The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

A trustworthy Wrexham cat flap fitter will diligently get the dimensions of your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into.
