Default Cat Enclosure

Hi Catlovers,

i'm planning to build a cat enclosure for my kids but still haven't had ideas on how the design would be. Been googling around but mostly houses in abroad which is not really suitable with the current house i'm living in. Could you guys suggest any websites yang ada bab design enclosure ni or probably person that i could contact to?

nak build lepas raya ni cause my kids dah restless dok dalam cage jer. once dapat lepas keluar, habis pulak my furniture they scratched. now, i had to keep them in my wet kitchen which they have "destroyed" successfully. especially when it comes to penyapu lidi and dustbin.

help!

hi sarah

gosh, you sound as if you have many cats. hmm, let me guess? 8 furkids? :-P

wow, lucky you, you have resources, i.e. space, land, to build enclosure.

that's a good idea. i'm sure there are forumers here who can share their ideas with you. in the meantime, perhaps you may want to provide alternatives for them to scratch, after scratching is natural to them - to sharpen their nails, to leave a "calling card", to remove dead nails, etc.

any sturdy piece of wood, whether positioned horizontally or vertically will do but if placed vertically maybe kena make sure it is stable also.

i know what you mean, i myself have googled the same topic from time to time, drooled over the picture but realised that their climate and their house-designs and land space is different from what we have here.

do keep us updated in you find a good design. also you may want to check in the DIY thread section - maybe someone has suggested ideas kat situ

good luck

i only have 5 cats lar me so embarrased already when u mentioned that hahahahaha..only 5 cats but hopefully i could adopt more ..and the space is not that big but good enough for them to run around outdoor instead of inside my kitchen. yeah, i do find one which attracted me the most.

one of the best site to drool is this

http://www.catsofaustralia.com/cat-enclosures.htm

but like i said..to

i kinda like this one..but with roof..not as big as this..probably half of the size.

http://www.xmission.com/~emailbox/catrun.htm

i'll update more site for everyone to drool and to have ideas if one's want to built one.

Cheers!

Hi

wow, then you're better than me. i will stop at 4. that's the magic number. not sure i can deal fairly with more than 4 :-)

i visited the links you enclosed and you're right : can only

*sigh*. the weather over there is agreeable with such run - dry and not humid plus cool

if here, gotta have lots of shades - but difficult to find ample land space.

i once had an ambition to build a sort of enclosed cat run attached to my backyard but it was shot down as not practical as this will mean the security alarm to our house will be compromised. since i have not come up with an alternative idea to the alarm system, i let the matter stay on the back-burner

i totally agree with you.

as for me, i got to be extra alert in building up the enclosure since my house is near to the bushes and river, so it's prone to snakes and other reptiles. worse comes to worse, i might have to build a full-wooden shelter instead of just fencing.

about the websites, check out the cat-tunnel..very very

hahahaha..and this is only the owner talking,belum lagi the cat itself

at last, i managed to build up a mini enclosure for them. The stooges loved it, i assumed since they couldn't stop running around the new area. definitely bigger and cleaner compare to their previous place which was my wet kitchen area.

not so lar filin..macam beli 2 units of 3-tier cages..i spent about 600 for materials and labor cost.mintak tolong my cleaner's husband tolong buatkan..tapi the surface area quite rough cause plywood tu tak di-smoothkan with sandpaper..thinking of cover it with a transparent plastic esp area yg a bit tajam tuh..

thank you ya..lama jugak looking for someone who could do it with an affordable cost.
