Introduction: DIY Cat Run
Your cats are sick of being cooped up! Let them get fresh air while you garden without fear of them escaping or running away!
Step 1: Materials
Wire storage cubes
Note: wire storage cubes can be found for virtually nothing on craigslist or can be bought new at home improvement stores or online
Step 2: Assembly
Start to build the frame of the cubes.
Step 3: Reenforcement
Using zip ties, secure each point where two sides come together. Trim the zip ties to make sure your kitty doesn't get poked!
Step 4: Doors
Using one side (or the adjustable shelf piece), zip tie one side to the other to make a hinge. This will act as a door hatch
Originally only had one top door but my cats would go into the far corner to avoid coming in, a second door solved this problem!
Using a binder clip secures the door "locked" incase your kitty discovers how to push the top open
Step 5: Tips
Originally I made this multi level which looked super cool only to learn my cats preferred to roll around on the concrete patio and sniff the grass. I removed the vertical space and expanded it horizontal. That's the beauty of this design, it's completely customizable and changeable!
This is a great indoor or outdoor enclosure too for other pets too! My hedgehog loves getting some fresh air too! Please always supervise play time
