  • aufschieben = to slide open Nov 5 '16 at 8:03
  • Based on context it would mean " The cat carefully (slowly) shoves (pushes) the door towards the hallway."

"Aufschieben" usually means "to postpone" but in this context "to slide open". In my understanding, it implies that the door is a sliding door. Although the author may have intended that the cat pushes a regular door open by squeezing itself through the gap, but it can be expressed better.
