    Short of buying an expensive chip controlled catflap, and having the cats lose the collars all the time or having them all implanted with one, how do I have a catflap which the cats can go through but my parrots can't?

    you cant

    microchip catflap is the only way.

    Also if your cats go outside you should have them all microchipped anyway

    As above, you can get cat flaps that only work with microchips. Either that, or just let the cats out manually and close the flap permanently.

    With 6 cats I can't let them out manually, they end up doing their business in the house. And no I won't microchip my cats or neuter them, its completely unnecessary and barbaric.

    microchipping free-roaming pet cats is not needed & "barbaric"?
    Let alone all cats being reproductively intact! - wow. Just wow.

    How would you like it if the government forced you to have your testicles or the female equivalent removed without your consent? I would never do that to an animal. It's natural for them to make babies, and that's the way they should be.

    And of course I have no litter boxes, they do it outside! Litter boxes absolutely stink!

    You can't be serious?! I'm not trolling, I'm pointing out that if you love your pet cats, you would treat them like a human being. Would you neuter your own children without their consent? You disgust me. I'd jail anyone neutering a cat. LEAVE THEM ALONE!

    Not trolling maybe but your attitude towards neutering/spaying is totally against the way that the majority of the members here think. It cannot be equated with human reproduction.
    An average cat has 1-8 kittens per litter and 2-3 litters per year. During her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens. A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years.
    Is this what you want for your pets?

    I wish you luck in trying to stop your parrots from getting out and think a microchip would be the best way but am closing this before it becomes an unpleasant argument
