In our apartment there’s a big stairway at the entrance and once you get to the top there’s a fence around the stairway which means there’s a long drop on one side. We got the plastic spikes because we were worried they’d fall and hurt themselves.

We’ve since removed these because if they’re not trying to walk on them they’re trying to pick and eat them. When we first got them they worked okay, but now we’re just going to trust their sense of balance.
