I dont use the AC or the vents in my bedroom.. I blocked off all of them as in the winter time it lets in cold air.. and the wind here broke the cover on the ac unit on roof so we covered it permanently to never use again.. so I don't care about the venting I just need the door fixed..

A more practical option would be to hang a piece of carpet from the bottom of the door. Using screws and washers to affix the carpet to the door should be fairly simple.


Something that you may consider is attaching command hooks to the bottom of the door, cutting holes in the carpet and then hanging from the command hooks.
I would never ever replace the cat..I also have another cat and two dogs.. one day they will die and I wont' replace them.. I am too old now but for as long as I live in this unit I just need to find a fix for my door ..

(Mod Edit) I have a baby gate just high enough to block the opening but low enough I can step over it.

Even if you were to replace the door, you'd still hear the cat.

I think you need to find or invent an automatic wet food dispenser with a timer. . . or a dish that opens up at a certain time.


If you ever solve this problem please return and let us know.

no i wont.. I have a fan running all night which drowns it out in a small space.. as long as she can't get on to my bed I can't hear it from the front of the bus.. its only because my door is open and she can jump on my bed that I hear her..if my door was closed and my fan was on it would drown it out.. mostly.. at least hoping .. either that or can anyone tell me how to block out noise? don't say ear plugs they really hurt ears when sleeping and very uncomfortable..

Either retrain or replace the cat. Seems like a pretty straight forward solution to me. Oh yeah, as others have said, you could also replace two living creatures with the same satisfactory results!

I think if the cat slept in a crate it could not slip under the door.My dog likes his crate. Not sure if your cat will.
