Letting your cat out of the house can be a very daunting experience. Do you trust your cat to come back?
It's always risky to let your cat out, even if you truly believe that your cat will always come back. Sadly, many cats never make it back home, road traffic accidents being the most common cause, but cats can also get lost, get into fights with other cats, get stolen or injured.
However, this dilemma can be a thing of the past. Cat proofing your garden, cat enclosures and even balcony enclosures are the new way to go!
No more feeling guilty about leaving your cat in the house all day and you don't need to worry about your cat's whereabouts and how long they're going to take to come back! It's extremely satisfying to know that your feline friend is enjoying the outside world safely and within close proximity to your house. Cat enclosures are designed in such a way where cats are unable to get out and other animals are deterred from getting in.
ProtectaPet is a UK company that specialises in Pet Containment Systems. They offer fantastic solutions on how you can cat proof your garden, including working around existing trees and sheds. They offer full installation services, so you don't need to worry about whether you're doing it correctly or not. For all those people who enjoy DIY, you do have the option to purchase the equipment and complete the installation yourself.
If you would love to take the project on yourself then I would encourage you to follow the instructions on their website on how to build the pet containment system. It's not complicated at all and the instructions are very easy to follow.
Cats love the outside world and it can be done safely. Unfortunately, we do live in a very busy world and it's never safe for pets to be roaming outside the house on their own.
Protect your cat from the possible dangers they may encounter - cat proof your garden!
You might also want to consider cat runs, which are becoming increasingly popular. They are a cheaper alternative or it could also serve as a temporary solution until you decide to cat proof your whole garden. It would be great if you could install a cat flap that leads to one of these cat runs, that way your cat can go out whenever they want!
