Initially I was hesitant abut spending so much money on a cat flap, and I was also concerned about whether my 11-year old cat's microchip could be read.
However, the product works perfectly, does exactly what it says it does, and was incredibly easy to set up.
Unfortunately the back door was lined with metal but I fitted the mounting adaptor and haven't had a single problem. The cat, who has historically had a lot of problems with cat flaps (I previously had magnetic ones and he struggled to operate them properly coming in, and occasionally got stuck after collecting bits of rusty metal on his magnet), did not take to it immediately. He knew what to do but was extremely suspicious - I got the impression he found the whole thing way too easy. But after a couple of days he really got into it and now he loves his new cat flap and no longer only goes out to use the 'facilities'. For the first time in about 3 years he's actually spending more time outside than in during the day.
If you're torn between this cat flap and a magnetic one, let me help you out: had I known how fantastic this flap was, I'd have bought it years ago. I'll never buy magnetic again.
