3 Alternative Uses for Microchip Cat Flaps

Microchip cat flaps like the SureFlap® Microchip Cat Flap Connect are a great way to give your cat the freedom to explore the great outdoors while giving you the peace of mind that your home will be safe from unwanted intruders.

But have you ever considered the fact that these microchip-enabled devices aren’t just for outdoor cats? Here are three alternative uses for microchip cat flaps.

1. Outdoor Cat Enclosures

Many cats enjoy being outside, but you may not feel comfortable letting your cat roam. That’s why outdoor cat enclosures are the perfect solution.

Often referred to as “catios,” these enclosures are the best of both worlds; your cat has the option to spend time outside, and you can rest assured that your cat is never too far from home.

Plus, when you install a microchip cat flap into the catio, it syncs with your cat’s microchip so you can ensure that no other animals can enter the outdoor enclosure, truly making it their own sanctuary outside the home.

2. Personal Spaces 

Bringing the idea of outdoor cat enclosures indoors, you can also create sanctuaries for your cat inside the home by installing microchip cat flaps on an internal wall or door.

This option is especially important if your cat is timid and prefers a private place to eat, drink, and sleep or if a few of your pets don’t always get along. By giving them their own space with a microchip cat flap, you and your cat can relax knowing they always have a personal space that’s all their own.

3. Litter Rooms

Other pets, especially dogs, often want to explore your cat’s litter box. This is a common complication that can arise, but like most of those complications, there are easy solutions for multi-pet homes. 

In this instance, there are actually two simple solutions. You can either place the litter box in a specific room and install a microchip cat onto the door or install it onto the litter box itself.

Even if your dog has a microchip, the door to the litter box still won’t open for them since these devices specifically sync with your cat’s microchip.

Getting Creative with Microchip Cat Flaps 

Whether your furry family member is an indoor or outdoor cat, there are plenty of ways you can use your cat’s microchip to your advantage and ensure that they can enjoy their very own private spaces in and around their loving home.
