We took our time assembling as we are older DIY ers.
We just needed a few more visuals and steps to finalize the structure.
Probably, the crimper learning curve was the biggest challenge with arthritic hands, otherwise, we could see the labor would lead to the desired outcome. The final product meets and exceeds our expectations!
Thanks Jennifer and team; it’s a quality product with top notch assistance in assembly directions.
We installed Phase I of our catio 4 years ago. This year, we finally had a chance to install Phase II. We ordered the pieces in October 2021 and they were delivered in November. It was too cold here to install, so we had to wait until this spring. The quality of the towers and tunnels is excellent. We were impressed by the tools, screws, clips, and extra gates that were included with our order. We definitely needed three people to put together our arrangement as most of it was fairly high up (see photos). The connecting clips are great, but it does take a bit of coordination to get the job done. We are very happy with the end result. The cats (4 of them!) are slowly figuring out just how far they can go in the catio…right from the house and then to the very back of the yard. While we still plan to supervise their morning tour of the yard, the catio will be perfect for the rest of their day.
So I ordered a catio for my kitties hoping that they would like to be outside. Mainly because I have an adoptee who so desperately wanted to be an outside cat. Well he LOVES IT. I have 3 cats 2 who have shown no interest in the catio. Norman who was the main reason for the purchase spends just about every minute he can in it often throwing a fit until it’s opened up in the morning , and trying to stay out all night. It was a great purchase. The sales staff helped me figure out what I really needed and helped me save some money by suggesting a prefab unit the lions den. It was shipped cross country to CA. It was so worth the purchase. Just a note it’s so much easier to set up with 3 people instead of 2 the extra pair of hands made it much easier.
I run an animal shelter in Central Virginia. We wanted an outside area where the cats could enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Being this is a commercial application we wanted something substantial. After a lot of searching we ended up with Habitat Haven. They have been outstanding. We joined forces every step of the way in designing the enclosure to our specific needs and to fit well with the shape of our building. They were a tremendous help to us. Finally we got beautiful drawings to make sure we were on track. The installation was a breeze and the cats absolutely love it! An added bonus is that the staff gets to clean all of the cages while the cats are out enjoying the day. As the cherry on top we had a problem with one of the door hinges well past a year after we installed it and they replaced an entire panel with a compete new door free of charge. I cannot recommend them more highly!
I had wanted a catio for months, but could not find an easy way to go about one. Then I found Habitat Haven's website!! So easy to understand, with so many great catio options! When they did not have a large enough premade kit I emailed them and they responded right away! SUCH NICE people!!!! I got custom designs right away for a large 10 x 9 foot enclosure. After I okayed the designs they custom made my kit SO quickly and it shipped quickly! (there was a carrier/shipper problem with a broken truck, but Habitat Haven kept me informed and I got the kit in about a week, even with a truck delay). Once it arrived it had been packed on a pallet well and everything was labeled. It was SO SO EASY to assemble. I, a 41 year old woman, self assembled it in less than a day! It was just amazing everything got sturdier and sturdier as components were put together! I wish I had known about Habitat Haven sooner. All my cats love it, especially my young kitten who bounces around and climbs the walls. Everything is so well made that the other cats on the shelves don't get bothered, even when is hanging off the walls! Now I am thinking about a "lions den" with a connecting tunnel so the cats can have even more space outside. The cats and I LOVE the space and we spend hours in it each day. I am so thankful to have a safe space for my cats outdoors! A MASSIVE THANK YOU to Habitat Haven!!!!!
