Electric fences for cats

Electric fences for pets are not dangerous. An electric fence uses one very short pulse voltage. This very short pulse causes a current which hardly goes through the body and instead is conducted along an animal's skin. This provokes a fright response but involves absolutely no harm to the animal.

Electric fence system to keep cats out of your garden

For a garden system you need short fence posts (75cm), a good conductor, such as Vidoflex 6, and a Gallagher fence energiser.

For a system on the garden fence, you need insulators, as well as a good conductor and an energiser. How does this system work? The wire is led through the insulator (from A to B), and a second wire is lead back (from B to A) via the same insulator. The wires should not touch. As soon as the animal touches the garden fence with its paws, it will make contact with the earth wire. It then closes the circuit by touching the + wire with its head. This provokes a fright response, with the cat jumping back and not going into your garden.
