While I could make the door poodle proof, Cotton can still get in so I raised the food a bit. I figure this small table is easier to jump up on than a counter. Once Cotton gets used to the idea of not going in the room (which isn't too hard - he's not very adventurous) I'll put the bowls on the floor.
I haven't moved the litter box into the tub yet - I want to make sure I can keep the poodle out of the room before I do that. (I'll spare you the picture of that when the time comes.)
