A cat door provides easy access in and out of your house for your pet cat. They come in array of sizes, colours and types, and with so many specialist cat doors companies around you’ll have no problems finding the right one for you.
To begin with it’s very important that you do some research on whether your particular breed of cat is OK to be outside. Many cats are fine to leave the security of their indoor environment and wander outside, however Ragdolls for example are strictly indoor cats and therefore installing a car doors would not be necessary.
If you’ve determined then that your particular breed of cat is OK outside then the fun begins with selecting the right cat door for you. Whether you would like to have your cat door installed into the flyscreen, wood, glass or brick etc there is sure to be one available on the market and if not a customised one could be designed. Cat doors are typically manually operated, in that the cat uses its body to push the flap open from either inside or outside of the house. Other innovative designs however are on the market where special senses built into the cat door and are activated when your cat, wearing the ‘key’ collar (special magnet) wants to use the door. The benefit of this design is that other unwanted neighbourhood cats not wearing the key collar can not enter your house.
Most basic types of cat doors can be installed yourself or easily by a glazier or specific tradesperson and you can purchase them online from a variety of places or from your local pet store.
