Update: August 11, 2001

As the years have gone by since we first modified the fence (1994), our cat population has grown. And what worked for older, heavier, less adventurous, more sedate cats no longer worked. We had to continue to modify what we had done, to compensate for the younger, more intrepid cats. This is what we've had to do:

When we first got Ciara, she was about four months old. She had a problem breathing, which turned out to be a naseopharangeal polyp. But the vet first thought she had a very bad upper respiratory infection. Because she didn't get much air through her nasal passages, the vet didn't want to spay her. She went into heat a few weeks after we got her and boy, was she determined to find a mate. We'd find her out front, on the roof, climbing the gate, you name it. Because she was so tiny and lightweight, she was able to climb up the gate and pull herself over. This is when we raised the height on the fencing around the gates.

The gate was done with two separate sections of wire, one on either side of the gate doors. Wire was left at each side so that they could be hooked together, for closure of the opening.

The wire extends flush with the wall.

The corner of the barrier, where the two sides meet. The tops overlap.
