Cat Flap Fitter Somerton Somerset (TA11): The installation of a cat flap to an external wall or door in your house in Somerton, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. Cats tend to get grouchy and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam free. When granted instant access to the world outside with , your cat has a far better chance of staying fit and healthy. If you opt to go with the cat flap option, you'll then have to determine what kind of cat flap would be best.
The most rudimentry form of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material placed over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat go through. Most Somerton cat owners would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this could be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door.
This standard design can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, but it's still a long way off being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot get into or leave your property. The point that any other moggy in the area who has a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
The next level in feline entry security is to consider a cat flap that identifies your pet's own micro-chip. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will allow multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a micro-chip.
When you're purchasing a cat flap, you must ensure that it is of a design that can be locked into position. For extra security, nearly all cat flaps boast a four way locking system these days. This allows your cat flap to permit exit from your home only, be locked fully, enable only admittance into your property, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This offers full control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night. The ability to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
Fitting a cat flap on your own can be fairly simple if you've got a solid timber door on your Somerton property, and respectable do-it-yourself abilities. On no account should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation project.
