The simplest form of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to provide protection from the weather, but permit the cat pass through. Most cat owners in Prestonpans would no doubt prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property, although this may be okay for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.

Because this option can allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your house, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. Again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, since any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar can still get into your house. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.

The next level in feline access security is to fit a model of cat flap that identifies your cat's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is nearby.
