Once again this is a relatively simple kind of cat flap, as any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar can easily gain access to your home.

So that your cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. This may take a week or two to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, your old glass panel will be removed, and the new modified one put in. The fitting of your cat flap will then be carried out.
