Default Sometimes you just got to laugh!

So we have a senior cat of 17 years who is not able to jump over a gate, hence the cat box is open access to the dogs when we are home. My husband and I can usually get the cat deposits. Yes, sometimes we don't and one of the dogs gets a feast. Well I caught little 3.5 pound Prince with a huge cat turd today. Next thing I know he is throwing up, he threw up three times. Let me tell you, I have never seen something so disgusting in my life. Looked and smelled like a cat turd mixed with vomit. Luckily most was on the hard wood floors but some on his bed. I now have the bed cover in the sanitize cycle of the washer. All I can say is after owning cats and cleaning up many messes this one rated right up there. On the bright side I have had Lady since May and Prince since October and this is the first dog throw up episode we have had. So I guess this is just part of dog ownership. What would have been really gross would be if Lady ate what Prince threw up....sorry, hope I didn't gross anyone out with this post. I am just laughing at the situation and wishing their was a solution. I thought about the auto litterboxes but dang the pups are quick. They would likely get to cats deposits before the litterbox could clear since the boxes have a delay. If anyone else has a cat box suggestion I would love to hear it (senior cat who can't jump over a barrier).

I have my bathroom door on a hook and eye. Very stiff wire opens the door enough for the cat. I pull the cat box (back near the door) to the opening . Then the cat jumps on top of the litter box (can your cat jump that high?) and into her safe room. She has her bed and food there. The chi's very occasionally will try and scoot by the litter box, but mostly they can't fit. Hope you find a solution soon. I also have a closed litter box.

That is a tough one. If the cat cant jump any higher than the dogs and the dog is small enough to fit in any where that the cat can that is a puzzle. Maybe try something like putting the cat box up on a table with a narrow ramp or narrow steps. With any luck the dogs will be to leary to try and get up there.

Ew! I feel for you! I have to be quick if my dogs throw up because they will try to eat it. Mylo has tried to eat Willow's sick before. Disgusting animals!

Is the cat able to get to the toilet? I saw something onetime where the cat was taught to use a toilet instead of a litterbox. Being older I don't know if that would be an option. But if it were the dogs would have a really hard time getting to it.
