The Cat Flap Door Installation

If you have a pet cat you may decide that you want them to be able to come and go outside as they please. 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.

Whatever the reason that you want to let your cat outside is, it will be better if you get a cat door door installed, or install one yourself. A cat flap door will ensure that your cat can come and go as they please without you having to worry about constantly having to open the door for them. Installing a cat flap door is very easy, even if you don’t have great building skills.

Installing A Cat Flap Door

Installing a cat door door is doable by most people, so you might want to try it and save yourself the money that it takes to hire someone to do it. Of course first you will want to take some measurements to have an idea of how large the pet door needs to be. All cats are different sizes and you certainly do not want your cat to end up stuck on their way out the door.

Then you want to get your tools and supplies together. Of course, this will depend on the type of door you want as well as your building skills (if you’re a novice, stick with the simplest), but they generally include a saw, sand paper, door fixing, and safety goggles. 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. The sandpaper will work well to smooth things out and ensure there are no rough edges that will hurt kitty as they make their way through. 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. Once you are finished the flap should be easy to go back and forth through and there should not be any cracks or openings when the flap is closed.
