5 Reasons Your Cat Might Need A Portable Cat Enclosure

Cats are animals that are instinctively curious, and as happy in their own company as they are sitting on their owner’s lap. Just like humans, there will be times where your cat genuinely needs a space of their own, and one of the best options to provide them with that is a portable cat enclosure from Cat Enclosures Perth.

There are going to be times when your cat needs to be in their cat enclosure, not because they have decided to wander into it, but because you choose to place it in there. This choice might be based upon what is best for the cat, and there will be times where it is for your benefit.

No doubt you can think of lots of times when you wish your cat would ‘go away’. Do not feel guilty about that as every pet owner has said it when their beloved dog or cat is acting up in some way. The key here is that you provide them with the means to go somewhere safe as in a  portable cat enclosure.

Portable cat enclosures come in a variety of types, sizes, materials, and configurations, and you will also find some pet enclosure suppliers who will create a bespoke one to match the space you have available. So, what are some of the reasons that you might be glad that you went out a purchased a portable cat enclosure and some of the scenarios when it will be in the cat’s best interests to be in there?

Illness/Injury

We obviously hope that your cat does not suffer any injury, nor gets ill, but it is a possibility. If it does happen, rather than them trying to recover in a house that might have multiple disturbances, children running around, and even another pet, they would be better being alone. In their cat enclosure, they can rest, recover, and be kept calm, especially if recovering from a broken bone or surgery.

Expectant Mums

If your cat is female and pregnant, for similar reasons to a cat trying to recover in a manic household, being able to feel secure and have the privacy that her cat enclosure provides, will help her before, during, and after the birth. The enclosure will also prove a perfectly safe environment for her newborn kittens.

Another Pet

A new addition of a different kind is when you are adding another cat to the family and  Its introduction might go smoother if it is first placed in the cat enclosure. Here they can get used to sounds and scents around them and it allows you to observe how your original cat reacts to them, first from outside the enclosure and then gradually inside.

When You Have Visitors Or A Party

Whilst one or two visitors might not be upsetting for your cat, if lots of them turn up, or if you plan to have a party with several guests, your cat will most likely feel safer and less stressed if it were out of harm’s way and away from all the noise. Their cat enclosure is the ideal sanctuary where they can relax or even sleep while you and your guests party the night away.

Travelling

With the word ‘portable’ a bit of a giveaway, the obvious place for your cat to be if you are taking it with you anywhere in its portable cat enclosure. Whether for a vacation, or simply a quick trip the vets, your cat will be safe inside and not be tempted to disturb you whilst you are driving.
