We’ve been trying to find a way to open up our patio to the cats, but we want to make sure they don’t escape! With this goal in mind, I went overboard and created the following architectural application:
Unfortunately this application was denied… (which we kind of knew would happen).
So, on to Plan B. Instead we built a barrier on hinges, so that it can be raised only when the cats are outside. The barrier uses 2″x3″ welded wire as the structural element and bird netting to prevent climbing. So far so good!
