So the cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be made, but if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. As soon as your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The fitting of the cat flap can then be completed.
