Fence Bottom Barrier - Prevent Escapes & Digging/Chewing


Do you have a cat escaping UNDER your fence? Our bottom fence barrier for cats is a simple yet effective solution to prevent escapes under your fence. Whether your cat has discovered dips in the ground, dug a hole, or being helped by other animals in the enclosure such as dogs. The barrier works with any fence type whether you have wood, metal, chain link, PVC, brick, block, or others.

Our fence bottom barrier system used galvanized and vinyl-coated welded steel wire to create a physical barrier that stops all traffic where the fence meets the ground. The welded wire is formed into an "L" shape. The bottom is staked into the ground with specially designed heavy-duty galvanized stakes and the top is secured to your existing fence with fasteners appropriate based on the material. Held in place with your choice of staples, screws, zip ties, or your choice of fastener (fasteners not included due to the wide variety of fencing materials, though they can be purchased separately.)Read more about that in the installation section below.

We offer two different lengths of our fence bottom barrier kit. It offers 24 inches tall welded wire (available in lengths of 50 or 100 feet) which allows for 8-16 inches of coverage on the ground and 8-16 inches of vertical coverage up the fence. A total of 24 inches of coverage combined. The welded wire squares are 1.75" x 1.75" so your cat or dog cannot scratch, chew, or fit through it, but so that grass can easily grow through it. The welded wire can also be trimmed to accommodate certain heights or to work around obstructions in the fence line.

*Fasteners for holding the wire to the existing fence are not included. See Installation tab for more information on what is required for your fence type.


Wrought Iron / Aluminum - UV-resistant zip ties (not included) are used to securely hold the wire mesh to your fence. 1 tie at least every 12 inches is recommended

Wood - Use heavy-duty staples or "romex" staples (not included) to hold fencing to wood surfaces. If pickets are small enough, zip ties can also be used.

Brick & Block - Can be installed on these surfaces as well. Specialty masonry fasteners will need to be used with washer heads (not included) to hold the mesh wire to the surface securely. 

Chain Link - UV-resistant zip ties (not included) are used to securely hold the wire mesh to your fence. 1 tie at least every 12 inches is recommended. Alternatively, you can use Hog Rings which are much stronger and more durable.

Love it!

Definitely get Purrfect fence!

It's purrfect for cats that go outside

It has prevented my cats, who previously were getting out under the fence, from getting out now.

Barrier works good

Fence Barrier works Great!

Cats no longer can go under the fence. Also keeps wild animals out.

perfect solution

easily closed up gaps under wood fence where dog was digging to get out. East install, perfect solution.


Fence was easy to install, we did it in the winter and was not able to fold it as intended, but it still has worked great. It's filled in the gaps with our chain fence so that our puppy couldn't dig her way out of the yard. We will reinstall and bend it down once it's warmer out, and I'm sure it will work even better!

This is easy to use to repair fence.

I've had my Purrfect Fence for many years. Suddenly I found that one of my cats was showing up at my back door (the fence is at the front of the house) and a group of raccoons arrived in the middle of the night to try to steal birdseed from the front porch. I check my fence and discovered that after all these years, the metal fence bottom barrier had rusted and the critters had discovered how to get in and out. I ordered new wire and reinstalled it right on top of the old, decayed wire. It was easy to do and my kitty is now secure in the front without getting out to explore and the raccoons can't get to our birdseed. Good product and I especially like the stakes.
