Give your Cat it's own door key

AdvantagesThey can come and go as they please, unless you deem otherwise!

DisadvantagesNot 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 within six months or so, to a house with a garden. However, as such plans go, it turned into nearly two years by the time we eventually moved. So we now had ..." Read review

Freedom For Cats With A Key

Advantagessee op

Disadvantagessee op

"...apology this category is for Petmate and mine is Staywell. I haven't had a lot of response lately when I asked for new things to be added and they all work pretty much the same anyway, so I beg your forgiveness. My catflap is operated by a magnetic "key" which the cats wear attached to their collars. Being the sort of person who unplugs things by accident and forgets to change batteries I figured this would be a better option than an electronic or ..." Read review

could have been designed for my cat

Advantageskeeps your cat safe from bullies, and your home from small intruders

Disadvantagesmore 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 led to pitched battles in the hall as he is pursued well back in to his own territory. In fact our old cat flap actually broke when one hefty local tom ..." Read review

Completely useless


DisadvantagesDoesn'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 in on the first night of use! Why? Well actually the mechanism is quite strong BUT it only prevents cats from entering the house, it does not prevent any ..." Read review

Magnet almost killed my cat

AdvantagesEasy to install

DisadvantagesMagnet 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 out. I even had a hard time trying to remove it. If I had been at work at this time I am sure the cat would have died. I am very concerned someone else's cat ..." Read review
