A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat pass through it. Naturally, this is very basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Birchwood, who would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although it could be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This uncomplicated model is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your property, however it can be improved on by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your house, therefore keeping out some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a pretty basic form of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar can still gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier. Access is limited to your feline friend alone, delivering an additional layer of security and control.

A cat flap that is can be operated by your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in feline entrance security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
