Want to know what your cat gets up to when you’re on holiday?
19th July 2018
Have you ever wondered what your cat gets up to while you are on holiday? Do you wonder if their habits change while you are absent?
A pet sitter who pops in a couple of times a day while you are away will only be able to tell you so much about what your cat has got up to. They may be able to tell you whether your cat is in the house or out of the house at the time of their visit, but they won’t be able to tell you how long your cat spent outside or how many times they have gone in and out.
But there is a cat flap that can tell you…
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect
The most advanced cat flap ever, the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect, can help you keep track of your cat’s comings and goings whilst you are on holiday, giving you peace of mind that they are going about their usual routine whilst you are away.
Changes in behaviour
The Microchip Cat Flap Connect is linked to the Sure Petcare app and can send you an alert every time your cat goes in or out of the house. When you’re on holiday, if you notice any changes in your cat’s behaviour, you could get in contact with your pet sitter and ask them to look in on your cat to make sure they are OK.
Give your pet sitter access
In addition to receiving notifications, it’s also possible to lock the Microchip Cat Flap Connect remotely. You can give your pet sitter access to the app so that they can use this feature if they need to. For example, you might want your pet sitter to lock the cat flap during bad weather or if there are disruptions outside that might upset your cat.
If you are the type of holiday maker who likes to switch off your mobile device while you’re away, you can find out what your cat got up to retrospectively when you return home. Your cat’s activity for the previous week will be stored within the Sure Petcare app, helping you analyse their behaviour to give you peace of mind the next time you go away.
