We have recently moved house to our new cat paradise! Some 5 months late after interminable delays with a dodgy builder but at least we have made it here eventually.

The two English stud boys spent several months in temporary accommodation but finally are in their newly purpose built run.

We've fully enclosed (including the whole roof) a large corner of the garden including two old fruit trees, and built a lock up room (insulated and ventilated) with benches and snuggly sleeping boxes up high. Plus they have a covered and paved area, lots of grass and the trees.

It's far from finished as I want to deck it out with climbing equipment, high benches and sunning shelves outside plus a grassy area with shade cloth, and we need to attend to the garden in there - but at least its a start.

It's beautiful!  What a wonderful cat enclosure.  Lots of stimulation and interesting things for them.  I'm sure they'll be very happy in there.

I love it Cathy! & I think the boys do too - if Jack climbing the tree & Prince chasing the stick last time I was there is anything to go by :)

The photos almost do it justice Cathy ..... totally wonderful set up .... I don't think i have ever seen better - and as for the rest of the garden....just wonderful.  A long journey for everybody but you have finally arrived.

Thanks Heather - we are finally all settling in nicely!

Had a play and photo session with the boys yesterday in the afternoon sun - it was lovely. So good to see them having room to enjoy themselves!
