I ordered an Existing Fence Kit from Purrfect Fencing earlier this year and would like to thank Kevin for his prompt service and superior product. From placing the order to delivery I only waited 2 weeks. I live in an old Victorian house so I thought it would be problematic to install but it was unwrapped and completed in 2 hours. It has made such a difference to my cats. They are much more contented now that they can come in and out as they please and can have the best of both worlds without any danger from traffic or other cats. I can't think of a better way of looking after the cats and my vet, who had never heard of this type of fencing, came round to have a look and will be recommending it to people.

I would just like to thank Purrfect Fence for finally making it safe for our 7 little babies to venture outside to enjoy the fresh air. Over the past few months we have tried lots of home-made devices and spent countless pounds and hours out in the garden trying to thwart our one little Houdini. Everything would initially be fine and we would feel so relieved but then after two or three days he would find an escape route out. It is now two weeks since we installed the Purrfect Fence and little Bertie (AKA Houdini) has not managed to get out. We cannot express how pleased we are with the product and it is so wonderful to finally be able to go to work every day knowing that all 7 cats will be safe all day and most importantly still alive when we arrive home! Thank you again.

Attached are some photos of the completed cat run. It has been the best thing ever for me and the cats, they get to go outside and I have peace of mind.
We recently ordered 5 Purrect Fence kits and are delighted.
The peace of mind is worth everything – we have lost 2 cats on our supposedly quiet lane, but the lane gets short cut traffic that thinks it’s fine to speed as there is very rarely traffic coming the other way.
Luckily we have a large garden with lots of trees and have enclosed the whole lot with your fence. Our 3 new kittens don’t know the difference of being ‘safe’ but our 5 yr old is a bit put at not being able to wander at will but remains safe and happy getting used to it.
At the time your fence arrived we had a landscape gardener here so he erected the fence for us. After the first stretch of fence, and after watching your DVD his team were dab hands at it. I am so enthusiastic about your product.

Greetings from Belgium!
We installed our Purrfect Fence system here a year ago and it is performing as you advertise PURRFECTLY. Our cats have a great back yard experience.

Got cat fence up. I just need to put some tape round a couple of trees and they can go out unsupervised.**
Anyway… my friend is coming down at the weekend and is keen to see the finished result.
I have attached them for you J
**(Important Note: Trees INSIDE of enclosures need to have a smooth metal “Flashing” material placed vertically on the trunks to prevent cats from jumping up the tree and escaping)

After buying 2 fences, I am delighted that my cats are at last happy and safe outdoors. After all, I had 2 fairly cheesed-off (slightly chubby) cats here before finding a suitable way of letting them out safely.
At the moment - as things are for an average UK cat, it's a choice... either safe, fat, bored and frustrated or happy, free, fit and run over by a car...
I am working in liaison with a veterinary of 14 years experience, who will provide health and care information. I will promote your fencing system, so as to encourage improvement of welfare for as many cats as possible.

We installed our fence over a period of a few weeks, working mainly at weekends. It took a while for two not-very-fit fifty-somethings but as we used 4 kits and 5 gates it was quite a large installation. If you do one that size you MUST get the hogringer and tie puller as they make the job bearable. Well worth it though as the boys (two one-year-old Maine Coons) love going outside now, and we love the fact that they are safe! We have also noticed that we don't come home to lots of pencils and pens on the floor (they used to steal them from the kitchen counter), and there is less fur on the carpet.
They love going outside and chasing bugs, leaves and butterflies. Also they are fascinated by watching birds (we had some young pheasants just outside the fence last week), rabbits (which are now kept out of the garden) and the neighbourhood cat who comes and watches them from the other side of the fence! They haven't tried to climb the fence; once Harvey pounced on it about 2 feet from the ground when he was chasing a fly, but he just fell back down and showed no inclination to climb it again. Thank you Purrfect Fence for making us and the boys happy!

Dealing with the company has been a real pleasure. The kit is exceptionally well made and packaged and the instructions are accurate and very helpful.

Hope you are well? I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help with the installation of the cat fence. It is working out really well, and my son's allergy is no longer a problem. Will take better pictures when I get a sunny day (will also write a glowing testimonial. The weather in Scotland is terrible at the moment.
Once again many many thanks for your help

Just like to say thank you for the advice, ordered my fence on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday!.

Finally, our good old British weather gave us some glorious sunshine over the Easter week and after quite a bit of previous rain the ground was perfect for putting up the Purrfect Houdini fence system for our two cats.
It took my dad and brother about three days to fully install (watched by two little curious Burmese faces though the upstairs window). It looks super and is terrific. The cats were first able to go out on Good Friday afternoon and spent nearly all of the remainder of that day, Sunday and Monday in the garden. They normally sleep in the afternoon for quite a long spell but they were too excited for that and come evening time they could scarcely keep their eyes open. It was really uplifting to see them exploring round, chasing anything that buzzed by and enjoying the freedom and sunshine.
I don't have a digital camera but will arrange to borrow one from work so you can see how it looks in our English garden. I should explain that I bought the house new three years ago and the garden has been just lawn. I was waiting to find out the best way of keeping the cats happy out doors before planning the garden. What we did was to dig out a plant border around the outside edge and place the cat fencing inside so that it runs from one corner of the house to the other, with the length of the back of the house completing the square and the gate to one side. When the plants grow up the fencing will be virtually invisible.
The rabbit is also benefiting. It has some enclosed runs but now can also be let out to run round for an hour or so each day. Fortunately, it not a burrowing kind and gets on with the cats.
I'll send you some visible proof when I can but for now I wanted you all to know how really pleased I am. I have been telling everyone I know and some people have even been over to see it. I will fill in your questionnaire and send some ides of how you could get the product known over here. I think you might find a lot of people interested in the UK as cat deaths on the roads are a major cause of distress.
It seems to me your system is perfect because it combines a deep understanding of the behaviour of cats (and other animals) and what is needed for their security, with an understanding of what's important for that special relationship between people and cats. We don't want them penned off from us in outdoor runs. We want them with us- able to enjoy our living space inside and out. My cats can now enjoy our garden with us in total security and for me that's priceless.

Just me from Belgium – now sunny and cool vice the rainy and windy climate when I received the delivery of the fence.
Once the weather calmed and I took some time off from work, we installed the fence. It took us about 3 days to do it and with a half a day taking down the existing fence. It turned out that we were able to extend five feet out from the existing fence line. I cannot explain how my spouse did the math, but we had two extra fence kits. Yet again, I did not verify the size of the backyard either. We only used two sets minus one fence pole and the gate section.
On the first day, after removing the old fence, we had the 24 inch stakes in the ground where my spouse had great difficulty in getting the ‘self-drill screw’ to go through the stake. This prompted our call to the company and luckily, we got to Matt! I am sure he will recall the call from Belgium. Did I mention that all my seven felines had taken their positions on the window sills inside watching us? They knew what we were doing, this I am sure.
For the two spans of fence on either side of the house which sit on top of the slate walkway, we have placed large decorative garden cement slabs [about 2 inches in depth] on top of the steel bottom fence to secure it. It gives the felines a platform to sit on.
Your video is clear in the fence installation and now that the task has been completed, looking back, it did not take that long. Our fence looks just like what you advertise!
The fence gives my felines the freedom they so desired and us the freedom not to worry about any escapes. I then designed and installed a screen flap in the kitchen screen door so the felines can enter and exit as they wish. This allows me to keep the screen door closed to keep out the bugs and bees!
Your marketing of the fence in preventing escapes is the truth! Let me share an incident with you. While my felines were out, they had a neighborhood feline visitor. ‘He’ sat down outside near the corner in the shade and just looked at all my cats who took a similar stance on the other side of the fence. ‘He’ and one of my cats seemed to be almost nose-to-nose through the fence! No meowing, no growling, no hissing. Quite unusual! After a time, ‘He’ just got up and ever so slowly sauntered off to the bushes behind him. That was that!
I must thank you for your patience with me and your prompt email responses while placing my order. Great customer service!
All the best to you back in the States. Have a great summer!

What can I say.
My fence arrived quickly and went up without any trouble at all. My cats were overjoyed to be able to enjoy the outdoors and explore.
I just wanted to commend you and your team for an outstanding job. It just doesn't get better than that.
As a personal aside to you, Kevin, you are one of the painfully few people who actually answered two questions when two questions were asked. That's rare.
Liz Thomas - Mansfield
I'm sorry I wasn't at home when you rang last Friday so I couldn't thank you personally for a wonderful product!
We took some time erecting the fence because we kept hitting problems with the geology of this area, but in the end it worked out fine.
The peace of mind that it brings me cannot be described. After years of worrying and anxious waiting for the cats to come home, I can now keep the cat flap open to the back garden 24 hours a day. It is fantastic!
Thank you once again on behalf of my cats, Murphy, Mia and Moshi and of course me!
Angela - Somerset
I have received the fencing kits this morning from Basildon - such a short time from ordering - it's amazing! There are two 3' gate kits instead of the 3 ordered, but I guess that's to follow as I heard Katie say they might not have them in the UK just now, hope that's the case anyway.
Maggie D - Milton Keynes
My fence arrived at 8.00am UK time this morning, and considering I spoke to Katie less than 4 days ago, I can only be highly impressed.
The video is great, and I am looking forward to starting installation tomorrow evening.
I will let you know how installation goes, and send some pictures of my cats enjoying there freedom once we have it up.
The fence has been bought to keep 4 cats in my garden, I have a 5th due to arrive in September, the only concern is my Bengal, if it holds her in the garden, it will hold any cat!!!
Many thanks for a great service,
Adrienne - Cheshire
Thank you very much for all your help, our cats are so pleased!
