Because this solution can allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. What this means is that any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot get into or leave your house. The drawback is that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your property when using this kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.

If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your Blackwater home. But, if you are intending to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should ask for outside help. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its security, strength and insulating properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsound.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as part of its construction where your cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take a week or two to manufacture. After construction, your old glass panel will be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. The installing of the cat flap will then be completed.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed in an external wall.
