my porch in an apt..
Jeannie WrightAugust 12, 2013
My cats love to sit on the porch with me but they can jump to the ground from the porch. Is there a temporary screen that I could put up to keep them in the porch? Maybe a mosquito netting but how could I temporarily attach? My apt manager won't let me screen it in.

I used black trellis netting. I got it at Home Depot but it is readily available. I got a high tensile length of wire from Home Depot, strung it on the wire then attached tightening fasteners (Home Depot - I think they are fasteners you would use to hang a clothes line so you keep it taut) at each end and screwed them into the end walls of the balcony. The Home Depot guy knew exactly what I wanted once I described what I was doing and was very helpful getting all the parts. You didn't say if your porch was wood, so don't know if this would work for you. I hung it high enough that the cats couldn't get over and held it in place on the floor with bricks and flower pots. It is very easy to look through for humans and is barely visible from as close as 10 feet. Hope this helps or gives you ideas to work on.
