You two are funny!
The beds are normally on a human bed in the spare bedroom, but that room is occupied with a guest for a while.  Apparently the beds aren't favorites, once relocated.

I thought I remembered you had one but didn't know if she was still there.  Wondered if that was a sneaky way of telling us Misa was there in her own private room pending introductions, but I see now she wasn't there yet, then.

Diva looks adorable carefully reaching out to touch you, Brandon.

Good luck!  Our Angel Lucky had that talent.  If you have easy to operate sink handles... they will be next.   Silly7

Help! Izzi has discovered how to operate lever door handles!!!

I did a quick search and found two options here:  https://parent.guide/baby-proof-internal-doors/  Feel free to search for other options, or just check out your local hardware store:

Quote
Lever handle door locks
Did the original builder of your house decide to use lever door handles? These handles are incredibly easy for an infant to open as they can be pulled down by bodyweight alone. Fortunately, there is a baby proof cover and lock designed just for lever handles.

Baby-proof lever handle covers work in a similar fashion to the ones above. The cover fits over the door handle and can be secured with adhesive tape. If you require a sturdier solution, screws are also included to fix the cover to the door. Be mindful that this will leave holes when the time comes that baby proofing is no longer required.

Lever Handle Lock
Styles: As pictured
Brand: KidCo

Pinch to open
Easy to install.
Fits standard lever knobs.
Difficult for baby to figure out.

The Door Monkey
The second product is known as the Door Monkey. Named after the “monkey tail” that holds your door in place by securing it to the door frame. The Door Monkey does not completely seal the door. Instead, it leaves a small gap, allowing air to circulate between rooms.

The Door monkey can handle approximately 40 to 50 lbs (18 – 22 kg) before it becomes loose or breaks. Unless your toddler is the incredible hulk, he should be unable to generate enough force to break this.

Door Lock and Pinch Guard
Styles: As pictured
Brand: Door Monkey

Works on any handle type.
Installs in seconds.
Doubles as a pinch guard.
Adjustable mount height.

Basically, think "baby-proofing" when the cats figure out how to do stuff, or better yet, BEFORE they figure out how to do stuff.  I baby-proofed the cabinets under my kitchen sink where I stored my drain cleaner, etc., because my two furkids sometimes tried to paw the doors open.  I also had to "baby-proof" my refrigerator and it's freezer after I came home from work one day to see the freezer door (above the fridge) wide open.   :o  I suspect one (or both) had been climbing to the top to reach a plant I had up there and somehow managed to push the door open in the process.

Depending on the kind of knobs your stove/oven has, you may want to baby-proof them, too.  You just never know . . .

Good info!  We replaced our stove/oven many years ago.  At the time, it was very difficult to find one that wasn't all push electronic buttons.  We looked at a LOT them! Finally found one where the most they can do, is turn the oven light on.

The instant hit water dispenser now has a very classy cover in form of a big turned over plastic box. The latest in feline kitchen decor. Yes, pj strings are of interest.

One thing I found that she does not like is of all things canned air. A small puff in her direction and she knows she is in trouble.

Thank you for caring!!!

All three doors leading to the outside have easy turn dead bolts and I religiously turn them. Habit after years of living on the Praerie with constant wind. Plus SO mounted good old fashioned chains to the very top of the doors and shortened them. Wiring around my desk is all tucked in. No knick knack to destroy. SO will deal with the pantry lights today and they are low voltage. Stove is safe and I will keep an eye on all faucets.

Last night she tackled a housecoat hanging up in the bathroom. Tried to walk off with it. Hillarious to see the little mouse with Bizzi all fluffed up tackle the big fleece monster.

Dishwasher and sink must have mysteries only Izzi knows about. You cannot find Izzi - open the dishwasher! Yes, sink strainers are in place and she cannot get them out. The aunties are sitting there, shaking their wise old heads and you can read their minds - silly thing!

Kittens.... never a dull moment! 

When the dog rescue told us that she wanted to inspect inside our home, to make sure it was safe for a 4 year old dog... I kinda laughed in my head.  Anything a dog can think of doing, a cat already has!

Miracles do happen! All four sets of whiskers were in our bed last night and made room for me. A few minutes of lots of purs and happy thoughts. This has never happened before. I want more of this.
