As this option can allow other cats or creatures to enter your house, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your house, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar can still access your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
