It’s no secret I love my cats. And it’s no secret that I’ve been vocal in the past about keeping your cats indoors because of the dangers that exist for outdoor cats. But, cats are curious and they want to be outdoors if given the chance. In the past, we lived in places where they could go outdoors without a chance for them to get out of our fenced courtyard when we lived in a townhome. Now we live in a single family home, and while our back yard is fenced, if a cat is sneaky enough, he will find his way through or over that fence.
That is why I was so excited to try out Kritter Kondo. The owner, Lisa, lived someplace where it wasn’t safe for her cats to be outdoors, so she came up with the concept of a safe outdoor pet enclosure. From that, Kritter Kommunity was born.
If you’re not careful, you might find that your child enjoys the Kondo almost as much as your pets do. (although it is not recommended you allow your children to play in it – she was supervised the whole time she was in there)
I did not attach the canopy that came with the deluxe Kritter Kondo, but had I it would have looked like this:
The Kondo is incredibly easy to assemble, and I did so within 3 or 4 minutes. My cats seem to enjoy their time in it, however I have to keep an eye on my daughter because she loves to open the doors to let them out, and let herself in! If you have small children, this could be an issue for you as well.
