fencing a garden

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I need advice on how to fence my garden. I am about to move in a house but it is in a town and next to a road. I was wondering how to "secure" my garden so that my cat can't get out and other cats in. I've considered putting a high fence but cats are good climbers... So what about an electric fence? I don't mean the "invisible" ones with your cat having to wear a collar, but a special electric wire (suitable for small animals) that you put on top of a fence.
I found a website about it: http://www.sureguard.com.au/pingghow.html
What do you reckon?!
I don't know what to do! I want my cat to be safe (I've taken her to the vet's too often) and I want a lovely garden as well...
Please, tell me about your own experience!

Thanks for your help.

Please don't use an electric fence with your cats. It may cause them to become fearful and although the shock is harmless, it does hurt. There are a lot of different types of cat-proof fences around and this site (Meowhoo) gives a great list and information abut the different ones.
