Building Cat Enclosures

Building enclosures for cats is a very different experience from building enclosures for dogs. Cats more so than dogs cats are very unique creatures. For example cats can develop as many as 100 different vocalizations while dogs normally are doing good if they develop 10. Felines have their own unique personalities, likes, dislikes and quirks. If you want to plan on building cat enclosures for cats then you must take into consideration many different things if you want the cat to like what you are making. It is not possible to say that every cat that is a Persian will act in a certain way and like certain things and dislike certain things etc… But having said that here is a short list of some of the personality types you can expect to find in some of the different feline breeds. There are many breeds and each has its own personality characteristics. These just happen to be some of the common characteristics of a few of the most popular cat breeds:

Siamese: must be the center of attention and if not will do what it must to be noticed (even intentionally misbehaving), is a very active, energetic and possessive animal, geneBuilding Cat Enclosuresrally noisy they are renown for their constant mewing.

European: in appearances very similar to street cats, comes in a variety of colors, medium to large sized and though its character is varied the differences are never drastic.

In the case of mixed cats, any that appear similar in looks to the European can be characterized generally more or less by their hair length. Long haired means calm and relaxed while the short haired variety are more active and energetic.

Persian: medium to large sized, small faced with long hair that requires lots of grooming, is calm and not easily bothered and lives well with other cats or animals including dogs.
