I had raccoons come thru my cat door. Eventually had to move to a key door - works with magnets attached to the cat collar.

One of my friends had a squirrel get in through her doggy door all by itself. She couldn't get it out and had to call a service called "Adirondack Dundee" to catch the squirrel! (She lives in the Adirondack Mountains) They said it happens all the time with doggy doors.

Haven't had a problem like that yet- we've had it a year and a half...but our door is not at ground level. Maybe that makes a difference?

Real feel- good story, nothing to do with a doggy door, but thought it worth posting :-)
Wow, this story is incredible! Breaks my heart that one didn't make it

Wow, that's amazing. What a mother's love can do. Sad about Amparo, but Mom certainly did all she could for them.

At 20+ years remove, it seems funny to me too. At the time, I don't think I thought so, though!

Wish I could have a doggie door- but we have coyoties, hawks and vultures (not to mention rattle snakes) so I will always have to go out with my babies. . . no problem, my pleasure. . .

Ok, so I've had my doggie door for about two weeks. Ci Ci bats at the door repeatedly as if she can't figure out how to open it. If I go outside she fly through the door to get to me no problem. What gives?

This is what my Havanese does when he wants his big English Shepherd brother to go outside with him. He rarely will go outside by himself ! Bogie really has trained Winston well. He will just go to the doggie door and hit it a couple times and Winston will come running and Bogie will back out of the way and let Winston go out first and then he will follow him outside.. So maybe CiCi just wants some company.. Lol.. Which kind of defeats the purpose.. I'm sure she will get the hang of it..

Wow, so she is trying to train me to go out and play with her. Now I understand what is going on. Game on Ciara!
