A sturdy enclosure made just for a cat
10 June 2022
So many people think they can use a large dog kennel for cats..but they don’t realize that there is space all around the bottom and top and along the door that is just wide enough for a cat to get out. This has no such space anywhere. My cats are Houdini’s but no escape was possible. The doors open easily to put a cat in quickly or extract one. Two of mine jumped on the same side of the enclosure and it didn’t even wiggle! One comment is that the paper instructions are not good and they don’t quite follow the order of construction as shown in the video. It took longer to assemble than originally thought. Use the video and watch it several times and stop when needed for assembly.

Enclosure attached to our old Trellis

Thank you for helping us create a relatively quick outdoor place for out cats to explore and sleep!
We'd barely finished building this enclosure, put in a few rough walkways, and our 2 cats are already playing and enjoying spending the day outside. We plan to build platforms and walkways throughout the structure so they can look out over the world

Fantastic cat enclosure
27 April 2022
Am absolutely over the moon with the omlet catio pen and equipment, it has now given freedom to both disabled cats who can now enjoy outside freedom. Unfortunately Sebastian was rescued after being involved in an Rta which resulted in an amputation. Also Brear force one who was rescued from a sad situation has a condition called PRA is now completely blind and didn't understand why he couldn't go outside. The pen and fantastic equipment omlet produce specifically for the pen allows even disabled cats to have there freedom and enrichment.

Great product terrible instructions

It’s a well thought out design to be fair and perfect for our deaf cat. It was a bit of a nightmare to assemble. Instructions like complete the mid level aren’t very helpful ???? Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 9ft

I have bought the balcony enclosure as I wanted to be able to move it around.

Love my purchase, my husband has mounted it on a plinth with wheels so it can be moved to wherever is best to keep an eye on my cats. Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 12ft

Deciding to have cats once again, it seemed that with a few modifications, the Omlet balcony unit(s) would fit the requirement for a protected outdoor environment. Because I was modifying the basic units by increasing the height and joining together 2 units, the order was complicated by the parts additions I needed.
No problem! With the help of a lady member of staff, who really knew their product, the order arrived in 17 separate boxes and was COMPLETELY correct.
Next, I checked the quality of the individual parts, which met or surpassed my expectations with the welds on the mesh being neat and the paint finish being both durable and a pleasing colour.
I personally found the assembly instructions straight-forward and the accompanying videos informative. After modifying certain of the extra parts to suit my modifications, it all went together very smoothly and relatively quickly.
We're very pleased with the end result and think it looks an reasonably elegant addition to the rear of the house being practical but not too intrusive. We have next to furnish it with shelves and cat tree, followed by acquiring a couple of occupants. Lol.
Price-wise it's reasonable against other makes, and VERY reasonable, once you add in the quality and 'look' of the finished project.
I would definitely recommend this system of Catio building. Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 12ft

A Great Catio
22 October 2021
It was intimidating at first and I procrastinated because I thought maybe I would pay a handyman to put it together. I’m glad I didn’t. I ended up doing it all by my self! I’m 65 and short! I did not find the video helpful. They really need to have a diagram of step 1, 2, etc. But call them on the phone if you get stuck. My cats love it. It is really well made and sturdy. I bought 2, a 6’ balcony and a 9’. I haven’t put the 9’ one together yet as I need a lot of room to lay it out and I am still in the middle of a move. CATIOS ARE THE GREATEST. They will change your life and save your cats’. No coyotes, no cars, no fights, no loss and no calling the cat in the middle of the night wondering where she or he is. If you are wondering if it’s worth the expense, absolutely! I had wood kits before and screened in porches, but this is really a great kit. Really pretty easy to put together once you get in the groove. Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 6ft

Sturdy. cats love it.

Now that it is up, the cats love it. Gotta say that the assembly process was not great. The instruction booklet was probably the worst we have ever encountered. The Video was slightly better. One of the most mysterious things was why all the different "clips". Esp since some of them would not stay clipped. Much easier to just ditch most of the clips and use zip ties.

Cat loves his own space
28 May 2021
Really pleased that we bought our Catio in time for late Spring/summer. Our house-cat has loved spying on the birds and bees between the plants and has likes to roll around in his own private space. It's also nice to sit in there with him, with a cuppa, early in the morning. I contacted Customer Services once with a small query and the service was excellent. Looking forward to adding more climbing platforms in the future and many more happy hours over summer. Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 9ft

amazing item...i thought about getting for ages...lockdown gave me the final initiative...i made it all myself ....customised it slightly for my space...i even made it more secure than it already was with extra cable ties and chain and padlock for the doors...i love also the look of it ...you can see flowers and garden through it.

Simple but effective

Assembling the enclosure is a two-person job. Once you know that and you leave an afternoon free to get it done, putting the enclosure together is pleasantly straightforward. Our cat is delighted with it. Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 6ft
Exactly as per photo

I bought this as an extension for my existing Omlet enclosure (because of garden shape and obstacles I couldn't use the simpler, cheaper option of an extension kit). These enclosures are far more attractive than the traditional wooden enclosure, as they're almost unobtrusive from the visual point of view. If I hadn't paid so much for my wooden enclosure I would remove it and replace with Omlet! Review for: Omlet Balcony Run - Catio - 6ft
