    You'll be able to cut through plastic hollow door to install a cat door flap.

    Since the door is hollow -

    "You've got a hollow-core or steel door-Best bet is to purchase a 'self-framing' pet door."

    Use a Jig saw with a metal cutting blade, it works best."

    Yes you can install door for your cats.A good quality door has expandable alum. frame so there is no hollow core showing,it's all capped off..As far as the door being opened,try shutting the door every few days a little more may be about 6 inches each time..Plus if you get a kitty door that has a clear flap that should help......

    Before you start cutting holes in your doors, better check with the housing authority; they might not like it.
