    Do any of you know of cat fencing that is available in UK that can be used to keep cats in garden???

    I have a small enclosure for my cats but would love them to be able to roam about the garden without wandering.

    I know there's fencing that can be bought from the States but it is too expensive for me.

    Thanks

    I had all of my cats on an Invisible fence for years without them caring about it. I should add here that it was set on beep and not shock BTW, it could never hurt them, they hated the noise.

    I don't know if this is available in the UK. Also your gardens are so small usually there that I wonder if you could just fence a larger area.

    One thing we discovered when we had our vcats on 3 acres with invisible fence was that after all this trouble the cats usually hung around in a small area near the house and deck.

    Right now we have a large covered deck and a 40ft by 17ft area with 8ft high wire fencing that is the official Catio.
    This is pretty safe area here and I think they would be OK but I also like to keep the birds safe too, so this works.

    I also worry about dogs getting after the cats, even though I love dogs sosme really nice pets cannot tell the difference between a cat and a rabbit.

    Love Anne Cromwell
