The range of Cat Mate cat flaps is one of our most popular collections, thanks largely to their advanced technological features and ease of use. However, we still get a lot of questions from customers asking us just what the difference is between them all.

Here at The Pet Express we stock three items from the Cat Mate range – the Elite Super Selective and the Elite Selective chip and disc flaps, and the Elite Super Selective disc cat flap. All of these cat flaps offer a range of different features to meet the needs of both owners and their cats.

To make things easier, we thought we’d detail a bit about each product, and then provide a handy chart to easily show the features of each.
