The Courtyard is our most spacious and interesting pre-configured catio design. It was created to maximize the vantage points, activities, and space for your cat(s) to explore. The center even features a courtyard area for this cat castle where you might plant a garden or set up a table and chairs to watch your cat(s) explore and play! There is something for every cat in the Courtyard. With multiple enclosure areas connected by tunnels and stairs, both high and low, there is room for many cats in the Courtyard!
Keep in mind the tunnels, stairs, and enclosures can be repositioned as you see fit during assembly so that you can arrange them in a way that works best for your site.
Please note that additional accessories such as awnings, hammocks, ramps, and scratching posts are not included with the catio kit but can certainly be purchased separately!
Please review the important information below about this item.
Our enclosures are made from durable galvanized steel mesh panels that are then powder coated black to ensure a long-lasting weatherproof finish.
Floor and Shelves
Our shelves and floor are cut to size and made from cedar which is naturally resistant to water, bugs, rot, and mold. It the ideal material choice for outdoor catio shelving and flooring.
Human Entry Doors
The access doors are 2 feet wide and 5 feet tall. This purposely small door is designed small for a reason. It is installed 4 inches off the ground as well. The door has been tested since 2003 as the most effective way to force the person entering to be mindful of their surroundings. When you enter a door like this, you will naturally be careful of where you step, what is above you and to the side. All of this awareness has proven time and time again to minimize any would-be kitty escapes during entry. The swing of the door (left or right hand swing) is adjustable and can be set to either option during assembly.
Holes for Tunnels, Towers, Stairs, etc.
Component holes are not cut where the tunnels, bridges, stairs, and other components meet the enclosures. Since the mesh is relatively easy to cut on-site during assembly, we leave the choice on where these holes are located up to you so you can position them as you see fit. This also avoids costly mistakes being made and/or accommodates site issues discovered during assembly
Enclosures will arrive partially assembled and flat packed on a pallet. Assembly is straightforward for anyone who would consider themselves "handy." Paper instructions will be provided. It is recommended that at least two reasonably healthy people are present to install the enclosures. Knowledge of basic carpentry and assembly is helpful.
Clips will be provided that secure the enclosure together. In addition, a special tool for snugly fitting/closing the clips is also provided with each enclosure order.
Once unpacked, you will arrange your enclosure near or on the assembly site. Using provided 3 prong clips and specialty pliers, you will connect the edges of your enclosure by setting the edges until you have a fully enclosed and free-standing enclosure.
At that point, you can then attached to structure/buildings as necessary. Then you can create any needed holes in the enclosure to accept tunnels, stairs, or other accessory components as needed (holes are not made by Habitat Haven - they are made during assembly installation to offer maximum flexibility and minimize the chance for errors.)
My cats took to it very quickly. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be using them again.
We couldn’t be more pleased with both the catio and support provided by your staff. We have such peace of mind knowing the cats can enjoy the out of doors safely!
My kitty loves this, I love this and it looks great!👍
Love this well made kitty tower- our cats don’t feel the same about it though… not certain why? It is soft, sturdy and beautiful!.
We are not at all handy, but my husband and I successfully put together a My Own Den Petit this weekend. We received it late 2023 but had to wait a few weeks for the snow and ice to melt in our back garden. It really wasn’t too hard, and we know our cats are gonna love it.
Good value, good price
My cats really love this cat tree! It looks great inside of my home and is very overbuilt / heavy duty. This product feels like it is going to hold up for a long time. It took me and my wife about 30 minutes to put it together and instructions were relatively easy to follow.
Our cat, Duke, LOVES his cat tree. Very well made and very easy to do business with Habitat. Customer service A+. Will use them again in the future.
We are very happy with this purchase. It looks nicer than we imagined. What is really important is that our cat just loves being in it and playing on it. He plays or sleeps in his Bungalow so much! I really found this product easy to order, assemble, and it was delivered as promised. I strongly recommend for indoor cats!
My cats are so happy with their new hang out spot! Looks even better than the pictures!!
Ever since I got my cat 4 years ago, I’ve been searching for a modern looking cat tree that was affordable but didn’t look cheap — look no further, this is it!!!
Not only does my cat love it, but I do too!! I’m thrilled that I didn’t have to compromise the modern look in my house.
worked great connecting catio to new Purrfect Fence enclosure in back yard. Well made , easy to connect, and like opening and one door, and wood flooring
Love our Habitat Haven enclosure and tunnels! So far they have provided 10+ years of hard service in the heat and humidity. We recently replaced the cedar decks in the set up, but the original boards could have easily lasted several years longer.
Our cats were super upset while they waited for access again!
I read comments online that people could make they same enclosure cheaper, or buy a similar product for cheaper. All you end up with then is a cheap product that won't perform as well, last as long, or offer the level of protection that Habitat products offer.
If you can make the investment in Habitat products, do. Your pets are worth it.
I purchased a 4x4 catio with the intent of adding on to it little by little. My grown daughter helped me get it up. It was fun and I enjoyed doing it. I’m about ready to measure for the tunnels that will attach to it. The products are very well made and sturdy. I am a 66 year old grandmother with 4 kitties and needed some help with the instructions. The employee I spoke to was extremely helpful and understanding. She explained everything to me and was very pleasant. I will be placing my next order very soon.
The team at Habitat Haven was great to work with and very responsive. It took a few weeks to figure out what we wanted and how it would be configured, then waited a reasonable 4- 5 weeks and our modules shipped! When the pallet arrived, we could easily put together the various stairways and tunnels. The instructions were a little generic and some of the modules weren't quite readily aligned, but these issues were easy to overcome. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again from these folks (we already have the Purrfect Cat Fence). And the proof of success was when we let our two little boys out and they raced back and forth and love it! See the pictures.
