It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane.

Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

A specialist cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazed pane and have a local glazing company make a new purpose made pane. As a part of its construction this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. When your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The cat flap will then be put in.
