Product Details


If you're struggling to keep your dogs out of the litter box, restrain them from devouring the cat food, or just want your cat to have a safe space within your home, the Cathole cat door is the perfect solution. This interior cat door is a 4" x 6" rounded opening designed to allow access to cats only. Installing at the bottom of solid or hollow core doors, it prevents any larger household pets from entering. The inside perimeter of the opening is equipped with brush lining to groom your kitty as they enter and exit the indoor cat door, making this one of the most comfortable interior pet doors available to cats.

Installation Instructions

Step 1: Before removing the door, mark the desired position for the unit on the bottom of the door.

Step 2: Remove the door by pulling the hinge pins. Position a flat screwdriver to catch the top of the pin and tap upward with a hammer.

Step 3: Use the supplied "Door Hole Template" to trace the entrance hole outline.

Step 4: Use a jigsaw to carefully cut the entrance hole.

Step 5: Measure the thickness of your door and select the correct screws.

Please Note: If the door is 1-3/8" thick, use 3 of the short, black screws. If the door is 1 ¾" thick, use 3 of the long, silver screws.

Step 6: Insert 3 screws into the front of Frame A. Insert 4 pins into the back of Frame B.

Please Note: One end of the pin is tapered. This end inserts more easily.

Step 7: Align the frames on the opposite sides of the door and gently tighten the screws.

Please Note: Do not tighten any screws completely. Tighten each screw a few turns and move to the next. Continue until the frames are snug on both sides.

Step 8: Fold the brush and insert the middle section of brush into the top of the frame opening. Press the brush into place so that the tabs on the back of the brush rest on the lower screws.

Step 9: Press the wooden plugs into the countersunk screw holes and apply the desired finish. There are many attractive ways to decorate it to match your decor. You can paint, stain, or apply colorful decals/stencil patterns. Water-based poly-acrylics are durable and easy to use.

Step 10: Reinstall the door.

Really liked how you can finish it however you need, makes it so it almost totally invisible so its not an eyesore like other doors. Also it is just the right size for the cat and keeps the dogs out of the cat liter. Good non-expensive solution.

Cat loves it!

Super easy to install in my door and looks great - it was also easy to paint to match the color of our interior trim. The brush is a great bonus.....actually I think my cat likes the brush more than she likes the door. Great buy!

My kitten loves the door!

This is the perfect cat door for me. I have two dogs who love to eat the cat food (and other things cat related that I won't mention). Using this door allows my kitty privacy and keeps my doggies at bay. The instructions are vey simple. My son cut out the hole for me in just a few minutes and the installation took less than 15 minutes. My only negative is that the materials used didn't really reflect the price point. I've had it 3 months and it is working perfectly.
