It may seem too simple to work, but you just need to cut your own tailor-made cat door. Basically, a cat can get through any opening it can fit its head through. This usually works against us cat owners, since the beasties have a mind of their own and like to explore. This time, it may work in our favor. So: Measure cat head (breadth), add 1/4 inch to ...

Vinyl plank will allow the urine to seep underneath, unless you use a sealant on the joints/seams. Even if it is properly installed. Using sheet vinyl will work perfect for your application. The only way urine or any other liquid could get underneath would be if a hole/tear was made into the vinyl from mistreatment or from a big spill seeping in from under ...

No, a surge protector will not. An RCD (Residual Current Device) or GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) aka ELCB (Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker) are the devices that can provide protection, BUT you should be aware that nothing is 100% - these devices can fail... You should get the cords away from access by your pet, shielding or protective strips or ...

When I had cats, I used a doorway gate that they sell to keep small children away from steps or out of a room. The cat goes right through it but the dog can't. source

You can use cat tunnels that are elevated above where the dog is able to reach. Google has several images of cat tunnels at ceiling height, it is important to check for wires before installing elevated access ways, but cutting and patching holes in drywall is much easier then cutting and patching holes in doors. Also the dog will not try to dig their way ...

I'm going to try for an outside-the-box solution: How about a cat flap or cat passage _away from the door and above the dog's easy line of sight -- possibly from a shelf the cat can climb or jump to, with similar access on the other side of the wall? I think that would be something the cat could quickly learn to use but that simply wouldn't be an idea the ...

set the net back from the mouth of the waterfall in an area where the water is deeper and thus the current is weaker. be prepared to clean the net frequently.

It appears that the regulation for the angle of the window is the distance between the mounting screws for the rails in which the brace slides. The ideal work-around would entail removing the bottom screw from each side and inserting a metal shim that fits within the track below the slider. Return the screw and the slider cannot drop far enough to open the ...

Use chain link fence slats. It will prevent the dog from climbing the fence and also give you privacy.

You’ll need to expose area, clean with bleach and let air out for a day before installing new insulation then covering area. Kind of hard to visualize w/ out photo.

TLDR: Make GFCI protection a top priority. No, a surge protector definitely doesn't do that. GFCI (called RCD in Europe) The single biggest help is going to be GFCI protection. How exactly to apply that is beyond the scope of this question, but any receptacle such a cord is plugged into should be GFCI protected. Current normally flows in a loop (...

Add some planter boxes or some other pleasant looking obstruction to the 4 foot section. if you are not interested in planter boxes you could do something like a gas pipe railing I'm a gas fitter and I love the look of this stuff. But it may be a little costly if you want dense coverage like in the photo.

You can add an underlayment with vapour barrier, or just 6mil plastic vapour barrier underneath. Will protect the subfloor (wood) but not the vinyl seems. For occasional "accidents" this could work, and protect the subfloor from long term soaking.

Why not something like a baby play yard (also called baby fence or baby gate). Some of them are expandable and have adjustable footprints. Images and links provided as examples. Not an endorsment of any goods or source.
