As much as we have domesticated the purry creatures, they are not made for indoor life. Cats need to get outside frequently and have a ‘normal’ life. But the modern world may not allow them free access to the outside world. You have to fear for their safety. The Purrfect Fence is a cat proof fence extension that keeps them in the premises and does not allows them to jump outside the border.
It keeps them safe from the traffic, other cats, predators, and other possible dangers. The cats can freely ‘roam’ around and enjoy the outdoors.
What is Purrfect Fence?
Purrfect Fence is a cat fence extension that can be used as a fence or to add an extension to the existing fence of the house. It can be used to modify the existing fences to make it car proof. Purrfect fence is mostly customizable. It is affordable and cost effective to keep the purry friends safe and secure. They could be installed without compromising on the beauty of the homes.
These cat fence extensions are mesh type in make but are invisible to the human eye when viewed from a distance of 15-30 ft so that the beauty of the house is kept intact. The cat proof fences can accommodate the access gates, support posts and even the ground stakes for the custom enclosures.
How does the Purrfect cat fence work?
There are 2 types of enclosures from the Purrfect fence. The fence is made of heavy duty mesh that has a springy effect. This spring effect would keep the cats inside the fenced area. Even if the cats managed to reach the top of the fence, the weight of them would bend the mesh fence and it bends inwards to make the cat jump ‘inside’. When the cat’s weight is released, the fence goes back to its original position guarding the yard.

Free standing outdoor cat fence enclosures

This mesh cat fence is 7 ft in length but it stands at 6 ft with the one ft of the mesh fence curved inwards, forming a mini roof. The mesh is strong and withstands the weight of the cats.
