Cages - Enclosures - Non Domestic Cats

Guest Author - Diana Geiger

Enclosures and cages for the non-domestic cat - large cats the bigger the cage the better. The cage needs to be strong and sturdy. The cage should be at least 500 by 1000 sq. feet and even bigger for the large variety of cats. The cage must be a minimum eight feet tall. Cats are much more comfortable in taller cages. It should be constructed out of 9-gauge cyclone fencing.

Be sure to check all enclosure specifics for housing as mandated by law.

He must have a den box inside of the cage. A den box is needed for several purposes. He needs a place to sleep and hide. He will enjoy lying on top of it. Most importantly, you will need a place to keep the cat while cleaning his cage or during a emergency situation. The den box should be made with the minimum of 3/4-inch plywood. The size should be no smaller than 4'x8'x4' tall. The box will need a slider type door or a guillotine styled door that works from the outside of the cage. On the back of the box, you need a hole. This hole will be from where you feed your cat. Place food in the back of the box, when the cat enters, the door can be closed with the cat inside.

The main entrance to the cage - enclosure should have a double gate. This way when someone is entering, the first door is closed and locked before the next door is unlocked and opened. It also acts as a double safety feature in case the cat should get out the inside door.

Cats love water and must have a pool that can be cleaned and flushed. A good litter box for a cougar is a child's sized plastic pool. Make sure the cage is built so that it has proper drainage. Place scratching logs inside the cage. They love high sleeping ledges.
