The photo used for Caturday Art was taken when the famous "Purrizen Fence" was being built.
Eric and Flynn used to have free run of the outdoors and would go off into the fields on their own and be back within a couple of hours.
In time, Eric started to go further and we would have to go looking for him. He would cross several fields towards one of the neighbouring farms. We started to worry for his safety, so both boys got grounded.
That meant that they could only go outdoors if I was with them. It upset them after having freedom to roam, and it upset us to see them fretting about it.
The solution was the purrizen fence. It was 8 feet high and the horizontal boards were on the outside so as not to make it to easy for them to escape over it.
As you can see, they wanted it done as soon as possible and helped out with it.
The fence meant the garden was completely enclosed so they were able to use their cat flap and go outdoors whenever they wanted to.
I am sure they could have got over the fence if they really wanted too, but they seemed more than happy with unlimited access to the garden. Of course I also took them for walks around the fields so they could continue their perimeter patrol and mouse hunting.
