Are Cat Flaps a Good Idea? — 5 Comments

  1. I just leave my doors open – even when I leave… I’ve been doing that for years, so some nefarious person may have indeed noticed and realized there must not be anything of value to plunder. I don’t recall any other cats coming in, but there was a small opossum who met it’s end in the garage. That was sad. Again, sorry but I’m no help here.

  2. Flaps, either cat or dog can be hazardous to either dog or cat if intruders enter. Can also be dangerous to the humans in the house if an intruder of any kind, 2 or 4 legged uses it to enter. I realize cat flaps don’t allow a large human or large dog to crawl through, but enough damage can be caused to permit entrance. I don’t have either.

  3. Our cats are indoor only cats with occasional supervised outdoor excursions. We installed a cat flap into the utility room where the litter box is located. This has dual purpose. The cats have privacy and the dogs stay out of the litter. The cats love it and spend time napping on the washer and dryer.

  4. I know that there are multitudes of homes with cat flaps, both in the United States and abroad. I am totally against them, except in extreme cases. For various reasons that were mentioned in this article, I do not think that any cat should come and go unmonitored. It is too risky and could be dangerous to our cats. That is my opinion.
