A single 100' Free-Standing Cat Containment System is designed to secure a perimeter of 100 linear feet but you can construct the system to suit your needs and can use multiple kits to make your system as big 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 single kit made into a square would be 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 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 two 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 difficult to do (site dependent). If it is something you do not want to do yourself we would recommend using a local handyman. An instructional DVD is included along with written instructions. 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 :)
(1) Free-Standing Cat Containment System - 100' total shipping weight 140lbs, ships in four packages. In multi-kit orders, we will ship 200' fence rolls in place of 100' fence rolls and tape a couple of same boxes together so a (2) kit order will be six total packages instead of eight (savings in shipping is passed onto you via multi-kit discounting).
A 50-foot kit contains exactly half of a 100-foot kit and includes all components necessary to complete 50 linear feet of freestanding Purrfect Fencing.
Our freestanding system is designed to be installed by the average handy homeowner. Below you will find links to instructions as well as a short video describing the process.
A 100' kit includes (8) post assemblies (posts, sleeves, arms etc). If your layout includes multiple turns or very specific side lengths, you may need additional posts (see product 2-Post Kit). To determine if you need more posts using these rules:
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.

Our story is that we had two cats who grew up together, our black girl cat and a boy cat. I let them go in and out as they pleased, as I had all of my previous cats. We had installed a cat door into the garage, so anytime they were out and we weren’t around to let them in the house, they could get in the garage for warmth, shelter or safety. My boy cat, Jethro was killed by a coyote in the summer of 2017 when he was 12. We found part of him in the woods behind our house. We were heartbroken. I like to have 2 kittens grow up together, so they have a playmate, so we immediately got two boy kittens after that.
We had a covered deck, so we screen it in ourselves to make a place for the new kittens to be able to get fresh air and see and hear the outdoors while staying safe. We installed a cat door from the house to the porch, so they could go on their porch as they wished. They and my older girl kitty loved their screen porch.
Our kids are now grown, so last fall, we decided to move to a one story house. It is an older ranch house and it has no back porch or deck or anywhere that we could adapt to make it to where the cats could get fresh air without a major undertaking. I saw your Purrfect Fence online and I investigated it. I watched every video that I could find and read the reviews and testimonials. I looked at it for a couple of months. Finally we bought it and installed it. I have attached a few photos of them in their yard. The light colored cat and stripy gray cat had never set foot on grass before we got the fence. They were hilarious doing some high stepping in the grass the first time they went out. The black one is my nearly 14 year old girl cat.
We put a cat flap in a window, so they can go in and out as they please. We also built a basic cat tree from perches we removed from our old screen porch when we moved, so they would have somewhere to get up off of the ground. We hope to build them some more sitting areas in the sp...
We went nuts trying to find a good way to keep our cats outside. After many failed DIY attempts we gave in and spent the money on the perfect fence. I hate to admit it but I should have done this all along and saved money and we wouldn't have had one of our little kitties escape and go missing. Would recommend to anyone wants to keep the cats safe in your yard.
The Kitty Garden was given its name by my friend that helped me do the installation – just the 2 of us put it all up – not too bad! Thanks for all your help – it was well worth it – the kitties love it! I am seeing a whole new side of them!
Late last summer, a stray kitty adopted us. He was very thin and his ears were all bloody from weeks of scratching due to a terrible case of ear mites. I decided that this cat would be an indoor cat. After a week of constant meowing, I decided it was selfish of me to keep “Honey Bunches of Kitty” inside since he was used to the outdoors.
I realized that he was better off being happy even if there was a chance I could lose him also. In early April, Kitty got an abscess on his face due to cat bite. The vet became suspicious because he was getting abscesses so easily, so he decided to test him for feline leukemia and aids, which is not uncommon in stray cats. As it turns out, Honey Bunches of Kitty has feline leukemia which makes him much more susceptible to infections. This time, I felt I had no choice. Kitty would have to be an indoor cat. We kept him in for 2 very long weeks of constant meowing and howling. Within a few days I placed an order for 300’ of Purr..Fect Fence. While we were waiting for the fence to arrive, I prepared the area, cleaning out brush and trimming tree branches. It took a weekend for two of us to install the fence. Getting Purr..Fect Fence was the best thing we ever did. Our whole backyard is enclosed and Honey Bunches of Kitty can keep us company on our deck and around the hot tub and pool. He’s so much happier now and so am I.
I lived many years in different parts of the country including California, Colorado and Florida. Everywhere I lived I had neighbors that complained about my cats and I had many cats that just disappeared. My dream was to have a place where my cats could live outside and be safe and not be a bother to anyone. The time finally came when I was preparing to move back home to Alabama and I discovered the cat fence on the Purr…fect Fence website. That, immediately, became part of my plan. We totally enclosed the back yard with the "Houdini-Proof Fence" 18 months ago. We have 11 cats that now live inside this safe enclosed area. Not one has ever gotten out. We love our Purr…fect Fence!
We live on a four-lane state route which gets busy for parts of the day, and I was afraid if they got out again, they might go in the road and get hit. So I started checking in my Cat Fancy magazines for something else, and found Purr...fect Fence. I ordered it and a gate, and my brother-in-law and I installed it a few weeks ago.
In the few weeks the Purr...fect Fence has been up, my four kitties really enjoy it. They can eat grass, lounge on the chair, or just lie on the grass. I've always gone out & visited with them everyday for about two hours. Now, I spend part of the time in the Purr...fect Fence and part in the shed. They hardly come inside anymore. I feel better knowing they're protected by this fence because we have raccoons, stray cats, and other animals around there. I think they're more relaxed having a larger area to play outside. Scratch used to go out and pace back and forth like we've all seen images of caged animals doing, and I was concerned she was starting to be bored, so I had to do something.
We received everything we ordered and needed quickly. Installation, for the most part, went well, the main problem we had was with the hardness of our ground - maybe you could develop heavy-duty poll inserts and stakes for those of us in the desert :)
But the best part is we LOVE OUR CAT YARD!! We have six cats and have always believed that although it is dangerous to let cats outside, they love to be outside and are healthier. So, we let them out, always worried something would happen to them (which it did to a couple) and figured a short life outside was better than a long life trapped indoors.
When we erected out cat fence we did not know how the cats would take to it - if they would try to escape, etc. But, after a short adjustment period, they are very content, the oldest (13 years old) to the youngest (just over one year old). Even my most restless wanderer never even made an attempt to escape! They have a cat door to go in and out of the house at will, and can now stay out all night on warm summer nights.
We can also now feed birds without being guilty of luring them to their death.
I would highly recommend the fence to every cat owner, it is definitely the best of both worlds for them, and are very content within their yard. We are considering adding on to the size of the enclosure in the future with additional fencing from you.
Thanks for a great product!
