The Lion’s Den is one of the most popular pre-configured catio enclosures. It uses a minimal amount of space against your home, garage, or outbuilding. It is also wide enough to go over most residential doors and windows which makes for easy access from inside to outside using a pet door.
The Lion’s Den measures 46″D x 92″L x 92″H.
Three-sided enclosures feature top, bottom, left, right, and front sections entirely enclosed with wire mesh. The side which will connect to a building (long side) will be left open except for a 6″ lip all the way around for fastening.
On the Lion’s Den Style 3, you are able to select which way you would like the door to be positioned to best suit your needs. Using the diagram below be sure to select the door position you would like. Currently, these are the only two-door positions available without additional costs associated with customizing the enclosure. If you would like an alternative door position, you are welcome to contact our design team!

Our enclosures are made from durable galvanized steel mesh panels that are then powder-coated black to ensure a long-lasting weatherproof finish.
Floor and Shelves:
Our shelves and floor are cut to size and made from cedar, naturally resistant to water, bugs, rot, and mold. It is the ideal material choice for outdoor catio shelving and flooring.
Human Entry Doors:
The access doors are 2 feet wide and 5 feet tall. This purposely small door is designed small for a reason. It is installed 4 inches off the ground as well. The door has been tested since 2003 as the most effective way to force the person entering to be mindful of their surroundings. When you enter a door like this, you will naturally be careful of where you step, what is above you, and to the side. All of this awareness has proven time and time again to minimize any would-be kitty escapes during entry. The swing of the door (left or right-hand swing) is adjustable and can be set to either option during assembly.
Holes for Tunnels, Towers, Stairs, etc.:
Component holes are not cut where the tunnels, bridges, stairs, and other components meet the enclosures. Since the mesh is relatively easy to cut on-site during assembly, we leave the choice of where these holes are located up to you so you can position them as you see fit. This also avoids costly mistakes being made and/or accommodates site issues discovered during assembly.
