As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a significant 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 inside it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it is fitted with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar can gain access to your house when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet. Providing an additional layer of control and security, this makes sure that only your furry companion gets access.

The kind of cat flap that is can be operated by your pet's own microchip, is the next stage in Ellesmere Port feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. When your new glass panel arrives, the installer will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.
