Since 2015, Cat Containment Systems (CATFENCE.NZ) has been helping cat owners keep their pets safe and happy at home, as the exclusive NZ distributor of the amazing Oscillot system.

We’re a small Auckland-based company that grew out of a hobby business breeding low-allergen Siberian cats for families that could otherwise not have a cat. We were the first in New Zealand to provide scientifically measured allergen levels for our kittens, and have always believed in using evidence to measure results.

Through our experience working with cat owners, we realised that the best way to keep cats safe from harm was to keep them on their own property.

Now, we’re thrilled to announce that we can help even more cats live happily ever after, with the introduction of Purrfect Fence to New Zealand.

Made in the USA, Purrfect Fence has been proven over 20 years of service in North America, the UK and Germany. Now, CATENCE.NZ is the first Purrfect Fence distributor in the southern hemisphere!

Over the past few months we’ve been working with the owners of Purrfect Fence and it’s become clear that we share the same philosophy – cats are our number one priority! We’ve been impressed by the level of customer service they provide and the customer support systems they use, which look very much like what we’ve been doing for the past 7+ years.

So, what is Purrfect Fence?

At first glance, you might think Purrfect Fence looks like other products you’ve seen, in that it mounts to the top of the fence and creates a physical barrier to your cat.

But we believe it’s a superior product, and here’s why:

  • Purrfect Fence uses incredibly strong poly mesh as a barrier. It’s actually used in deer fencing, and has a 600-pound (270kg) breaking strength!
  • The patented pivoting-arm design prevents your cat from climbing upside down to get up and over the inner edge of the mesh. As soon as the pivoting arm starts to swing downward, your cat re-orients itself (in order to land on its feet) and releases its grip.
  • Easy to install. There are no cables, wire clamps, turnbuckles or ropes. You attach the poly mesh directly to the arms and to your fence. Full instructions are provided, and we also have a comprehensive installation video that will help you plan your system, even with the trickiest fences.

Purrfect Fence has many other advantages, which we’ll talk about in future blog posts.

Our first shipment of Purrfect Fence is currently on its way to New Zealand. We’re accepting orders through our website, but delivery will be after mid April. We think it’s worth waiting for!
