Installing a Cat Door

Your cat’s ENTIRE WORLD depends on going outside – that’s what he tells you, anyway. Over. And over. And over again. So, rather than having to get up from the couch again – even though this is the 10th time you’ve tried to finish watching the Aristocats without interruption – why not install a cat door?

A cat door gives ol’ wandering Whiskers the freedom to go out and do ‘his business’, among other shady dealings with birds, caterpillars and the indoor Calico nextdoor – who SWEARS he will break through that glass patio door, one of these days. Other than that, cat doors keep everyone happy.

Pet doors come in a variety of different shapes and sizes for cats and dogs, and can be fitted easily into almost any door or wall. Now, if you consider yourself more of a DIY pet-lover, then installing the pet door can be done by you. Or, you can make it easy on yourself and simply call an experienced installer. Whichever you choose, Muffin will be laying somewhere nearby, licking herself, and pretending not to be extremely entertained.
