Doors for cats
Separate doors for cats today have already become a necessity. Fifteen years ago a simple lover of these tailed people could not think of such convenience. But this is additional comfort for you and for the animal. By the way, it does not matter at all - you live in a city apartment or somewhere outside the city in a cozy mansion. The main thing is that if you have a door for cats, you obviously will have less trouble.
Owners of private houses allow their animals to walk in the courtyard. Of course, this is a plus - more movement, a healing sun, fresh air. But for a long time to watch the animal and wait for it to walk, you see, it's uncomfortable.
And if you are the owner of an apartment, walks for cats are often limited to going out onto the balcony. But there is another problem - the toilet. Not every cat will notify its owner with plaintive meowing about the desire to visit his tray. What to do? Keep the doors constantly open? But this is the reason for the drafts and the temperature drop in the house (apartment) in the winter.
It turns out that the way out is long thought out. And these are special, small doors for cats. Thanks to them, your pets can easily and at any time go out onto the street, to the balcony, to the toilet.
Manufacturers of animal products have been worried about creating doors for cats that differ in configuration, size and functionality. They are easily mounted in almost any door (armored in the calculation we do not take).
This is, as a rule, a rectangular (square) device, which has a sealing edging. The mechanism works absolutely noiselessly. And the edging, installed around the perimeter, guarantees the absence of a draft. The principle of the door for cats is based on the action of the magnetic clamp. Among the small additions - a special lock, allowing if you want to control the movement of the pet.
These are the simplest doors for cats coming to pet stores. In comparison with more modern, equipped with chip-reading devices, it is much cheaper (within 1000 - 1500 rubles). By the way, you can buy a door with an "input-output" indicator. This "toy" will let you know when the animal went for a walk, and when - returned home. From penetration of foreign animals you will be insured by a special key, attached to the collar. The device will "feel" the approach of "its" and unlock the door. For other animals, this loophole will be closed.
Passage in the door for cats can be done on your own. Of course, if you are not a master, but only learn, then it will not look so aesthetically. However, this option is more economical. How to make a door for a cat? We offer several options for consideration.
1. Cut the hole and in the shape of the hole (with an overlap of a couple of centimeters at the edges) attach a piece of dense carpet or rubber. This is the simplest varant.
2. To make a hole with a micro-marker (or decorative corner, or a pattern), and insert the mini-door into the hole itself (by the type of the window). Loops in this case it is more convenient to do at the top, so that the door keeps falling all the time. By the way, on this door you can attach small locks (or even hooks) in order to be able to close the laz (for example, at night). And in order to minimize drafts, a sealant is applied around the perimeter of the window. If you want the door to close automatically and do not "walk", just install the magnet. It is interesting and rather unusual looking round glass from the glass (orgalita). The same shape of the door rotates as the cat passes through the window. An example of such a lazy you can look at one of the photos in this article.
All climbs are set at a height of 12-14 cm from the floor. Dimensions are selected by the cat (there are quite large breeds).
It is quite easy to train a cat to the door. After installation, the las is left open for a while. Since cats are very curious by nature, they will certainly get acquainted with the "curiosity". Accelerates the process of a bowl with food placed on that side of the bed. Usually cats take weeks to consolidate skills.
