    I'm getting a potbelly pig from my neighbor and also have an inside cat. I am told the potbelly pig will eat kitty litter and die. Anyone else have both? What is your rig up to keep the cats box out of reach of the pig? Put it up on something maybe and make the cat jump up to get to it?

    I don't have a pig or a cat but what about those kittylitter box shelters that have those small entrances? You know, the ones that are made to look like an end table or something,

    Put something around it that cat can jump over.

    I have a pig that lives in my house and she is a year old now, I have 3 cats and 1 dog, all in the house. My cat box is in a different room with a swing gate the cats jump over to get to the cat box. Yes cat litter will kill the pig , it will make them deathly sick and die if not treated asap and then still may not live if they eat it.
