Not Just for Dogs, There’s a Pet Door for Cats Too

Back to Blog

You’ve probably heard a lot about dog doors, and how they provide your canine family members the freedom to go outside whenever they want, but what about your cat? Is there a pet door for cats? Yes. 

Cats tend to be very adventurous, and though they’re technically not nocturnal, many are active at night. Consider getting your fabulous feline a kitty door, so that it can explore, access its litter box, or access its food and water without using you as its personal doorman. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of cat doors and discover the best pet door for cats. You’ll be glad you did—and so will your cat.  

The Important Benefits of a Pet Door for Cats

Even though your cat has their litter box and doesn’t need to go outside to relieve itself, cats instinctively love having the freedom to explore. The problem is, every time they want to go in and out, they have to meow at the door and wait for you. Then, they have to repeat the process from the other side when they want to come back in. A pet access door for your cat solves this problem.

An indoor pet door for cats allows free access. You can give kitty easy access to their special place, whether in a certain room, favorite closet, or catio. You can install our pet doors through walls, doors, windows, and even in a sliding glass door (professional installation required). 

What Kind of Pet Door is Best for Cats?

The best pet door for your cat is made for long-lasting use and is sized right. Cat doors are usually on the smaller side.

We offer a “small” size for very small cats. The “small-medium” size is for cats that are more average in size. But what if your feline is a bit “chunky”? They may be more comfortable with our “medium” sized door.

Hale offers 12 pet door sizes to accommodate larger cats or multiple animals.


Where/How to Install Pet Door for a Cat?

Unlike many of our competitors who just sell products, Hale offers step-by-step instructions on installing each of our pet door models. For more complex installations, you can hire one of our trained professionals

Our cat door can be installed in many locations, from a front door to an interior wall or porch window.

Train Your Cat to Use a Pet Door

If your kitty is a bit shy about using their new pet door, you can train them to be more comfortable by using treats or their favorite toy. Here are some tips and tricks on how to train your cat to use a cat door. Although a dog is pictured in the illustrations, these techniques work just as well for cats. If they are still hesitant, a training flap can help.
