    :O mikek, where has THAT been all my life! My Mum got me a folding screen door but it wouldn't fit due to how my door is laid out, but THIS should be perfect How does it fix, velcro?

    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    i bought some from Wilko. 7 i think, for 10metres. i think it's 2m wide, so there's quite a lot of it!

    it's too big for my g/h though & i didn't want to cut it so for the g/h i have some door fly screen from Home Bargins. it's more like house windows nets but black. 2.99 each (it's 2 lengths approx 2m x 0.6m). i think this would be better for the buns.





    They look great

    I love the bunny under the parasol!

    I used to have one of those magnetic door screens..... until one of my dogs ripped it down and tore it to shreds. It just attaches with Velcro but our doorframe was out of square so it took a bit of faffing to line it all up so it would snap shut after we'd gone through it.

    I'll have a look in Wilko (thanks Mike!) as that sounds like an even cheaper option than eBay. I'm hoping, if we drape it outside, the cat won't pull it through the mesh while he's inside. We might need to roll it up out of the way when he's got the free run of the garden though in case he tries to climb it.

    the size i stated for the item from Wilko was wrong! I got confused with fleece.
    anyways, this is it i think. comes with a few plastic fittings to fit to greenhouse:

    How cute is that!

    Thanks for the Wilko link Mike, it's been a real help. I think that should be just about the right size for what I need

    oops, sorry kk, mised your post.
    it come supplied with self-adhesive velcro strips & drawing pins for fixing, but it is like a net curtain as it has a bit at the top you can feed wire thru or you could you a net curtain stretchy wire i suppose - i only just thought of that *facepalm smilie*

    i have
    one in the house that i use on the patio doors in the summer,
    one on bunny shed doors all year round (to stop flies getting in & for shading & draught-proofing) as the door is open all day for them to go in & out as they please,
    and 2 in the greenhouse for shading.
