Just invested in a cat flaps installation for your beloved moggy? Good move! It’s a great way to give him or her freedom while you’re out at work, shopping and/or visiting friends etc.
Not only does it mean your feline friend isn’t stuck in the house sleeping when they could be out investigating the garden, but it also means they won’t be clawing the fabric of your sofa while you’re not there to chase them! But how do you get them to use this new super new cat flap installation which is going to improve their life and health so much? Well, take a look at our guide right here:
Tip 1. If you have a particularly nervous cat then you can make approaching the cat flap easier for him or her by rubbing their fur with a piece of fabric and then transfer the scent on to the cat flap by rubbing that too. That way you’re making it less of an ‘alien’ object.
Tip 2. We all know what furtive creatures cats can be and, because of this, they won’t like going through the cat flap installation and into an open space. You could place a couple of large plant pots around one metre in front of the cat flap so there’s somewhere for him/her to instantly hide behind and feel more secure when emerging.
Tip 3. The above training tips are for ordinary cat flaps ie those without a microchip. If you buy a micro-chip-enabled cat flap then the flap will automatically lift when your cat goes near it. You’ll still have to train him or her to go through via – yes, you’ve guessed it – their favourite titbit. Extras with a microchip-enabled cat flap include a timer and draught excluder.
