Great outdoor space for my boy Jax!

My boy loves to spend time outdoors in his new outdoor space!
Assembly was easy and self explanatory!
I feel happy knowing my boy can enjoy the outdoors with the family in the backyard in a safe environment!

My cats love it too!

Our four cats love their new semi outdoor space. They spend lots of time keeping track of the squirrels, chipmunks, baby rabbits, and birds.

Great catio. Installed in 2016 and has held up great!

Cats enjoy it, especially at night to check out all the visiting critters.

Cats are thrilled.

My two Boys are indoor cats, and now they have been enjoying their time outside in the sun for almost three months now. They really love it. I'm never sure which shelf I will find was their choice for the nap each day. They are protected and safe and very happy, and Mom does not worry about wildlife pestering them when we are not home. Habitat Haven and Matt made the process to design the tunnel and get the measurements super easy. The catio arrived early, and the local installer, Robby, did a great job getting it in within a few hours. I did place a few cactus plants in front of it - just to make Mom feel better so they are not so easily visible. I live in the suburbs. My patio is pretty small, and the catio is a perfect size, and the Boys love it. Mater will stand by the little door to it in the morning waiting for me to open the door some days. I cannot recommend Habitat Haven enough. Thank you!

Excellent support

Our outdoor cat habitat was done in two phases about a year apart. The first was a "tower" that attached to an exterior stucco wall and slid up next to a side opening in our garden window. We weren't sure about the attachment method, meshing with the existing window, spacing of shelves, exterior access, and accommodation for expansion (that is, if our picky cats actually liked it). After numerous emails (and a couple of phone calls) designing and re-designing the structure we clicked the purchase button. Within a couple of weeks a large box arrived and few hours later our careful measurements and discussions clearly paid off. The structure fit perfectly and our cats immediately explored the new space. The second phase was initiated about a year later. Again, after several emails the design of the extending "tunnel" was refined, and we finalized our purchase. Less than a week later it arrived in two boxes, which we were able to install in a few hours. The cats (Rosie and Chico) moved in right away. As before, the effort spent in measuring and planning paid off. In both phases our original designs were analyzed and simplified by Matt Hough the Habitat Haven "Customer Experience Guru." His help was invaluable and matched only by the quality of construction. It was expensive (particularly shipping) but well-worth it.

Zero complaints!

It's been a year and a pretty big project. We custom ordered our catio to fit in-line with our deck & shed and house. I wanted plenty of room for our 4 cats to explore, play or nap.
We only had the window unit installed when the first kitty found the cat door and learned about the catio. She was amazed. The others soon followed her out. Their favorite place is the tunnel bridge. (We may need to install a bypass, as they LOVE to block each other from going through 🤣)
Assembly and installation isn't 'hard', but a 2nd set of hands is helpful. I also recommend building a platform for the enclosures to rest on if your ground is not level.
Great product! Great customer service! Thanks, HH!

Corner Hammocks

I Bought 2 corner Hammocks for the Catio. The Smaller cat loves them, my bigger cat is 20 LBS, he doesn't seem to like them. The Hammocks are very well made out of a type of canvas material.

Safe and fun outdoor space

We (2 humans & 3 cats) downsized to 240 square feet, plus lofts and cat walks, so attaching an additional 46 square feet of outside space was really great for the cats. They love watching birds and bugs and I love how sturdy and safe Habitat Haven’s Lion’s Den is. Thank you!

Upscale kitten coop

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.

Catio Phase II

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.

Norman King of the Catio

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.

100% satisfied

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!

Best Purchase I have ever made!!!!

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!!!!!

Fantastic Outdoor Kitty Safety..NO more worries

The mountain lions and coyotes have decimated the raccoon and outside cat population in our area. It has been much worse the last 3 years. I started building our Habitat Haven catio in 2017 and have been adding on to it for 5 years. I recently acquired powder coated sheets from Habitat to wrap around a pergola that we can sit in with our 3 cats. Tunnels connect to the pergola and 4 windows as well as other Habitat enclosures. Every day we read in our neighborhood blog about missing kitties. This is the perfect long term customizable solution.

Off the scale happy cats!

We completed installation of our enclosures yesterday - a window box connected to a lions den. Oh, my goodness! The reaction from our cats was off the scale! They went in and out about 35 times, carefully exploring every inch of the new territory. They encountered a bunny, birds and bugs! We plan to decorate with cat-friendly plants and a tree stump. However, they’re thrilled just with planks.

Sadie’s catio

Sadie loves her time out in the catio. She runs downstairs every morning and checks if her catio door is open. She plays in it, feels safe and secure. Having the addition, is exactly what she needed. Lots of space and area to run around.

Liz's kitty and bird watching area

My cats love their area! They go out regardless of the weather but do prefer sunny days. I put a tarp over the tunnel so they can camp out under it and stay dry. They love to travel down the perches to get to the side that's closer to the bird feeders. Actually, the birds like to perch on the planks. I hope they are careful. Lol

My kitties love their new outdoor enclosure!

We absolutely love the new catio! It took my husband and step son a whole day to put together but they took their time to make sure it was done correctly. The materials are all high quality. The cats are really enjoying spending lots of time in it and our most active kitty even seems a little more relaxed! :)

When we opened the tower packaging we noticed the top of the tower had been damaged in transit. So I called Habitat Haven and spoke with Matt, who was very helpful and said they would send a new top to replace the damaged part. We received the part a few days later. This company’s customer service is outstanding!

Cats love it. People marvel.

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.

Boys think I am the best Mom

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.

The best thing for my cats.

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.

Happy Cats!

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.

My 🐈‍⬛s love the catios

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.

Perfect Catio

I highly recommend Habitat Haven catios. They are a great company to work with from start to finish. I emailed with questions and they were promptly answered. After giving them the dimensions and sending a photo, they gave me ideas and made some custom adjustments to the catio plans. It arrived with everything I needed, good instructions and was easy to assemble. A quality product. Thank you for giving my kitty, Lady Grey, a comfortable space to get outside and watch the world.
