Easy to assemble. We placed the run around a tree so the cat had a scratching and climbing pole. Has been much admired by visitors and the cats are happy to play for hours.
Easy, straightforward to assemble. Access perfect for cats with the 2 doors. Able to relocate around the garden. The cats love it.
Once you learn how to assemble it then it goes together quite well and the end product is quite good but the instructions are hopeless. Needs a video on YouTube and some clear photos. Rethink your instructions from scratch.
Omlet Says: Sorry to hear that you had problems Kathleen, we are working on an instruction video.
This is a marvellous product, which I'm hoping to extend on next year. When I'm also hoping to get another cat. Thank you
I ordered a 3x3x2 cat cage on the Monday thinking I would have a couple of weeks to prepare a site. The pack arrived on the Friday; just four days to get to the east coast of Tasmania. My wife was over the moon, not only that; she read somewhere in the instructions it would only take one and a half hours to construct. I would like to meet the person who wrote that.
The instructions were easy to follow, and plastic fasteners used to hold the cage together were quite simple to clip on – they can be clipped using just one hand which is useful while holding the cage panels together with other hand, in fact after a while I was able to clip the fasteners with my eyes closed, which turned out to be useful when finishing the cage assembly late into the evening. I would so like to meet that person who reckons one and a half hours.
This cage has been designed for a perfectly flat base while most sites would have some slope or other.
I used earth sods to build a level footing – will it last? – I believe Offer’s Dyke was built with earth sods, (I wouldn’t recommend sods for chicken enclosures; chickens are the ideal machine for breaking up sods) but I digress.
Because of the raised footing, I dispensed with the perimeter base mesh, and instead used some 70x35 treated pine attached to the cage by means of some simple home made screwed clips.
 Instructions, - Adequate.
 Tools & Fasteners; - Only tool required is a philips head screw driver for the gate latch, - More than enough clips for the job
.Quality, - Workmanship on the whole generally good, welding a bit sus around the gate latches.
 Product – No pieces missing, Good quality coating. The plastic clips are not described as UV stabilised – surely Omlet wouldn’t overlook this, would they?. Also there is a design challenge here for a structure that can be built on sloping ground.
Here’s a tip for potential cat cage owners:
Because this is a lightweight cage I would suggest that any covers (shade or rain) be used, they should not be attached only to the cage, for a decent gust of wind could see it in the neighbour’s garden.
Omlet Says: Hi Eric,
No we haven't overlooked the clips they are UV stablised :)
We purchased a cat run about 3 months ago
and our cat loves it. He waits at the back door to go outside, its
fantastic we can look our our windows to check on him.
It is so secure that I know he can not get out.
our cat is nearly 8 years old and up until now we haven't let him outside. He enjoys watching the birds,seeing the sunshine and
all the noises that come with being outside.
I would recommend it to any cat lover and you have the piece of mind that it is very secure.

We bought this run for our indoor cat so that she can spend some time outside and enjoy the sunshine and the birds. It is very sturdy and was easy to put together. We feel confident that we can leave her outside in her run and go out and she will be safe. Excellent product
This cat run is just perfect. Most of all the cats love it too - we only have to open the back door and our two Maine coon cats walk straight in and spend virtually all day in it. If we were to purchase again I would pay for this to be assembled though as it was hard work trying to assemble this with the help of a 3 year old - but we did it! Love the fact the run can be moved and knowing the cats are safe and secure. Thank you Omlet!
Delivery was excellent , with recyclable boxes. Hubby and son built it over two days ,having read and reread the plans it all fell into place. It's very sturdy (despite gales ) The stable door really helps keep our cat Tassimo in whilst we put stuff in and out. She's a Brown Burmese and is safest as an indoor cat and so this enclosure is perfect for her especially now that i have some structures inside that she can climb up on and watch over the garden wall. I bought a metal rose arbour which we put up inside the enclosure and it just fits ; it has bars that I've been able to put planks accoss and with the addition of a step ladder has given Tassi lots to clamber about on and a lovely bench for me to sit on too. I spent months researching what would work best and rather than spend two and a half thousand on having a fence built enclosing the end of the garden , this has been a brilliant alternative. We've been using this for about a month now and Tassi is happy to be left in it whilst we potter about the garden.
We are using this for one of our cats who has poor sight and hearing. Once erected this enclosure looks very attractive and is quite spacious. The benefit of this as opposed to the more common wooden ones is that it allows you to see right through to the garden beyond and the green colour fits in well with the surroundings. Also, it is sturdy enough so there should be no chance of a cat escaping.
It did take my partner about five hours to put it together and you do need another pair of hands with one or two parts like the roof supports. I have to agree with other reviewers that the instructions were poor and it would have been so much more helpful and taken us less time if proper photos of various stages and/or some written guidance had been given rather than the sketchy drawings which were not always easy to follow.
I do think it is over priced and whilst I realise this is the chicken house renamed as a cat house, if its going to be described as a cat run enclosure, it would be nice if it could be modified to have the addition of one or two complementary green shelves which cats like to sit on to keep the overall attractive look.
Having said that, I am still very pleased with the end result.
