I'm updating again.

I don't like the Cat Mates.  I had my Cat Mates changed to ... Dog Mates (medium)!   Cheesy

It's not a matter of flap size.  It's totally a matter of door placement.  For example, for the door to be easy to use for Sunday, the Cat Mate should be placed lower on the door.  For it to be easy to use for Tuesday, the Cat Mate should be placed higher up on the door. 

That's why we needed more leeway from top to bottom so that everyone could use the door and it wouldn't be too high or too low.

DOG MATE PROS

It's soooo much more quiet when opening and closing!  Seriously night and day different.

It has an attachable part that locks into place - no way they can figure out how to take it off (knock on wood) and it also signals to them that the door is closed.

The flap has a part that is clear and you can look in and out from it, and the rest of the flap is that clouded plastic - this will make the grime much less noticeable.


DOG MATE CONS

It's so thick that it won't work on sliding doors (so I couldn't have the ones on my bathroom doors changed).


Things are so much better over here with the Dog Mates!  Yay!
