In March I was contacted by Star. Star eventually built a catio (weird weather holdups) but was already ahead of the game with the funhouse built for the cats! You can check that out here: http://www.starartproductions.com/cat-fun.html
Now, check out this catio story! Current pricing included, thank you Star for such comprehensive information!
Hope all is well with you…
The one with the crazy cat walks throughout my house?
I contacted you early in March and I had just received the materials to get started on our Catio.
I started as soon as I could over here in NY, however the weather took quite a turn with some unusual Noreasters adding snow here in March and April to prolong the mission.
However I am happy to report that we have finally completed a wonderful space for our dear Choco-Lettes.
I also decided on making a 12 panel access door next to the fence so that I can get in easier to bring them additional goodies.
Installed in this luxurious Catio is a tree trunk (covered in sisal for better grip), some driftwood for climbing and lounging, some grass for nibbling some flowers and other greenery.
A custom Catio Sign which the artist in me just had to add.
When the weather is nice I put their nest (basket), a little cat cave and some towels for lounging in as well.
In the future we’re also thinking of putting some clear corrugated plastic panels on top, so they can enjoy it all in the rain.
I have to admit that I started this project with absolutely no specific plans and pretty much winged it from beginning to end.
You’re site was a wonderful place to go to when I needed direction and inspiration.
Yesterday and today were the first 70 plus degree weather days here and the cats have gone to heaven.
They are now practically living outside.
Looking forward to enjoying this Catio for years to come.
Some various info:
So that was a total of $117.00 for 3 sets.
7 Solar Lights from the dollar store $7.00 total
Cable Ties (from Home Depot) for a huge bag of which I have lots left over despite some of my errors at times… Approx $25.00
Tree Trunk and Driftwood (free)
I used Corrugated plastic boards (the kind used for outdoor signs)which I had left over from other projects, and some Plastic Placemats for the platforms.
Catio Sign – Leftover paint and wood….
Everything else you see were things from our yard or what I had at home. Grass, flowers and Plantings transplanted from our yard.
Eventually I will be posting this on my website which right now only has the interior cat playground as I had initially shared with you
