Did you know? Indoor cats live up to 5 times longer than their outdoor counterparts. That's because they're safe from fights, flight, falls, predators, traffic or trespassing. More Features...
Our cat enclosures are sturdy, escape-proof & maintenance free. These are not cat cages, pens or cat runs, but cat enclosure systems that enhance your cat's life.
All units are:
- Made of powder-coated galvanized steel suited to all climates, from salt air to high sierra.
- Closed on all sides, top and bottom, so your cat can't get out and predators can't get in. They let your cat enjoy the outdoors in a safe, controlled environment, free from falls, predators and traffic.
- Fitted with escape-proof door latches that have no spring mechanism so they will not pinch your cat's paws, and they can be padlocked on the outside for added security.
We offer an array of kitty comforts and deluxe accessories including cedar or plastic wood perches and floor liners, pet doors, awnings and hammocks in bright, fade resistant fabrics.
How to Build Your Enclosure
If you are unable to find what you would like with our predesigned kits you can create your own Home of Habitat Haven outdoor pet enclosure by choosing the pieces that would suit your area the best way. All pieces connect to each other with ease. Before connecting the tunnels, stairs, towers or bridges to the enclosures, you will need to cut out an access hole so that they can be attached. The only tools that are required are a hack saw and file. You can also use bolt cutters if you have them handy. Follow the template that is provided so that you have the correct sized hole.
We have designed the human size doors with the sly cat in mind. The regular doors are 24”Wx 60” H. They are 4” from the bottom of the door panel. The reason for the small size of the doors is so that when you are entering the enclosures you are aware of your surroundings and will be aware if a cat tries to run out. Also available are non-trip doors which are used when the door is put in front of downward stairs or for people that have difficulty lifting their feet. For people that want to be able to cut the grass in their enclosures, we have made the non-trip 32”W door. For enclosures that are under 60” tall we have a small human size door with the dimensions of 24”Wx 36”H that is 4” from the bottom. Standard doors open Left to Right, but if you require a Right to Left door please specify, plus all doors come with a turn latch, padlock ability, on one side of the door. If you will need to lock the door from the inside of the enclosure please let us know and another latch can be installed on the inside of the door.
The wood that is used in the enclosures are cedar planks. The standard size is a milled 1” thick x 8” wide. Milled wood is slightly smaller than the measurements given. For example 8” wide will actually be 7 ¼ wide. When choosing wood for the floor it is always good to have a space between the wood for water drainage and for the wood to expand and contract.
All custom outdoor cat enclosure kits will come with the appropriate hardware, instructions and pliers. Just choose the number of pieces that you will need to build your personal Home of Habitat Haven play pen.
Custom orders are the best way to achieve the outdoor cat enclosure that will blend in with your outside surroundings and give your cat’s the most room to play. If trying to figure out what you will need is a bit too overwhelming, just send us an e-mail with a photo of where you would like the enclosure to go and we would be more than happy to give some suggestions. If you would prefer to have someone come by and give you a free estimate, take a look at our website for an installer in your area. If you live in the Southern Ontario area, please contact us directly and one of our professional installers would be happy to come out and discuss you and your cat’s requirements and budget for an outdoor cat enclosure.
Custom Order Quotes
For your convenience you can place a request for a quote by submitting your enclosure requirements and a picture of the designated area, either by email, fax or regular mail. Please include measurements of the area and a brief description of the enclosure that you would like. If you would like the enclosure to match the color of your house, you will have to mail us a paint chip so that we can make sure it matches. Once we have received your information, you will be contacted by phone to discuss the enclosure. We will email your quote to you.

Cats get cabin fever, too
