WE BUILT A CAT RUN — 6 Comments

  1. I love what you did! I rescued 11 kittens whose mothers were trapped by a neighbor and dropped off somewhere far away in the woods. It’s a felony here in the US, but you have to prove it. I’m trying to build the same type enclosure here. Ya’ll are an inspiration to all who save animals. Love to you all.

  2. Think you girls have done great, I’m desperate to have one of these. I have 6 cats 5 of them go outside, and one of my neighbours have threatened to kill them, as they keep going in there garden it’s so heartbreaking because I now have to keep them in till I can afford to build one myself, there really not happy about it, so any tips will be greatly welcomed 😉

    • They are basically a frame made of wood (pretreated 4×2 wood (max)) with chicken wire or fencing wire strung between. That would be effective but wouldn’t look that good. It doesn’t have to be that large, say about 10 feet square or something like that (in my opinion). You might be able to find a local handyman who’ll do it cheaply. It could even rest on the ground rather then be embedded in the ground. Ideally there would be a fencing wire roof as well to prevent cats climbing out. There should be a tunnel of some sort leading from a cat flap to the enclosure. Some climbing structures inside the enclosure are essential as cats like vertical spaces. Hope this helps a little bit.
