Default Door Dashing

How do you stop door dashing with a cat?

This cat waits until there is just a slight crack to slip through and run outside. So he did this last night and me being the dumb person I am, I assumed it was Artimis so had no worry about opening the door wider or letting him go out. Because Art will be right with me.

So the Cat ran outside, I ran inside grabbed her bag of food and David went to try to lure her to him. But she found a mouse or rabbit to chase after and was off! We spent about 10 minutes with flashlights and a bag of food in the freezing cold weather looking for her.

I was about to give up but she ran from behind somenes car. So we started following her trying to get her to come to us. I'm sure people thought we where peeping toms how close we had to get to their houses/windows. But it's not like I wanted to knock on their doors at 1am in the morning to tell them we where just catching out cat.

Anyways, she kept bounding around like she was having so much fun and just stopped and laid down. I think her paws got cold cause she didn't even move when I walked up to her and picked her up and brought her back inside.

So now we have a cat who has tasted freedom and she is so small I don't know how to keep her from dashing again. Any suggestions?

Also, she must of been an indoor-outdoor cat in her previous house because she seemed completely at home outside as well.
