There is no doubt that this is a great looking cat run designed with adult cats in mind. I have purchased it for my rescues which are mostly little kittens and transported it over 1500 miles overseas. The assembly was easy and completed in just a few hours. However kittens managed to escape through the roof that is too wide for little kittens. This was dangerous and they ended up on the road. Luckily none of them were hurt. Finally I solved the problem by buying and attaching sun mesh shade onto the roof of the cat run. Please consider re-designing the roof mesh holes to be the same width as the side panels to prevent kittens from escaping. Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 2 x 2 x 1

This is a great option for housing cats. But the fasteners are garbage! We used about 300 small tie wraps to secure it after building. The tie wraps made it escape proof and more sturdy. There is a video on how to build it. It was very helpful because the directions are not so great. Review for: Catio Outdoor Cat Enclosure - 9ft x 9ft x 6ft

Omlet Says: Hi Susan,
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you are finding this to be a great option for your cats.
We are surprised to read about your disappointment in regards to the clips. There should be enough provided in order to tightly secure the assembly. If you find that you would need extra clips in your specific case, don't hesitate to have a look on our website, where these can be purchased separately.
We also stay at your disposal if you need any further information or any further help in assembling your product.

Yes found this to be a nice product took a little bit of sorting out but easy once I did.
Hope to extend by another 2 sections in spring as our cats love it .
Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 3 x 4 x 2
After spending much time researching the many different catios on the market, I am satisfied with my decision to go with this Omelet product. The 6 x 6 x 6 catio is a good size for the small patio slab outside the back door of my apartment. Assembly was not simple, and I had to refer to the video every step of the way. The printed instructions could be better. I found the great many small plastic clips involved to be problematic, as unclipping some to move them to a different position rendered them unusable. I will need to order more of those when I move. Disassembling this and then reassembling it after a move will not be easy. I think this catio would be ideal on a nice lawn in the backyard of a house. But it's good, on the less expensive end, and I recommend it. Review for: Catio Outdoor Cat Enclosure - 6ft x 6ft x 6ft
I set it up by myself using the video online and the manual, laying it out as per the video I’m only 5’4” so I used a ladder to do the roof. It took me about 6hrs to build but then I am a slow and methodical 53yo woman. The whole enclosure is well made and the clips tough, it took a little while to get the hang of the best way for handling the various clips so be patient with yourself. I found a flat screwdriver very handy for prying apart the pole clips if I’d placed them incorrectly.
I erected this freestanding in my backyard away from the house and try as I might for a week or two my cat did not like it even when I sat in there with her and cat treats and toys and shade cloth so she did not feel too exposed. I was devastated however after much rethinking the structure and my rental property I took the enclosure apart and reconstructed the pieces to make a solid, escapefree run on the side of my rental house. I didn’t drill into the dwelling and I didn’t cut bend or otherwise change any of the mesh. All I added was a platform, a bridge made from garden edging and a cat hammock. Now my cat can come and go when she wants she happily pops in and out through my bathroom window and I still have a complete 2x2x2 run if I ever need to move. Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 2 x 2 x 2
This has turned out to be great solving the issue of letting the kittens be outdoors but also keeping them safe if I cannot watch them. Was fairly easy to set up. Needed two people for sure. Besides the plastic snaps that hold it together I did wire tie it in several areas to be sure.
For some reason the wire caging is small on the bottom - but larger on top. For kittens is would be better to have it all small since they can stick their head through it. Maybe provide a option if you want order all the small caging?
I continue to add things inside for them to climb and keep busy.
I would recommend it for sure and it looks nice as well.

Easy to assemble - hard part is probably ensuring you have a flat surface. Mine is on grass.
Solid enough - I was a bit worried as I live at the top of a hill and we get strong winds but it will be fine - its sturdy enough plus its open so the wind will just go through it.
Open - it seems very open and I think the cats feel a bit like they're in a goldfish bowl but that will be sorted when my climbers grow.
Door is easy to open and shut.
One negative is that the wire in the top part is wider than the bottom part - a small bird could easily fly through especially now while the babies are about. I noticed a wren nearly flew through one day while it was on my hanging basket.
Time will tell how long they last but so far I'm pleased, despite having initial delivery problems.
Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 2 x 2 x 2
The run was easy to construct with two people, the clips are a little fiddly.
Once constructed the run is very solid and spacious enough to give our two indoor cats some outdoor play space.
I've rated 4 stars rather than five as a few of the panels had a bent corner, we were able to straighten them out, but when paying this much money you sort of expect everything to be spot on.
Overall, very happy with the purchase and would recommend. Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 3 x 3 x 2
We bought the low-level cat run to try it out, thinking that, if our indoor-only cat (he's deaf) liked it we would extend upwards. As we weren't sure exactly where to site the run we made it up to only half the depth to try it out (it's about double the size of a dog crate at the moment). At this size we can move it around the garden (two-handed) and put it on the patio to mow the lawn. There is enough space for Murphy to walk around and to sit and watch the birds and insects, and the other cats when they are out. We cover one end for shade if the sun shines and give him a mat, water and toys. So far he's not a big fan - he doesn't seem to see the point - but as time goes on he may come to enjoy his outside time; it must be good for him to get some sunshine on his fur and some fresh air in his lungs and we can add to his space with the panels we have left over if we want to.
We found it fairly easy to put together (a flat surface helps a lot) and being green and lightweight it doesn't look too out of place in our small garden.
Four stars not five because the middle t-shaped supports don't seem quite tall enough. Review for: Outdoor Cat Run - 2 x 2 x 1
