Cage for cats
Caring for your cat doesn't require a lot of investment, but you'll definitely have to pay a small amount of money. One such expense is a suitable cat cage. There are a lot of them on sale and therefore the classic question arises, which of them is the best to choose?
Cages and conveyors
Cages for cats are a good idea, but if you just want to transport your cat in comfortable conditions, usually the optimal solution is the so-called transports.
The conveyors consist of two parts: an openwork diffuser and a built-up main structure. They also have a handle at the top. With such a transporter you can easily transport your cat in public transport or simply put it safely in the car or in the plane (here are some additional conditions). Transporters are cheap and their choice is large.
Advantages and disadvantages of the conveyor
Among the advantages of the conveyor one can certainly mention the low price, especially transporters made of plastic. They have comfortable carrying handles and are safe for both the cat and the person carrying it. Disadvantages of this solution are the risk of damage to quite delicate material and the fact that the conveyors are practically useless in stationary use.
Cages for cats - advantages and disadvantages
Cages also have many different types. They can easily be used in stationary conditions, for example in shows. Such cages are openwork and very durable. They can be easily used on balconies or at home. It's easy to find the right frame size for your account. Unfortunately, such cages are not very comfortable during the transport of the animal, and their prices are quite high.
Types of cages
Cages for cats are basically an open collection, as the divisions can be made in many ways. Usually we talk about it:
- veterinary cages made of special resistant materials in which cats are housed during exile to the vet. Veterinary cages have their own litter trays and drains and are sometimes heated;
- balcony cages, usually large, can also be placed in the garden. Such cages are often a solution for people who want to separate a part of the outdoor space for the cat, but do not want to do it with even a net. Thanks to the cage the cat will not escape and will not accidentally fall out of the window. It will also be safe from external factors;
- home cages, used for cats that are not able to convince themselves to pens or beds. This type of cage can also be used as insulation when a new animal appears in the house or something stressful happens. This application requires a lockable cage if necessary. It's worth making sure that the cage is large enough for the cat to stand upright, lie down comfortably and stretch. The cage must contain a bowl with water and food, and preferably also a tray;
- exhibition cages, adapted to the needs of cats during exhibitions.
