Tie a bandana around their midsection to keep them from racing around the joint?

I already feed them cat food, train them to kill mice and make them sleep on the floor

Fox said it was inappropriate to make them poop in a litterbox, even if they want to.

Look, the veterinarian is every bit as capable as a "pediatrician" at treating children. My kid's never once had worms!

Make sure you get them fixed?

In all seriousness, i can say that my 3 year old loves playing in boxes. I had one last week that was "a boat to South America" (her words, not mine), and later was an airplane that she sat in with her 1 y/o sister. Tons of fun while the rest of the living room is strewn with toys.

Squirt them with water if they get too close to the Christmas tree?

When I was a kid we would turn the box over and pretend it was a submarine

Ok
Can of tuna and some greenies it is!

That's going to be one spoiled kid.

I remember playing with all the large appliance boxes as a kid.  They'd last essentially to the next rain storm, though I do remember one set that we were smart enough to save by tossing the garage before it rained.  Those lasted about 2 weeks.  Fort Whirlpool and the Kenmore Saloon

Give her a box of crayons and have her go to town. Anywhere of the box is good to go, the walls are a no no zone.

One (1) genuine turnpike tollbooth to be erected according to directions.
Three (3) precautionary signs to be used in a precautionary manner.

When my kids were small, I got them all hyped up about getting the boxes for our new washer and dryer that was being delivered. The truck pulls up, and they're watching with anticipation as the delivery guys unload the washing machine... and slice the box to pieces. I ran out the door hollering, "NOOO!" Caught them before they got to the dryer.

Have these guys never delivered an appliance to a house with kids before???

No kids, 6 cats.  each has a name and knows it.. will come if called.  They understand no, and would rather obey than get squirted..  They have me trained very well.  They voluntarily keep their claws sheathed when playing.. they can kill the litterbox area (scent wise) but will go back and cover up their 'gifts' if fussed at.. they don't have phones or credit cards.
Cats body temperature is 101F, therefore, I have a self-assembling, self-applying fur blanket.   One farts.
