Do you have a cat escaping UNDER your fence? Our pet barrier for the bottom of the fence is a simple yet effective solution to prevent digging. Whether your cat has discovered dips in the ground, dug a hole, or helped by other animals in the enclosure, our barrier will prevent escapes from under the fence. Our fence bottom barrier works with any fence type, whether you have wood, metal, chain link, PVC, brick, block, or others.

The fence barrier system uses galvanized and vinyl-coated welded steel wire to create a physical barrier that stops all traffic where the fence meets the ground. The welded wire is formed into an "L" shape. The bottom is staked into the ground with specially designed heavy-duty galvanized stakes, and the top is secured to your existing fence with fasteners appropriate based on the material. Held in place with your choice of staples, screws, zip ties, or fastener (fasteners are not included due to the wide variety of fencing materials, though they can be purchased separately). Read more about that in the installation section below.

We offer two different lengths of our fence bottom barrier kit. The pet barrier for the bottom of the fence offers 24 inches of tall welded wire (available in lengths of 50 or 100 feet), which allows for 8-16 inches of coverage on the ground and 8-16 inches of vertical coverage up the fence. A total of 24 inches of coverage combined. The welded wire squares are 1.75" x 1.75", so your cat or dog cannot scratch, chew, or fit through it, but grass can easily grow. The welded wire can also be trimmed to accommodate certain heights or work around obstructions in the fence line.

Prevent Digging and Escapes

Is your pet trying to dig its way out of your fence? Purrfect Fence offers fence bottom barriers to keep your pet in and predators out. Our DIY fence barriers are easy to assemble with minimal time requirements. You can install your fence and secure your yard over the weekend!

Top-Quality Materials

The fence bottom barrier’s welded wire is made with top-quality materials that outlast any other fence and weather conditions. Our pet barrier for the bottom of the fence will attach to the bottom of your metal, chainlink, wood, or vinyl/PVC fence. The lower part of the barrier simply stakes into the ground for an even cover around your existing fence. Voila! Your pet stays in, and your fence remains in pristine condition.

There is no reason to keep running after your pet or replacing expensive fence parts when you can use a safe fence for enclosing your pet in the backyard. Purrfect Fence’s Pet Fence Bottom Barrier is an excellent addition that will save you time and trouble. Our superior quality fencing will look great in your yard, and your pet will enjoy all the time in their outdoor oasis.

*Fasteners for holding the wire to the existing fence are not included. See the Installation tab for more information on what is required for your fence type.

Wrought Iron/Aluminum - UV-resistant zip ties (not included) are used to hold the wire mesh to your fence securely. One tie at least every 12 inches is recommended.

Wood - Use heavy-duty staples or "romex" staples (not included) to hold the fence bottom barrier to wood surfaces. If pickets are small enough, zip ties can also be used.

Brick and Block - Can be installed on these surfaces as well. Specialty masonry fasteners will need to be used with washer heads (not included) to securely hold the mesh wire to the surface.

Chain Link - UV-resistant zip ties (not included) are used to hold the wire mesh to your fence securely. One tie at least every 12 inches is recommended. Alternatively, you can use Hog Rings, which are much stronger and more durable.

My cats are free! They love being able to go outside without a leash.

One cat tried to "climb" out. We found him dangling from the mesh and screaming for help. He has since given up.

It's purrfect for cats that go outside

It has prevented my cats, who previously were getting out under the fence, from getting out now.

easily closed up gaps under wood fence where dog was digging to get out. East install, perfect solution.

Great!

Fence was easy to install, we did it in the winter and was not able to fold it as intended, but it still has worked great. It's filled in the gaps with our chain fence so that our puppy couldn't dig her way out of the yard. We will reinstall and bend it down once it's warmer out, and I'm sure it will work even better!
