The simplest type of cat flap is basically that. A hole in a door with a flexible piece of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but allow the cat go through. Whilst this could be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door, most cat owners in Wincanton would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.

As this option can allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

A step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. Subsequently, any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars can't get into or leave your property. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar will be able to get into your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet. Providing an additional layer of control and security, this ensures that only your purrfect companion gets access.

Installing a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in access security for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your microchipped pets to exit or enter.
