Fruit Cage or Cat Run?Answered by Harrod Horticultural Posted in Category Fruit Cages
This may all sound a little strange but I wonder if you might be able to help me. I'm actually looking to build an outdoor cat run and was thinking that a fruit cage framework looks ideal for this purpose.
I'd be looking to attach the cage to the house on 2 sides. So basically I would need: Height 2m(or whatever you have as standard that's close to this) 1 x long side 30 feet (with 1 door) 1 x short side 10feet Roof My measurements are not precise at this stage, but I'd like to get an idea of cost. Also would you be able to supply a method of attaching the framework to a brick wall? If so, could you cost this for me too.As for netting/wire mesh, do you have anything that you would consider 'cat proof'?
And my final question, for now, is, do you supply through any retail outlets? I live in Suffolk (some distance from you) but would quite like to see one of your steel frames if possible, before ordering. Do you know of any in my vacinity that I might be able to have a look at?
Many thanks for your help.
Thank you for your message regarding our Fruit Cages. We have produced pet cages for other customers in the past and we are able to meet your requirements using our Steel Fruit Cages. Our Steel frames can be attached to walls using a steel bracket. The top rods simply fit into these brackets which are then bolted in place and the remainder of the frame is fitted as standard.
The nearest size we do to your requirements is a 9.0m (29'6") x 3.0m (9'9") frame which would be 9.1m x 3.05m outer dimensions. To give you an idea of price, a standard framework c/w door unit and fittings of this size would be £408.00 £9.95 carriage. Our standard side netting should be sufficient around the edges of the frame, however we can supply rabbit wire for added protection, this would be more than suitable for your needs around the bottom edge of the framework if you were concerned about your cat chewing the netting.
Unfortunately we do not have any reference sites in the area at present to see our framework. We are currently working with certain gardens in the area to display our frames in their kitchen gardens which are open to the public.
Please contact again once you have confirmed sizes.
