Many cat owners nowadays keep their cats indoors full-time, but we still spot plenty of non-feral cats roaming the countryside. If you live with an indoor/outdoor cat who enters and exits the house through a cat door, you will enjoy Ridding the House of Errant Raccoons and Other Animals | NYTimes.
To keep out unwanted critters, the safe move is to upgrade to an electronic programmable system, such as the Cat Mate Elite Selective Cat Flap. Only animals with an electronic collar ID tag programmed into the door can enter or exit.

Walking more than one dog at the same time can present a challenge. Two leashes inevitably get tangled up together. Even when using many dual leashes, it's near impossible to control one dog separately from the other.
The lightweight and slim retractable Dual Doggie Pet Leash has a soft rotating handle that prevents tangles. Use the color coded buttons to stop the dogs separately.

Most dog owners have encountered fenced-in areas, such as wrought-iron fences, which have gaps large enough for their dog or puppy to squeeze through. An Escape Preventing Dog Harness slips on a dog like a common harness, but has an integrated rigid 10 1/2" long cross-bar that spans well beyond the width of the pet, preventing him/her from slipping out between fence railings.
The lightweight harness won't inhibit your dog's movements and allows passage through most standard pet doors. It is made from a 100% woven nylon that pets won't find irritating, and has adjustable straps to ensure a snug fit.
