Ugh, my cat!

On STX - Does anyone know where I can get my sliding patio door re-screened? Darn cat has recently taken to climbing it and has put a few tiny holes in it now. As it is a rental I want to be sure to take very good care of everything and replace what is needed. I will also be headed to Kmart to pick up a water gun to deter this behavior any further. 🙂

Bunkers does excellent work. Maybe not the cheapest, but good quality.

If the holes are very small and unless you're vacating the place now, best to get water gun now (I use an old spray bottle) to dissuade cat and leave the repair until you leave. You can buy patch kits at any hardware store and then have the door re-screened when you vacate.

Bunkers of St. Croix are the best and have a selection of screen materials.

I use Centerline Window company Frederiksted, near the Police station in Mars Hill...next to the school bus parking lot.
they are good, fast, and reasonable.

It's not hard to do, watch a youtube video or two (here is one). My big dog who had separation anxiety pretty bad went through my slider screen enough times to make me a pro at replacing it. If the holes are small, just get the little patch kits which basically stick onto the existing screen. If not, measure and get screen to fit the door, pick up a spline tool, and if the spline in the door is old and dried out, some spline. The spline tool is cheap and makes the job a LOT easier. Using a screw driver or a butter knife is time consuming and it's easy to make a mistake and cut your new screen by accident.

My girlfriend had a cat once that loved to use the litter box and then jump up on the dinner table. Also loved to climb (and shred) curtains. Tried the high pressure hand held plant sprayer to no avail. A small, remote activated shock collar with the ability to tone or shock solved the problems in .005 nanoseconds. Best $150.00 I ever spent! No, it's not cruel,....I used it on myself before I put it on the cat. Uncomfortable but not painful.

We have a lot of screens in our house along with cats inside and outside and dogs outside, not a good combination. I've used every type of screen that as available on island and none of them stood up to the test of our animals including metal. I recently found and purchased a roll of "Pet Resistant Screen" from the company below. Ive done all six of the mahogany screen doors on our gallery and the two on the front porch. These things are bullet proof! I defy anyone and I mean anyone to hold a piece of this material and try to rip it.
