Cat Fence Enclosure System - How it Works

The Purrfect Fence Free-Standing Cat Containment System is designed to secure a perimeter of cat-proof fencing. It can be configured to suit your needs and can use different kit sizes to make your system as spacious as you would like. 

The extremely strong yet flexible poly mesh makes climbing very difficult, but the safeguards for our cat containment systems are the Cat-Proofer™ extender arms which enable the entire upper section of the fence to pivot. The cat's weight causes these horizontal extension arms to swing downward, safely returning your pet to the ground. Once the cat's weight is released from the mesh, the spring-loaded extenders immediately return the upper section of the fence to its horizontal position.

Our system is built to last. The posts, arms, and welded wire are galvanized steel with a black powder coating and all the arm hardware and spring are stainless. All other metal components are galvanized or stainless steel and the plastic fence UV stabilized with carbon black and chemical UV inhibitors.

A 100-foot kit made into a square would be approximately 25' x 25' (625 square feet) but most customers use the back of their house as a "side" allowing a kit to make a bigger overall enclosure and easier access for the cats. One example of a single kit 100 foot kit enclosure off the back of a house would be 28' x 43' (so 28' out from the house - over 43' and back 28') making an enclosure that is 1,204 square feet. A 200 ft kit enclosure off the back of a house could be 65' x 65' (so 65' out from the house - over 65' and back 65') making an enclosure that is 4,225 square feet.

The system is designed to be installed by the homeowner so it is not generally considered difficult to do by a handy person (site dependent). If it is something you do not want to do yourself we would recommend using a local handyman. Written instructions and installation videos are provided. We are also available to help you figure out how to use our systems on your property and can also talk/email you through almost any unforeseen obstacles you may run into during installation: 888-280-4066 or email Sending pictures can be helpful :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Installation Video (Introduction)



Reference "What's Included." If your layout includes multiple turns or very specific side lengths, you may need additional posts (see product 2-Post Kit) above and beyond what is provided in the kits. To determine if you need more posts use these rules: 

  1. Every end and corner/turn needs a post.
  2. Every change in grade (up/down) needs a post. 
  3. Measure between the posts that need to be in specific locations (see rules 1&2) and divide by 14' (maximum post spacing). 

If the total posts you need is more than 8 x's the number of kits you are buying you need that many more posts.

The Installed Purrfect Fence - The Ultimate Cat Fence

The components assemble to create the purrfect barrier to keep your cats safely in your yard and also critter out! The top portion of the cat fencing uses out durable UV resistant poly mesh and the bottom few fet of the fence uses powder coated welded wire. This bottom portion serves as a "chew guard" which keeps cats from digging or chewing their way out, and it keeps critters from getting in.

Excellent product, easy to install.

We're a repeat customer, we installed purrfect fence at a previous home. It's easy to install and keeps our cats safe.

Excellent cat proof fence!

I installed the 150 ft stand alone system about 5 weeks ago and none of my 3 cats have escaped so far. I am really happen with the fence. The installation videos that were emailed to me were very helpful. Great customer service! I definitely recommend this fence.

Perfect solution for my rescues!

We have about an acre enclosed and cross-fenced with the free-standing Purr…fect Fence system, which includes four large gates and four regular gates, for our 27 rescue kitties. The first section has been in place for 10 years and, with occasional repairs, is still protecting the cats from predators and keeping them safe. It is not difficult to install and requires no expensive tools. The only invaders we’ve had are raccoons, who have thumbs and can climb anything. This fence is, literally, a life saver. Thank you for the amazing safety net which protects my babies!

Convenient & secure - veterinarian approved!

The set up was pretty quick & convenient, and my cats are safe, secure, and entertained! Really a win-win all around, especially in 5 kitty household where personal space can sometimes be a challenge. Here’s Orange Machine with his new winter coat getting ready to enjoy some fresh air =^..^=

So overall, we’re very satisfied, and as a veterinarian who specializes in kitties with my mobile practice, I will certainly be recommending Purrfect Fence to other cat owners - a great solution for scenarios ranging from behavioral issues, obesity, house soiling, to just plain old boredom - Thanks guys!

Ninja cat unable to break out

Our escapee cat, Aristotle, has been able to figure out all our prior cat-fencing. Not so with Purrfect. It’s been two months now since we installed the 1000’ foot containment system. We used the conversion system for two walls and the netting on the other two walls. He tested everything from walls to corners and he has not been able to find any weak links. Big success.

very good idea , so cats can enjoy outside without the dangers of the outdoors

it worked very good ! my cat was outdoor cat, but due to problems with my neighbor , i have to keep him indoors, . Matt was a great help with our questions when we installed the fence

Peace of mind knowing my cats are safe outside!!

This is my second Purrfect Fence purchase. I just moved into a new house a few months ago. I had the Purrfect fence in the yard of my previous house for 13 years and my cats missed being outside. So I bought another kit for the new house and my cats are happy again! They line up at the door every morning so excited to go out! They know the boundaries of the fence and don’t try to escape. It is easy to install and the 150 foot kit with 2 light duty gates we purchased took less than a full weekend to complete. The fence is so transparent that sometimes when you look at it you can’t even see it. I highly recommend the Purrfect Fence to anyone who loves their cats and wants to keep them safe while offering them the enrichment of being outdoors.
