Sounds like a great idea! My sister mentioned something like this, but we could not find one. any ideas where to look?

Didn't anyone try one of those collar-controlled pet doors? I'm not just dreaming about this product, right? I remember seeing it. Let me search for a a sample link.

Well here's one, but apparently it's not a good one. There are some others. Maybe overkill. Plus, perhaps it wouldn't stop the issue if the indoor cat followed directly behind the other one.

I should add, what I did when I had to keep the cat in one part of the house, was to set up a single standard safety gate that could swing open without having to remove it. It's actually not my favorite product but it does work adequately. There may be some better ones that cost more. But it's too short of course by itself. So, I added a couple of spring-tension curtain rods, strategically spaced above it. These are easy to put up and take down in just a few seconds once adjusted to the right length. For a real jumper maybe 3 are called for. Just make sure there's nothing the cat can climb up on within reach of the gate. And make sure the cat can't jump between the barriers.

I would just like to mention that one of my cats nearly died from eating fiberglass screen from a window years ago. {Imagine what fiberglass screen will do to your kitty's intestine.even my vet didn't think my cat was going to live.it was a miracle he survived.}

I imagine my kitty was chasing a fly, scratched the screen, proceeded to nibble the frayed ends until he ate enough to leave a large egg sized hole in the screen.

When I needed to seperate a cat, I put a wooden screen door in using cabinet-sized hardware and the small hook and eyes to keep it closed.one on each side. Before I installed the door, I removed the fiberglass screen and replaced it with aluminum screen.

I think installing the velcro for that metal door would cause more damage than installing a small wooden strip on each side of the doorway to support a normal screen door. Easier to repair a few small screw holes than drywall peeled off from gluing on a velcro strip, JMO.

I have also stacked gates three high when I needed an extra room divided off temorarily.worked well.and no damage at all.
