A Cat’s Curiosity Contained:

Zeus.

Cats are natural explorers, driven by their boundless curiosity and instinctual need to roam. While this adventurous spirit can lead to delightful discoveries and entertaining escapades, it can also expose them to various dangers. Traffic, predators, and toxic plants are just a few of the hazards that lurk beyond the safety of your home. As responsible pet owners, ensuring the safety of our feline friends is paramount, and one innovative solution is the use of an electronic cat fence. Another sad but little know fact is the 50% of cats under the age of 5 are injured or killed on the UK roads each year.

Protecting our Song Birds:

Sadly with the increase in cat ownership over the last 30 years researchers have linked a dramatic drop in our song bird population. Preventing cats from roaming can also play it’s part is helping our dwindling song bird population to survive.

Addressing Concerns

Some pet owners may worry about the static impulse used in electronic fences. It’s important to understand that the impulse is mild and designed to be a deterrent rather than a punishment. The goal is to create a clear association between the boundary and the impulse, helping the dog or cat understand where they can and cannot go (with the aid of training flags). Most pets learn quickly and seldom test the boundaries once trained.
