Thus, a theory was postulated - if a solid barrier was placed in front of the cat door, it would prevent a cat from standing in front of the door and opening it. With the barrier in place, the cat's body would block the door from opening. This theory seems promising, so the fourwhitepaws' engineers got to work...
I happen to have an old window that fit fairly well in front of the door, so I placed it so that the cat door still swings open, but a cat can't be in front of the door and have it open at the same time. Cats entering come inside the door and immediately turn right to enter.

Oh ho! The plot thickens! I'm on the edge of my seat, waiting for the final denouement. Very clever of you and your engineers, btw.ReplyDelete
Oliver I would not bed against you but I hope this one works!ReplyDelete
we'll be watching Oliver! MOLReplyDelete
hmmmm - seems ingenius - hope it works :)ReplyDelete
He will just have to develop a new technique. My money is on Oliver!ReplyDelete
Cats are very flexible...I bet Oliver will find a way ;-)ReplyDelete
My cat learned how to open a retractable screen door in the same way. We couldn't believe it when we saw he had opened the door. So we had a piece of perspex made to slide into two grooves either side of the door. Works like a charm and we can have the back door open to let the breeze through.ReplyDelete
Well, that Oliver is a smart dude, so maybe he'll think of something else. M says that looks like a great idea tho and she hopes it works for you./ReplyDelete
I hope this will keep Oliver from escaping!ReplyDelete
How has it worked? Really wanting to know although I know your heart and mind is on MK right now.ReplyDelete
now that is a very clever fix..ReplyDelete
