Default ikea detolf

hey!!

i want to get an ikea detolf but my parents are worried about the security of it even with a lid, theyíre scared that my cats will be able to get into it. is it safe with cats around? i can easily keep them locked out of my bedroom if itís a problem, but i want to make sure itís extra safe just in case i forget.

thanks for the help!

I don't know exactly what cats can and can't do to a detolf but you could either weigh the lid down with something or find a way to lock the lid shut. If it's one continuous lid you could attach a turning pin sort of mechanism to each wooden end so the lid can't be lifted - much neater solution. I considered adding magnets to mine to make it stick more but ended up forgetting to. Without anything the lid just sits there really, mine is quite lightweight.
