The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat move through. The majority of Faversham cat owners would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although this could be okay for an outhouse or shed door.

This basic design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property, but it can be improved on slightly by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other cat in the area who's got a similar collar could perhaps access your property when using this type of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier that can be programmed by the home owner. Your feline friend is the sole one to get access, offering an additional layer of control and security.

A cat flap that's able to identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Faversham feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a micro-chip.

Being able to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you're buying. Most cat flaps sold today boast a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to permit only entry into your house, be locked fully, enable exit from your property only, or have two way exit and entry capability. This gives full control over how your cat flap works both throughout the day and during the night. The ability to perform different functions according to the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.

If you're fairly decent at DIY, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your Faversham home. But, if you're looking to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you ought to ask for outside assistance. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled carpenters who will be ready to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its security, strength and thermal properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Faversham cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current unit and put in an order for the new one. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this special pane to be made, but if you need a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. After construction, the old glass will be taken out, and the brand new one put in its place. It's now possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You'll have to find out what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single pane.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap installed in an external wall of your property in Faversham, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed successfully.

A neat square shaped hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to enable your furry friend to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Faversham - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your window, door or wall, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A good cat flap fitter in Faversham will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, window or door.

Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that's been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed correctly is essential. The glass panel will need to be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.

Cat flaps yield an array of benefits for both the cats and the people who own them:

  1. Independence for Cats: Cats are known for their independent nature, and cat flaps enable them to explore the outdoors, exercise, and satisfy their curiosity whenever they please. This increased freedom can lead to healthier and happier cats.
  2. 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.
  3. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps obviate the need for you to continuously watch over and open the door for your cat, reducing both your and your pet's stress levels, and allowing them independent entry and exit.
  4. Enhanced Security: Many cat flaps feature locking systems that can be tailored to admit only certain cats, effectively barring unwanted visitors. Such a feature augments the security of a home by hindering the entrance of stray animals and possible threats.
  5. Convenience for Owners: The obligation for owners to interrupt their day-to-day tasks to let cats outside or inside is no longer present. This benefit is particularly important for individuals with full schedules or irregular working hours.
