We've created an exciting outdoor (covered) enclosure for our two spoiled cats and want to erect a wrought iron fence around it so they can't escape and get into trouble. How close together do we need to keep the slats of the fence?
I've read that some cats can squeeze through an opening as small as 2.5 inches wide so we know we'll have to be under that but how much under? Obviously, we don't want to have to worry about them getting their head stuck!
Other than a solid fence, does anyone here have an actual fence, in real life, that their cat hasn't been able to ever squeeze through? If so, what is the distance between the slats?
That's a cute writeup! And it looks like all the effort paid off.
We're not attempting to cat-proof our entire yard though. We have a cool little cat enclosure built into the side of our new house with fun places for the kitties to climb and lounge and bask in the sunshine but need to close off the front with a span of wrought iron railing. I'm thinking 2.25 inch gaps are probably narrow enough. We could go smaller but tighter spacing means reduced visibility through the fence and makes the whole thing feel more like a cage.
