Window Catio Enclosure

SKU: SKU:


Habitat Haven window catio enclosures are cages that can be attached to the outside of your window. Your cats can climb through an indoor access hatch onto a nice stable platform just outside the home, where they can safely take in the sights, smells, fresh air, and sunshine of the outdoors.

These window catios are a safe way to give your cat outdoor access any time they want. Veterinary experts agree that they’re one of the most effective ways to reduce stress, address behavioral issues, and keep cats entertained.

Your cat’s enclosure can be more than a window cage as it can be installed along any flat surface. Use them for windows, walls, fences, and more! They’re great starter components for larger catio systems. When you are ready to expand, it’s affordable and easy to add to Habitat Haven components. You can include tunnels, stairs, bridges, hammocks, awnings, and more to accessorize your cat’s window enclosure.

Your window catio can be installed fairly easily by the average handy person using common tools. But if you would like help in picking it out or installing it, start with a call to our catio experts. Contact us online or give us a call at 1 866-484-0644.

Make sure when ordering the window catio enclosures that it clears your window frame by 6" (inches) all around. Allow the 6" lip to properly fit around the surrounding surface so that it is secured. All window enclosures come with a cedar floor included. Additional doors, shelving, and colorful canvas awnings are not included but are available for purchase separately.

Your cat’s window enclosure will arrive partially assembled to ensure safe and secure shipping. Instructions will be provided for easy assembly from there.

To ensure maximum flexibility during installation, Build Your Own Kit enclosures do not come with ready-made entry point holes for connection with other components. Entry points can be created on-site during the installation. This allows easy connection with tunnels, towers, bridges, stairs, and other components. These systems are designed for maximum flexibility during setup.

Please note that for Build Your Own Window Enclosure orders, wooden shelves and canvas awnings are sold separately.

To keep our catio components at a low cost, every part of the fabrication process has been streamlined. Any customizations you would like to make may take manual review, planning, and fabrication. We’re happy to do it, but it may affect the overall cost. Please contact us for details if you require customizations.

Your window catio enclosures will arrive partially assembled and flat packed on a pallet. The assembly instructions provided are straightforward. They are designed to be easy to follow for anyone who would consider themselves "handy”. We recommend at least two able-bodied people be present for the installation. Basic carpentry knowledge and assembly experience are also helpful.

Clips meant to secure the cage of the window enclosure together will be provided. A special plier tool for closing the clips is provided with each enclosure order.

Once unpacked, arrange your cat’s window enclosure at or near the assembly site. Using the provided 3-prong clips and specialty pliers, set the edges of your enclosure in order to connect them. Continue this step until you have a fully-enclosed and free-standing enclosure.

At this point, the enclosure can be attached to the desired structure or building as necessary. After you securely attach the enclosure to the structure/building, you can create openings in the enclosure. These openings connect to tunnels, stairs, or other accessory components as needed. Please note that window catio enclosures do not come with ready-made holes. They are meant to be created during assembly installation. This allows for the greatest flexibility and smallest chance of errors.

Your cat’s window enclosure is made to order, meaning that it’s constructed by hand just for your cat. It goes through a series of steps before it is ready for shipping. The estimated delivery date stated on this page is an estimate for the total construction time involved. In some cases, the item may be ready sooner, and on rare occasions, it may take more time. We will do our best to get the item delivered to you as fast as possible without delays. You will be notified via email when your order is ready to ship.

My indoor kitty LOVES his outside space. It's safe and sturdy, so I'm comfortable with him out in it too. The whole neighborhood is enamored by the spoiled brat in his catio.
