Cat Fence Topper for Existing Fences

The system stops cats from jumping over a fence and is compatible to nearly any existing fence. Each 100’ kit of fence conversion system for cats comes with 12 spring-loaded arms, 12 arm mounting plates with screws, 100 feet of 4-ft heavy-duty black poly fence (1.75" x 1.75" grid), and 100 industrial grade zip ties.

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, attached with the included zip ties. Simply secure the lower portion of the mesh material to your fence or wall and your fence conversion system for cats is complete. If you’re looking for ways to stop a cat from jumping over a fence, Purrfect Fence’s Existing Fence Conversion System for Cats works for most 5-6 ft. or taller fences or barriers. If you have a shorter fence, consider our fence conversion system for cats for shorter fences.

Every fence is different, and there are no universally followed guidelines for post spacing, height, or materials used. Because of this, we also offer kits designed for 50 and 200 linear feet of fence. If you aren’t sure what you need, contact us! The experts at Purrfect Fence are happy to help you over the phone, by email, or through live chat.

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 fence conversion systems for cats 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.

Accessories are available for, decorative aluminum, wrought iron, and PVC fences as well as walls. 2-Pack of Arms are also available. Please email or call us at 888-280-4066 for custom orders or special needs.

- 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.

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.

Happy for my cats!

Very well. Also happy that it is almost invisible so the HOA won’t complain. We were even able to enclose their favorite climbing tree!

We love this fence! Purrfect!

We have a challenging landscape that makes cat-proofing really difficult. We started with a Purrfect Fence 17 years ago. This one is the best yet and so far? After a month, ALL of our escape artists have been contained!!

Very happy, works perfectly!

The installation was fairly easy. At a gentlemen's pace, it took a couple of weekends to get 230 feet of fencing installed. The sales team was very helpful in putting together a drawing showing us where to install the braces. Instructions and videos for how to do the corners, gates, and where the fence meets the house were very well done and fairly easy to follow. Most importantly, our cat only tried very briefly twice to escape and after walking the perimeter a few times he stopped trying and he has not escaped at all. On occasion we still let him out in the "big yard", but this gives us much more flexibility and allows us to let him out any time day or night into the back yard. We couldn't be more pleased. We were initially concerned with how it would look, but interestingly it is hard to see that it is installed from many angles in the yard and if installed as instructed it actually looks decent. We had one issue with a role of the fencing being less than square. They did mention that because of how the fence is manufactured this can sometimes happen and they don't consider it a defect, however, they did replace the roll without question. We would recommend it for sure!

Safe kitties = relieved owner!

The fencing arrived quickly - even all the way to northern Alberta! Installation was very straightforward and within a couple of hours our whole yard was fenced and the cats were outside enjoying fresh air. The fencing works exactly as promised and the design is so subtle that you don't even notice it's there. The cats spent a few days looking at the fencing but it's like they know they can't get past it and it's taken away that desire to escape. It's a big relief for us as cat owners and we're very happy we've found Purrfect Fence!

So happy I did this!

I have 3 cats... one elderly cat who has always been indoors and two younger cats that previously lived outside but have been indoors for about 4 years. I had been looking for a way to allow them outside safely to enjoy their freedom again and after doing some research, I decided to go with Purrfect Fence. I was able to install it all by myself (a woman in my 50s), except for a little help with drilling into a concrete wall. It's been completed for one month now. I waited to write my review to ensure there were no escapes. As of today, to my knowledge, my cats haven't even tried to jump over the fences. I've seen them look up to check it out but I think just the sight of the curved arms and mesh deters them. They are very happy just staying in the yard. I'm now able to let them out with confidence knowing they will not escape and they are living happier lives exploring instead of just lying around bored sleeping all day. I'm so glad I did it! Thank you Purrfect Fence!
