    Hello,

    how many of us have cat runs? They look excellent. They seem rather pricey though.

    :D

    Wow, that is some amazing run Waterlily. I love it. What lucky cats you have :D
    We used to have a run when we lived in the Netherlands. It took us a while to find the cheapest one, but it was still about 400 pounds for a 4 by 4 meter run.
    Later we made our whole garden secure for them.

    I sure my cats could get through those gaps! :confused1:

    I have one, the all looked to expensive with tiny little houses so I bought a triple rabbit hutch which is Massive, that was £100 on ebay, then I got this guy on ebay to make me a run to go on it & that came to £100

    so £200 for something twice as big as a cat run!!

    The hutch is 6ft tall, 4ft wide & 4ft depth, the run is attached to the front and is 6ft long, 4ft wide & 6ft tall, it sounds massive but it doesnt take up the garden and looks pretty good! :thumbup:

    doubt it :cool: the gaps are only an inch and a half squared it just looks bigger cos of the closeness of the camera :)
    this pic shows the comparison to a cat

    WL - I'm envious!

    I have five which are very clearly the product of evolution rather than intelligent design :( My neighbour is putting an extension (panels I was given free) onto the worst one this weekend, that will improve it substantially and make it really useable rather than just something for emergency use.
