The most basic style of cat flap, is just that. A sheet of bendable material fixed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to go through, but keep the elements out.

This basic model is still a long way from being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a way to get into your property, nonetheless it can be improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to access or leave your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The drawback is that any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar can still get into your home with this kind of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products as they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

The kind of cat flap that's able to identify your cat's own microchip, is the next level in feline entry security. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
