Mocha, I would get those if it was going to be a little more permanent. I'm trying to be minimalist since this is a temporary (less than 3 months) location.
I put up some cardboard around the walls and tried expanding their area quite a bit:
Is this enough space for their play time? I think when S.O. is home, I'll have to have it the way was in the first post since it is annoying to hop over the pen to get to the bedroom (where the gate is). I also need to get more cardboard to put around the door way (where those plastic blue things are).
Or do I have to buy another xpen? If I do, I could expand it a little more:
I would want to use the current xpen to wrap around the couch and end table (or move it) and then have the new xpen across the bottom of this picture. (And wrap the legs of the coffee table up, although Arduina likes to jump and its glass..). I don't really want to have to buy another xpen though, since I'm also on a jobless budget right now. So I hope this is ok for the next few months?
