The microchip cat door is suitable for small and medium cats, and can be installed in windows, walls, or doors.
I like the size and design of this cat door. It fits well on the garage door which is thin. My 15.4# cat can get through it OK. My cat, who will do anything to get outdoors, broke the door flap on the first 2 doors that I got. On the 3rd door, the lock fell off — I don’t know if the cat was able to pry it off or it was defective. I keep coming back to this door since the hole is already cut in the door and it works — it is just not make from very sturdy materials for a big cat that won’t give up until he gets outside. PETSAFE RESPONSE Hello Ellen, we are sorry to hear that your cat was able to break the door, and can understand how this would be frustrating! We would like to learn more about your scenario and find a way to help. Please give us a call at 1-800-732-2677 so that we can find a solution for you and your feisty cat.
How do you know which size cat door to get for your cat? Well, we recommend that you test it out! The size of one of the Cat Mate Cat Doors is 5 3/4″ w x 6 1/4″ h. If you take a piece of paper or cardboard, you can cut a hole that size and encourage your cat to step through that hole with some food or a toy. We actually have a video that shows how to measure your pets, and at the end you will see three cats testing out a 7″ x 7″ opening. Don’t think your cat will fit through that opening? You might be surprised. Cats are quite talented at getting through tight spaces, and usually seem to enjoy it! You don’t want your cat to have to squeeze, but usually they can comfortably get through much smaller openings that we imagine. Here is a smaller sized cat casually exiting a space that is very small:
This clever cat owner had a small dilemma of the dog always eating her cat’s food, so she created a cute cat house. She placed the food into the laundry room, and then created an adorable cat door from scrap wood and decorative trim, so just her cat could get to her food. The door was constructed plywood, small screws, wood glue, and L-brackets to hang it. As a finishing touch, she painted it and added decoration, ending up with a creative, fun, and practical cat door.
Who says cat doors have to be on the floor or on a door? Windows can also give your cats easy access to the outdoors. With a cat door window insert, it is really easy to provide mobility to your cat without having to rip up walls or doors. Window cat door inserts can be installed in minutes and are completely removable with no muss or fuss. All you need to do is open a window, insert the cat door window sash insert and you are done.
This adorable cat door was created as an easy access way for cats to reach their litter box. The creator constructed this cat door by first drawing the silhouette on the door, then cutting out the cat shape with a jigsaw. She sprayed some insulation foam into the hollow and then let it dry. Afterwards, she covered the cut edges with paper mache, primed it, and painted it. (If you would like to try this, you can use these amazing cat shaped stencils to help guide you.)
