Benefits

Cats love choices, and a Cat-A-Maze™ gives your cat the freedom to come and go outside, while keeping them safe from harm.

Cats enjoy fresh air, the sights and sounds of nature. Cat-A-Maze™ provides your cat with an environment that stimulates their natural curiosity.

Bored cats may also be stressed cats who sometimes engage in destructive behavior or develop chronic diseases like urinary tract infections. Cat-A-Maze™ may help to alleviate your cat’s boredom by providing environmental enrichment that stimulates their natural instincts and curiosity.

Letting your cat “outside” into a Cat-A-Maze™ protects your cat from hazards, and prevents exposure to parasites and other organisms from eating prey.

DID YOU KNOw that

Sadly, 14 million cats get lost each year, and 3.4 million enter shelters; less than 5% of cats who come to shelters as strays are returned to their owners.

The life expectancy of indoor cats is 17 years on average, while for outdoor cats it is only 3-5 years.

cats are like kids

Over half of American households with cats view their cats as members of their family. Just like kids, cats need our protection, and will thrive in an enriching home environment.

When outside, cats are both predator, and prey

Free roaming cats are at risk of injury or death from predators like coyotes, other wild animals, loose dogs and feral cats, vehicles, diseases and sadly even human cruelty.

In one study on cat mortality, the leading cause of death was from trauma.

an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

The truth is, when we let our cats outside unsupervised, we can’t protect them.

keeping our cats safe is responsible pet ownership, and good environmental stewardship, too

Cats’ hunger and prey drives are separate instincts. Well-fed house cats still hunt, but only bring home 25% of their prey.

Loose cats kill approximately 2.4 billion birds every year in the U.S. alone, making cat predation by far the largest human-caused (they are an introduced species) mortality threat to birds.

33 species of animals, 23 of which are birds, have gone extinct because of cat predation.

The Cat-A-Maze™ Outdoor Habitat Kit was created with cats’ needs for safe outdoor enrichment and bird conservation in mind.
