Cat Flaps & Nets
Offer your cat the freedom to come and goYour home is also your cat's home and they should be able to come and go as they please. Cats just love spending time outdoors, whether it is just to potter around, enjoying the sunshine, or refining their pouncing skills! Give your cat the freedom to explore the outdoors and access their home with a cat flap or cat door.
What are the advantages of a cat flap?
Before you purchase a cat flap, consider the advantages and disadvantages of letting your pet outside unsupervised. Cats should be microchipped and we also recommend a collar with an ID tag. You should evaluate the level of traffic near your home and also how likely it is that your cat will roam - neutered cats are less likely to stray very far.
With that in mind, we have a wide selection of cat flaps of all shapes and sizes at zooplus, to allow you to choose the best cat flap for your pet. No matter whether you need a high-tech cat flap with a chip monitor or a more conventional cat door, you are guaranteed to find the perfect one here for your feline friend!
What different styles of cat flap are available?
Microchip Cat Flaps
These sophisticated cat flaps work by reading your cat's microchip number and then only unlocking the cat flap door for them - no need for a radio-frequency identification (RFID) collar tag! Our range of microchip cat flaps offers your cat a secure environment - the best cat flap solution for keeping any unwanted visitors out!
Manual Cat Flaps
Simple and practical, manual cat flaps give your cat the freedom to go out and come back in whenever they want. At zooplus, we have a selection of manual cat flaps suited for every need - including magnetic locking systems and large cat flaps.
Infrared & Magnetic Cat Flaps
Attach the magnet to your cat's collar and away you go. Easily attachable and offers your cat freedom to the great outdoors, our collection of infrared and magnetic cat flaps keeps your cat safe and stops strays or unwelcome wildlife coming into your home!
What about letting my indoor cat safely out onto a balcony?
The range of cat nets at zooplus is perfect for allowing your cat to get fresh air and sunshine - even if your only outdoor space is a balcony! They help to provide extra safety, so that you don’t have to worry about letting your cat out. This can be a great option if you have an indoor cat, or even for use just for short stretches of time when unwell or recovering.
Helpful hints to bear in mind before getting a cat flap!
- Installing a cat flap does involve a bit of DIY. You will most likely need a screwdriver, a saw, a drill and some sandpaper.
- Glass doors are more complicated; most instruction manuals will recommend you contact a professional glazier to help with this.
- Make sure you place the cat flap at the correct height - you don't want it to be too high up, as your cat may struggle to use it, especially as it gets older.
