The Cat Fence-In System. It's GRRRREAT!




I've brought up the cat fence-in system before, and many of you have asked about it.

When my first cat, Yogi, a stray that made me fall in love with cats, got hit by a car and killed, I was more devastated than words can describe. I decided that I would adopt a new kitty from Cats Are Us, but knew I had to do everything in my power to keep it safe. I also brought Tarzan into the family, and he was used to being outside, as he lived the life of a stray Tom cat bachelor before trusting us enough to join the family. While I believe it's a good thing to keep cats inside 24/7, I felt that cats who had already lived outside might not like being confined as much as those who never knew the outdoors, and I also wanted to be able to sit outside with them.

I heard about the Cat Fence-In System and checked it out online and we decided to get it. Our front-yard is fenced in, and the cats have access through the pet door in the attached apartment where they live. As you can see by the picture, it's not very noticeable. Brackets hold up a mesh fence topper, which sticks out about 20 inches at an angle, preventing a cat from jumping to the top of the fence. You also have to make sure you don't have any trees or shrubs too close to the fence line, or a cat can climb high enough to jump over. The fence company also sells tree rings to prevent a cat from climbing trees. In our case, we cut down one tree.

The Boss installed the fence-in system on top of our existing fence, but any fence company could do it as well. You can put in on top of any type fence--wood, chain link, etc. Our front yard is fairly big, so it cost around $550 for the materials to do the entire area, though we saved by not having to hire someone to install the topper. It's not that hard to do for anyone handy.

There are two types of fence: one can be used on fences at least 5 feet high, the other, which we got, can be used on fences at least 3 feet high and also prevents strays from being able to jump in. With added hardware, you can even cover a gate so it can still be opened.

Here is a link to the Web site. You can find out all the details and even watch a video of a cat trying to get out of the fence. My cats never even tried to jump up and over, though Tarzan got out once before we cut down the tree that was too close to the fence line.

So Catfish and Tarzan have their own jungle to play in and enjoy the outdoors, but still be safe. Check it out at:

Sandy, that fence is cool! I know your cats are loving to go out and are still safe. Ours doesn't know what it is like outside so don't have to worry about it but it's great to ahve that fence for those who have been used to going out.
When we helped move the storage stuff we saw Elaine's fence and she told me it was what you have. Glad your kids get to enjoy thier outdoors!

Do you think the cat fence could keep my pomearnian in too? She likes to climb our chain fence like a ladder and then when she gets to the top she hops over. I am going to have to check out the website...This might be just what we need. One of our cats keeps going out the doggy door that is on our back screen door when the main back door is open (only when we are home of course). He wants to sit out in the backyard, but I worry about him trying to get over the fence and run away so I always make my hubby go drag him back in. Chance (the cat) just loves to lay in the grass. Maybe this will work, thanks for sharing Sandy

Perhaps we could get one of those fences to hold dragon in the hottub? Typical man pam, slam and run!

I can verify the cat fence is awesome since I got to see it first-hand at Sandy's house....and yes it would prevent an adventerous pomeranian from escaping too!

It's definitely something to check out. My Larry insists on going out. He doesn't seem to go far but I don't watch him the entire time. This morning I saw a neighborhood pit bull running around with 6 feet of chain dragging behind him. Larry was inside but I shudder to think what would happen if he was outside with a dog running loose. Larry seems streetwise and always watches and gets wary when he sees anything unusual on the street. But I still worry. I may have to work on hubby to put up a cat fence so Larry has to stay in the back yard.

Trouble the sick cat update: The vet was surprised to see the recnt trun of events, Trouble being blind. He thinks it may be an opportunistic infection that she got while being treated for the massive bladder infection she had. He says she has uveitis and Trouble is staying with the vet so that can do more blood work, pump her full of fluids and try topical steroids on her eyes. He doesn't want to inject the steriods because that could seriously compromise her already weakened immune system. He thinks she will regain most of her eyesight but that some damage may have already been done. He says that cats and dogs seem to do rather well with less than full eyesight. I will be thrilled to have her with us. I was very concerned that she might not make it. She dropped a few more ounces and is very very thin. We hope to bring her home Saturday morning. Dr. Sykes said the the blood work should be back tomorrow and they will have a better idea of what's going on.

Pam, the Dragon is still around. I’ve been watching from the sidelines. I felt as if I walked into an episode of family feud with Daisylouu and Sandra (also known as Sandy) lol. I also have been very busy with yard work and the restoration that I do. Then there were the sick cats and cat and dogs that passed on. I was sorry for them all, but I didn’t know what to say. It was not appropriate to be breathing fire, so I decided to save my Dragon fuel for a more opportune moment. All the girls were sharing their sympathy in a way I could not.

Daisylouu, the Dragon does not slam and run. Dragons stick around when they find a good thing. Dragon in a hot tub of full females. Lets think about this.

One Hot Tub, $5,489.00
Toys and Accessories $423.89
Beverages $359.69
Daisylouu in Red Thong Bikini, Priceless

Cat fence. I think Guinevere needs to get one of those cat fences. It would be good for the King Feline Evil Demon Devil Cat and Prince Not So Annoying to go out and stay out for a long time. They do have a tendency to go over the fence and Guinevere freaks.

Dragon, That must be a prety small Hot tub if it only cost $5489. A good size hot tub that seats 15 is closer to $9-10K.

Unless you were planning on it being small.

Dragon was probably thinking it would be snugglier if it was small. That way his wenches would be all close to him........

Don’t know about a small hot tub Stacey. There has to be plenty of room for a dragon’s tail to swish around!

Stacey, you would be proud of the Marine museum! Really worth a visit and it is free to enter! I took lots of pictures that I will pass along if you send your email address to Sandy to pass along to me! Plus I am still waiting for those Wench pictures too! I have a little something to mail you also if you will give up your home address. I did think of you while I was there….

I love the cat fence! Our yard is 2 and half acres fenced in on two sides with chain link and barbed wire behind us and nothing in front. This would cost us a fortune to install plus our girls are happy being indoor cats now so I do not see us investing in one. Although, if it will keep the Rhodesian ridgeback from next door out, I may think about it! Found two huge piles of poop in my yard after our return from VA… Argggg…

We brought back the turtle with us from VA! We think it is a female due to her smooth belly, the males have arches for mating purposes. We have nicknamed her Miss Tuttle for now. She is stressed and will not come out from hiding under her hay but in time, she will settle down and get hungry and come out for some greens. Today once the Saint gets home from work, we are going to Petsmart to pick up some new stuff to make her a larger home. It will be interesting Foster parenting a turtle for a month! I snapped a picture of her and will pass it along to Sandy for posting if she wants to… I also have tons of animal stories from our trip. My favorite I will share now…

We love going on little vacation trips so we can enjoy a bed with no animals in it! Am I the only one that thinks a vacation with no animals is a bit of a treat? So we were really looking forward to a good nights sleep with no fur in our face! Well, well, well… The Saints parents are pet sitting for his sis. Their house contained, Jasper the dog, Fluffy the bird, the turtle and thier cat Missy. In the back yard they have a pair of swans nesting also! Felt like we were in the middle of a zoo. At night, Missy the cat decided she did not like sharing her bed with a dog so she joined us instead! That cat snuggled and purred and walked all over us all night long! She ended up sleeping in between me and the Saint. We did not get much sleep with her movements but she was such a happy cat. The second night Missy raced us down the hall and into the bedroom again. She was up on the chair at the foot of the bed when Jasper came bopping in. Of course this was at the exact moment my bra came off! I screamed and dropped to the bed all in one swoop as he nosed the door open! I would have died if father in law had walked by the room at that exact moment! As Jasper started by the chair sporting Missy cat, Missy cat leaned down and swatted the fire out of him in the head! She was defending her new sleeping spot. She had given in to him and let him have mommy and daddy and her bed but now he was horning in on her segregate mommy and daddy. Jasper did not back down and he jumped into the bed and under the covers. It was so funny to see Missy trying to get him out of the room. Once mom in law missed Jasper, she came to retrieve him from us. She is getting so attached to Jasper that I think her daughter may have a fight on her hands when she returns from her TDY trip next month!

I love the cat fence, and your yard looks absolutely beautiful. I would love to do something like that-not only to protect my kitties but also to protect the birds and baby rabbits from my kitties.


Stacey, I think we are all waiting for those wench pictures-me too! We should all get together in the hot tub with our drinks and toys and make some REAL wench pictures.

Pam, haha...I am laughing at your natural charm and sweetness comment.My natural charm and sweetness tends to be much more natural and sweet when there are toys and drinks involved. Who had the bloomer dropper recipe? I meant to ask for that before it disappeared and forgot. I think we need a re-print. It is almost Friday right?

Adrienne, it’s good to know my girls ain’t cheap. I went with a conservative figure of $5,489. There is a waterbed / spa store that has a 50% off sale one week every year. So, with that figure, we are actually looking at a $10,978 hot tub!! But, since my girls ain’t cheap, we’ll go with the super deluxe model. Price is no object. We’ve got to have plenty of room for me to “swish my tail”, as Skeeter put it.

Shannon, aka O’Malley, the drinks are of each and everyone’s choosing. There will be everything from The Beast to The Mexican Gasoline. Not to mention everything in between the two. And since I don’t know what kind of “toys” my wild and crazy wenches prefer, you will have to bring your own. As Daisylouu has said previously, bring PLENTY of batteries, if you need them. I will have a few Dragon accessories of my own……

Pam, as I said before with Daisylouu in the “size” discussion, as long as your charms are “natural”, you may wish you had a fence to keep me out.

Maybe we can have theme hot tub excursions. We can have “red thong” night, and I will wear mine, as long as each of you wear red thongs too. Won’t that be a sight to behold!?!? Shannon, aka O’Malley, there is a great photo opportunity. “Wet Wenches Gone Wild” in the hot tub. I like it. I see a mega marketing thing here, girls, not to mention a new reality TV show. It could be sponsored by “Dragon Enterprises”. Wouldn’t that be a hoot??

Dragon, I do see the Dragon Enterprises sponsoring the hot tub night and us having the time of our lives but---- I am not wearing the butt floss no matter what! I told you I have tried that and it ain't a good feeling! A red two piece suit I can do but count me out on the the thong! I don't do no thong thang!I mean I do want to have fun and that floss would prevent all the fun. I guess I must have a very sensitive butt! But on the "wenches gone wild" I am liking that!

Oh Lord! Wet Wenches Gone Wild! This must be one of those ADULT reality shows that you have to see in those little booths at the adult bookstore. Or, at least, that's what I HEARD.... I'm sure I would never have been to one of those places.......

Sleeping without pets. It's funny, when I go visit my sister and sleep alone in a bed,it feels weird and reminds me of how much I miss my babies! Yes, it's nice not to be awoken or have only an inch of space while they sleep stretched across the entire bed, but I think I prefer having them with me!

Dragon,we missed you. It's not the same here without our fire breather!

Sandy, I agree with you about sleeping without pets. When we go somewhere I miss not having our girls sleep with us too. I wake up a lot during the night anyway so I don't mind being nuged or walked on. Sometimes our daughters Roxie dog has slept with us and man is she ever a bed hog!

I've been sleeping alone since Hubby has been in CO. Well not completly alone. I get Stella up on the bed with me and with her snoring and her size, it's like he was never gone. She loves it since Hubby doesn't like for her to be on the bed when he is home. When we moved he put the bed back up on its frame, so I have to help her on the bed. Have you tried to lift a 116 pound dog? If I don't help her, she stands at the foot and groans at me. But it's worth it. Hubby and my mother will be her tonight, so I won't be sleeping alone. (That is if they make it here without killing each other first.HA! I'm wondering if sending them on a 2500 mile trip together was a bad idea.)

O'Malley, you had me a bit freaked out as Pam! I was thinking that I missed someone new while I was away. Whew, glad you got me straight on that one. I had to laugh at the vision of blue plastic hot tub and plastic drinks! Fun-E.....

Adrienne, I hope hubby and mom make it home safely! That is a long drive, we did it one time! Fairfax, VA to Denver, CO with a loaded camaro and cat to boot! I did not have a 119 pound doggie to sleep with me when the Saint left for a 10 month TDY in Bosnia. When he would take TDY trips, I had the entire bed to myself and it was hard to share it once he returned. So once he signed on for that 10 month deal I had to come up with a plan to not take over the bed. I bought a large stuffed bear to take his place! That bear had tears and snot all over him by the time the Saint got back home but by having Bearsy sleep in his spot, the Saint was welcomed back into the bed as I was use to sleeping with something by my side! I still have Bearsy in case the Saint should leave me again but luckily with his current job, very few TDY’s…

I will fess up on the booth thing. …. My crazy gang use to do those “Road Trips” to Nashville on boring Saturday nights back in the early 80’s. Road Trips usually consisted of us getting the munchies and driving all the way to Nashville to eat at Arby’s! I swear, I am not joking! Clarksville was small back then! One night they had the bright idea to go to one of those places. I think it was called lower Broadway or something like that. It was a seedy place and I was so naive and scared out of my wits but went along like a dummy! There were 11 of us and we crammed into one of those booths and started to drop quarters. The clown of the group did the speaking for the silent movie being displayed on the back of the door! It was so funny that we all were cracking up to the point that they ran us out of the place! Later on at home that night, on the news they busted the place and were showing people being dragged out the front door in hand cuffs! I would have died if my parents had to drive to Nashville to get their daughter (the one that never did bad things) out of jail for being in a seedy joint like that! I don’t recall if I ever told them that story or not but now I guess they know as mommy does read Pet People at times! Sorry mom, your perfect kid was not so perfect at times!

Oh Pam you are a dreamer also! I dream every night and in living color. Some times I wake up so exhausted from all of my activities during the night in my dreams! I think I would wake up feeling better if I did not remember my dreams but oh well, I have dealt with this my entire life. I wish a professional would analyze my dreams as I do have some crazy ones!

That is funny about the turtle dream. I reckon my personal story to you did indeed help you when you were feeling a bit blue that day!

Skeeter, girl another thing we have in common. I left out some details on the turtle dream. I actually dreamed my friend got the turtle in a divorce settlement,ha and there was a lot more going on. I do relate to what you are saying on the dream thing. I have the most vivid -in color detailed dreams ever! I see details in them that other people say the never remember. It is a real pain in the a-- sometimes! And I have a lack of rest from them too.They can be helpful though so don't worry about it too much, just learn to interpret them better. I have learned how to let them help me work through things, it really does help to solve problems sometimes. And sometimes a dream is just a dream, not every one is a problem solver. You can learn which is which bt it takes time.
And agin, yes your Miss Tuttle story made me feel much better on a day when Irelly needed to. Thank you again!

Skeeter and my long lost sister Pam, I have a story to tell you.

It was an early spring day in East Nashville’s Shelby Park. The grass was a deep green. A green when in daylight looked like it was in the shade. The grass was soft and cool to the touch. I was shooting a movie in the park. The scene for today was a train that had jumped the tracks. It runs down the hill beside the tracks where a group of people were having a picnic. The train plows down the hillside making huge gashes in the ground throwing up dirt and rocks everywhere.

The people out on the picnic began to run in every direction trying to get out of the way of the train that was now plowing though the picnic grounds. Men would run in front of the train grabbing kids and then jumping out of the way just in time before the train came though. The train barreled down the hillside and crossed a road where the land started to level out. After crossing the road, the train went a short distance before plunging into the river. Major chaos going on all around. People running, screaming, and the sheer terror of it all.

I start yelling, “Cut, Cut. That was not how the scene was supposed to play out. Get the train back on the tracks, fix the ground, and get the people back where they belong. Need to do it again.”

I would have to re-shoot the scene four or five times in the dream, and never got it right. There is so much detail to the dream. All the senses are included in the dream. You can feel the sun on your face and the breeze blowing your hair, smell the fumes from the train, feel the vibrations through the ground, hear the smallest sound. You can almost feel the terror of those in the path of the train. It is so vivid. I have this same dream often. And I’m totally worn out when I wake up. It is most unusual if I don’t dream every night.

The dream I have had the last two nights was that I could fly. No super powers or any thing like that, but I could fly. My flying abilities started to get weaker. I went to the doctor and he told me that the deterioration of my flying abilities was due to my consumption of alcoholic beverages. If I continued to drink, eventually I would lose my ability to fly. It would be a gradual loss of my flying. By the time I woke up today, I could only fly as high as the tree tops. Guess I didn’t want to give up my Mexican Gasoline. And the whole idea of my being able to fly is really weird, because I am afraid of heights.

We are cut from the same material. It it a kind of hell sometimes yet at others it is eye opening. It opens doors, we can be creative and we can be a pain in the butt but we are never boring!

My goodness Dragon, I can totally relate to that dream! I don’t usually have the same dream but have dreamed of flying! Hey Pam, I bet Fly boy dreams about flying.. ha that was a joke as he does fly often…. I had thought of keeping a log of my dreams and having them analyzed but then thought twice as I would be to afraid of what the outcome would be! They may put me in a nut house or something…. I never get harmed in a dream. I always wake up before hand but usually in a sweat but will hesitate to go back to sleep for fear I will continue the dream. Have either of you woken up from a good dream then tried hard enough to get back to it and did? I have done that with some dreams and it is strange how you can get back to a dream after waking up…. How do you make the Twilight Zone music, I think that is appropriate now…..

Pam, we are not cut from the same material, I am male, and so I am cut from the superior material. I can understand that you wish that you were cut from the same material seeing how you’re just a mere female. Just kidding Pam. I couldn’t resist the pun.

Skeeter, in my dreams I do feel as if I live in the Twilight Zone. I do have some of the weirdest dreams. At one time I started have the most horrific nightmares, and was waking up at 3:45 each morning. It was always the same dreams. This went on for several weeks as in Ameville Horror. As quick as they started they went away. I got absolutely no rest for about three or for weeks.
If I’m real tired I’ll talk, and some times walk around in my sleep. I once was talking in my sleep and called wifey pooh Tina. That’s not wifey pooh name. Boy, did I get quizzed on that one. I also call wifey pooh (Before she was wifey pooh), while I was asleep, at work and told her that New York called and I was going to be in a Broadway play. I told her I was going to play a six foot green frog. What else would a Dragon play? Go figure.

Oh Dragon, those freaky dreams can make you sweat an dred dreams, like some I've had and yours too Skeeter.

Sometimes taht has happened with good dreams too and those I like.
And Dragon, it's good you retracted you statement about being superior cause for a m inute there I though I just might ahve to kick your butt,ha. But being the brother I have always wanted, I'd have had to let you slide I guess. Man the things you do for those you love.

Skeeter, Fly Boy swears he doesn't remember any of his dreams. The thing is I have had to wake him from night mares, I know he is dreaming of some of the hairy situations he has been in with his career. He will never tell me no matter what and I know it's because there are just some things he can never tell me and thats ok. I feel bad for him when he has one of those nasty dreams though.

Dragon, if not for woman, you would have to put your own red hots in your coffee and I guess look at your self in the mirror when wearing that red thong! Without woman, who would appreciate the thong! You need woman, admit it Dragon man!

Oh Pam, I know about the bad dreams that Fly boy can sometimes have. We have good friends that deal with this as well. He had a job so secret in Vietnam, that there is no record on his service! He does not like to remember the things he had to do and see but the dreams keep it alive for him. Of course I don’t know what he did and saw because if I did, he would have to shoot me! I do wish there was a pill to take to make his dreams go away for ever! For me too but as you said, some of those dreams get really juicy and are fun to have! Kind of like Dragon and Tina. I love that one. I talk to the Saint at times in my sleep but I usually wake up soon after as I come out of the dream. He talks to me a lot in his sleep too and we carry on full conversations then he does not remember them the next morning. Strange stuff the mind....

Oh I just remembered one on the Saint... He hardly ever remembers his dream either but when he does, they are priceless. He usually has a convulsion type thing happening to his body that wakes me up. I wake him up from the dream and he starts to laugh as they are so weird... The one that stands out in my mind is great. He was under a table in a ball room when Michael Jackson walked into the room. The Saint was on all fours under the table barking and snorting at him trying to make him leave the room! This dream took place during the big Michael Jackson trial a while back. I told the Saint he was watching way too much Fox TV news!
