A Life of Riley (the newest member of our Catsafe family)

           

Welcome to Riley, the newest member of our family.

We spotted Riley in an RSPCA adoption centre and thought he could do with a good home.

He’s also a good mate and sparring partner for our two year old ginger and white, Tommy, pictured with him.  Big Tiger also loves a roll around the carpet with him, much to Robyn’s distress as he sheds his lovely long fur coat over the carpets and mats, and she’s forever vacuuming.

But they’re great fun to watch and keep us on the go, especially at feed time!

As you can see, our Catsafe house in Buderim is a cats’  paradise, the cafe curtains keep them warm in winter, and we roll them all up in summer.

Outdoor cat enclosure for two very spoilt cats

All cats love to get outdoors, and with a cat enclosure, you can give them fresh air while keeping both your cats and the local wildlife safe from harm.

An average size cat enclosure is a lot less expensive than a vet bill following a cat fight.

Cat shelves

Cats like nothing better than to sun themselves on a shelf in the back garden, or if the sun’s not shining snooze on you bed.

 

All you need to make a few shelves for your cat/s are a few metal brackets, a strip of exterior plywood and a piece of artificial grass (all from your favourite hardware store).

If you install one of our outdoor cat enclosures, they can sun themselves in happily and you can leave them with complete peace of mind, knowing they are safe.

Mocha’s verandah cat enclosure

      

Mocha’s verandah is now a whole lot more interesting, as he can now use all of it rather than just looking through the window.

“We purchased the cat enclosure for a balcony off the bedroom.

As you can see both my cats use this space a great deal of the time.

One photo shows Mocha trying to bite the enclosure he tries to do this from time to time, no result for him.  The product is secure.

We are 100% happy and so are the cats”.

Timmy, Henry, Rupert & Sebastian’s cat enclosure

claire-cat-enclosureClaire’s Patio Cat Enclosure

Claire’s patio cat enclosure is 6.1 metres long and 2.9 metres high and chose to enclose a triangular corner of her home on the Sunshine Coast with a CatSafe cat enclosure. Claire chose stone beige netting and installed a vertical 2.5 metre entry zip, instead of the usual “J” shaped entry zip.

This is what Claire had to say:

Just a quick note and picture to say we successfully installed the cat enclosure and the boys love it. Timmy (ragdoll), Henry (Burmese) and Rupert (chinchilla) are happy to look at the outside world, Sebastian (domestic med hair) however thinks it is a great climbing apparatus!!

Thanks again we love it and we are very happy with your product and service

Kind regards

Under eaves cat enclosure

We didn’t follow the instructions exactly. My brother is a builder and had his own ideas!! I was a bit nervous, but it turned out well. Our boy is still learning how to use the cat flap but likes going out there.

We usually suggest and supply only tension cords for each external corner, but “the builder” has also incorporated white PVC pipe as you can see (not a bad idea at all). The under eaves cat enclosure are the least expensive of all.

Blackjack’s new cat enclosure

 

Hi Robyn & Ken

We ordered from Catsafe because of the affordability to get a DIY kit. We were a little overwhelmed when everything arrived in kit form, but Ken labels everything so well and provides so much installation help and advice it is impossible to get it wrong! It was a challenge for us to put it all up but one we enjoyed and we saved well over $1,000 doing it ourselves. We are so thrilled with the results as now our cat can come and go as he chooses without feeling like he is in a zoo. An added bonus is that the netting affords very slight shade and rain protection too and it keeps other unwanted wildlife out when we sit out there. We are extremely pleased with the results!

Kind regards

Gillian

Catsafe Cat Enclosure

Harvey’s new cat enclosure

This is a great example of a very inexpensive, side of house, cat run.

It gives Harvey plenty of room to move and gives peace of mind to Harvey’s MUM knowing he is safe.

“We plan to add a couple of shelves high up but he is enjoying the branches .

Thanks again for your help and instructions for installation. Harvey enjoys his time outside”.

Our new cat enclosed deck at Buderim in Queensland

The right hand end of our deck faces east, so the three cats lay here in the morning sun, as it’s a corner block, there are no neighbours this side

We have cafe type clear screens that we put down in winter if it’s cold

Our garden slopes away from the house, so you can see our neighbours red colorbond roof.

The front faces north with a lovely view of the Blackall mountain range.

This is Tom, our youngest, checking out the entry zip.

This is Tiger, our Maine Coon, looking very regal.

Not a bad life for three rescue cats, the deck is 9 metres x 4 metres and the cat enclosure would cost about $700.00.

Side of House cat enclosure

      This is a good example of a modern side of house cat enclosure.

As you can see, this customer preferred to use a hardwood strip against the wall rather than use masonry fixings.

They used the same system on the colorbond fence, which avoided having screws pocking through the neighboures side.

The cat enclosure is almost finished, it just needs the entry zip at this end.
