Ginny and Moira have a habit. A nasty habit. A habit that, when I really think about it, makes me wretch. They like to clean the cat box. Not having opposable thumbs, well, I can't even type it..... So tonight I finally got my act together and set up a cat-permeable barrier to the room where the cat box resides.
I went to Babies R Us (torture for some of us) and purchased a baby gate. I brought it home and installed it in the doorway to the laundry room. Then I cut out a cat-sized opening in the gate. Five minutes later, Grace wandered into the kitchen and sauntered through the hole in the gate like it had always been there. The gate is only 2 feet tall so UHM can step over it with just a little effort and now I can be the one to clean the cat box - in a sanitary manner.
