I opened a window on my garage just wide enough for the cat to get through.
Most of the opening is blocked off with a small sheet of plywood leaving
just enough of a hole for the cat.  She has to jump up of course but
there is a workbench on the other side of the window that we leave clear
so she's got a landing spot.

It's been that way for five years and I haven't seen any coons in there.
I don't think we get possums up here and skunks are rare.  But we
have had quite a coon problem at times.

I think I had to show it to her once, after that she got it.  She likes
to come in when I am in the garage, visit me then go check the attic
for critters.
