To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We painted this blue to match our walls and it looks incredible. It came pre sanded and primed so I just painted 2 coats and it was good to use!. Our cats use it with no issues and even our 16 lb cat can get through it without complaining!
Guests have commented on how awesome it is! I highly recommend, If I had other rooms they needed unlimited access to I am sure I would buy more.
If you want to leave it unpainted it looks perfect white also. You do not need to paint it white unless you really really want too.
I'm really glad I read the reviews on here because people are right, the template is too big for the item. It seems fine when you hold the product up with only the head or tail side on but as soon as you put both sides together, you'll notice the actual size of the hole needs to be smaller to account for the tension on the inner plastic. Anyway, just make sure you check and double check to ensure you're comfortable with the arch you're cutting. Otherwise, they're SUPER cute and in my opinion, well worth the price.
Quick delivery. Great idea, however needs some tweaks. When the door was cut using the stencil, the hole was 1/2” too large all the way around. It still worked but the hole was larger than needed. Also the wood itself was very rough and when the cats go through it, cat fur sticks to it. Would recommend sanding it smooth and painting prior to installing. Also seems very expensive for what it is.
This cat door is like no other i could find online. Definitely pricey but looks great and our cat has no problems going back and forth. With the template and my jig saw it was installed in minutes. It comes with tabs to stick it on but I used some construction glue to hold it better. I also used white caulking around it to give it a seamless look. The template gives a bit bigger hole then needed, so cut it a bit smaller for a nicer fit.
