It’s been a struggle keeping the kitties out of the crib since it went up. Especially since we purchased an awesome cowboy themed Dwell bedding (what can I say? they have good taste!). Now that the bedding is on, it’s nearly impossible to convince them that this is not their own personal cat bed.

Has anyone else out there had issues with keeping pets and baby separate? I love the idea of the kiddo growing up with pets – I did, and I think it makes you a more compassionate, loving person. And unless there are some serious allergy issues with baby we won’t be giving our two little guys up. So what’s the solution?

We haven’t purchased a baby monitor – our condo isn’t huge, so I don’t think hearing him cry out will be a big issue – so I don’t really want to have to close the door to his bedroom every night. I take out the kitties right after they get in and spray them with a squirt bottle, but it hasn’t really prevented them from getting into it in the first place! Help!
