As this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your property unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The downside is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar can access your house with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
