Kitty-proofing failed.....

Well, not failed, exactly, but I guess I missed one. I came home from class/work to find my fridge emptied and food strewn around my house. I have no idea how Havoc managed to get it opened, but all that was left inside was a string cheese and a jar of salsa... And there was a very smug looking kitty with a very round belly on my couch. lol. As close as I can tell from what I picked up, today he ate: Most of two chicken breasts, just the ends of 4 hot dogs, about half a cup of tuna salad, a few bites of cheesecake, all the sauce off of the lambchops I was marinating, but not the lamb itself, some cheese, most of a pint of half-n-half (container was on it's side, but there was only a very small puddle), and probably at least a taste of the chocolate and fudge sauces, salad dressings, and yogurt that were broken open from falling to the floor. Suprisingly all of the egg seemed to still be with the shells that weren't batted around the living room... He's lucky he's so cute.... Lol. Anybody else have a 'fridgerator raider? Or ways to keep him out of it?

Re: Kitty-proofing failed.....

Sam (R.B. kitty) used to open the fridge and raid the cold cuts. I finally put a stop to it by putting a chair against the fridge door.
Sam was a big, amazingly strong kitty, at 20+ pounds, but he didn't move that chair.

Lol, I might try that. SO mentioned putting a hasp on it, but that idea didn't appeal. He's not very big, just under 4 pounds. I can't imagine how he opened it.

Re: Kitty-proofing failed.....

Oh wow...sounds like something Maggie would have done in her younger days. I would find stuff from my kitchen cabinets strewn about, broken into, trash over turned and relocated to various rooms. Good stuff!

I would bet that he didn't actually open a firmly closed fridge on his own, that would be extremely tough for a cat to do. I suspect one of you didn't close it quite right and he just made the best of the situation.

Oh wow ... that is hilarious ... BAD Kitty eating Cheesecake and chocolate !!!

To keep Scooter from the Lizard enclosures, I got one of those Indoor invisible fence systems.. WORKS GREAT !!! Scooter won't go within 5 feet of the enclosures. You can set it for 3 - 10 feet radius. You might try it

Re: Kitty-proofing failed.....

Found out what happened... Our kitchen floor isn't exactly level, and I had a hand towel on the door handle. I was making dinner and Havoc came tearing up the hall, launched himself at the towel, and his momentum made the door pop open. I'm guessing the first time the towel looked like a cool toy, but when he found out he could get all those yummy treats he remembered how he got in. He's too smart for my own good....

Oh, my! The mystery is solved! Now, let's hope kittey doesn't get one heck of a tummy ache! Havoc is a great name for a refrigerator raider.
