Got this item within about 3 days after ordering. The installation was easy although I am a little surprised the screws are screwed in from the outside. My cat is a brat so I find it hard to fault him not taking to it quickly as being an issue with the door. He will use it when he wants to but still prefers us opening the door for him. It does make me feel better that he has a way to get in and out when we are not home
Did NOT come with ID discs
on Sep 26, 2017
According to the description and written in the reviews this cat door should have come with 2 ID discs, however it did not. We have been able to get 1 cat's chip to register with the door but have not been able to get the other cat's chip to register. So as of right now we are having to leave the door on training mode. :/ I figured we wouldn't need the discs since both cats are chipped but it's not picking up one cat (maybe her chip is too old?...she is 15). So it woukd have been great if the discs were supplied as stated.
The good news is it only took a day for them to get used to the new smaller door. Our previous door was a small dog door. I am hoping chewy.com will send me the discs forAccording to the description and written in the reviews this cat door should have come with 2 ID discs, however it did not.

I think that the other reviewers of the product just got lucky, or something.
The door only opens for our cat two-thirds of the time. The other times he simply bangs his head into the door, and nothing happens. He then stands there confused and locked out.
We were hoping this would work for when we take weekend trips. Allowing our cat to come in the house and eat while we're gone. But, there's no way I would ever take a chance on leaving him alone, knowing that in all likelihood this door is not going to open. That would be my number one caution to anyone considering buying this product.
Great Cat Door

This is a great cat door for the money. Programming it wasn't easy but I figured it out and it doesn't allow you to erase extra cat numbers but you can reset back to manufacture sitting. The microchip doesn't work with my metal door but the ID tags work wonderfully. I haven't open the door for my 2 cats since it was installed. It took them 24 hrs to get the hang of it. The indicator window is awesome. I know when my cats are inside or outside. That was my main deciding factor to purchase the Cat Mate and the price. I LOVE it.
Best price for amazing product

I was "delighted, enchanted, blown away, jubilant, thrilled, ecstatic, tickled pink, euphoric, overjoyed, pleasantly surprised, elated, flying high, excited, and definitely over the moon about your experience with us,"per your returns page. Easier to program than an older model. We use the id disk even though our cat is microchipped... chip may just not be in a good position in our cat. Cat got used to the buzz and actually waits for it as a signal the door can be pushed open. She is usually cautious when coming in, but will crash through if she senses some threat. She goes in and out often and uses the garden...the indoor litter box has not had to be changed in months. Yea!

This cat door is a great value and the quality is excellent. If you need a small/medium cat door I recommend it.
Doesn't read chip

The cats don't like the noise and so far we haven't been able to get the programming right. We put the machine on training mode so hopefully the cats start using it.

I really like the look and functionality of the whole set up however my cat is large (fluffy) and hates it. Thinking I may have to get a bigger one, by the time it was installed in the wall it is 8 inches deep and he had a hard time dragging his girth thru it, lol!

The cat mate was easy to program my cats micro chip-After entering the program mode I just walked my cat trough the door and it was programed to let her in. Also the door was easy to install. My cat did have to get used to the click that the lock makes.

"Adopted" a little stray into our barn. Was very concerned about other strays making it through the cat door and invading her privacy. This cat door was the answer! Not the easiest thing to program, but once we installed the door, had her microchipped and after a few attempts, programmed the door... success! We had to let her get used to the door and the locking sound in "training mode" for about a week, but now, she head-butts her way into the barn and I can rest easy that she's safe and warm. Hooray for this cat door!
