Like their larger cousins, domestic cats are designed to roam and explore outdoors. They can readily escape from a conventionally fenced yard and will do so regardless of the dangers that threaten them – dogs, cars, stray cats, disease, getting lost and other unforeseen hazards.

Catmando can help!

All enclosures are predator proof. Some are even bear proof!

We were looking for a way for our cats to explore outside without becoming part of the food chain. We've moved three times around Colorado in the last 8 years and John has been wonderful dismantling and reinstalling the cat enclosure, adapting it to its new space. John comes out and helps you select the best area for the enclosure in terms of sun and grass. Then he creates a plexiglass window with a cat door using the screen from the selected window as a template.

The enclosures are bear proof. We had one sit on the piece mounted outside the cat door and it bowed slightly. I like the simple way the enclosures are affixed to the house. it's not intrusive and with a couple of screws and washers its easily removed if you need to paint.

The cats couldn't be happier. Ours seem to love to catch live mice and let them go in the house to kill later. Ugh! We hear them turbo around at night and know they have one cornered. Then we find it in the morning. The cats are pleased with themselves and we couldn't be happier with the enclosure.

why catmando?

Catmando owner John Kuepper has 20+ years experience keeping cats safe and happy. As a result, he has learned:

  • There isn't one material, system or approach that will work in every situation.
  • Tunnels can make the seemingly impossible situation, possible.
  • Kittens are particularly difficult to "contain" but it can be done.
  • As your pets age, modifications may be necessary to address mobility issues.
  • Some cats are very difficult to contain, but we are up to the challenge and determined to keep them safe .
  • Coyotes are in every metro neighborhood—you may not see them, but they are there.
