Keeping cats in your garden with electric fencing
Unwanted cats in your garden can lead to unpleasant situations and sometimes even nuisance. Cats can completely dig up your garden, damage your flowers or plants or do their business. If cat faeces are left in a vegetable garden, it can cause diseases that are transmitted to humans. Moreover, the smell is anything but pleasant. Unfortunately, a fence or hedge does not solve cat nuisance. Gallagher has a number of solutions for keeping cats out. The most important components for electric cat fence are in the M10 starter kit. Electric cat fence is harmless for your pet. Our starter kits for cats use a very short pulse voltage. The voltage of the pulse is conducted over your cat's skin. This causes a startle reaction, but poses no danger to the cat.

Fencing for cats in your garden or on the fence
- For a garden system, you need short fence posts (50-80 cm), a good conductor (energiser wire) and a Gallagher fence device.
- For a system on a fence, you will need insulators, plus a good conductor and a fence energiser.
How does the fence system work?
The wire is run through the insulator (from A to B) and a second wire is run back (from B to A) through the same insulator. The wires should not touch each other. Once the cat's paws are on the fence, it makes contact with the earth wire (-). It then closes the circuit by touching the + wire with its head. This produces a startle effect, causing the cat to jump back and not enter your garden. You can also combine both systems should your garden contain both parts with and parts without a fence.
