In regards to the plywood door Hazel I did not hinge it. I tacked a piece of 1 x 2 up the back just behind the door, and shorten the door to about 4 inches above the striker plate. I then fastened the string to the door handle and put a nail in the top of the little plywood door on the striker plate side, so I could pull the door to touch the 1 by 2 to stop it from falling out, or the door to be pushed wide open. On the other side I put a sliding pin that would go in the hole in the striker plate where the door latch went to stop the plywood door from falling out.

I was going to hang the towel down from the wood trim at the top of the door casing to cover the hole, and stop any of the cats that were thinking of jumping through that hole.
