Cat Fence Topper for Existing Fences

 

The Existing Fence Conversion System's revolutionary Cat-Proofer™ extensions make it easy and affordable to convert most any 5' or 6' (or taller) fence or wall into a cat-proof barrier.

The pivoting fence extensions are attached near the top of the inside of your fence and the high strength mesh material is stretched between them attaching with the included zip ties. Simply secure the lower portion of the mesh material to your fence or wall and your cat-proof barrier is complete.

The system will adjust to fit just about every gate and corner situation making it very versatile. Included with each 100' kit are (12) Spring-loaded arms (12) Arm Mounting Plates w/ arm setscrew, 100' of 4' high heavy duty black poly fence (1.75" x 1.75" grid) and (100) zip ties (for 50 ft order increments it will include half of the listed components.) Keep in mind that every fence is different and there are no universally followed guidelines for post spacing, height, materials used,etc. A 50ft kit is designed for the average 50 linear feet of fence. 100 ft kit is designed for an average 100 linear feet of fence. A 200 ft kit is designed for the average 200 linear feet of fence. If you have gates, turns, short or long spans between posts then you may find that you need more or less components than comes with the kit. If in doubt, contact us first!

❗ Have a fence or wall under 5 feet? Use the Conversion System for Shorter Fences to cat-proof fences and walls as short as 3' high!

The system is built to last. All arms are galvanized steel with a black powder coat finish, the arm hardware and springs are stainless steel and the fence material is UV stabilized with carbon black and additional chemical UV inhibitors.

IMPORTANT: The fence mesh is the same 1.75" x 1.75" very strong poly material we use in our Free Standing System. - NOT a flimsy netting.

- Fasteners for holding hardware to building/home are not included. Fasteners should be chosen based on the type of material covering the building/wall/fence (wood screw, masonry screw, etc.)

-As the table above shows, a 50-foot kit comes with 50 feet of fencing material, not 60 feet.  A 150-foot kit comes with 150 feet of fencing material. It is advised that you consider ordering approximately 10% or more than you need to allow for cut pieces and minor errors in installation.

-The above table applies to orders placed after 12/26/19.



Installation

Items of note when planning your order/layout:

-Each existing fence is unique! The maximum span between arms is 12-14 feet. 8-10 Feet is preferred. Count and measure the distance between your posts to ensure that a kit will cover your fence.

- Keep in mind that our Existing Fence Conversion System will provide up to 12" inches of additional height from wherever the mounting bracket is secured. So, if the bracket is mounted at the top of a 6FT fence, then the finished Purrfect Fence height can be as tall as 7FT. This is adjustable and can be set at any height you prefer based on changing the height of the mounting bracket.

- Our patented system works by forcing your cat(s) to climb up the fence which activates the spring-loaded arm from the bottom if they are able to reach the top (most are not.) So, for maximum effectiveness, it is important that the finished height of your Purrfect Fence be tall enough so your cat cannot simply leap over it. For most domestic cats the minimum finished height (measured from the ground to the tip of the Purrfect Fence extension) we recommend is 6FT, though we prefer it to be taller when possible. Even so, we have had customers tell us it was effective for their cat(s) at shorter heights. However, higher is always better and may be necessary if your particular cat or cat breed is capable of leaping higher than the average healthy and athletic (domestic shorthair) cat. 

Fasteners for holding hardware to building/home are not included. Fasteners should be chosen based on the type of material covering the building/wall/fence (wood screw, masonry screw, etc.)

-Gates in your fence line require special consideration. Read below for more information on gate planning and installation.

Gates

Gates need to be considered separately for your layout plan. Each gate in your existing fence is likely to need additional components depending on the location and operation.

Inward Swinging Gate

Many inward swinging gates require 1-2 extra arm/bracket(s) per gate. Your situation may vary. If you have questions please contact us.

Outward Swinging Gate

Many outward swinging gates require 2-3 extra arm/bracket(s) per gate. Your situation may vary. If you have questions please contact us.

Purrfect fence is the BEST!

My cats are super happy and absolutely love it now that they go out in the backyard! When they were exclusively indoors, I used to play with them everyday to avoid behavioral issues but now, they chase insects, butterflies, and an occasional squirrel so I don’t have to play with them that much anymore. They also fight less with each other. I think they appreciate being able to go out because they’re definitely a lot cuddlier with me now. LOLOL

Purrfect fence gives me peace of mind that my cats are safe and can’t escape. At first, I was concerned about the price and how it would look. Turns out it looks good! Installation wasn’t a problem and the price was worth it! The Purrfect fence team was also very helpful and responded back quickly whenever I have questions (and I did have a lot) lololol.

All-in-all, my cats and I are very happy with the fence and I wish all cat parents would get it for their indoor cats! :D

PurrFect!! Kitties are so happy!

We’ve had our PurrFect fence up for over a month now and our two kitties are loving it. They are more active than ever and we have the confidence it will continue to keep them in the yard. The system is super flexible too. I was able to install just under 300 feet around obstacles such as small trees and trellises without issue. I couldn’t be happier and neither can Lulu and Poppy.

I’m relieved, they can’t escape.

I have cats that want to be outdoor cats more than anything. I put up the fence conversation system which safely allows my cats to be outside all the time. With the exception of the corners, it was easy to put up. The system is well worth it, I have 2 very happy cats enjoying the backyard.

It really is PERFECT

Not only is my pet safe from jumping onto the wall of our yard, but strays and coyotes won't jump down into it. It seems they recognize it as a barrier or trap for them. Live in the desert and we've seen coyotes run the length of our block wall fence.it definitely provides us with a secure and safe place for our boys.

Provides total peace of mind!

Our pair had already leapt over our 6' fence and we were terrified they'd get lost or find the busy road we live on. After two attempts each with the hugely easy to install Purrfect fence, they now stay safe and wistfully watch the birds from the ground. Woe to the poor bird who swoops into their space, however!

Flexible system with lots of help from company

First, I have cats who have become snacks for coyotes. I had a 6 ft chain link fence installed to keep the cats in, the coyotes out, with an 8 ft driveway gate at one end. It worked until I got a new cat. She is the most flexible cat I have ever had and I've had a lot of cats. She was up and over the fence without an issue. I researched fence "toppers" to keep her in. With Purr...fect Fence, I sent photos with questions and got solutions before even making a purchase. When I did purchase, I purchased only a section for the fence to try it out. First, could a 73 year old woman install it with some help and second, would it contain the cat? Both answers were "yes". Next I purchased enough for the entire fence. Both my helper and I watched the installation video. After installing we have some sagging sections, mostly due to the way we had to install the bracket for the arm to the post (a problem with the fence not the conversion system) resulting in uneven heights of the arms. Never-the-less, this does not effect the way the topper works and most sections look good. We had to innovate when it came to attaching a final arm to the large post of the driveway gate. We zip tied a 2x4 to the gate then installed the arm and painted the 2x4 to blend it into the post. It worked. My cat continues to climb the fence at times. She will drop off when she gets to the mesh and has not escaped once. It is both a relief and stress reducer to have her free and safe to be out-of-doors and on her own at last! Thank you Purrfect Fence.

Freedom without worry

I have four cats which are indoor/outdoor cats. When we moved to our new house, we installed a privacy fence and added Purrfect Fence. Before we moved, we had a large catio for our cats to go outside in at night and when we went on vacation, which they enjoyed very much, but the cats were still tense because they are used to going outside. At our old house, some of our neighbors complained about our cats roaming at large. I've searched for years for a solution for our cats to be able to go outside, without annoying our neighbors or threatening birds. Purrfect Fence solved my needs, and now I let my cats outside without stress or worry. Installation was not difficult--we have over 300 yards of fencing and were able to install our fence in a weekend. The videos that you can watch for instruction explain everything, and customer service was available and responsive if I had any questions. I described our yard and fence and sent some pictures before I ordered, and Purrfect Fence helped me order everything I needed. We used chicken wire along the bottom of the fence (stapled to the fence and using ground staples along the ground). My cats love their back yard. They feel secure and so do I.
