Re: now cat door

I think I've seen some cat doors that operate on electronic control of some
sort.  They only open for the animal wearing the collar that controls it.
However, mine don't wear collars.  I worry about them getting caught on
fences, etc. If the collars loose enough for them to squeeze out in a jam,
they'll squeeze out of 'em on purpose, too.   Of  course there are the
breakaway types, but that gets pretty expensive cuz they keep breaking away
from their collars and I have to buy new ones.
