comment How do I ensure the bathroom door stays open unless someone is inside?
I like having them all open. I haven't really done anything about this. I just leave a boot in front of the door when I remember, and leave it wide open so it doesn't catch the wind, and the cat is big enough now that I'm not so worried about her.

Could you add a picture of this? It's not a spring hinge, but a spring added to the hinge? Like a spring that gets squished as the door closes? similar to diy.stackexchange.com/a/24944/3338?

Where's the CDC safety hazard from? Wikipedia says it's mostly harmless: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diatomaceous_earth#Safety_considerations More citations needed, I think

@DA01: DE is 90% silica, so "contains silica" isn't really the right terminology.

@Doresoom: Supposedly that kills sea otters or something.

This is a great idea. I never found the right spring hinges. This seems much easier to implement. I would guess that the springiness of the foam gets ruined after a while, though? She's smart enough to open a door if it has a pull-down handle with something attached for her to grab onto and put her weight onto. :D

comment Is there a reasonably priced dog door that allows dogs through but stops cats?
Teach the dog to pull on a handle that the cat can't reach or isn't heavy enough to activate?

@Stephen: That's why I asked the question. My ideas seemed too elaborate.

This seems like the best answer, so I'll accept it even though I haven't found the parts to implement it yet. She locked herself in the bathroom the other day, but nothing bad happened.

Where do you find these hinges? I think everything I've found keeps the door closed, not open
