Tell me more about the PlexiDor cat door!

The PlexiDor cat door is intended for cats up to 24 lbs and dogs up to 9 lbs. The weight limit for cats is so much higher because they’re built differently than dogs and move differently than dogs. A 24 lbs dog needs much more space than a 24 lbs cat.

PlexiDor small pet doorIf you have a dog over 9 lbs, check if they can pass through an opening that is 6 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches through cutting a hole that size in a piece of cardboard and enticing the dog to go through. If it doesn’t seem comfortable with the space, go up to a medium size PlexiDor.

The door is available for installation through a house door or a wall, or can be installed with a glass kit. The sturdy aluminum frame is available in white, bronze, or brushed aluminum.

The PlexiDor cat door is different than the other sizes:

  • It has a single-pane design instead of saloon style doors
  • It doesn’t come with a security plate – the opening is too small for
    anyone to get through
  • It has a different lock than the larger doors

The larger PlexiDor models come with a lock and key. The small door has a lock that allows some different settings. It can be:

  • Open
  • Locked
  • Open in one direction only, that is, allow your pets to come in, but
    not go out again. Or, allow them to go out but not come back in.
