Cat Flaps – Because You Don’t Want Your Cat To Have Cabin Fever

That cat’s behave as though they own your house and you are there to serve them. That bossy demeanor, you have to admit, is part of what makes cats so great to have as pets. Still, being expected to be treated that way can have its own set of problems. When your cat has been stuck inside your home and want to go out and cant’, that lead to some issues. Should your cat now have its own path out of the house, you might get pestered all day to let it out, until you give in. Later, you’ll worry whether they tried to come back and you weren’t there to let them in. If want you to pamper your cat a bit and avoid being mewed into submission, you might as well start shopping for cat flaps.

If you look it up online, pet doors meant for cats are just flaps – flexible plastic that can be mounted on doors for cats to get through. Most models offer a simple but effective plastic flap you install on your door, but with other models, the flap has settings like open only, close only, open both ways, and lock. With particular models, you also have a configuration that allows only one-directional entry (in or out) and then locks itself (good for when you want to lock up for the night). So when your cat comes back, it stay safely inside your house.

For many types of doors, and even on walls, you will find many kinds of cat flaps. The wall could be thick, which would require some additional “tunnels” to properly install the cat flap. For those cat owners aware that cat flaps can let the heat out, there are insulated cat flaps that minimize energy loss through three (not just one) flap used. This system reduces heat loss through a constant pocket of air maintained between the flaps. The idea is one flap open means another behind it already closed off.

Cat flaps are also generally smaller than those used by dogs. That’s one reason they are less prone to be used by thieves. Also, be sure to install the cat flap at the lowest point of your door. This is convenient for your cat, as it can simply walk in or out.

Other pets and even a small-framed person can probably force its way inside your home through the flap; for that reason you might want to look into automatic cat flaps, or doors. In that set up your cat wears a collar that a mechanism in the cat door senses. So your cat has to be near the door; animals without the collar cannot enter. You do need to check up regularly on the collar’s batteries – if it ever runs out and you’re not at home, your cat may not be able to get out of or get in your house (since the door won’t activate).

So after you go through this checklist – whether you want automatic or normal cat flaps, whether you’ll be having a door or wall installation, and if you may need some extra “tunnels” for insulated flaps, you’re ready to purchase your pet door.
