Cat Training: September 2008 Archives

Continuing my quest to find the solution to my indoor/outdoor cat issues. So far, I've found underground electronic fences by PetSafe, and a cat gazebo by Kittywalk Systems.

Here is another option called Purrfect Cat Fences and Enclosures. It appears that it works for people with or without existing fences or for people who want to enclose their cats with a flexible fence that lets them see out but not get out. You can see in the video that the top of the fence angles in and over so the cat can't climb out.

Check it out, it looks like it offers your cat a lot of freedom while staying safely enclosed in your yard. They can run, jump and play while enjoying the outdoors.

Ok, so I am continuing my research on ways to keep Neo contained in my yard, without disrupting his fun. Yesterday, I told you about the KittyWalk system that is apparently available at Radio Fence also. I found out that Radio Fence sells PetSafe Premium Electronic Fences for cats.

Electronic cat fences were taken off the market for a while but I see they are back. They appear to have smaller collars and lower voltage. By the looks of it, the collar is small enough to be carried around by a cat and the system looks good, but I need more testimonials from real people who've used it.

I found some reviews online about Radio Fence, one of the top sellers of the PetSafe Premium Underground Cat Fences, and the buying experience was excellent, installation was easy, but no one commented on how their cats liked it and how it worked for their cats. So...what I'd like to know is, has anyone used this product on their cat and how well does it work for you and your cat? I'm thinking that this might be the way to go for Neo.

There are a few other options out there, so I'll keep you posted on what I find.

I've begun my research on what to do about Neo outside. He's an indoor cat who wants to be an outdoor cat. I found this KittyWalk product that seems to be very popular.

I'm not convinced that this will be good for Neo, but take a look and tell me what you think. I'll keep researching this and let you know what I find. I am not sure why this person lets her dogs have free run of the yard but not her cat? Maybe because the cat can get away and out of the yard easier than the dogs, but it seems a little unfair to kitty!
