Give Your Cat Freedom with a Cat Door
If you are a cat parent, then you know how much they love to be outside. Living in the country affords us the luxury of being able to let our fur babies roam free without much worry. It gets super annoying, though, when they want to come in and out, in and out, much like kids. Especially if you don’t have a cat door for the window.
The biggest difference is unless you have a pet door, you have to let them out and back in. The upside is you get a bit of exercise, but that’s about it for the positives. Life with cats is so much easier when they have their own cat door.
Our “Cat Sash” Cat Door from PetDoors.com (a cat door for windows) is the perfect way to give Phoebe his freedom without having to listen to his screeching meows to go outside. He can come in and out on his own, although we’re still working on the coming in part.
The best thing about this cat door is that I didn’t need any tools to install it. It slid right into my window, no assembly required. It even comes with a draft guard to make sure there are no open cracks. You can buy a lock for the cat door to control when your cat goes out, and to keep stray cats from coming in.
I use the cover that came with the door to keep Phoebe inside after dark. I think the lock would be easier since it does need some bending to get the cover on and off due to my window’s overhang.
It didn’t take Phoebe long to figure out how the door works. After headbutting the side windows a few times it clicked that the center was the way to go. Oh, that’s another thing I like about this cat door – it has 2 glass windows on either side of the flap. This lets your pet look outside, even if they don’t go out. The windows add a nice aesthetic touch.
The fact that the Cat Door for window isn’t physically attached to the window means I can move it to other rooms with no issues. It adjusts from 33″ to 38″ and may be customized to fit other window sizes! There are multiple flap sizes too, so if you have a fat cat like Phoebe there are no issues!
Is it Easy for a Cat to Use a Cat Door For Window?
Coming inside through the cat door is something Phoebe is still working on. When he’s ready to come inside, he’ll sit outside the window and meow. I have to open it to get him to peek his head through. I think we’re going to get some pet steps to help make it level on both sides. Overall, the Ideal Cat Sash Cat Door for Sash Windows from PetDoors.com has been an incredible gift for both Phoebe and me. I can’t recommend it enough and am already trying to decide which door to get next.

I really love this idea for a pet door since it is so easy to use. My fiance and I just recently adopted a new puppy named Boomer and we want to make sure that he has an easy way to get in and out of the house. We will be sure to look into some of these easy installation features.
I’ve always wanted a pet door. We have 5 acres, so enough that our pets could safely go in and out if we had a door.
That cat door really is convenient and your cat is so adorable. It’s great that there are pet doors for both cats and dogs alike and also have cool services.
This is so cool! My friend has a cat and she is going to love this “Cat Door”. I’m sharing it right now!
That is so neat! My husband used to have cats, but he never thought of installing a cat door.
That is so cool, what a great way to keep both sides happy!
I’ve seen a dog door before! Absolutely love the idea, cats can go indoor and outdoor at anytime.
I like the design of this cat door. Oddly enough, we installed a cat door at our house 6 years ago… and neither of my cats have any interest in going outside. We’ve left the front door open and tried to coax them out, and nope. They have no interest at all lol
I love the idea of both cat and dog doors!! I think it’s great to give your indoor animals the freedom they need to go outside and do their “business”.
This would be great for an indoor outdoor cat. I have never had one. Too worried about fleas, predators and traffic. It would be cool to attach one of those cat rooms which allow the cat to go “outside” while still being safe.
This is so cool. My last cat was an indoor/outdoor cat and she shared her door with our dog. If I get another cat I would think about doing this again.
I haven’t had a dog/cat door on any of our houses. We always had to let them in and out. If I ever own a house again, I think that I will install a dog door into the laundry room.
I have never seen a cat door before! What a neat idea! I love the idea of letting your outdoor cat have the freedom to come and go. Pretty neat.
I’ve seen these for dogs before but this is the first time I’ve seen a cat door. Nice idea for people who let their cats go outside.
I’ve always loved the ideas of a cat door. I just can’t have one going outside because of all the critters that may get in. I live in the country, and we have lots of critters around here. I do love the look of this cat door though!
That is such a cool door! I love that you can put it in a window, I did not know you could do that. Phoebe is so cute and I look forward to seeing more of his adventures!
My daughter has an indoor cat. I think it would be nice to let her little kitty go outside once in a while. I will share this with her.
What a great idea! We had a cat door going down to our basement at one point, but this sounds such a great concept in that it installs right in a window. So easy! How great that you are able to give your cat the freedom he wants.
Our cats are inside cats only but this door would be great for cats that do go outside. It would give the people freedom AND the cats too!
I need to get a cat door for my fur baby. It looks like a great option of pets. I am sure my cat would love one.
We are dog people, because I have severe cat allergies…and I had no idea that they made cat doors! What a great idea for those that have cats.
That’s a great idea for anyone with an indoor/outdoor cat. Cats are naturally very independent creatures so being able to come and go as they please would be great for them.
