When you are purchasing a cat flap, please ensure: -

  • To select the most appropriate cat flap for your cat’s size, weight and needs.
  • We recommend that customers use the flap sizes to cut a hole in a cardboard box to see if the cat/dog will fit through it ok.
  • It is vital that you are confident that your cat flap purchase will fit in the desired place in your home. For example – if it is a glass installation, is the glass wide enough?

        Sorry Margaret, I can't find you on our system, did you buy it from us? If not, I would go back to whoever you bought it from and ask them. Or go direct to Petsafe, the manufacturer of the cat flap and see what they advise. Thanks. Sarah
