What do you do with your cats when you're decorating? I'm thinking of painting my doors and bannister in a couple of weeks as they need a touch up. The problem is the cats. I suspect that paint and cats won't be a good combination :biggrin5: but what should I do with them? The paint will take at least 24 hours to dry and I have an open plan living room with the bannister in it, meaning I would have to keep them outta the living and either: a) stick them in one bedroom all day - but I don't feel that would be good for them b) stick them in the kitchen where they would also have access to the run we are in. c) plop them over to my mum's who only lives on the same street as me. For this to work I would have to start taking them over to get used to my mum's before hand. Which of these sounds like the better option? Or is there an option I haven't thought of?
