Using Cat Flaps

If you have a a cat, then you might want to consider installing a couple of cat flaps in your house, specially if you get more than one. 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.

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

It’s important to make sure that installing a cat door doesn’t make it easier for burglars to break into your house by uninstalling them or by any other method. 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 in the Area

Even if cat doors won’t let burglars of thieves break into your house, the neighborhood cats will have no trouble at all getting into your house, something that you might want to consider. 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 cat doors normally are locked with the use of a magnet, in such a way that any other cat will not be able to open the door, even if it pushes it, as the magnets will hold it in place.

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.
