A cat enclosure on the balcony of a modern apartment with a woman and a cat inside The Cat Balcony Enclosure gives your city apartment or flat a secure cat proof balcony

Made from strong steel mesh coated with a technically advanced dark green coating the cat run looks stylish and unobtrusive on your balcony. Cats love the sensory experience of being outside where they can feel the breeze in their fur, watch the comings and goings in their surroundings and hear the birds sing. Every size of Cat Balcony Enclosure is also large enough for you to spend time outside with your cat.

Looking across at a balcony showing how the cat balcony enclosure fits easily Designed to fit on any kind of balcony or roof terrace, the secure cat enclosure is extendable in width

Measuring (3ft) front to back the Omlet Cat Balcony Enclosure is narrow enough to fit on almost any balcony. It’s a generous (6.8ft) high in the centre and is extendable in length from (6ft) up to (12ft) as standard, please call or email us if you would like a longer run. The Cat Balcony comes with a removable run skirt that you can use to help secure the enclosure to your balcony. Please note that you will need to secure your Cat Balcony Enclosure directly to your building using appropriate metal fixings which you will be able to find in all good DIY stores.

"My cats LOVE their new balcony cat run. It's secure and allows me room to interact with them too. Now Gregory and Mitchell sit at the top of their cat tree, 4 floors up like kings of the castle!" - Lindsay

Allow your cat the freedom to explore a new environment without compromising your personal usable space. We understand that useable living space can be at a premium which is why the Cat Balcony is tall enough to be used by people as well as cats. This means that you can continue to enjoy your balcony as before, which means more freedom for your cats and no compromise for you. Why not place a chair or bean bag inside that you can both snuggle up on?

The sky’s the limit as far as accessorising the cat run is concerned and your cat will really love exploring their new territory.

Why not upgrade your balcony cat enclosure with an optional porch to give you an “airlock” style entrance? The porch is made from the same strong steel mesh as the balcony enclosure and gives you complete peace of mind when transferring your kitty in and out of the cat run.

"I love the look of the mesh panels which also provide a really easy way for you to secure the run to your balcony. We used some metal bicycle locks but I'm sure there's lots of other options. My cat Olly loves exploring his new playpen and watching the world go by!" - Carol

You can add covers to your Cat Balcony Enclosure so that your cats are kept shaded and dry at all times. The covers are made entirely from water proof materials that are highly durable and are available in a range of different sizes and styles - discover the range of covers available for your cat run here.

Please note that when using a cover on your Cat Balcony Enclosure it is especially important to ensure the run is secured to your balcony with appropriate metal fixings to prevent gusts of wind from moving the run.

Important! Please Read Before Using Your Product

When using the Cat Balcony Enclosure on a balcony, roof terrace or other similarly elevated position, you must secure your cat balcony enclosure directly to your building to help prevent high winds from lifting it. You should always use metal fixings to either attach it to a balcony railing or to bolt it to your building. Appropriate fixings are available from all good DIY shops. If in any doubt consult a qualified installer. In windy conditions, we would always advise removing any shades, hammocks and covers as a secondary safety measure, as the weight of the enclosure itself is may not be enough to prevent a high wind from lifting it.

No. The skirting comes with all runs, but you can choose not to attach it, or remove it whenever you want.
If you’re using the enclosure on a balcony or another elevated space, you must secure it to the building to prevent high winds from lifting it. Consult an expert if you’re not sure how to do this in a safe manner. On very windy days, we would also recommend removing any covers from the run.

It is possible, but we don’t have a customized solution for it. It may also weaken the stability of the run, so we would recommend securing the structure to a wall or the ground. We suggest you speak to a DIY specialist to make sure you get the right fixings for this.
Yes, there are extension kits available to make the run bigger. Speak to our customer service team and they will let you know which panels you need to purchase.

Excellent catio
The space I had for a catio was a long but fairly narrow strip of patio. I bought the large and with the help of the staff, a few loose pieces to custom fit with access from a window, secured to the wall. My cats love it, they choose to use it in all weathers. I've planted catnip around the outside and am slowly pimping it up for them.

Well designed flexability
Catmaskgirl, Washington,
Flexible set up options allowed us to use the door for bird feeder access, keeping the opening at the sliding glass door, as it fit snugly against the building.

Cat balconies and cat outdoor runs.
Great quality. My cats love them. Outside I added drift wood for climbing. I must keep a few felines separate at meal times and bed times so I use the balcony enclosure inside. Cannot wait until those shelves come back in stock! I hear they will be better than ever with new fabric that will last. I would love organic Cotten fabric materials 💜

The Perfect Catio!
Kari, New York,
We purchased the Balcony Catio and outdoor Freestyle Cat Tree so our cat could safely enjoy some outside time with us when we’re on our back deck. It immediately became her favorite spot in the house. Easy to build, safe, secure, and keeps her and the wild birds safe. Would be great if Omlet offered a little attachment kit - like four small panels of the wire so you can build your own little “pet door to Catio” connection tunnel. We are making our own out of spare parts from our Omlet chicken run. :)

Enrichment for the Kitties
Stephanie, North Lanarkshire,
I have a Catio on the balcony, with a rain cover. Every morning the cats ask to be let out and they sit in it for about 45 minutes, then they want to come in again, repeat in the afternoon...they seem to like it. They'd rather be free out in the world, but I don't want to deal with dead creatures they'd more than likely bring back, or worry that they've come to harm, so I am absolutely delighted with the Omlet Catio. I noticed that I hadn't written a review yet despite having had it for a while. I hope to move soon and add sections onto the existing structure to make it much bigger, when I have a garden
