Cat proof gardens

I want to get my garden cat proofed so I can start letting out the kitten out.

Garden isn't massive but I figure being in a cat-proof garden with some soil and a tree and sunshine is better than being inside all the time. Don't want him to roam into other peoples gardens/houses.

Does anyone have any experience with the various cat proof fence topper companies? Any recommendations? Also some photos to see how unobtrusive (or not!) the toppers look would be great.

I'm not keen on the prison yard look that most are going for, given it is a small garden this will be very obvious.

Two cats currently come through my garden, the come from the road side over my fence, then go up onto my shed and then into the garden at the back there so I'm slightly worried about 'trapping' other cats in the garden as well. Anyone had that issue?

Thanks :-)

Thanks - yes I saw that one - looks like it woudl be v effective. Have you had a quote loveka?

I have also seen this one which might be a bit more unobtrusive although it looks more expensive (based on nothing but my impression form the photos!)

I used protectapet around my property and it's the best thing I ever did I had two cats hurt by neighbours .one killed the other nearly killed.,resulting in a major operation to save her life.It was the best thing I did for my cats and myself.I was constantly trying to keep them indoors which was impossible as every time I went to the bin etc they would run out .Then I would be literally ill with worry at what would happen to them. It was expensive but well worth it for me and considering the cost of the op to save my little cat who was nearly kicked to death to the point where all her organs were in her rib cage which should have been in abdomen...it works out cheaper in the long run with having evil shits like that who can get hold of cats.I would tell all cat owners to get it to safeguard their cats.

Belle2828 that sounds like a glowing review. Would you be able to post a photo of a bit of the garden so I can see what the fence looks like in a 'real' garden not on the 'sales' pages of the websites?

I'm hoping the installation will be no more than £2k... Maybe i'm dreaming!

Belle I am so sorry you went through that. My heart aches for you, it's just unbearable.

Thanks Loveka. Sure Kiroro I will post an image for you. It's looking out from back and there is a Cattery I had built for them initially but it wasn't ideal so then had fencing done.

Other cats won't get in as if a cat can get in your cat could get out by getting on same roof.The system goes on all the sheds and areas where a cat may use to jump on to get out.I have two sheds and the system goes around the top of sheds.Believe me I don't even notice it and what I was worried about living on coast was that it would rip off when storm Dora hit but it didn't.I kept looking because that was a massive test I thought and I had to keep an eye on my cats.....

Has anyone used Kazecure- look a bit less obtrusive... www.katzecure.com our cat was run over and sadly killed at the weekend (devastated) and if we have another we will have to consider this- anyone used it?

I got a quote, but is was much, much more expensive, plus I was worried about the weight of the system and my only fences coping with the weight of it plusnstring winds etc.
