Step 16: Finally, peace of mind and a great place for the cats.
As I was preparing this instructable, my wife photographed this fox on our back hill. This year we cleared our pine trees and now see fox more often. ...
Step 12: Cover with chicken wire
Except for the top of the habitat, one person can do the chicken wire work, however it went faster and easier when my wife was helping me. The wire is 48" wide and I cut each piece separately rather than one continuous piece up one side, across the top and down the other because it was easier to handle the wire in 8 foot pieces. I used 3/8 inch staples in a battery operated stapler to secure it. At first I tried 1/2 inch staples but they were very hard to fully drive into the wood, so be aware that longer staples may cause problems.
