London landlord issues trapped cat warning

A London landlord is calling on agents to ensure that cat flaps are locked on new instructions to avoid cats being trapped and causing unnecessary damage to properties.

Jenine Langrish’s cat Raffles (pictured) caused damage to a neighbour’s property after getting trapped in the property. She explains: “He had been trapped inside the home of a neighbour, who had just moved in and then gone away for Christmas. He was stuck because the previous owner, on moving out, had set their cat flap to in-only mode, in order to trap their own cats for the move. The new owner, not having a cat, had paid no notice to the cat flap.”

“I appreciate that estate agents are busy people, and that cat flaps are a minor detail, but nobody wants to try to sell or let a house that smells of cat urine.”
