Do you know that pet door invention is done by Sir Isaac Newton, the famous scientist who invented gravity. Even though it is not officially confirmed about Newton’s invention of pet doors, the story goes as this. Sir Issac Newton used to get troubles with a cat family always knocking and scratching at his room at home so he called a woodworker and made two holes on the wooden wall as one large one for the adult cat and a small hole for kittens, not thinking about the possibility of the kittens following their mother through the large hole.
However, two of the major biographers of Newton never cited anything as Newton had kept any pets. Yet, this story came from someone anonymous in the Newton’s social circles at Trinity as J. M. F. Wright. Even if the story is true or false, now pet doors are so common and there are plenty of varieties of the same available in the market.
