Cheapest way to cat proof this gate?

Post by soliloquoy » Sat Jul 07, 2018 9:30 am

I was thinking a sheet of plastic with a few holes in to tie, but a brief glance, showed that that was pretty expensive.
I was looking for removable solutions.

Thank-you :)

Now it makes sense, chicken wire or 25mm mesh

eg. https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-25mm-Ga ... m/p/187722

its easy to form to shape, most of the cat pens are made of the 25mm mesh, and I have made storage baskets from it for the cat toys and hand gel that are simply zip tied to the mesh
