Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texasannie52 Cat Door for Sash Window
I have a very large cat weighing Birman Cat weighing in around 18 lbs. He was too big for an ordinary cat box and boy did he stink when he went - there was also a mess on the floor as he never learned to clean his feet.
Since I rent a home, I considered all the options including putting in a hole in the back door to allow him to pass into the yard, but on the other hand that would also allow the Pomeranian to go outside too and that wouldn't work. Option 2 was to buy plywood, a cat door and install that - but it would be ugly and that wouldn't be allowed... while searching for cat doors, I came across the Cat Door for a Sash Window and ordered it from Home Depot online.
I first ordered the larger window size of these and by the time it arrived, I realized that it was too big for my windows as I live in an older home and hadn't gotten the right measurements. Took back the one I received to the Galveston Home Depot without any problems and then reordered the correct size which is the 33" to 38" window. It arrived within 3 days, or about 2 days earlier than expected. Took the cat door/window our of the packaging, walked over the window and put it in without tools - no problems, no hassle. Worked like a charm and looks good in my window.
The window is white painted aluminum with the glass inserts, the cat door has four settings to keep cat in; cat out; locked no entry; and open go as you will. Once set up, I spent maybe 15 minutes stuffing cat in from both sides of the window to teach him about where the kitty pot was now. The cat window it is located from the outside at least 5 feet off the ground. He jumps from the front porch to the ledge to reach the cat door and seems to be happy with the whole process now, or at least he isn't talking back at me about his litter needing cleaning.
The window works by springs located on either end and the screw downs on the front side. You set the cat window in, push in each side and tighten the screw down to hold within the window by spring tension. I highly recommend this to anyone with a cat that wants to get rid of the litter in the house. It could be placed in an area where the cat goes onto the back porch or screened area. Does a great job at keeping the cool air in and the hot air out.
I did secure the top of the window with window locks for further security as I am old lady; my landlord is happy and so am I - no more cat litter or smell in the house from Tippi Canue!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laceycat1 Perfect for a "chubby" cat!
A perfect product for a window cat door. Easy to install, easy entry/exit for cat, no air leaks, and minimal obstruction of view out the window. My cat Larry is very happy!

This cat door is easy to install. It is spring-loaded so it fits snugly inside your window frame and is adjustable and locks in place by turning the knobs. The hard plastic door swings freely and has a variety of locking options. I also like the hard plastic door better than the vinyl ones as they warp over time. It also blends in well with my window. Good quality and design.Very satisfied with this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by catperson High quality product
This is a very nice window insert. It's a bit pricey, but it is sturdy and nice looking. The only drawback is that the door is free hanging without rubber surround as most pet doors have, so in a strong wind, if it's not locked, it could blow open, allowing cold air in.

I was amazed at the quality! I easily installed it in my apartment window. The door is very durable, and my two cats love having access to the screened porch. Absolutely love this cat door!
