As this solution will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it is not at all recommended, though it can be improved on a little by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or access your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The point that any other moggy in the Leyland area that has a similar collar can still get into your home, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier. An additional layer of control and security is achieved, guaranteeing that only your furry friend gets access.

However, if it has to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt to tackle it yourself. This kind of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be happy to take on such a task.

It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel.

The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

A reputable Leyland cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. As part of its structure this new double glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This might take a week or so to produce, however it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. When your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. Your cat flap can then be mounted.

Wall Installation - If you don't really want to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an external wall. Needing far more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is certainly best left to the pros, if it is to be completed successfully.

With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut out of your wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at either end to allow your cat to come in and out as it pleases.

This protective measure doesn't just enhance their overall quality of life but also contributes to their safety.

The process of weatherproofing a cat flap entails the choice of suitable design characteristics and materials capable of enduring diverse climatic conditions. Top-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap are crucial to ensure a pleasant and dry environment by preventing rainwater from seeping indoors.
