My PC is already complete and working but i'm looking for some sort case to cover over it while im using it. Mainly because my cat sheds alot and i keep having to blow his fur out of the inside. If nothing like that exist i wouldn't mind building a screen like filter box to put over it.

What is the full spec of your PC? - all components

What is your budget and what country and currency are you shopping in?

Is your PC currently in a case or container of some kind? If so, what?

Are you saying it's already in a case but the cat hair gets in anyway? That probably just means you want to fit some dust filters / get a case with better filters. "covering" the PC while using it, if you mean like with a bag or something, will just suffocate the PC.

I'm willing to go 200 to 300 USD and it only has dust filters in the top and bottom but the front and back fans suck them in i guess? No not with a bag but some sort of box made out of the material of a screen door won't that work to keep the air flowing ? View: https://imgur.com/a/ldj1STD

Is your pc on the floor or is it on a desk? If floor, move it up, and if its on a desk, keep your cat off of it lol.
Okay you're not wrong lol it will probably help with less fur going in but his hair still flows through the air i want it so that none of it can get sucked in at all

The back fan won't suck them in as it's an exhaust (rear fans are normally exhausts and looking at yours it seems to be set up that way.

What is the model of the case exactly?

If it's got no frost dust filter then you can get ones that are either screwed in place with the case fans, or clip on magnetically (magnets in the corners stick to the screws mounting the fans). They're a few quid on ebay and Amazon and other stores. You'll want one on each front intake.

There are branded ones by people like Silverstone
Or cheaper non-branded ones.

I can't tell for sure, but it looks like that case front panel has the front panel with the vertical dashes cut into it, and then something else - some kind of grille or mesh behind it?

If so, and if it's easily removable, you may want to take it out as a) it's not doing much good anyway, b) it will be superseded by the fine mesh filters, and c) it's one less thing for the fans to have to suck air through. If the fans have to suck air through the front panel, then through that grille, and then through actual dust filters, it's going to reduce airflow even more.

Not a criticism, just an observation aimed more at anyone else who might read the topic - if you buy a cheap case and then spend extra to get things like more fans, or dust filters, or whatever, it's often better to just get a more expensive case that has all of these built in plus other features. Can even work out cheaper. :)
