Cat Flap Fitter Bottesford Lincolnshire (DN16): Installing a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Bottesford house gives your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats tend to get grouchy and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam free. Having accessibility to outside world with will help your furry friend to stay fit, both physically and mentally. If you choose to go with the cat flap option, you will then have to decide what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but let the cat pass through. Most cat owners in Bottesford would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although this could be acceptable for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This uncomplicated design is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other creatures or cats a way to get into your home, nevertheless it can be somewhat improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated 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 fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. The drawback is that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar will be able to access your property when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products as they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
A cat flap that is able to identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in Bottesford feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in position is important no matter what cat flap you're purchasing. Currently, nearly all cat flaps available on the market have a 4-way locking system for extra security. Which means that the cat flap can be fully locked, permit exit from your home only, allow admission into your premises only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This will give you alternatives for all times of day and night, to have control over how your cat flap operates. The facility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements is also an option with some of the high end models of cat flap.
