Since this option can allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be improved on to some degree by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet.
