Auto Cat Flaps
I can see what this gadget is all about. Pop a microchip onto your kitty and the little one controls the cat-flap. Be gone all you other neighborhood cats! See, the cat flap detects if it is your cat (via microchip) and only lets in your cat.
You can even set an auto lock system; no cat exits at night where the ‘gate to great outdoors’ is only open during the day.
I thoroughly understand the merit behind such a system. We had a harrowing experience when a wandering cat from the area strolled in and picked a fight with the little kitty of the house.
Worse yet, in their little angry scuffle they broke two wine bottles in the nearby case. Eeek!
On the other hand, you wonder about this handy I-will-track-you-Trekkie style gadgets.
Is it really foolproof?
What if the kitty comes home to a 404 Error notice on the flap?
Alright, I am talking through my hat with that one but you know what I mean.
And here’s the ultimate funny scenario… what if your cat wanted to bring home a ‘friend’. That’s never going to happen once the microchip is in, is it?
Or cats coming in to party when you are out. You know, seven cat curling up on your sofa, sipping margaritas.
