Wonder where you get this? My kitties want outside so badly. They use to be able to go in and out as they pleased but all of a sudden I was informed that they had to be on a leash! Sorry at age three don't think my one would ever consider it! I tried once and she literally climbed the wall outside the door to get back inside!!

Google cat cages (or enclosures) for outside. There are tons of sites. There is even a "how to."

Now that is an outdoor play area. I think I could build it even. Off to the lumber store. I have a perfect place to build it also.

If you have a cat of the siamese variety they can be trained to go on a leash. We were adopted by an balanese cat when he was about 10 yrs old. We used to take him to France and he would go on a leash while we got him used to the garden there.

Mine is one that was dumped off and I took her in. I also have another one about year younger. I have no clue how to train them tho. I put leash and harness on the one and she literally climbed the wall trying to get back into the house!!

Google pet supplies and you can buy from these places that sell to pet stores and they will sell to you much cheaper then getting in the pet store.

There are "Figure Eight" leashes, primarily for cats. Dogs will back out of them and need the chest harnesses. You used to be able to get the Figure Eights from Petsmart, but I don't know if they still have. I use them in my business. Googleing might be the best option. They are called "Cat Harnesses", Figure Eight", and other names, but they're all the same. The lead goes through and around in a figure eight and slides to fit around the neck and chest. They will tighten a bit when the cat pulls from it, but they won't hurt them. Very comfortable for cats.

Walmart, under camping supplies, has a screened tent, probably bigger than the one in the post. It is $119.00. Great for more than one cat.
