Last summer I adopted my very first cat :) Back when the weather was a little warmer, we didn't mind having the doors between the garage and the rest of the house open all the time, so miss whiskers could go wherever she pleased. However, as it's winter now, we keep the doors closed to avoid cooling down the entire house.
To allow the little lady to keep roaming around freely, a pet flap is in order! Since this flap is meant for indoor use, it doesn't have to be weatherproof, so I figured.. why not make one :) Let's get started!
While I used somewhat more specialized woodworking tools (e.g. a bandsaw), this project can be made just as well using basic tools and materials that you can find in just about any hardware store. Something to note as well is that the measurements I'm using here are suitable for small/medium-sized cats. To adjust the pet flap's measurements to your pet, you can browse for a suitable commercial pet flap and use the dimensions listed on their website as a reference.
