    We've got 2 cats one is 4 years old & the other 3 years old. We had the litter tray & food tray in the bathroom. We've now got a cat flap & r putting the trays etc outside on the balcony.

    How do I get the cats to use the cat flap??

    I've done this with numerous cats and never had a problem. Just hold the flap up for them at first and gently push them through. They soon get the hang of it.

    Good luck, whichever method you choose :D

    We pretty much did the same as leapfrog with ours - just encouraged him to go through the open flap - he soon got used to it. Good luck x
