Facial recogntion cat door

Allow the cats you want, but not the pests they want

So, automatic cat doors are already a thing, and pet facial recognition security cat doors may or may not be a thing, but my thing is a thing that not only recognises individual cats and unlocks as appropriate, but also rejects any cat (even familiar ones) if they're carrying other animals, or pieces of other animals.

Because I'm sick of all the dead half-a-mouses I keep finding in my home every morning.

       // If you have a black cat, won't it also let in gorillas?   

       So long as the gorilla isn't carrying a dead mouse in its mouth, I'm OK with that.

       //dead mouse// I'd almost prefer that to the live "takeout" the housepests pull in occasionally ("Hey hey hey looka what I got... I'll just set it down and... damn, where'd it go ?")

       If you find any live half-a-mouses, keep them. They may be worth something ...   

       We suggest a sharp guillotine blade attached above the cat door. Observation suggests that half-cats don't bring in half-mice.

       You could always keep the half-mice and make pairs.

       You can teach your cat to use a remote door opener.

       Yes; you'll have someone's "i" out with that one.

       Play nice [Ian].   

       I can empathize with you [b153b], my cat drops the lovely bits on my yoga mat, cause he isn't allowed out. Not nice. I suggest you get a camera and check who is coming in the cat door before allowing entry. "DROP THE HALF OF MOUSE I SEE IN YOUR CUTE LITTLE KITTY MOUTH OR YOU CAN'T COME IN." Might work.

       I certainly considered pairing the halves. The problem is that I can only ever find front halves, and tails.   

       It always seems to be the way when you collect spare parts. Dozens of all the other pieces, but none of that one piece you really need.   

       In this case I seem to have a serious mouse-butt deficit. I wonder if there's somewhere on the internet where I could set up some sort of exchange.

       //my cat drops the lovely bits on my yoga mat, cause he isn't allowed out.// If he's not allowed out, where does he get mouse parts from? Does he have them delivered?

       3 different hypotheses for that. 1. Some petri dish where mouse cell experimentation has gone awry and they've taken over the lab. 2. 3D printers can do amazing things these days. On the other hand, you could consider 3D printing some mouse butts to fill the gap... 3. Amazon drones of course.
