Re: Nightmare with cat flap!

Hi Chloe what a worry. Hope you get the cat flap sorted. In the meantime can you keep your fur babe inside. Strange that other cats can get in if it’s a chip reader. Don’t know anything about them. Can Cat Mate send someone to investigate? Keep us posted. Vivian

Your Shini has similar coloured eyes to my Pebbles .. an oriental-x. Not blue or green, turquoise like. A Japanese vet told me that Asians with blood type B result in similar coloured eyes. Think she’s beautiful. Good luck. Vivian & the Famous Five from Oz.
