Not much use if your cat refuses to wear a collar

I got my first kitten in May 1997. Lovely fluffy black bundle of joy, with white socks, white bib, white cheeks and large voluptuous white whiskers. At the time I lived in a three storey maisonette without a garden. Normally I would not have got a cat without a garden but the plan was to move...

When I first got my "babies" I knew I had to get a catflap for them. I didn't want to be forever worrying about them being shut out all day/night because they hadn't come in when I called so a catflap was the answer. ~~~ Four Way Locking Catflap ~~~ Firstly an apology this category is for Petmate...

more expensive, could be more robust

...who's a bit of a wimp and doesn't really know he's a cat at all - spending his first few years indoors has meant he's very timid and tends to get the stuffing kicked out of him by other more assertive cats. The one thing he's become very good at is the swift getaway, but in the past this has...

Easy to install

Magnet too large - almost killed my cat

After five days having the Staywell 30, my cat came to me looking as though she were sick. When I picked her up her mouth was wide open. The large magnet that comes with this flap door was lodged inside her mouth, still attached to her collar. Her paw was cut by her teeth while trying to get it...

Doesn't work at all!

First off this a review of the Pet Mate (or Cat Mate - Pet Mate do Dog Mate, Cat Mate etc...) Electromagnetic cat flap. It comes with 2 magnets for the cat's collars, and the flap has the usual 4 way settings. It is actually electromagnetic, it requires a 9V battery in the flap. The strays came...
