On one website, I saw an advertisement for a "modular cat enclosure" for over $200 which appears to be constructed out of those wire storage cubes you can get at Target or WalMart. You know, the kind that snap together with plastic gadgets at the corners. I have some of these same cubes in my closet and they look IDENTICAL to the cat enclosure in the picture. So I was wondering if anyone has tried to build their own cat enclosure from wire storage cubes. I wonder how sturdy they are? Could the cat pry his way out?
I've also seen suggestions to hang deer netting or even volleyball nets from hooks around the balcony (the nets can be removed to avoid trouble with the HOA). Has anyone tried this? Couldn't a clever cat get under or around such a net? It might be hard to fasten down every loose edge.
I've also thought about just buying a big pet kennel, but would my cat really enjoy it? He wants to dart around and explore, not sit in a cage (even a big cage).
I'm looking forward to suggestions!
