Excellent product and easy to install. Our indoor cat now enjoys being outdoors and is safe.
I was quite nervous before I came to assemble the run as I was doing it on my own and had read that others had struggled. I laid every piece out in order (I had the 6' x 9' x 6'8" model) and I did struggle with the clips, even though I soaked them in water, but that was mostly because it was a cold day. It took me 6 and a half hours to do but I'm so please with it, it looks wonderful in the garden, very tasteful. I added Astro turf, a kennel and 4 tier outdoor cat tree and voila! Awesome!
Received the 6 packages, all well protected with very clear build instructions. Initially a little time consuming, but once understood the full build process it went together very quickly. My wife assisted with the roof and final fitting of the remaining clip arrangement. We have it in a temporary location for now on the patio, soon we will move it to a grassed area. Our Maine coon loves it already even though we have not fitted it out yet with shelves and climbing frames. To sum up a very well presented and sturdy cat enclosure, excellent product.
There isn't anything else like this on the market, it blends well and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like other runs. It is secure and stylish :) It took just over a couple of hours to erect and have done a time lapse video in our full review on: https://teamstokey.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/omlet-cat-enclosure-review.html
This took several hours over days to fit together in spite of my partner being very used to this kind of thing. It was cold and so the plastic clips were tougher but even so, we were surprised.

To make the clips easier to use in cold weather, it´s an excellent tip to soak them in warm water for about 10 minutes before use. This makes the plastic a little softer and the whole process of using them quite a lot more comfortable.
I hope you and your cats can now enjoy the run for years to come.
I managed to get this larger version of the walk in cat run assembled on my own (and I'm not a fit or strong person at all) only with the help of my 90 yo dad to hold one end of roof when I connected the other... so to say the least, this is a simple and straightforward way to assemble lightweight yet sturdy materials for a cat run. Its spacious enough for our plastic garden table and four chairs, along with a lounge chair, so we can keep the cats company on nice days.
Looks very neat and professional too... not an eyesore in your yard. And our access to get in and out is simple yet secure too.
Excellent value for money I think... and I feel very secure that my cats won't be getting out of this to roam the streets!
Excellent, the cats love it. I have other runs but made of wood which will need upkeep. I like the idea of a quick hose down every now and then. As I have a large garden, I have bought a plastic dog kennel to put inside the run, in case we have a downpour, the cats can shelter until I can get to them. I will definitely be buying another one soon.
We are very pleased with our purchase once we had ticked off everything we should have and put into separate piles it was quite straight forward. and the cat can be safe and sound in his cage which he seems to like very much.
We use the run for a stray cat we got from the vet. Having been partially feral she craves the outdoors but is quite compromised being deaf with very poor sight. We are on the isle of Skye and there are numerous raptors about; she would not survive long. The run seems to be a good halfway house for her when we want to keep the doors of the house open. The run was well packed and instuctions were easy to follow. My wife is 68 and I am 71, yet although it took about 2-3 hours to put up, it went up easily.
A bit confusing at first but completed in 2 hrs.large anough for our cat and all her toys and bits. Very good value.
