    We adopted a cat 3 weeks ago. She’s almost 3. She learned how to use the cat flap in a day but the problem is she pushes the door with her paws first, as opposed to her head, and she got her paws stuck in the flap door 3 times already!! Thankfully we were home and heard her squeals but I don’t know what to do to solve this problem as it’s likely to happen again.

    But what do you do if your cat has never had any interest in treats

    Great tip, gonna try it. I had a cat-flap for years, and its flap was slightly broken. Cats had no issue with it. Now I had to replace the door, and installed a new cat flap with a whole flap, and for some reason they can’t figure it out…

    we have a dog flap because my other cat couldn’t fit through the normal cat flap and we still have it and my new cats one of them can use the cat flap ok and the other has a legitimate phobia of it

    ok, but how about getting out?

    Some good tips here, I would consider installing a cat flap. Most cats I’ve had love exploring cardboard boxes, so that should work well. ❤️😻🐾🐈👍

    Well my four cats clearly aren’t very intelligent. It’s been a year and they still can’t figure it out. 😑 🤣

    I google this and my cat just went right through at 0:42 🤣
    The cat door in my house was there when we got there so free cat door 🤣. But they had installed a blocker thing so it couldn’t be fully opened. We just removed it 3 days ago.
