Yes! A brief survey of our online reviews will demonstrate our success rate. ProtectaPet products have kept over 27,000 cats safe in the UK. While we don’t guarantee to keep your cat in your garden for liability reasons, if our customers do encounter any problems, we will work with them to find a solution. Please take a look at our reviews.
Cats will explore all possibilities of getting out so we can install cat tree barriers to prevent cats from escaping or accessing birds' nests. Trees can be secured using a range of methods depending on their breadth and proximity to the boundary. Please get in touch for advice specific to your garden.
While cats do not usually have the physical capability to climb over the barrier from inside the garden, they do have the physical ability to jump the barrier from on top of the fence. However, most cats will see that there is no exit from the garden and choose not to enter. Our customers report that neighbour’s cats tend to choose not to enter their gardens because they cannot see an escape. If you are leaving your garden unsupervised while going on holiday for instance, it is a good idea to leave an escape route for any cats that might enter (a wheelie bin against the fence is a good solution).
ProtectaPet recommends that you always contact your neighbours to gain permission to install a barrier. However, the installation process does not usually require access to the neighbours’ gardens. Installing a cat fence barrier has a positive impact on your neighbours: your cat won’t be leaving faeces in their flower beds and if they have cats too, you are minimising the risk of conflict. As can been seen from the photographs, the visual impact from their side of the garden is negligible. After use, our fencetop barrier system is removable and the only evidence would be the remaining screw holes, which can be filled. If your neighbour would not like anything attaching to their fence, we can install our freestanding system in front of the fence.
Yes! We propose solutions to any garden obstacles and can find a range of solutions including building freestanding enclosures alongside hedges. Please get in touch to discuss your exact requirements.
It is imperative that you regularly check to see if any plant growth is breaching the barrier system. Excessive plant growth may enable your pets to climb over the barriers. Furthermore, it is a good idea to remove any fallen leaves from the barrier.
We use the highest quality materials including tanalised timber, UV stable mesh and galvanised steel to prolong the life and durability of your system. In heavy snowfall, as a precaution, we suggest that you remove the snow from the mesh.
We have not tested this product against the capabilities of foxes and therefore we can only say that the barrier may deter foxes from jumping over your fence, though it is unlikely to stop them.
ProtectaPet cannot offer planning advice or guidance. Generally speaking, our cat fencing solutions are not permanent structures and do not exceed 2m in height. Planning regulations vary by area and so we advise you to contact your Local Authority for advice specific to your proposed project. Please keep in mind that planning regulations in front gardens and in conservation areas are more restrictive.
