Would definitely buy this product again.
My 12 1/2 pound cat absolutely loves it. Only way I can see an improvement is to label each section for identity purpose. Then you could remove the label after assembly. I love the way the screws are identified. Made it so much easier. Great job. I would highly recommend this product. I'm using mine on my deck.
I would buy this product again
Purchased the Wooden Outdoor Cat Sanctuary in December. Arrived before the original due date which was nice. The product was easy to assemble but the parts are not easily identifiable. It would help if the pieces were labeled. If you take the time to separate and label everything, it all goes together very quickly. I had not one issue with assembly. You can even partially assemble the base for a test run to see how the product goes together. Everything makes sense when you give it a test run without screwing it together. When you are ready to do the actual assembly, you will be better prepared. After the assembly was done, my cat loves this enclosure. For the price, it is well constructed and we are very satisfied with the purchase. I would recommend to anyone looking for an outdoor enclosure. I researched a lot of sites and have previously purchased a unit from Cats on Deck. While Cats on Deck is a superior product, the cost is triple of the Trixie.
Nice quality, solid roof.
This product is a MUST HAVE for indoor cats!
We would definitely make this purchase again! Our cats LOVE being outside and we LOVE that they are still safe. Putting the sanctuary was easy to construct and the instructions were easy to follow. Really appreciated the way the screws were packaged, making them difficult to lose and visually easy to know all the parts were there. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Leo and Mittens rate this a 4 paws up! They love being outside in this spacious new kitty condo. It arrived on schedule, was easy to assemble, is sturdy, and is very good quality. The latch for the door is a little bit flimsy but works fine and will be replaced at a later date.
We use this enclosure inside as a nursary for our Exotic Shorthair kittens. It works perfectly.
LOVE this product
It came in so fast. It was easy to put together. Its PURRFECT for our 2 kittens when we are not around. 1-2 kittens/cats can live in it perfectly. We bought ours for the inside of the house.
Needs major work on the packaging.
Product looks great. Comes in two boxes, both boxes were all beat up like they tumbled down a flight of stairs. Two pieces were slightly damaged. The manufacturer really needs to mark the pieces, the instructions are terrible. Product does look good once done though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Great if on sale. Add a Polyurethane coat.
Overall worth the money. Though I bought it for a hundred less than the current price. The roof does not have an overhang like pictured. Wish the wood was sealed with Polyurethane.
While my cats love this attachment to another cat enclosure, some parts were damaged in shipping. A couple pieces cracked when the screws were put in due to knots in the wood. Was easy to put together. Some problems with lining up holes.
Overall, good quality
Overall quality is nice. Instructions are not the clearest and construction took much longer than projected. Door catches could be improved and the low door does not provide the easiest access for the human who needs to get inside to clean, etc. Cats seem to enjoy and the structure is sturdy.
So glad we bought this one!
Beautiful! The cats love it. Plenty of room. Very sturdy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I would buy this product again
My cat loves it. It is hooked up to a cat door from the house and the cat constantly goes in and out. A couple pieces was slightly damaged in shipping but my cat doesn't mind. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This cat sanctuary is awesome!!! The only downfall and reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that some things don't line up but it is a super easy fix with a drill/screwdriver! We did use more screws than it said to get it more sturdy. The instructions aren't the greatest but with some common sense you can figure it out. It only took my husband and I about an hour to put together! We altered it a little since we put ours against the house we didnt need all the sides and made it wider instead! Our cats no longer door yet and they LOVE getting some outdoor/ fresh air time! I don't have to worry about them wandering off now :)
Fat cats approved !
It was easy and quick to build, two man job for sure. It arrived in two different boxes on two different days but don't let this worry you. It takes a philips head so grab one of those since they provide a flat head for you. Sturdy and well crafted. My fat cats enjoyed the ledges and the height of them.
Cats LOVE it!
This is awesome!!! The instructions aren't the clearest I've ever read, but we eventually figured it out. It is a great size. The cats love it. I have a little bit of a chubby kitty and it's incredibly sturdy even when she's jumping all around. The chicken wire is also pretty heavy duty so I don't have any fear leaving them out of my sight. They definitely wouldn't be able to claw or bite through the wire. We put it against the window and cut a hole in the wire so then they can come in and out as they please when we're home. I am really glad I purchased this. It's a very unfinished wood, so it can easily be painted. That's what I plan on doing! Totally worth the money.
Reviews were helpful. Wish overall size was listed and weight.
The danger here is predators, too many to mention here... While the cats would enjoy their outdoor time in this, they would not be protected from many predators. If you are sure to sit in the yard with them, and not leave even for 'a minute', it might be ok. Otherwise, look up ways build one that has the right kind of protective metal screening...chicken wire is not strong enough!!! Predators can dig under an enclosure also, so it must be anchored down! http://www.communityconcernforcats.org/resources/enclosures-for-cats/......... https://habitathaven.com/gallery/
my daughter and i bought this and our cats love it as much as we do. it's made good, goes together good, some holes don't line up bit was no problem. well worth the money. our kitties can be outside and be safe!
Cats love it but poor quality
My cats are use it all the time. They love it. Less than a year after having this outside, the shelves all came apart. Really poor quality. We made new shelves and painted it. The cats are back on the shelves...but it is a safe way to allow the cats outside.
