Interior Cat Doors – When Are They Useful?
The main use of interior cat doors is to provide your cat with easy access to certain parts of your house while keeping the door closed. This can be useful in many different situations, but the most common is keeping dogs and small children away from cat food and/or cat litter boxes.
By installing a cat door, the cat can easily pass through it, but the dog will not be able to, so the cat will know it is safe to go and eat or use the litter box.
Cat doors are very useful even if you don’t have a dog in the house. If you want to keep the doors in your house closed, but still allow your cat to roam around freely, installing a cat door is the way to go.
Types of Interior Cat Doors
Depending on where you place them, there are two types of cat doors:
- Cat Door for Door – these cat doors go on your doors and have the advantage that they are easier to install.
- Cat Door for Wall – cat doors can also be installed on walls, however, the installation process is more lucrative because you have to make a hole in the wall.
The Purrfect Portal Cat Door Features
The Purrfect Portal Cat Door is a cat door for inside doors that is available on Amazon. It fits both solid and hollow interior doors, 1.25″ to 1.75″ thick. It comes in white and is more secure than other cat doors because it is secured with 4 sturdy screws on each side of the door instead of relying on adhesives as other products do.
It also comes with a brush that lines the passage portion, which will provide your cat with a quick full-body brush every time it passes through it. The brush slides into a track that is designed to keep it securely in place. However, the brush is optional. You can also use the cat door with and without the brush.
The size of the Purrfect Portal Cat Door is 6″ x 7.2″ (with the brush) and 7.5″ x 10.3″ (without the brush), which makes it a good fit for small and large-sized cats alike. It can fit cats of up to 20 lbs. If your cat is larger than that, there is also an XL version of the Purrfect Portal Cat Door available.

How to Install the Purrfect Portal Cat Door
This interior cat door is very easy to install (in 30 minutes or less) because it comes with a template that you can use to cut the exact space needed.
Here are the main steps you need to follow:
- Unhinge your door and place it on a work table or on a support to keep it elevated for cutting.
- Use the template in the Purrfect Portal Cat Door pack to find the best place for the cat door on your interior door.
- Use a pencil to outline the template – this will serve as your cutting pattern.
- Use a jigsaw to cut on the penciled line to create the hollow portion of the cat door.
- Place the Purrfect Portal Cat Door sides A and B on each side and secure it with the four screws.
- Slide in the brush lining on the track inside of the cat door.
- Place the door back on its hinges and you are done.
