Since this solution permits other creatures or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some extent by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. What this means is that any animal that does not have one of these special collars can't leave or get into your property. The downside is that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar can easily get into your property when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices and can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.

A model of cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in feline entry security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only allowing entry or exit to pets that have a microchip.
