The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a flexible material is hung over the gap to offer some protection from the weather.

Since this option permits other cats or animals to enter your home, it is not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. No animal will be able to leave or get into your property unless it's fitted with this special collar. The reality that any other moggy in the Brechin area that's got a similar style of collar will be able to get into your property, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. This makes sure that only your purrfect companion gets access, providing an additional layer of control and security.

The next step-up in feline access security is to consider the kind of cat flap that recognises your pet's own micro-chip. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.
