baby gates

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'd like to keep my cats upstairs when I'm not at home/asleep to prevent them from getting into mishcheif (they're good at that) or escaping as we're coming or going. Do you think if I stack three baby gates in the doorway at the top of the stairs this will hold them, or will crafty kitties find a way downstairs anyway? Right now they have their own room when we're not at home or are sleeping, but I'd like to let them have the whole upstairs.

You do not need 3 gates, one will do. I have a gate on top of the stairs going from first to second floor to keep my cat Marsh permanently upstairs. the gate is 36" and he never jumps/or climbs it, in about 2 years - he knows his home is upstairs, it was like that from day one. it only has vertical bars, they're metal. it's also a walk, through gate you open, which is a huge convenience.

Now, if you cat is older and had the whole house to himself, it may be tough to teach him otherwise LOL - you know cats, if you close any door, it will become their mission in life to get into the closed space.

let me know if you need any more info.
