Who can help with a cat playground?

By candelabra 15 August 2010 22

Hello everyone,

I would like to know if there is anyone in Canberra who can assist me in designing and building a backyard cat enclosure encompassing most of the backyard (not along the lines of the modular units).

I am hoping for something that isn’t an eyesore and gives my cat ample room to climb/run/jump/play inside it (ideally it would involve landscaping too because the backyard needs it!) while she is safely contained during the day and night and not eating the wildlife etc.

Desirable features:

  • Lots of light and some shade
  • Protection from the elements
  • Cat safe plants
  • Fountain, pond
  • Platforms for sleeping and climbing on
  • Convenient gates for people to enter and exit
  • Cat hammock
  • Provision for digging and doing poop etc outside (would like to avoid litter trays)
  • A cat door entrance and tunnel leading to the area

To give an idea of what would be ideal here are some pictures I’ve found on the net in my search for ideas:

Thank you for your suggestions 🙂

What’s Your opinion?

I can help. But first I must ask what your feelings are towards pit traps, catapults (tehehehe, get it), Guillotines, clothes pegs on tails, sticky tape on feet etc. Once I have this info, I will design you a cat playground that will be hours of fun for anyone watching!

Captain, my Captain. I love cats, but I think I love you more !

Hi all,

I run a Canberra business called Custom Cat Enclosures.
for the past year or so I have been designing and installing some of the more complicated designer solutions around town for some very lucky cats.

I am happy to throw may hat in the ring to assist you with your required space.

Feel free to check out my little website to see what we are about and give me a call if you would like to organise a consultation.

Best Regards
