DIY cat enclosure

Just Starting Out

DIY cat enclosure


Hello everyone, 


I'm looking for advice. Wanting to build something like the cat enclosure in the image along my fence line. Would I be better off with treated pine or can I use pvc pipes? Renting so I can’t have anything super permanent up. I need my cats outdoors with a baby here now.

@shakthi Welcome to the Workshop community.

Thanks for your question.


A timber enclosure I feel would be more structurally sound and easier to attach mesh to, however it will be more time consuming to deconstruct.


Looking forward to seeing what feedback our helpful members have on the topic.
