We have a hallway that separates our living and bedroom spaces. When we bought our home there wasn’t a door at the entrance of the hallway but our neighbor with the same floorplan had one. So it got us thinking that we may want to minimize the noise from watching shows in the evening (after our son went to bed). We were changing all our interior doors anyway so we just ordered an extra door for the hallway too.

The door worked perfectly except when the cats wanted through it. We were always having to interrupt our shows by opening the door for them. One of our cats (that has since passed away) sounded like she shoulder tackled the door to get us to open it. There was no ignoring it.

We came across this really cute cat door online and decided to buy it.

Mike cut the hole using a hand saw while the door was still attached. We probably should’ve taken it off first but oh well. It was tough getting through the solid core door and took about 30 minutes of cutting:

We are so glad we did this and wish we had done it sooner! The only negative thing is that you can hear sound from the living room more easily down the hall but it’s still worth it. (And yes, I know our door could use a fresh coat of paint.)
