DIY Cat Enclosure!
DIY & Crafts
This is just how I did my cat run. I attached a 6x6 cage made of chain link to the side of my house where my dog door was (I currently do not have a dog). This makes it much easier for my cat to get in and out of her enclosure whenever she pleases.
I acquired all materials for free by recycling things that were left over when my family did some landscaping, unused free scrap from a local landscaping company, and from a wooded area near my home. The large log that is pictured was FREE, just got it from the woods.
The ramp with fake grass on it is merely a long board that I attached scraps of artificial turf to with a staple gun. The turf was FREE after I contacted a local landscaping company asking about their "unusable" leftovers.
I laid the rest of the turf scrap and extra flagstone leftover from landscaping my front yard. In the upper right hand corner, you can see a post (which I got for free from the landscaping company) that I have wrapped in a natural rope. This rope can be found at Ace or Home Depot for about $10.
On top of the post (not pictured) I attached a piece of a cat condo that my cat had broken off. I used screws to secure them together.
PLEASE NOTE that this post is not standing alone, as that would be a safety hazard to my cat. The post is cemented into the ground and the large log (next page)
As seen in the first picture is secured with wire to the fence. Please also note that all materials had NOT been treated with chemicals before being placed inside the enclosure as that could harm the cat.
On the other side of the enclosure, I have the other half of the broken cat condo and a small sand area where my cat can do her business. (This also eliminates the need for a cat box inside the house.)
Being outside has made my cat much happier! If you all have any questions, please feel free to comment!! (And yes, I am aware of how much I look like a crazy cat lady. But I'm proud!) 😻
