there are ample windows). So we decided to try a baby gate - this way the cats in one room can look at the cats in the other room without fighting, and so far no one has jumped over the gate. These are the same kind of gates you use to keep from letting babies get out of the room. Here are Meep and Scout checking each other out through the gate.

i tried this once when I adopted my first kitten, to keep her out of our bedroom. She jumped over it within the first two weeks. Good luck to you though!

Thanks for the warning! I must add ours are senior cats so hopefully they're less inclined to jump. As it is, they spend most of the day sleeping!

.....and a low stool to help to get onto the bed to sleep.

To prevent jumping, I was thinking of putting 2 gates...one on top of the other.

Baby safety gate - pressure mounted - could be ordered on-line from www.babytown.com.sg. The gate (width up to 83 cm) shown is $50 with an additional $12 extension. The height is about 80cm if you raise gate 2cm (cat hair not trapped) from floor. There are other baby safety gates available but this is the cheapest.

I tried that before to keep the cats out of the kitchen or in the kitchen when we want to mop the floor or clean the litter-tray or generally tidy up as the cats will just keep running off with the exact thing we need. But my cats jumped over the baby gate so effortlessly although it was 1metre high. Putting a wooden board didn't work as well. Once the cats sussed out that they could leap up, grip the edge of the board and muscle their way up and over, they started playing hurdles.
