I currently live in a very old building. And when I say old, I mean OLD. It is an awesome place that is really large and has a lot of “character” but there are some not-so-great things about it. One of the worst is that there are no doors separating the rooms (except the bathroom, thankfully). This has not really been a problem in the past, but now that I have four cats who HATE each other, it is sometimes necessary to separate them.
I thought it would be easy to just go get a door somewhere, but apparently that is next to impossible with a funny shaped door frame from the 1800s. So here is what I have devised as a solution:
It is two baby gates on top of each other, the top one being upside down (this is so the bar doesn’t hit me in the tummy all the time). It is the most hideous thing in the world, but it appears to be working so far. The reason for the blankets and bubble wrap is that Hermione got stuck in the bars after it was up for only 10 minutes. I worked really hard to make the bottom gate look nice (rock on, Miss Shortcake!!) but by the time I got to the top one I was feeling pretty lazy.
So, now that you know the story, here is a video of what happened the other day when Addie and Hermione were in the bedroom being punished for attacking poor Pippi and Penelope.
That was my first attempt at iMovie since library school, so I need a lot more practice, but I think it turned out okay-ish.
