Can my cats come there on vacation?
post #12 of 105
Wow, that looks great. Do you want to come to Ohio and help me build my enclosure for our rescued bobcat? Now that the weather is finally starting to get warm, I say starting because we are due to get some heavy wet snow...again, I am hoping to get going on my enclosure.

Thanks guys, it is raining today, we have thunder lightning, wind- so far it has stayed up! lol

We went yesterday to a farm irrigation factory and purchased a section of black irrigation tube- 14" in diameter. These will be the tunnels leading from the enclosure to the house, mounted off the ground for the cats to travel and not get wet. I wanted to get them early so that we can lay them around for the cats to get comfortable with before using them for access tunnels.

That's a great idea for the tunnel. Once we used a mail box for our tunnel to one we made. It was great because you could close it off with the door.That's gonna be a huge space. Wish I could get my hubby to build one that big.

post #18 of 105
I'm sure they'll be enjoying their new tunnel toys!

The roof is going on tomorrow (hopefully) though they are predicting rain

MA - it looks fabulous! Here's hoping there's no rain today (Rain, Rain, Go Away, come again some other day!).

As you may recall, our cats LOVED tubes! Ours weren't outside, so we used the thick cardboard ones used for forming pillars. We purchased carpet remnants and used duct tape to attach strips of carpet inside the tubes so the cats could easily climb up and down. Maybe more tubes could easily be used as ramps to different levels within the enclosure.

The "Miller Gang" are a very fortunate lot indeed - and it looks like they'll soon be moving into a new level of cat heaven!
post #23 of 105
That looks AWESOME!! That's one of my dreams someday- when I buy my own home to build an enclosure so my cats can go outside but at the same time be safe from outside "dangerous" elements.

Is this intended for the outside ferals or for your cats (inside/outside cats)?

Pls keep posting pics of this! Can't wait to see the outcome..
post #24 of 105
Looking good. I just wish I could start our enclosure for our rescued bobcat. But, with the way the weather has been, who knows when I will be able to do it. The ground is just to soft and wet.

And the hard part is done- now comes the fun part, filling up the inside with tunnels, ramps, and places for the cats to play and hide-

I don't know why but these tubes look like an alien might have landed
