Because this option permits other cats or animals to enter your property, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a little by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other cat in the area who has a similar style of collar can easily gain access to your house when using this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier. With this, an extra layer of security and control is established to make certain that only your furry companion gets access.

The next step-up in feline access security is to fit a cat flap that identifies your pet's own microchip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one cat). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is close by.

  1. Better Control: Advanced cat flaps, some of which are programmable, can be coordinated with your cat's microchip or a bespoke collar tag, ensuring that the flap is solely used by your cat and allowing complete management of their entry and departure.
  2. Less Litter Box Odours: Granting your cat outdoor access for toilet purposes could lead to a decrease in litter box usage, potentially requiring less frequent cleaning and reducing odours within your home.
  3. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps obviate the need for you to continuously watch over and open the door for your cat, reducing both your and your pet's stress levels, and allowing them independent exit and entry.

  5. Enhanced Security: Many cat flaps are equipped with locking mechanisms that can be set to allow entry only to specific cats or to keep unwanted visitors out. This feature enhances home security by preventing the entry of stray animals or potential threats.
  6. Convenience for Owners: Owners no longer find it necessary to break their regular daily patterns to let their cats in or out. This ease is especially pertinent for those juggling busy schedules or who have uneven work hours.
