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.

Purrfect Fence

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.

I think it will be perfect

I havent had a chance to use the fence yet. Its part of another area we are enclosing for a feral colony that has to be relocated. We are still workong on it. It looks great and we are very hopeful it will keep the cats in. Customer service is amazing and they are so helpful!

Deborah Almlie
Our Purrfect Cat Fence has been a success!

We needed to redo our Cat Fence because our new adoptee, Freya was an exceptional climber, and escape artist, and was continuing to confound us by escaping the old enclosure. After Jennifer's advice on how to install the new Purrfect cat fence correctly, we are happy to report that she has not been able to escape from the new enclosure. Both our cats Hobbes and Freya are now able to enjoy the back yard and patio safely.

Melissa McManus

I use this fence to keep my cat in and other animals out. It has kept the deer out of my garden as well. I like that I can still see the rest of my backyard, and so does my cat.

We love our Purrfect fence!

It's really great having peace of mind knowing that our cats are safe and they can enjoy being outside in our yard. The fence is very well made and actually blends in somewhat with the outside foliage. Also, we appreciated that customer service was always available for help when we had questions while installing it. Thank you for a great product!

Well-designed, safe option

Instructions were clear, logical, and thorough. Installation went smoothly and cats are enjoying their new space!

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!
