Have you ever considered walking your cat on a leash? If you have been watching "My Cat From Hell" on Animal Planet with Jackson Galaxy, you would have seen him suggest this a couple of times. NY Times

There was a cat that was "returned" to the shelter where I volunteer after he was found outside. We contacted the owners and seems Raven was jumping the door when they were taking their dog for walks. I suggested a harness and leash and taking him with the dog so he would associate it with being allowed out but only at those times. She seemed interested in the concept. I haven't heard anything from them, but I hope it is working for them.

The same thing has happened w/Johnny since I started taking him in the backyard w/a harness and leash. He's become an incredible escape artist. I now have to pick him up when the doorbell rings, like you might a small dog or a toddler. LOL. But he loves going in the yard on a leash, and does well. Now he's always yelling to go out, esp. if I reach near the place where the leash hangs.
