Clever cats and retractable screens on french doors

9 years ago

We are moving into a new home in the city and are planning to replace the sliders to our patio with double, outward opening french doors. The problem is the cats. We have Phantom retractable screens now, thinking we'd keep the cats as indoor cats. Luckily we live in the country, because on about week 2 they figured out how to snake under the screen without releasing the magnetic closer.

Does anyone have framed screens (the cats don't climb the window screens very much but they aren't even phased by the taut screening on the bottom of the Phantom) on their outward opening screens?
