How to make outdoor cat tunnels to increase your cat’s territory

Last updated Apr 23, 2020 @ 11:26 pm

Making outdoor cat tunnels is a great way to increase your cat’s territory in a safe and inexpensive way. Read on for step-by-step instructions on how we added outdoor cat tunnels to our existing catio.

As a multi-cat household, we are always trying to devise new and interesting spaces for our cats to co-exist peacefully and to enrich their world. In the past few years, we have added outdoor elevated tunnels to our existing catio enclosure and we were excited to add ground tunnels to increase their space and offer a more enriching and stimulating environment.

How to Make this Irresistible Spring Grass Oasis Lounge for Your Cat

As the cats crunch on their delicious grass bucket at their newly decorated Spring Oasis lounge, I am reminded of how important it is to offer new and exciting textures that are attractive to cats. Sensory enrichment for your cats is just as vital to his well-being as any other form of enrichment.

Overflowing with a myriad of textures and smells, the Spring Oasis Cat Lounge offers an attractive space to explore, drink, hunt and relax after a long winter.

A New Year, A Fresh Purrspective

It’s that time of the year again when we’re making New Year’s resolutions. Not a fan. Instead, I like affirmations. Because life is like a cat, unpredictable, fast-moving and a little wild. It’s fluid and ever-changing so we need to be open to shift our focus and reboot, which may result in a new and fresh purrspective or a completely different pathway than the one you’ve chosen.

And that’s okay.

Create a Spooky-licious Cat Salad Bar that’s frightfully easy with colorful water beads

Growing cat grass for your cat is always a fun project whether it’s for an indoor salad bar or an outdoor watering hole. At the Chirpy Cats lair, we like to keep fresh supplies of grass pots, especially when the weather cools down and the cats spend less time in the catio and more time indoors visiting the salad bar. In our Ultimate Guide to Growing Cat Grass, we provided step-by-step instructions for growing cat grass the traditional way with potting soil.

Why not change things up a bit and ditch the dirt for water beads? Yes, you’ve read that right, no soil needed. For this grass project, you will be using water gel beads instead of potting soil to grow your cat grass!

Who are the TUFCATs and where are they now? #GlobalCatDay

TUFCAT Feral cat project at the UWC campus in cape Town South Africa

Global Cat Day, celebrated worldwide on October 16, was borne out of a need to rally for and strengthen support for humane policies to protect community cats. It’s a day to celebrate and spread the word that community cats have their rightful place on this planet and can coexist with humans in our living environments.

“The purpose of Global Cat Day is to strengthen support for humane policies that protect cats. October 16, we’re rallying people around the world to take our pledge to speak up for the cats in their communities and show kindness for all catkind.” Alley Cat Allies

Last year on Global Cat Day we shared stories about the community campus cats at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. Mr. Spunky, in particular, had his heart healed by a litter of four kittens. I caught up with Dr. Sharyn Spicer, lecturer and founder of TUFCAT, The UWC Feral Cat Project, and I was pleased to hear of the many positive changes and major successes along their sometimes very tough journey.

Why I Write About Cats and my WIPIN Rising Star Award!

 

It was one of those crazy mornings; cleaning up a scarf and barf incident thanks to Charlie, trying to coax senior girl Sarabi to eat her favorite flavor of Fancy Feast and scurrying around trying to find a new spot for my latest cat grass project that the two Yoots had just uprooted! I was late for work and things went pear-shaped from there.  Read More

Make a cat grass bed to impress your cat

Cats just love to make things up as they go along. They’re masters at improvisation and resourcefulness. They’re the bohemians of the animal kingdom, loving the comforts of the finer things in life, while always keeping a paw on the wild side. Cats play by their own rule book and the power of their purrsuasion and cat-nnovation has prompted cat lovers like me to make up words like these!
