I purchased the cat tunnel to connect the main house to the cabana. The cat love it. Everyone who comes over comments and just marvles about how cool it is.
I purchased this unit second hand off craigslist for the steal of the century. The original owners had it for over 8 years outside and unprotected in all weather here in the mid-atlantic. I came along and disassembled and reassembled in my carport. The cats love it and am now starting cat-door training. We even have a few neighbor cats come to check it out and scratch their heads over it. I needed some additional parts for the shelving and the customer service and shipping was excellent. I highly recommend this company for both lasting product and continuing service.
My F1 Savannah cat used to run away when we were opening the door. We lost him for a several days a couple of times. Now both of my cats can enjoy their outdoor space whenever they want. I had great cooperation from the guru at Habitat Haven to help me design a solution that would be cost effective for me. The material is good quality and everything came up precut with a set of tools to facilitate the installation.
My two cats just love their outdoor enclosure. They wait by the window until it is opened each day, and they are in and out all day long, basking in the sun, watching the bugs and birds, exploring plants, and having a blast. I have added scratching posts, hammocks, hanging toys and stairs, which they all love. But mostly they love the tunnels. I don't know what it is about the tunnels, but make sure you get at least 2!! So happy with this purchase! It is a well made product. You need at least 2 people to build it, 4 is even better. Ours was a tight fit between house and wall, which made it tricky, but very sturdy when finished.
I have 6 cats and 3 catios. All of the cats spend many hours a day in them. The cats had all been abandoned and lived outside on their own for several years. When I gave them a home they were very happy and didn’t want to go back outside.
But when I bought the catios and attached them my house and 2 other buildings on my property, the cats were thrilled to be able to go safely outside and come back in whenever they wanted. People who walk by my house will often wave at the cats and come over to talk to them. Some bring their dogs over to have a chat with the cats. The cats feel very safe inside the catios and like to have people and dogs stop by to see them.
The cations have really improved their quality of life.
