This basic design can be slightly improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter your property.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. Therefore any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars cannot leave or access your house. The downside here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar might be able to get into your house when using this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an additional layer of security and control.
