CATHOLE® Classic Model
We introduced the Classic Model in 1999. Over 80,000 have been sold and our customers love them! The frames are made of furniture grade Baltic Birch. The Classic Model is shipped with all of the fasteners required. You use the TEMPLATE to cut the opening in your door, fasten the frames to the door, insert the brush and reinstall the door.
The brushes we use are very durable. However, we have had a few customers ask for replacements of their Classic brush. (Some dogs chew on the brush). We sell two replacement brushes for $25 (this includes USPS Priorty Mail shipping). You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request replacement brushes.
The photos below show how customers have stained and painted the door to match their decor.
We have 3 cats and this is the second cat door we have bought from chewy. All 3 cats took to it immediately! And, it keeps the dog out!! Also, it looks very stylish and the brush is a definite bonus for ‘automatic’ grooming as they go in and out. Highly recommended!! I do want to let Chewy know that the brush was broken when we recently opened our most recent package. Is it possible to replace just the brush? That would be great!
I bought this cat door so our cat would be able to get into the mud room to use the litter box when the door is shut. I installed it all by myself while watching my 3 year old and 10 month old. It took less than 30 minutes start to finish! I have never used a jigsaw and even that was super simple! I 100 % recommend this cat door! My cat hasn’t used it but my poodle mix figured it out right away! I plan on installing more in other rooms.
I think this is a great product. Unfortunately I didn’t measure my fat cats. They can not fit through it. I will have to send back and see if they have a larger one.
My big boy (16 lbs,) took to this immediately (after I showed him how to go thru the first time.) It’s “business” as usual now inside my laundry room with the door always closed.
This item is awesome. Looks great, cats use it no problem. I can now close the closet door where their litter box is and my bedroom door so I can sleep at night. Highly recommend.
My 12 pound cat uses it and now We can keep the litter box behind a closed door, and out of reach of the dog.
We have 2 large dogs and a small cat. She needed to be able to have her safe space while eating and using the liter, and we needed to keep the dogs away from her food! The install was super easy and it looks really nice!
my cats have their litter box in the mudroom, with a cat door connection into the furnace/laundry room, which connects to the living room. which means a lot of noise and an lot of traffic. i wanted that door closed all the time: the door needed a vent at the top and a cat-through at the bottom. i cut the hole high to accommodate a bookcase, so they’d pass thru onto the lowest shelf. it all works perfectly and they like their new secret passage.
This is my second cathole. This is a super item and easy to install. Brush is added benefit. Keeps dog out of cat litter.
