This simple design can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, however it is still far from ideal as it enables other animals or cats to enter your property.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap.

RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices because they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
