I Can See The Attraction To Such A Fence, BUT...
posted 6 years ago
I had seen advertisements for a fence similar to this (escape-proof with a tilted top) a LONG time ago and thought it was an interesting concept and definitely a product worthy of attention. I still feel this way, but personally see less of a need for it now that I have a large screened porch which keeps out most parasites (e.g., fleas, ticks) and gives me greater peace of mind.
The information packet does contain a lot of valuable information about the benefits of the fence and contains a small section of the fence so that one can feel its flexibility/durability. I thought the fence felt flimsy, but once I watched the DVD, I realized that the flexibility is intentional as a way to make the fence wobbly and a cat more likely to fall off IF it attempts to climb it.
Although this is advertised as an "information packet", I was disappointed that the DVD did not show much about the actual installation of the fence--this was the area I had the most questions, yet they weren't answered in the DVD. I got (and still get) the impression that one may TRY self-installation, but that this would be a BIG job and one that would be better left to professionals.
In the DVD, a fence was shown that attached to a backyard garage/building. I thought this provided a way for some animals--including one's cats--to have a way of "beating" the fencing system and making it less effective.
Finally, I think this is a good idea, but also believe that "indoor" cats can be content. Anyone who would like their cats to experience the outdoors in a "safe" way can either build a screened porch or install one of these fences.
Pros: Offers cats a safer way to be outdoors; supposedly "escape-proof"
Cons: Doesn't protect cats from parasites or other hazards that may be in the yard; Questionable strength/durability of fence

The cat fence
posted 6 years ago
I recieved the packet for the purr...fect fence today and looked over everything that came with the pack but I didnt feel that it was enough to make a firm dicision to purchase this product based on what I recieved. They have a great sales pitch and the matieral that they use for the fencing is great but it is also something you could probably buy at a local lowe's or home depot and make yourself. The same that I recieved seemed to be strong enough but it is a tiny square of material that you really can't base a decision on. I thoughts are that if you want to keep your cats in your own yard then this could be a great product but you couold save money and do it yourself...lol..
Pros: your cats can go outside with no fear of them wondering off
Cons: it is as pretty as a prison yard, lol..

Looks like a sturdy fence
posted 6 years ago
I really like the material the fence is made from. It's very lightweight and flexible, but still strong. It's also stiff enough that I wouldn't need to worry about my cats pulling it down and getting tangled up. The main drawbacks are the price ($495 and up), and that a cat who likes to dig (like mine) could still escape by tunneling under. Overall one of the better cat-fence products I've seen!
Pros: Lightweight, durable, adapts to any size/shape yard
Cons: Somewhat expensive

Information on the Purfect Cat Fence
posted 5 years ago
I don't actually have a Purr...fect fence, but I read the info. and watched the video. It looks like it could actually work. It supposedly keeps your cats from running away or getting hit on the road. Also, it keeps other animals, including stray cats, dogs, and even coyates out!!! It is almost invisable when you put it up so it's not an annoyance to look at. The creators said the material that's made of is very durable... They said a deer running full speed at the fence wouldn't break it; and cats can't chew through it. And the material it is made of is supposed to last for up to 10-12 years, even if it is in direct sunlight all day. Overall it looked like a good product, but like I said in the cons... It looked very expensive. But if your worried about your cats safety when they are outdoors; then it could be a good investment.
Pros: From the video I watched it seemed to be able to withstand outside predators.

an interesting idea a light weight fence that if the cat tries to climb out bends inward so they fall safely to the inside of the enclosure. the material seems sturdy but it would not be an attractive fence which could be a problem in some areas and depending on how high you would have to go it could also present a problem with zoning ordinences etc. still something that would keep your cat in the yard and out of harms way
Cons: cost and look
