Question

Has anyone used this for kittens?

I have to keep my older cat seperated from my new kitten while I'm at work. I'd like to use a gate that has a pet door (so she can get out while I'm home) but I'm worried she'll be able to climb out of this. Do the verticle smooth bars prevent this?

answer 4
Smaller kittens would be able to go though the slates. Cats in their prime to older would be able to jump over the gate. I have two cats and sometimes they go through the little door and other times just for fun they jump over the gate. This would not keep your older cat from the kittens. Since they are older now, they may even be able to jump over it them selves. They start to do that pretty early. Good luck.

I'm not sure this is the gate for you since you have kittens. Because your kittens might be able to fit through the bars. They are a little over 2 1/2 inches width. But I see you posted this over a month ago, so maybe your kittens have gotten bigger so they won't fit through. Hope this helps!

The gate is mounted on either side by screwing cups into either wall and then extending the 'feet' into the cups. The locking mechanism is pretty secure. Having said that, that's a powerful dog and may be able to force it. You should probably use sheet rock anchors, just in case.

answer 11
It's pressure mounted, and is secured to a wood frame by pressure. It comes with wall cups to make it more secure. I would think using the wall cups and a tight pressure, might be much better than other pressure gates you might have used.

There are other brand of baby gates, there is one by evenflo that is made for the top of the stairs. I would assume any type of gate that is made for the top of the stairs would be the best in holding back the weight of the dog.

The only problem I forsee is that the tighter the pressure, the more the door comes together, that's how it's made, it's not a defect. However, you might need tremendous pressure for a Rottie. And it would make it so you would not be able to open the door to walk through.

Also, there is no way a rottie would fit through the small pet door. My dog is 25lbs and he fits through perfectly. It is a bit of snug fit, but it works for small to medium size dogs.

About 3 1/2 inches wide. I wouldn't think a large rabbit could slip through, but definitely a dwarf rabbit. You could always try it out and watch closely to make sure it can't get through. If it doesn't work, you can always return it.

Depending on how large the rabbit is, I would say it would be a close call. The slats are close, but my dog's muzzle can easily fit thru it. If the rabbit is on the smaller side, it might get stuck trying to jump thru the gate. If the rabbit is on the larger side, I would say you'd be ok.
