Hatter loves, LOVES, eating. If anything that remotely resembles food is left out at all he will eat it. I used to let my buns have free run of my apartment but Hatter has started eating the cat food both dry and moist. I have to put everything up where he can't get it when I let my buns have run time. He's recently taken his obsession for eating one step further.
I was at the computer and realized Hatter wasn't near me. He's always near me during run time. When I found him, he was in the kitty litter box and was eating the cat liter. Now, when I let my buns out he makes a b-line for the kitty box. I have to close off the bathroom so he doesn't go in there. I feel like he would keep eating and eating the litter had I not found him and pulled him out.
Does anyone else have these problems? Do you have any other suggestions besides putting the kitty food up and closing the bathroom? I feel bad about closing the bathroom because then my cats cannot get to their potty.
Would you be willing to put a baby gate in the bathroom doorway? I have a regular baby gate that keeps my rabbits from escaping but my cats easily jump over it, that way they can go back and forth as they please but the two biggest trouble makers in the house (the bunnies) can't If you did this you would have to watch and see if your cats are willing/able to do that, but if you find out that they do then they would always have access to their litter box.
