    Sounds like the cat may be too big to be ducking under the gate, this works with one of mine but she's only 2.5kilos or so. Cody picked up the cat flap idea fairly quickly too from watching the cats which is just as well because we have them in several of our internal door also

    Another option is to put the litterbox on a table top out of the dogs reach.
    One of my cats had great difficulty getting to grips with jumping the gate because the gate was to thin for him to balance on top of, it took almost 2 weeks until he was managing it ! This is the same cat who has no problem clearing a 7ft fence in the garden when he gets the chance or escaping out of the skylights upstairs

    Another suggestion might be, there is this stuff called Forbid... You put it in your cat's food, it is tasteless to the cat and it makes the poo taste terrible for dogs.

    Here is the website
    www.revivalanimal.com
    and go to Dogs, on the left side of the screen. Then to Health Suppies for Dogs. And it is on the very first page of that section. It's called Forbid, and it breaks dogs and puppies from eating stools. It is about 12$
    Thanks-

    Thank you so much! That looks like it will work!

    Now there's another great idea as well! The cat is very fat, but I think if he can fit under my bed everyday, he could get through that!

    I did have to laugh as he looked like he had a large cigar hanging out his mouth....
    Those are FIRM cat poops!! Leo looks like he has a cigar when he has those pizzle sticks; he always walks around with it half hanging out of his mouth.

    Default We have a solution!!!!!!

    We have a company coming out Saturday called "Invisible Fence". I don't know if anyone outside of the US is familiar with it. We aren't allowed fences in our neightborhood, so this is a wire underground that sends some kind of zap to the dog if they try to get out of the yard. It sounded inhumane to me, but my neighbors all swear by it. We've had too many problems with Isabelle escaping and keeping her stuck on her chain and not able to roam feels more inhumane to me than the fence.
    Well they can rig the inside of your house too, so they are going to set up a boundary for the furnace room, so hopefully one or two time trying to get in there, she'll learn. I woke up to cat poop and litter all over my living room floor last night. Isabelle must have been sleepwalking in the middle of the night for a midnight snack.
