This uncomplicated model is still far from perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to get into your home, however it can be slightly improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an IR, RF chip or magnet. Subsequently, any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars cannot leave or access your home. The fact that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar can get into your house, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.

Picking a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

This is really the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a week or so to produce. After construction, your old glass pane can be removed, and the brand new one put in. The cat flap will then be installed.
