The Hewitt family

Two Maine Coons and their SureFlap Microchip Pet Door

Phil Hewitt and his two beautiful Maine Coons, Charlie and Sascha were finding life quite stressful. They were being terrorised by a farm cat that would enter the house through their standard cat flap and steal their food. Phil knew he had to do something to help protect his cats from the home invader.

Keeping a cat's home safe

Home invasion can be very stressful for resident cats. The home is at the centre of a cat's territory, where they should feel safe and have private access to their food, water and favourite sleeping spots. Stress caused by home invasion can lead to health and behavioural problems, so it's important to prevent other cats entering the home. Learn more about your cat's territory here.

Picking the right SureFlap door

Maine Coons are the largest breed of domestic cat so size matters! Although Maine Coons can fit through the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap, Phil bought a SureFlap Microchip Pet Door, the largest size in the range, to keep the intruder cat out. The pet door also has the added benefit of a curfew mode that allows owners to keep their pets indoors at certain times of the day, perhaps overnight or during the morning rush hour. 


Maine Coons, Charlie and Sascha

Phil, how has the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door made a difference to your cats’ wellbeing?

Our two Maine Coons were soon confident about using their new flap, and although it took several weeks, they are now more relaxed because the intruder tom cat has not been able to enter and steal their food. We know that the neighbouring farm’s cat still prowls round as the garden lights come on, but our cats are less tense knowing no entry has taken place."
