My 1 1/2 year old won't stop playing in the litter box. Every time I turn around she's running to it and more. I can't clean without her getting into it. She goes to play with her brother in te play room and then she runs to play in the box when I turn to go to the bathroom, clean or anything else. I told her brother to keep a new on her so I can clean for little bit but he doesn't. He's staring at her playing in it and laughing. She also was te litter. I have no other place for it l. I'm not getting rid of the cat. Any ideas? I tried tapping her butt lightly but that doesn't help.

You don't have it somewhere that you can shut the door?

 We always kept ours in the bathroom when I was a kid....

Where in your house is it? Anyway you could place it in the bathroom and instal a swing gate outside the door, so the cats can jump over that to use it but she cant get to it?

No. It's by the funace. There's no room in the bathroom. I wanted to put it upstairs but my older cat (rescued abused cat) upstairs HATES other cats and idk if she would refuse to use he box if I put it by hers.

I have 2 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 kids. My kids are old enough to know better now, unfortunately the dogs are not (KITTY ROCCA, YAY!). And when my kids were younger, they were fascinated too. I got one of these: 

And cordoned off part of the kitchen. The cats could get in and out, the dogs and kids couldn't/can't.

I might need to get that because the kitty's food dish is in the kitchen and she loves to play with it.
