The flap dimensions of a standard sureflap are 142x120 mm - is that smaller than the flap your cat is using?

Yep. My cat is about that weight and we have a micro chip cat flap.

He does get through but it can be a bit of a squeeze for him. He gets about half way and then has to put s bit of effort in to get the rest of him through 😀

We do open the door for him of we're home to save him to humiliation.

Our FatCat fits through a microchip cat flap just. It's quite entertaining really grin

I can't remember his weight but he's on large cat flea stuff etc.

What's the dimensions? (Of the cat flap)? Bogbastardkitten can't be 7kg yet but is a hefty size and growing, and he just fits through the magnetic one like this. Can't find dimensions on the web.

I think it may depend on the nature of the rotundity - a lot of BBKs apparent bulk is fur and bone structure, so he sort of stretches out and squashes his fur and squeezes through the most improbable gaps. He looks like a magic carpet when in stalk mode. If Poltercats 7kg is more about good living, perhaps more difficult?

PS cross post with the photos. He is gorgeous! You don't know his inheritance do you? He looks very like my friends Maine Coon.

We got Harry the Sureflap pet door rather than the cat flap as it's slightly bigger.

Huntercat is long, fluffy, and nearly 6kg. He squeezes through fine.
