Cat Garden

These pictures are of our cats' garden enclosure. They have a plastic dog kennel that used to belong to our little dog Joe. The entrance/exit from the cat flap in the window of our dining room/lounge is made from our guinea pig hutch, the garden has cat friendly plants including cat nip and cat grass. They have fake grass from Clark Rubber, and it all sits on a concrete base The frame and the wire was from Bunnings and it was made in about a week by the whole family. This way the cats can get some fresh air and be safe too. All the plant pots have solar garden lights.
If anyone has any ideas on how to add climbing equipment without taking away light and space, please leave suggestions.


  1. Oh, what a wonderful idea.
    I need to print this off and pass it around to our not so caring cat neighbours. lol

  2. Hi!
    It's my first time commenting. I found your blog through searching for people who loves knitting and passionate about cats. I also love knitting and cats and also doing things for charity. :D
    I am very impressed about the cat garden. Your cats must love to spend time there.
    Nice to meet you ;D


  3. I just noticed I could look at your old posts! (before I subscribed!).
    I love this cat enclosure - such lucky ra-ra-ras (ra-ra-ra is what Thomas calls cats).
    You could use a small unwanted shrub or tree or take a branch from a tree next time you do some gardening (or even buy a small tree in a pot), then cement it into a bucket wide enough that it wouldn't tip over.
    Shame we're not a teensy bit closer - we are taking out lots of small shrubby trees where they are overcrowded.
