The ProtectaPet® Freestanding Cat Enclosures are a fantastic, innovative solution for indoor cat owners
In Britain, it is commonly accepted that cats have the right to roam freely. However, free-roaming cats have a life expectancy of two years, as opposed to the otherwise expected longevity of 15 years. This is due to exposure to dangers such as increasingly busier roads, fighting with other cats in the neighbourhood, consumption of pest control, such as slug pellets, amongst many other risks.
ProtectaPet® have added a freestanding cat enclosure kit to their range of UK designed and manufactured pet containment products, which is available to purchase for DIY enthusiasts or can be professionally installed by the experts themselves. The innovative company, which designs unobtrusive cat containment systems providing cats with safe access to the outdoors, has been retailing cat fence barriers (suitable for securing the perimeter of a garden already marked with a fence or wall) since July 2013. They hope that the latest freestanding product will increase accessibility to cat owners who have privet hedges and large gardens which they wish to partition.
About the ProtectaPet® Freestanding Cat Enclosure
The ProtectaPet® Freestanding Cat Enclosure is made from pregalvanised and powdercoated steel for endurance. It features patented CruciLock™ ground spikes with self locking push fit design. The enclosure is modular so it can be constructed to the client’s individual requirements, allowing for the addition of gates wherever required. The DIY ProtectaKit includes all the components required to assemble the cat enclosure including, a welded steel mesh chew guard which runs along the bottom 60cm of the fence, protecting it from wildlife damage.
In smaller outdoor spaces, on patios, or in cases where the client requires high security, there is the option to build a sealed mesh roof cat enclosure. This system uses additional ProtectaPet® modular components to construct a fully steel framed enclosure which supports a mesh roof (up to a maximum width of 2.4 metres). These steel frames are currently available through our installation service as they are made to order and can be customised to the appropriate size and shape of your patio or outdoor area.
ProtectaPet® take great pride in their exceptional relationship with their customers, beyond sale and guarantee period: they keep in touch using social media and monthly newsletters. They have over 100 glowing reviews on Facebook and 40 reviews on Google+. In recognition of this reputation, they have been nominated as ‘Cat Product I can’t Live Without’ for two consecutive years in the ‘Your Cat’ magazine Product Awards.
