Cat enclosure

Thursday, August 15, 2019
   Does your cat long for the great outdoors? Imagine he's a lion fit for the jungle? But you dare not let him leap from the balcony or roam the neighbourhood...
Have a look at Mr Petman's planning page. With compulsory cat containment mooted for the whole of the ACT now is the time to consider your cat's best interests.
Keeping cats entirely indoors is detrimental to their mental health although much safer and ideal for their physical health. Allowing your cat outdoors in an enclosed environment is the ideal solution. They have mental stimulation and physical exercise but are safe from other cats, dogs, snakes and cars.
Mr Petman suggests a variety of enclosures either home built, purchased as kits or planned and constructed for you.
