You're going to need a bigger cat-flap!

Our current cat flap's magnet is not, how shall we say, doing the biz as every time a puff of wind blows against it a cold current of air soon pervades my little office area. Yes, I cleaned the cat fluff off but to no avail. Time to get a new one "large cats and small dogs" size. The first one's magnet was useless so got another one which was also useless. Finally got one with a good magnet and installed it. Two cats went in and out no problem; unfortunately our female tubby tabby called Weasel took offence to its only slightly slimmer outline, decided she wasn't going to get through, and promptly had a wee right next to it. Cue lots of mopping and refreshing applications. We looked at each other and said in unison "We're going to need a bigger cat flap"! One has just arrived and should do the trick.

 :) Perhaps you could have saved the extra expense if you'd not told Weasel it was nothing to get into a flap about.  :unsure:

Our JRT is so small, that she had to leave her second lot of 'parents', as she used to chase the cats they had through their catflap!

I'm glad she came to live here though, but I wish she would stop biting her fur these days, Mrs Growster is giving her a telling off as we speak...

GG, did you know you can get catflaps that only open for your cats? They have to be micro chipped though. I got 1 when I got my late motherís cats I didnít like the thought of other cats maybe coming in. Works a treat, doesnít flap when it shouldnít.

We bought the large (pet door) size, as Izzy is quite a portly puss (although he says he's just 'floofy').  It is very good, and even with the battery taken out (to disengage the locks, as the 'click' scares him), the magnets hold the door so well that it's usually pegged open (he has issue with having to push it open).  We've had it for nearly three years now and I'm still hoping that one day he will learn to use it.  ::) :D :lol:
