I have a cat that tries to get into a bedroom in my house. He claws the the corner seem of the door opening to try and get into the room. He has pulled carpet up the size of a silver dollar. I am looking for a way to fix this and possibly put something their as a preventitive. I also do not want it to be too obvious, since this is a bedroom entrance.

First, either kill the cat or have it declawed!!! (Just kidding)

Go look in the very back of your biggest closet and cut out an area the same size as the damaged area, trim any rough edges on the damaged are, then trim your "new" piece of carpet to the same size,and then just glue it in place. this is of course if there is some sort of nap to the carpet.

As far as a preventative for future damage, you can go online and look up pet supply companies...there you find a mat that is designed to keep pets off of the couch by vibrating if any pressure is applied to it. Put it on the floor outside the door-That should work well to keep him away from the bedroom door.

I have seen this work in the past-so try it!

Good luck!
