If You Fence It, They Will Stay


Does your kitty love to roll in the dirt? When confined safely indoors, does she cry and cry and cry and cry and cry and cry and cry? Various products exist to allow safe outdoor playtime where your cat will be content (or at least less audible). If you've got a sturdily fenced-in yard, Cat Fence-In swears that its unstable (and handsome) strip of horizontal chicken wire is impossible for cats to climb (www.catfencein.com). A similar inward-arching fence is available at www.purrfectfence.com. Or, you could build your own cat fence with instructions from the Feral Cat Coalition in San Diego (www.feralcat.com/fence.html). Alternately, many varieties of cat enclosures are available as well – we trust you know how to Google.
