The Great Outdoors
If you're a cat owner, it's likely that you might live in a home with a cat flap. The ideal way to let your cat come and go as they please, there are various types to suit different cats. Some cat flaps are triggered by a microchip, preventing cats that don't live in the home from venturing in there, while other cat flaps have in-built infra-red locking systems. Whatever your choice, you'll want to make sure you have one - if only to prevent you getting up every five minutes to let your cat in and out!
Using the cat flap as an escape
For many cats, the cat flap is a great method of escape from stressful situations that might be happening in your home. There are occasions that a cat might need personal space and the ability to escape from a situation they might perceive as a threat. For example, a conflict with another cat in the home, or having unfamiliar visitors in the house. Microchip or magnetic cat flaps can provide your cat with security so that neighbouring cats do not enter your home.
