The SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap Connect is the most advanced cat flap ever. It keeps intruder cats out and once connected to the Sure Petcare app via the Hub, it notifies the owner of their pet’s comings and goings. It can be locked remotely and includes a curfew mode, which can be set and changed within the app. Graphs in the app reveal a pet’s activity over time. The cat flap encourages proactive pet care, enabling pet owners to stay connected with their cats while they’re away and notice changes in behaviour which could be an indication of illness.
