Because this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your home, therefore keeping out some undesirable visitors. The point that any other moggy in the Shifnal area who's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your property, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to fit the kind of cat flap that identifies your pet's micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your microchipped pets to enter or exit.

Double Glazing Installation - If you employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave.

This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. This could take a week or so to manufacture, however it's really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you've obtained your new glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.
