Types of Cat Flaps

Your little kitten has a natural instinct to protect both themselves and their territory. To begin with, therefore, they may see a cat flap as a hole in their “home defences”. It’s up to you to help them out, and give them the confidence to use it.

Types of cat flap

A basic cat flap is inexpensive and easy to install. Many people choose cat flaps that come with a lock.

Lockable cat flaps

There are several different lockable cat flaps to choose from:

• Simple locking cat flap – you operate the lock yourself, choosing when to let your kitten in or out
• Electro-magnetic cat flap – activated automatically by a special magnet on your kitten’s collar
• Micro-chip cat flap – activated automatically by your kitten’s unique micro-chip

Getting your kitten used to the cat flap

• Fit the cat flap at the right height for your kitten to step through – this is usually about 6cm above the bottom of the door
• To begin with, prop open the cat flap slightly and tempt your kitten through it with treats and food
• Let your kitten have a good sniff and explore around the area
• Try gently lifting your kitten up towards the cat flap to help show them what you expect them to do
