Are you scared that your kitties are at danger from predators? In that case, a cat cage or playpen is just the solution for you to keep the cat safe and contained at certain times.

Buyer’s Guide

It is important to know the different types of cat cages available in the market, and the factors that should be used to evaluate a cat cage to understand a product better. We are padding up this information in the buyer’s guide with answers to a few FAQs to remove any confusion whatsoever that still persists in the minds of our readers.

Why do I Need a Cat Cage?

Feline cages serve various different purposes. Some of the important reasons why you would need a cat cage are as follows:

  • Litterbox Training

Cat cages should be large enough for everything they would need from food, water, and a place to sleep to their litter box. This would force the young cats and kittens to use a litter box and will become a good habit for them. By the age of six to eight weeks, they can be released into your home without fearing that they will take a bathroom break anywhere in your home.

  • Taming Ferals

Feral cats are cats that usually live on the street. The idea behind caging ferals is to give them an opportunity to socialize with human beings. If you straightaway wanted to interact with a feral, the chances are that they would scratch or bite you for they are scared. But caging them and socializing with them during this period will help to drive away their fear of human beings and give them an opportunity to get domesticated.

  • Quarantining Pets

Quarantining pets is a very beneficial practice to pet owners with multiple pets of the same species. This practice is done to prevent contagious diseases from spreading to your other cats. If any of your cats are showing symptoms of sickness or disease, it is important to quarantine the feline inside a cage. This will give you an opportunity to check on their condition regularly and observe them carefully. Quarantining the cat should be for two weeks minimum and if no fresh symptoms are shown, for 4-6 weeks at a maximum.

Besides these, cat cages could also be handy when you are either introducing a new cat to the household. It is also useful when you want the cat to travel with you at least for a vet visit. At such times, you cannot keep the cat free to move in the car because it can distract you while driving. The cat will need to be crated inside a cat carrier while being taken to the vet in your car.
