    The Way Cat Doors Work


    If you decide to have a house cat you may want to consider investing in one or two cat flaps depending on the size of your house. Cat flaps are popular because they let you continue doing what you were doing without having to interrupt it just because your cat wants to go out again.

    However, they are complicated enough to install that you want a professional do the job for you in order to ensure that the cat flap will be well installed and that it won't let water in when it rains.

    Careful with 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. The standard placement for them is near the bottom of the door where your cat can walk through without having to jump up and balance on a ledge.

    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.

    Other Cats

    Pay attention; although burglars and thieves can't go inside your house using cat doors, other cats in the neighborhood will have no problem whatsoever, and you might not want that. 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.

    These doors are locked by magnets, which are rendered inactive by the presence of your cat's collar; however, they will keep the door shut even if another cat tries to push it.

    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.
