The Kitty Peeper Entryway
There were several considerations that went into the entryway design for the Kitty Peeper. First, we had to create an entrance that a cat could enter and exit easily, even from a relatively narrow window sill. Second, we had to design something that would diminish air flow back into the room. Finally, we wanted to have an entryway that would afford the cat a sense of privacy (cats like that) while giving their human companions some visualization.,
Our overlapping flap system provides the perfect solution for all of these needs. The overlapping flaps allow the cat to enter the enclosure from virtually any angle--perfect for narrow window sills. In comparison, actual swinging pet doors require cats to enter at a relatively straight-on angle, and we wanted to avoid that problem.
The entryway flaps are mounted from the inside, and are fitted to extend slightly below the bottom lip of the entryway. This diminishes air flow from coming in from the outside in general weather conditions. In environments where the average temperatures can be quite cold at times, we also sell the Kitty Peeper Cold Weather Panel that snaps on to the front of the Peeper, further blocking air flow. Generally speaking however, from our own experience, and those of the customers we've talked to, suggest that using the Peeper year-round doesn't raise heating or A/C bills.
While the cat can feel a sense of privacy while lounging in the Kitty Peeper, humans will still be able to see their pet through the flaps, similar to what one sees when looking through a frosted shower curtain. It also allows your cat to "monitor" the interior room as well, without feeling closed off while inside the patio.
