The Integrated Catflap : Best cascade for under cat mouth identification?


I've built into a standard Petsafe cat flap, the innards to be able to take a photo underneath the cats mouth, to see if has an item of prey in it.

If it does then the flap will trigger a servo and lock the flap.

I've had the flap recording since September each time the cat goes back and forth through it. I now have 500+ pictures of prey in different positions in the cat mouth.

The plan is to create an Open CV Haar Cascade from these images which Open CV will use to lock the flap.

Question is, is using a Haar Cascade the best option for recognition? Would LBP be better?

Many thanks
