Because this solution can allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to leave or get into your property unless it is equipped with this special collar. The point that any other cat in the Redcar area that has a similar model of collar could possible get into your home, is the downside with this kind of cat flap.

This new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut as part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have received your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
