Wow, thanks for the suggestions. The cat can jump I would say about two feet, maybe a bit more. She can get onto the couch. Prince is my smaller chi and is 3.5 pounds. He does not even go up stairs. I have to carry him. I hadn't thought of a very low barrier of no more than two feet at the door of the room the cat box is in. That would at least keep Prince out. My guess is that if Lady really wanted to jump over a small barrier she could although I have not seen her really jump over anything. As far as the cat is concerned, I wonder if she would be willing to jump over something? I hate to disrupt the patterns of my senior cat. She has been through so much with me. I want her to live to 20!

Do any of you think a cover litterbox is a distraction to a chi? They could fit into it but I wonder if they would stay out of it. My two just love the litter box! YUCK!

I know how you feel! I think my golden has hit the litter box a few times!

I have two barriers, one at the bottom of our stairs and one at the door to the room the letterbox is in. I basically use one of those wire linen shelves. Angel and Susie can get over it, but they don't, not Angel anyway.

With my other dogs I used to have I had a round litter box. I think it was called a Booda. The cat goes in the opening, up a small ramp to the opening. It worked, but eventually I moved it to our basement.

Good luck, it's not an easy solution!

Just goes to show that no matter how cute the dog, they are all horrible little monsters underneath! Hopefully being sick like that will have taught him to avoid snacking in the litter box. Ewww! Harley is also partial to cat poo, but he has learnt not to go near litter trays now. interestingly he only ever tried to eat the poo of cats fed on commercial food, our own cat was raw-fed and Harley ignored his poo.
