I got my first petporte cat flap 7/8 years ago. It was the best cat flap I have ever used. It did stop 99% of the local cats getting in the 1% that got in either followed my cat or as I saw one of the cats used his claw to pull it open (did take him a while). When I first had it we had 4 cats using it all the time. It moved house with me just over 2 years ago and went in to my new house no problems. I have just bought a new one to replace it and this was only because while some building work was being done the old one got damaged.
Would recommend this to any one who has a cat. Before having this flap I had tried 3/4 different ones but this one is far better than any of them and worth every penny.
> PetSafe Response: Hiya Su, what great feedback on the Petporte, thank you for taking the time to let us know how it's worked wonders for your cats! I hope you enjoy the new one just as much. If you need any support with installation just let us know. Thanks again! :)
We've had ours for 4 years now, and it has just been priceless for us and our cat (who was being bullied by a neighbour's cat).
One feedback/request I have - would it be possible (if it isn't already implemented, and if so, my apologies) to implement a 'Day' mode so that the cat can only go out at night (to protect fledglings in our garden)?
PETSAFE RESPONSE - we are so pleased to hear how well the Petporte has worked for you and especially fending off the bullies for your cat. We will send your suggestion to our design team in Knoxville as every idea is welcome for future upgrades. Thank you for taking the time to write to us with your idea.
Keep other cats out. Keep your cat in at night. Keep him in for vet appointments. No magnets to lose. No uncomfort for your cat. Battery backup.
The peace of mind is hard to overstate.
This is rare thing... a brilliant invention.
I recommend this to everyone with a cat.
> PetSafe Response: Hi E M, we really appreciate your feedback and for sharing you story with us. Our Petporte can make a big difference to the security and peace of mind for your pet. Anything you need just let us know :)
Very useful cat flap, so versatile. Ours DOES have a day-night function (see previous review) which we haven't had before, and find a great way to keep our young cat in at night.
The only problem is, we've lost the instruction manual and sometimes have to spend a bit of time working out how to change the settings! Would it be possible to have another copy sent to us?
Many thanks for good product.
> PetSafe Response: Hi J, thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the Petporte Smart Flap® - it's one of our favourite products! We certainly do have the manual available for you: it's on this product page within 'Manuals & Downloads' or you can copy + paste this link: http://bit.ly/100EF-manual
Anything else we can do to help just let us know.
For our cats it works perfectly. However, I have grown tired of the mice, lizards, birds and snakes carried into the house by my cat through the door at night. Would hope for a timer-feature at night.
> PetSafe Response: Thanks for the feedback Anna. I'm sorry to hear you're also finding other creatures being brought in - your cat sounds like quite the hunter!
If you need to control / stop other Cats coming into your home. This is your product.
I tried the magnetic cat flap first. But by Cat managed to lose his collar one day and got stuck outside so I quickly upgraded to the microchip reader and never looked back (1.5 years ago)
> PetSafe Response: We’re so happy to hear your pet is enjoying the Petporte Smart Flap product.
We love this product too!
Cat flap works quite well most of the tine except when our cat enters slowly - The door closes behind him but fails to pass the green peg completely. This allows another cat entry behind. Annoying & making the device a waste of money.
> PetSafe Response: We are sorry to hear you're having a problem with your Petporte. To solve this problem you can extend the lock out time on the door, which allows the door a longer time to close over the lock.
We'll have Customer Care associate email you to resolve your problem.
Cats use this with ease compared to my petmate, but I found to that to use the timer mode I have to stand in front of the flap at the time of day I want to set it to.
> PetSafe Response: Great feedback Philippa and thanks for your comments. We hope you enjoy your Petporte Cat Flap!
Fantastic never a problem in about three years of ownership. Cats love it we love it. I'm checking the site out right now for a newer version just to see if they have improved it somehow. Worth every penny, its still going strong.
No other unwanted animal can gain entry. You will kick yourself if you have been using the old fashioned version and they swap to this.
