This uncomplicated model can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, but it's still a long way off being perfect as it enables other cats or animals to get into your home.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. This means that any animal that does not have a special collar can't get into or leave your property. Once again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar will be able to access your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices as they can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Access is limited to your furry friend alone, delivering an extra layer of security and control.

The next level in feline entry security is to use the type of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip. You have to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one cat it will take multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.

Cat flaps offer a number of advantages for both owners and their cats:

  1. A Reduction in Door Scratching: The frustration of waiting to be let out and in can lead to destructive scratching behaviour near doors. Cat flaps provide an alternative exit and entry point, potentially reducing this undesired behaviour.
  2. Reduced Litter Box Odours: Outdoor access for your cat may mean less frequent litter box use, leading to fewer cleanings and potentially reducing unpleasant odours in your dwelling.
  3. Enhanced Security: Many cat flaps are equipped with locking mechanisms that can be set to allow entry only to specific cats or to keep unwanted visitors out. This feature enhances home security by preventing the entry of stray animals or potential threats.
  4. Better Control: You can synchronise some high-tech cat flaps with your cat's microchip or a special collar tag, making them programmable to ensure only your cat has access, thus offering complete oversight of their comings and goings.
  5. Convenience for Owners: The necessity for owners to pause their daily routines to allow their cats entry or exit is eliminated. This proves especially advantageous for those with busy lives or irregular timetables.
  6. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps alleviate the burden of constantly having to monitor and open the door for your cat, reducing stress for both you and your furry friend, who can now independently enter and exit without waiting for your help.
  7. Independence for Cats: Cat flaps offer cats, inherently independent, the opportunity to explore, exercise, and satisfy their curiosity as they wish, which can result in increased happiness and health.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flap weatherproofing is vital for upholding the comfort and safety of outdoor and indoor cats. Both the feline and the occupants benefit from a dry and warm environment due to a well-weatherproofed cat flap, which prevents wind, cold draughts and rain from seeping into the house. To create a tight barrier against the elements, search for cat flaps designed with high-quality seals and insulating materials. An extra option to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions is the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension. The cat flap's ability to provide a cosy and weather-protected space for your cat is upheld through regular maintenance, including checking seals for deterioration.
