New Cat Enclosure

A few weeks ago I purchased cat netting and a zip kit from here (with quick delivery and great price) and installed in the little area outside my bathroom and toilet window using just cable ties and a staple gun.

It was remarkably easy to install, the hardest part was sewing the zip into the netting, trying to push the thick needle through the zipper material and then looping through the netting, but once I got the hang of it I was fine.

My fabulous brother created this entry/exit point for the cats using the existing toilet window screen, which I picked up today and it looks fantastic. The cats now need to learn how to use the door. They are very unsure, but it won't be long and they will be racing in and out.

The purpose of creating this cat enclosure was to be able to keep the litter trays and all the associated smells outside, but the bonus is that the cats love being outside in the fresh air watching the birds fly by.

  1. This is awesome Kristy! My indoor cat loves getting outside in his area too, but my husband had to knock a hole through the brick wall to give him a door and a tunnel to crawl through! The things we do for our pets!

    Hopefully your cats have got the hang of the cat flap now, and are enjoying watching the birds and soaking up the sun.
