An outdoor cat cage is a fully enclosed area that can be attached off your home, or stand alone in your yard. It works the same way the enclosures do at the zoo. It will keep your cat safe, offer security, and you won’t have to worry about him/her getting loose or lost.
Now these cages can range from a few hundred bucks, to thousands of dollars, so you want to build one based on your income. Yes, I said “BUILD”. If you don’t have any handy man skills, there are companies like Suncatcher Enclosers who make cages that can be easily set up out the box. Some options even include window access entryways for your kitties.
Another option that can actually be cheaper for some, would be to just enclose the front or back porch of your home. A back porch is more ideal as you may or may not include another doorway. Back porches tend to be smaller and offer more for your cat to enjoy as far as animals and plant life goes.
No matter what you decide to go with, having an outdoor play space for your cat will not only make their life more enjoyable, but they will live longer, happier, and healthier lives.
