Claire can fit through the cat door in our kitchen gate. Guess how I know?!
I've had to start locking Claire out of the kitchen when the dishwasher runs because she has now located the cancel button AND the door latch. Mid-cycle sneak peeks into the mysterious washer by a toddler who loves to splash in the water...yeah, not for the feint of heart. On the bright side of things, my floor is nice and shiny again!
As for the cats, Gecko is able to shimmy between the vertical rails of the baby gate to get to his food, but poor fat (and I mean FAT) Raymond is going to have to heft himself over the gate now. Poor kitty.
And since you're probably already laughing, this should add to the general hilarity of this post:

Claire loves to gather. Give her a basket and she'll happily place things inside and transport them to whatever make believe land she's got going in her mind. Lately she's been putting toys in her basket and chatting with them under the dining room table, it's so sweet to watch her little imagination blossom.
With the warm weather (finally!) the past couple of days, Claire has been busy piling all the patio rocks onto our chopping block outside. What a busy kid she is! With the few billion pebbles that make up our patio this should keep her busy ALL summer.
