    Explaining Cat Doors

     

    If you have one or more pet cats, then you might want to install one or two or even more cat flaps for both your and your pets' convenience. They are very practical because they give more freedom to your cat while at the same time saving you the trouble of opening the door every single time.

    It pays to have a professional install them so that they won't let water in whenever it rains; it's also important to make sure they're well fixed to the door so that they won't fall off with time.

    Think About Burglars

    When fitting cat flaps it is also important to think about the security of your house, and by careful positioning of the cat flap you will ensure that you do not compromise the security in anyway. That's one reason why it's usually better to place them at the bottom or almost at the bottom of the door, which also lets your cat walk through them without jumping.

    Although of course, nobody expects a burglar to shrink to the size of a cat and use the door to get in, if cat doors were a bit higher, they could try to use them to reach in and go for the handle.

    Not Your Cat

    By having cat doors in your house you are potentially allowing all the cats in the neighbourhood to come in to your home, which may not be something you are happy with. If you want to avoid this situation, you can do so by getting a cat flap that is activated with a collar worn by your cat, thus making sure that it will only open for your ct.

    Normally working on a magnet, this means that the cat flap remains locked shut if approached by another cat, but when your cat comes near, the magnet on the collar releases the cat flap lock and he is allowed to pass through

    cat flaps will let your cat come in and out as it pleases without your help. If installed properly, they won't represent a safety risk. There are even some cat doors that will only open for your cat.
