Defintley did not expect it to work as well as it does. We have 2 cats and no longer do we have cat hair all over the house. We installed this on our laundry door and they use it regularly to get to their food and litter. The amount of hair it catches is crazy! Would 100% recommend this to any cat owner. Easy to install into an internal door! Just cut a bit smaller than needed and file/sand as needed.
This product arrived promptly and was very easy to install. It looks great and is good quality. My cats caught on to using it quickly and it is working perfectly. My 12 lb cat fits through easily and it has been just the solution needed to keep cats area in basement where my new puppy cannot access. I highly recommend
The cat door arrived in perfect condition. My husband had no problems with the installation. As you can see from the pictures, the door gives the cat some privacy. The dog is not too happy about it. :-)
I used it to go thru a wall than a door. so the two pieces don't come together. I used it to go from office to garage. attached the brushes to one side w zip ties and mount both to wall. works great and litter box is in garage w no smell inside the house or rooms.
Everything is nice and easy to install I was pretty confused by the directions due to I am sure when I am not looking my cat can fly. Since my daughters cat can't fly I decided to put the door on the bottom as suggested. They seem to like it there a lot.
Pros: I bought this because it included a grooming bush (one of our cats sheds so much he would leave hair all over our pillows). The brush works great! Installation was easy Aesthetically pleasing Cons: the template left the hole slightly to big (I made the cut inside the trace line), Tracing the actual lip of the piece that goes through the door would’ve made a better fit. The skinny 3m double sided sticky does not have enough surface area to make a good bond, I fixed this by adding larger pieces of 3M double sided sticky tap
PAWSM can improve the product by adding wider adhesive and reducing the size of the template. If the cut is too small customers can always cut more of the door away... you can never “undo” a cut.
I’m an avid DIY’r, woodworker, and a licensed electrician. I installed this per the instructions as if I had no knowledge of woodworking, experience DIYing or mechanical aptitude.
This cat door works well for my two cats. The fat cat is over 20 lbs and looks kinda funny squeezing her fat body through, but she does it and that's all I care. I had to push her through the first time to show her what to do.
Two tips: 1. If using a jig saw, cut from the ugly side of the door. My saw left a large mark on the door from the skid plate as i went around. Other option is to put down cardboard to protect the door from the saw plate. 2. When I cut right on the line of the included template, the door was much smaller than the hole I cut, and only part of the two sided tape is actually touching the door. I suggest cutting 1/2" smaller than the template and try the door. Then trim as necessary for a more snug fit.
I uploaded a video already, but it does the trick. My fiancé says it’s mafe very cheap as he was installing it. The brush doesn’t seem to really brush them? But out of 5 cats no one is scared of it, it keeps the dogs from their Sandy Snacks (yuck!). And like I said on the video, it’s not pretty on a wood door but I wasn’t going to pay an extra $10 for the white one.
Update: owned for about 6 months! Cats seem to love this. It’s an immediate escape from our 2 German Shepherds that love chasing them. They fly into this hole and watch the dogs from the inside. Some of them often stay in there till the dogs take a nap. Our 15 lb gray kitty is shown in the video leaving the hole. All of our cats seem to have no problem with it. The brush falls out on occasion but slips right back in, it IS also covered in cat hair so it does brush them on the way In. They don’t seem to ever scratch themselves on it so it must not be very noticeable. Definitely would repurchase. This has been the greatest device to keep our dogs out of the litter boxes.
