Kitty Fence

On our last trip, our cat wanted to go outside really bad. We would not let her go cause she would get into trouble, critters etc.
What do you cat folks use for a kitty fence? I looked online but I really didn't see anything that I liked. Like most things for rving, it need to be able to collapse and not take up to much space.
Thanks for your input, and Bella thanks you also. Meow.

We had a collar on our cat and would tie her up like a dog. When she wanted to hide she would climb on top off gas tank.

Indeed- both my cats have a harness and a 25’ leash.
I tie them off away from traffic and let them explore!!

My first thought would be how are you gonna find a fence that a cat can't climb?

Here's what we used to have made and ship all over the US. Unfortunately the company that made them was sold, they doubled the cost and wanted to sell us a minimum of 50 units.
I also have one (of my six) trained to walk on a leash.

In order to put a harness on this cat, you'd have to tranquilize her. She ain't going for it at all.
And, yes, what ever we use fence wise would need a roof.
Mr D. What you have looks like the way we may have to go.
Still looking. I will figure something out.
Thanks folks, your " The Best "

It's about the size and thickness of a large pizza when collapsed. There are several companies that sell these in a variety of sizes.

For some reason the photo below didn't make it. I also have a couple fabric play cages I can put out, one I got from Camping World and another from a vendor at a cat show.

We have a couple , one is a collapsible dog kennel/crate. It is around 3x4 ft.
The other is a fabric one, the dog kennel one would keep both cats safe if a big dog came around.

Stick the cats in, start recording and scare the crap out of them. Of course you will want to tie a rope to it so you have some hope of getting your cats back anytime soon.

We tried a screen fabric tent for the cats and they were scared to death in it. We think they felt that they could not get away from any dogs that came after them. They went ballistic when we tried harnesses on them.
While they go outside at home, they really do not try to leave the RV and are quite content to sit on the back of the sofa or on top of the table and look out the windows. After the last camping trip, we left the doors open while we unpacked in our driveway. They stayed in the RV for nearly an hour before we finally carried them out.

Our cat begs to go outside so she accepted a leash on her collar or harness and we tie her to the steps. The cat door allows her get back inside when she wants.
