As this option permits other cats or animals to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced to some extent by keeping the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that does not have a special collar cannot get into or leave your home. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar could perhaps get into your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier. Only your furry friend gets access, thus adding an added layer of control and security.

The type of cat flap that is able to identify your cat's microchip, is the next stage in feline entrance security. The micro-chip details are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). The flap is unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.

Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate.
