Does your cat enjoy time in the garden? Do you have concerns about where they go and what they get up to? In this blog post we demonstrate how a SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect and a ProtectaPet cat fencing solution can enable you to know where your cat is all the time; no more sleepless nights or worries!
Are they inside the house or out in the garden?
Finding out where your cat is has never been so easy: the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect enables you to monitor the 'app' on your phone to check your cat’s comings and goings in combination with their normal pattern of activity. Outdoor access is very stimulating for cats, so knowing how often they go outside can reassure you that they are getting the enrichment they need.
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect alerts you on your phone when you cat comes and goes from the house. Over time, you can check the graphs of the activity to see what their usual patterns are and see any seasonal variations. Does your cat love the snow or prefer long warm nights outdoors? The cat flap reads your cat's microchip, so that only resident cats can have access to their home. Neighbourhood cats in your cat's territory can be stressful for your pet and cause them unnecessary anxiety.
A secure outdoor territory
If you want to offer your cat the best of both safety and welfare, you can provide your cat with a safe outdoor territory by lining your garden boundary with a ProtectaPet Cat Fence Barrier. This cat enclosure keeps your cat in your garden so that you know they are in a safe outdoor territory without exposure to the risks of free-roaming.
Free-roaming cats are exposed to dangers such as busy roads and interactions with other animals which could lead to fighting and stress.
Outdoor access for a content cat
The outdoors offers great enrichment for cats including new sights and smells and gives them a territory to scent and explore. Cats use outside space to sharpen their claws, sunbathe in the sunshine and go to the toilet, so you don’t have to have a litter tray inside.
Making your cat feel safe and secure in your home and garden can help to keep them happy, healthy and relaxed, and keeping track of their whereabouts will give you peace of mind.
