It is no secret how contrary cats can be; they want to go out and change their minds minutes later. Many cat owners have had the unfortunate experience of being woken up in the middle of the night by their cat so it can go out, only to fall back asleep and be woken up again by their cat wanting to get back in. It is no wonder then that so many cat owners choose to fit a cat flap. This simple solution allows your cat to come and go as it pleases and makes loving your pet so much easier.
The most basic type of cat flap is the simple plastic version which allows the door to be pushed open either from the inside or outside. This style of cat flap is cheap and easy to use but the obvious drawback is that it allows other cats to gain access to your house, and it can also be a security risk.
A solution to the basic cat flap problem is to choose a magnetic or infrared cat flap instead. This type of cat flap works because the cat wears a collar with a magnet or an infrared code attached. The collar triggers the cat flap to open when the cat approaches.
Petworld suggests the Cat Mate Electromagnetic Cat Flap, or if you want more options to customise your cat flap door, it recommends the Cat Mate 4 Way Locking Cat Flap.
