The most basic form of cat flap, is just that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but allow the cat go through. Obviously, this is extremely basic, and will not be good enough for most Amble cat owners, who would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house, although it may be okay for an outhouse or shed door.

This simple model can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats to get into your house.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. Therefore any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars cannot leave or access your home. The drawback is that any other cat in the Amble area that has a similar model of collar might be able to get into your property when using this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner. With this, an extra layer of control and security is established to ensure that only your furry friend gets access.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to consider the type of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is close by.

Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a type that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a four way locking system. Which means it's got the capability to enable exit only, allow only entrance into your premises, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This offers complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the option to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the more advanced models.

Installing a cat flap on your own can be pretty easy if you have a solid timber door on your Amble property, and reasonable do-it-yourself capabilities. However, if it needs to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should under no circumstances even attempt it by yourself.

This might take one or two weeks to manufacture, however it is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've taken possession of your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. Your cat flap will then be fitted.

Cat flap weatherproofing is vital for upholding the safety and comfort of outdoor and indoor cats. A properly weatherproofed cat flap prevents wind, draughts and rain from seeping into the house, ensuring a dry and warm environment for the feline. Look for cat flaps designed with superior quality seals and insulating materials to create a tight barrier against the elements. Consider, additionally, the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension to shield the entryway from harsh climatic conditions. Routine maintenance, such as the inspection of seals for damage and deterioration, is vital to ensure the cat flap remains effective in offering a comfortable and weather-protected space for the cat.
