It is fairly likely that you have heard of dog doors. Most people know that dogs like to go outside for a number of reasons, and pet doors make it so that people do not have to go to the door and let their dog out every time this happens. However, these doors can be beneficial to cats and their owners as well. Many cats like to spend time both indoors and outdoors, and these doors can serve the same purpose that they do with dogs, in that they allow the cats to go outside without you having to stop what you are doing and let them outside. Advanced Window Products is one company that offers these types of doors, and you can consider the types of doors they have available that can be of assistance to you and your cat.
The Benefits of Cat Doors
A pet door can go a long way in keeping your cat happy, and it can make your life easier as well. Cats will now have the freedom to come and go as they please rather than have to rely on you. Additionally, if you let them out and suddenly have to go somewhere, you could have some problems without a cat door, as they will not be able to come back in without you there to let them in. Cat doors solve these problems easily, as you do not need to be around for them to go in or out.
In cases of fluctuations of temperatures or weather conditions, your cat may want to come back in sooner than usual. With a pet door, they are able to come back in whether or not you are there. Otherwise, your pet could be left outside to suffer in extreme weather, which no one wants.
It is also good to keep in mind that this could be better for your house, as a pet that is trapped in a house is more likely to cause damage to the furniture and other items in the home. Most people would prefer that their dogs do their business outside rather than in the house and that their cats use a tree as a scratching post rather than the expensive couch in the living room.
The sliding glass pet door offered by Advanced Window Products is great for this purpose. We can replace either the entire door or just insert a glass panel in the door with the pet door built in. The door will function just like it did before, only now your pet will be able to come and go as they please. The cat door is made of insulated safety glass and will not cost you money by letting out warm or cold air like many pet doors do. The flap is soft and flexible, unlike other pet doors that could potentially injure your pet, and seals very quickly, as well as securely, after your pet comes back inside the house. This prevents the elements and wild animals from outside making their way in.
Cat Doors for Sliding Glass Doors
There are benefits to having pet doors specifically for cats. If you have a cat that used to be a stray, for example, they might prefer to do their business in the grass rather than in the litter box. Alternatively, it might be better for you to put the litter box outside rather than inside, and your cat can have access to it through the cat door. If you have more than one pet, these doors can make it easier to manage meal times as well, since they will likely not all be in the house at the same time. Additionally, many people do not want their pets in certain parts of the house, and these doors will give them somewhere else to go and can give you a way to prevent them from getting to those parts of the house that are off limits.
