Get Cat Mate’s Wall Liner for easy wall installation.
We bought this because it was the correct dimensions for what we had before, Staywell. It is very cheap and plasticy if that is a word. The way it locks and unlocks leaves a lot to be desired. It works but it doesn't work easily or great. Cat Mate needs to go back to the drawing board on this and create a larger, less rinky dink locking mechanism.
The magnets on this door securely seal the flap in this tidy little door. Unfortunately, 2 of my cats don’t like to push hard enough to use the entry. My bolder kitty has no fear and uses it without hesitation. I’m hoping the others will use it with time and continued exposure.
We got this cat door to make an entrance to the cat patio through a window. This door is perfect as you can adjust it to fit a multitude of different sizes and instructions are there on how to adjust it. Great door and very sturdy. Keeps the cold wind out and we have lots of wind up here close to the Canadian boarder
I needed a cat door so the cats could get in and out of bedroom with door closed. The size of this door was perfect to go through the wall, added one # 303 extender to squeeze out a 4 inch thick wall. I used wide tape to the extension to fix to the end plate. I used hot glue to stick up four 1/4 " wood stakes to inside wall for mount screws, worked great, looks great! The door looks small, but all my cats fit thru just fine.
I bought this as a replacement for the one I had installed several years earlier. I needed to make a small modification to the existing hole, but other than that, this product fit perfectly, and seems much more stable than the previously one (from a different company). It is sturdy, strong, and well made. I would purchase it again.
The door I installed this on was a hollow-core door, and it was just too thick for even the longest screws to fit through. I had to glue it around the rim to get it to stay, which I have no problem with, but maybe add one more set of longer screws. Also, it’s very small. My oldest cat is eight months old and he takes up pretty much the whole thing when going through. Once they get bigger I’m not sure they’ll be able to get through.
I do not know if everyone has only small cats and teacup dogs but out of the multiple cats I care for, over half of them will not fit through this door. Small Cat - Teacup Dog - Fine ... Norma cat, no ... I need a door that will fit 17 to 18 inch wide cats and definitely taller than this door. I tried to fit an average cat through this door and the cat freaked out because of how short and slim it is. I am not finding good measurements as I read about the doors - small, medium, large - how about width and height of animal. Either the information is not clear or I am struggling to understand. And I could not tell if it came with a liner, so I purchased a liner because it appeared indicated that I needed one. I have wasted my money on both of these items.
My cats still don’t open it on their own but in time! I love the locking system and size !!
Great product. I've installed 3 so far. Not hard at all if it's a hollow door.
I replaced a 15 years door because the flap broke. Very easy to install. great door.
