I have a cat that is always ruining our screen door. Is there a place here in Ottawa, Ontario where I can buy a screen door protector?

Our screen was damaged, and when we went to purchase new screen material, I noticed that they had one that was supposed to be stronger for cats. It's not metal. Perhaps fiberglass? It is flexible, but stronger than the regular plastic kind. I seem to recall it was a bit more expensive than the regular screening material, but still looks new after several years. Perhaps this is a good option for you.
We buy wire mesh from the hardware store or from Lowes, and use that to cover the screen on our door. Just cut a piece slightly larger than the screen and attatch it to the door, using screws and washers.
We bought 2 screen doors that had the screens on the top and a solid panel on the bottom, put one on the front doorway and one on the back. Problem and its attendant frustrations, solved!
Bought one at Home Depot. It is heavy metal, enameled white and had pieces which stick out and can be screwed to a wooden door. Put one on a window as well to keep the cat from getting out. He kept pushing the screen with his head until it popped out. He got into too many fights, so he is now an indoor cat.
