This uncomplicated design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter your property, however it can be somewhat improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. What this means is that any animal without a special collar cannot leave or access your property. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar will be able to get into your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

The flap will be unfastened when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.
