Why have a cat enclosure for your little friend?

Cat in cat enclosure

 A cat enclosure is a great way to keep your little friend safe from: 

  • people 
  • poisons
  • other cats 
  • councils 
  • ticks
  • dogs 
  • wildlife

It will give them their own space and is a great way to get them out of the house in the fresh air and sun (you can also put a cover on for shade as well) while knowing that they will be ok. In Australia we have beautiful weather that we enjoy so why not let your best friend enjoy it too.  Add some water, their favourite blanket and toys so they feel at home. Cats will benefit from being outside with their toys simulating them mentally and keeping down their anxiety.

You may have some questions like:

  • Is it mean to put your friend in an enclosure?
  • How many cats can go in an enclosure?
  • How big should an enclosure be? 

It is not mean at all it is giving them what they need in a controlled environment where they are stimulated and safe.

To get started all you need is a frame and netting. From there you will want a door for access and somewhere comfortable for them to sleep - you know best what your little friend likes.


For a basic enclosure something 2 metres long, 1 metre wide and a metre tall will suit one or two cats and a few more cats or kittens.

Have a look at our customer pics of cat enclosures made from kits or made from scratch.  Also browse our PVC plans page for free plans for the cat enclosure to see what is in the kit or use them for inspiration to design your own. You are able to buy the cat enclosure without netting and add animal mesh or stainless steel netting as a different option to the heavy duty netting we use in the cat enclosure kit.  

Read our blog "Free cat enclosure plan" to also see the free plan that is included in the cat enclosure kit.
