Cat Flap Door

If you have adopted a cat, you might want to let it go out on its own and come back at night or when its hungry or tired. By doing this, you’ll find several advantages, one of which is that the cat will enjoy some freedom and engage in some exercise, but it will also free you from the duty of cleaning a kitty litter often.

No matter what the reason if you have decided you want your cat to be an outdoor cat it will be much to your benefit to install a cat door pet door. With a cat flap door, your cat won’t need you to get up from your desk or your couch and open the door for your pet every time it goes out or comes in. Plus, installing a cat flap door isn’t incredibly difficult.

Installing A Cat Flap Door

You do not have to call a professional to install a cat flap door if you would rather save yourself some money and just do it on your own. The first thing to do is to take some basic measurements with a ruler or some other device to see how big the door needs to be. Cats’ sizes vary greatly and you don’t want the door to be too big or too small for your cat; and if your cat is still young, consider how much it will grow in the future.

Next, tools and materials have to be purchased, if you don’t have them already; they can be found in most hardware stores without problem. This can vary depending on what sort of details you are looking to have on the cat flap but the basic supplies include a saw, sandpaper, cat flap fixings and some safety goggles to protect your eyes. You can also draw the area to cut with a pencil so you have an easier time doing it.

Then, use the saw that you bought to cut out the door, starting from the inside and moving gradually to the outside, instead of the other way around. After that, use the sand paper and make the area around the flap door as smooth as possible, so that your cat doesn’t get scratched. It’s a good idea to make the flap door just a big bigger than your cat’s expected maximum size so that it has a good slack for going through.

The flap fixings include both the flap as well as the screws; make sure that the flap is safely attached and it won’t get loose easily. After installing the flap door, make usre that it works properly, moving freely to either side without too much effort, and not affecting the normal use of the door.
