How Do I Teach a Cat to Use a Cat Flap?

Answer

A cat flap is a miniature version of a doggy door. It is an opening on the lower part of the door designed for your pet cat to go in and out of the house. To teach your cat to use a cat flap, get on the other side of the door with a treat. Hold the flap open and call your cat. If your cat comes to you through the flap, give a treat. Get your cat back to the other side. This time close the flap. Do the same process of calling your cat and giving treat once it comes to you through the flap. If your cat hesitates, open the flap so it can see you with the treat. Try again until your cat gets comfortable going through the cat flap.
