What Are Cat Flap Covers?

Cat flat covers are designed to cover cat flaps when they are not in use, helping to control access, prevent drafts, and, importantly, improve security. They are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes to meet the needs of your cat flap and requirements.


Top 3 Qualities Your Cat Flaps Need!

All the best draught proof cat flats have these 3 qualities in common:


  1. Weatherproof: The first step when selecting cat flat covers is to ensure it is weatherproof. While most cat flap covers are designed to withstand various weather conditions including the wind, rain, and extreme heat, it’s important to ensure your selected product provides the required protection.
  2. Security: Additionally, when reviewing different cat flap covers on the market, select one that has a secure lock. Doing so will ensure your home remains safe from potential thieves, while allowing your cat to enter and exit with ease.
  3. Durability: It’s likely that your cat will use your cat flap throughout the day, so it’s important to ensure your selected cat flap covers are made from robust materials that offer longevity and reliability.
