Cat Diapers: Natalie Explains How She Diapers Dimity Jane Step-By-Step

May 14, 2013

Natalie has been gracious enough to show us all how she manages to diaper her CH cat, Dimity Jane – and Dimity Jane has been gracious enough to be photographed during the entire process!

Here’s a look at their daily routine, according to Natalie:

Because my Dimity is a very sweet girl, I was able to take a series of pictures of how I diaper her one-handed while she laid on my lap. One of the reasons Dimity is so good about it is that I’ve been diapering her since I got her at 3 months. I don’t know that an adult cat would be so easy, but they might be able to get used to it.

One of the things I wanted to mention is that I buy human size 1 diapers for her, and have figured out where to cut the tail hole, and roll up the excess in the front. Then I tuck in the sides of the roll and pull the tabs all the way around to the back.

She has only wiggled out once, and I figured out why – the tab was too low. I also make sure that I pull up the legs so that she has plenty of room to move, and that her back legs aren’t restricted in any way.

I’ve had people who can’t understand why I take the 5 or 10 minutes to clean her up and diaper her every morning, and change her when necessary, but I just think that this little cat deserves a chance to live – she’s VERY happy, curious, and affectionate, and so what if she’s a bit clumsy – she does everything a kitten is supposed to do, except use the litter box. Hey, I’m not perfect, either, and it seems a very small addition to what I would do for my cats anyway.

    What champs you both are – you for doing that every day and her for being so good about it. I think my cat would try to kill me in my sleep if I attempted it, but I would definitely do the same if I had to! The CH kitties are definitely worth it.

    Natalie, it is wonderful to see that you and Dimity have such a trusting and rewarding relationship, and Dimity is obviously so loved and well cared for. Well done you two!
