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 24' x 24' (576 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 100-foot kit enclosure off the back of a house would be 28' x 40' (28' out from the house - over 40' and back 28') making an enclosure that is 1,120 square feet. A 200 ft kit enclosure off the back of a house could be 64' x 64' (64' out from the house - over 64' and back 64') making an enclosure that is 4,096 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.

Cats love being outside!

I’m out in my garden every day and the cats are stuck inside. I put up the Purrfect Fence and now they’re outside with me. It really is purrfect!

Meredith D
We love it!

This fence is genius. We took our time putting it up and between some bickering and fighting we made it work. It’s not perfectly done but good enough for us and our cats! And it’s super secure. They are so happy!

Rebecca W
Our cats love it!

Our cats love our Purrfect Fence! The freestanding enclosure was relatively easy to install and is very sturdy. We live in an area with a lot of stray and outdoor cats, as well as traffic, and we feel so much better knowing that our cats are safe inside the Purrfect Fence. I also think our cats feel more secure, as they don’t try to escape or get out at all. I wish we had known about the Purrfect Fence system earlier - it has made it so easy to give our cats outdoor time without worrying about their safety. It’s truly the best money we’ve ever spent!

Worry Free Kitty Playground

Since our fence was installed, we are happy to let our cats out to play every day. It is nice not to have to watch them all the time, especially when we have other things we need to do. I love our fence, thank you!!!

Robin Halley Roden
Ecstatic with Purrfect Fence!!!!

Jennifer at Purrfect Fence helped walk through and map out what was needed for my unusual set up for the Purrfect Fence. I have three different types of fences and one side with no fence at all. Jennifer’s guidance and patience made the process pleasant and she purrfected our Purrfect Fence. Do not think twice! Purrfect Fence really does work when installed properly. My two cats have a new lease on life - they leap, they run, they stalk and do what cats naturally do, but we have no worries that they will be harmed or lost outside our property. Thank you Purrfect Fence and especially Jennifer for helping us create a fabulous outdoor oasis for our cats. I have told everyone I know about the Purrfect Fence. Just think about this - people fence in their dogs who live anywhere between 8-15 years sometimes longer. People should fence in and protect their cats who usually live longer than 20 years. Cats are very much a part of our family. Thank you Purrfect Fence ... you truly are Purrfect!

It works

Cat does not escape

We love it !

We recently moved and no longer wanted our cats to roam free. The purrfect cat fence lets them go outside without the risk of getting hit by a car or getting into fights with stray cats in the area. It’s a win, win, win for all of us !
