We all get a little stir-crazy after being stuck inside for long; and your cat is no different. We spoke with Jennifer Smith of EasyPetFence.com to learn why a Kitty Corral Cat Fence is a must to improve your cat’s mood; health and well-being.
- We’ve never heard of a Kitty Corral Cat Fence. What is it; and how is it being used?
All cat enthusiasts should consider building an outdoor cat enclosure in their yard. Cat enclosures gets cats up and moving and provide them with a safe environment to explore the great outdoors; stretch their legs; and play with other animals. The cat fences are available in 6’ and 7.5’ feet heights and different lengths to choose from.
- What material is the cat fence?
Cat enclosures are made from a durable polypropylene material that gently sway to deter the cat from climbing and jumping on the fence. The bottom includes a welded wire fence mesh that prevents cats from chewing their ways out to the other side. The fence material is environmentally-friendly; humane to all animals; and will last at least 15 years.
- Are cats able to escape?
If installed correctly, cats will not be able to escape; and there are recommended accessories that can be added to a cat fence, such as ground stakes, to further prevent cats from sneaking out at the bottom of the fence line.
- Are cat fences easy to install in yards?
Cat fences are designed with the do-it-yourselfer in mind; so, there won’t be a need to call an expensive fence installer to build the fence for you. Cat fences are easy to install; and can be done over a weekend with a few helping hands. These systems can be permanent fixtures in a yard; or can be dismantled before heavy snow storms or hurricane-like conditions.
- Can a cat fence keep out stray dogs?
Yes. The top will prevent stray animals from leaping over the fence and potentially harming the cat. In addition to keeping out stray dogs, a cat fence can be used for bird control and stop tick-carrying animals, such as deer, from approaching pets.
- Can a fence improve animal health and wellness?
Yes. Cats, like other pets, need an area to explore new terrain; play; and exercise. Having a fence in the backyard makes it convenient for pet owners to check on their pets while allowing them the freedom to roam in the yard. Cat fences can also be used as dog fences for domestic animals to play together! Cat owners with fences notice a change in their cat’s mood and physical appearance: They stop having stiff joints; they become more energetic; and they look leaner. Since over 60% of cats, and 56% of dogs in the United States are overweight, we really need to get our domestic pets out of the house.
