Today’s a doozy of a giveaway for the cat people: a SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap!
I know a lot of people- including this one- keep their cats indoor only, and that’s OK. We will have other things for you. For those who have secure and safe outdoor places for cats to roam, this is your lucky day!
I’ve heard the stories firsthand: you install a cat door, only to find your neighbor’s tabby chilling in your living room, eating all your cat food. Then he won’t leave. Reminds me of college. That would be distinctly unpleasant.
The SureFlap cat flap is a battery powered cat door with an embedded microchip reader. Any cat can get out, but in order to get back in the door must recognize your cat’s microchip. It can store up to 32 microchip numbers (though if you have 32 cats in your house, we should talk.)
The embedded chip reader is designed to work with the most common types of microchips used in Europe and the US, including the AVID chips and the ISO chips.
For now, SureFlap only makes this one cat-sized door, though I’m crossing my fingers they come up with a dog sized one. I could totally use that. In the meantime, the official SureFlap video demonstrates the process as well as gives you an idea of the sizing. It is also narrated by a person with a British accent, which always makes videos more enjoyable (speaking as someone who has had a combination Boston/Valley Girl accent my whole life. I would kill for a British accent.)
We have one SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap to give away to one lucky reader! Retail value of this product is $150.
Leave a comment below with a tale of which adventurous kitty or kitties will be getting to use it should you win. Contest is open to readers worldwide!
I’m trying something new and I’ll see if I like it or not: You can enter once per day until the contest closes, so you can get up to 7 entries.
Deadline: June 28th, 11:59 PM PST.
