(Almost) Wordless Wednesday with the Jailbird


Sometimes, when you eat the kitties' new food while they're trying to review it, 
you end up behind bars.

Don't worry, though, freedom is always on the horizon.





***
Our Tip of the Day:
Baby gates can be your best friend not only when it comes to human children, but also the furry kind. You can use baby gates to block dogs from cat food, to keep furbabies out of potentially dangerous areas of the house, to keep them from reaching the front door and escaping, for safe meet-and-greets between resident and new furbabies, and for any other times you need to keep a pup or kitty safe and sequestered. That being said, always be sure to pick safe, secure, and pet-friendly baby gates. Try to avoid baby gates through which a cat or small dog can fit, or get themselves stuck in such an attempt. Also make sure it is of a sufficient height for your target furbaby, so that tall pups or athletic dogs and cats are not able to make it over the gate. Also consider that some furbabies are climbers when selecting a gate design. And of course always consider the type of mechanisms and closures the gate contains, so that you choose one that will not pinch your furbaby, in which they cannot easily get themselves or any limbs caught, or in other way injure them. It never hurts to take yourself into consideration either! For your own ease, and to avoid potential injury from trying to hurdle over gates, you can consider gates with doors through which you can pass, as long as your furbaby is not at risk of getting caught in the door or escaping through to danger.

  6. Oh, Astrid, do you need bail money? I hope you get out soon! :-)

    We have used baby gates keeping new cats confined but open to seeing the other members of the household. It didn't work with Abbey--she was so small, she could walk right through the spaces.

  10. Ruby always tries to eat the cat's food. We use baby gates and also now feed them up high so she can't get to the food. One time she even managed to break into the cabinet where the cat food is kept and have herself quite a feast.
