Oscillate Kitty Fence

+8
Answered
I need to keep the kittens we will adopt later this year in our yard and keep other cats and wildlife, including large raccoons out. I have a rectangular yard with several levels and wood fencing. I don't want to need to ask my neighbors their permission to install it and need ideas to get around having to ask. The model I intend to install is an Oscillate Kitty Fence which you can see on Youtube. Ideas Please!

    If you install fencing in your yard and it meets local codes, you don't have to ask permission. I'm not understanding why you would unless you are installing something on their fence. In which case you either need to ask or you will have to establish containment in your yard, not theirs.

    I searched but Google could not find a single site with anything called "oscillate kitty fence".
  • Interesting! Works the same as coyote rollers. I would call and chat with them about installation options. I would think your neighbors would be ok with it as there are many people who do not like cats in their yard. Certainly worth it to keep them in your yard and the predators out. Just watch for hawks, owls or flying prey.

    • Ok I would install brackets to the fence on your side and call the manufacturer to see how to adapt to attach to the brackets. It will work, just might need a bit of creative modifying. Can't wait for you to get the kittens! 🐺🐈🐺🐈🐺🐈

    Thinking about this too but that won't keep the raccoons out when my fruit trees have mature fruit. Also neighbor cats are cutting through my property on a regular basis and I would like my cats to have no fear in their yard.

    The host of Cats 101 on the Animal Planet said this past weekend that cats should not be outside and live longer if kept inside.

    There are some cute, but expensive, cat containers/play yards you can put on a patio or porch to allow your darlings to get some fresh air and sunshine. Look on Amazon.

    I am a cat lover myself and would never again have an outside cat because of the horrible experience we had when the cat got fleas right before Christmas. What a mess having her dipped - made her sick - as well as having to turn of the furnace and bomb TWICE.
