Escrito por Mundocachorro

Cats can be delightful companion animals, but they can also sometimes display impressive willpower and character. What we mean is that sometimes kitties want to do their bidding and keeping them happy can be quite a task. It will be the case that if your cat likes to go in and out of the house at will, installing a cat door can be a solution so that everyone can be happier.

However, that’s not the only reason a cat door is worth installing. In fact, there are a variety of situations in which having it can make life simpler and calmer. Remember that this type of door can be installed on walls, wooden doors or even on glass.

Cat door

In the market you can find a great variety of this article. This is because a cat door adapts to the different needs that may arise. Let’s see when you might need a cat door:

Enjoying the outdoors

This is the most obvious reason why it pays to install a cat door. Whenever there is a patio, balcony or terrace in your home, having a special door for your kitty will allow him to enjoy the outdoors without you having to constantly open and close the door for him.

If they work outside, this can be a perfect solution for kittens left home alone. But if you are afraid of strange cats entering, you can install a door with an electromagnetic key. It will open only when your cat approaches it with the key that you can hang on its collar.


A door of this type can be installed inside the house for different reasons. For example, if you have more than one cat and want to separate them for some reason. It will be very useful in cases where you have to give them different foods and you will be able to separate the food.

In cases of families with several cats, it sometimes happens that one of the cats harasses another. With a door, you can separate them and give the cat some peace of mind by denying access to the harassing cat.

Another case in which it will be very useful to install a cat door at home is when you want to leave their litter box in a place that must remain closed. The cat will be able to enter through the door, but if there are other pets such as dogs or small children, the site will be closed. In this case it is also good to install a door with an electromagnetic lock so that your cat can get in and out when needed.


The installation of such a door is usually quite simple. In most cases it will be sufficient to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. In any case, remember that if your cat will go outdoors, you should always put an identification tag on it in case it gets lost.
