Homemade pet door

homemade cat screen doorI tried to find something like this in the pet department of the big store I was in last week and struck out.

It's just a compilation of 5 scrap pieces of wood and a folded over flap of screen material. A notch on the right side with a dab of glue seems to be enough to anchor it to the screen frame. I hope our cats are smart enough to adapt to a proper pet entrance which can be easily closed down at night by shutting the window.

You can find this kind of thing in eg, Lowes, but a solid door, not a screen. Works well.. like your homemade version, but the cats will be really annoyed come winter time when it doesn't work :)

Yeah, we thought about the winter problem after putting it in. I guess we'll have to make them a winter door too!
