    Hi all, our 2 rescue cats have just started venturing outside after being kept inside for 3 months so we need a cat flap fitting. Can anyone recommend good ones and why?

    I have the sure flap one, it’s good (because it only lets my cats in) but not perfect. Seems to eat batteries and Andre has managed to remove the little dial that locks it, so the only way to lock it at night now it to remove the battery!

    I have it installed in a double glazing panel.

    Thanks when you say it only let's your cats in, is it a microchip one? I've been looking at the sure flap dual scan one, any good?

    Yes it’s the dual scan one I have. You only need the dual scan one if you want to keep one cat in but let the other out, otherwise the standard scan one will do.

    overall I like it and don’t think there’s an alternative on the market.
