    The Cat Door: A Practical Idea


    Some cat owners decide to install a cat door in their homes. This type of door is also known as a cat flap. The idea of a cat door is to let a car come in and out without the owner opening the door. These pet openings have come along way since they were initially tried and tested. These days, pet doors are framed with sturdy and versatile plastic or wood. The doors will, of course, resist any wear caused by the cat going through them. These are important points when buying or considering different cat doors.

    Size and Form

    The size and build of the feline should be considered when buying a cat flap. Some breeds, like the American maine coon cat, are too big for some doors, while small breeds might not be able to push open some doors due to lack of strength. The frame that accommodates the door for the cat should be made of strong material in order to last several years and withstand outside factors such as prying and banging.

    The material of the door can be more flexible, with some even being made in glass. Of course, both the door and the frame should be appropriate to the size and the strength of the cat.

    Electronic or Magnet-based

    These doors were designed to work in coordination with the cat. Some doors can sense the presence of the cat through a "key" attached to its collar. This means that the cat wearing the collar will be the only cat that can go inside or outside the house. This is very beneficial if the catís being chased by dogs or by other cats. Of course, if for some reason the collar fails, then the cat has to wait for the owner to let it in. Other types of cat doors detect the animal and not the collar that it's wearing. Since the features of each cat door vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model, it pays to find specific information about them before making a purchasing decision.

    A cat door is a very practical idea. This will let the cat come and go by itself. You can even get a cat flap that will open only for your cat.
