If you have decided that you would like to own a cat that is the closest thing to owning a wild cat while still giving you the benefits of a house cat, then you may want to consider a savannah cat. This breed of cat is a cross breed of a domesticate housecat and an African Serval. Savannahs are graded according to the percentage of Serval they have in them with an F1 being the closest to a true serval. From there, the grades go down to F2, F3, F4, F5, F6 and so on.
Savannahs can be quite large and can be a lot of fun. They tend to have a lot of characteristics of dogs, with many of them living to walk on a leash, play fetch with a ball and even swim in water. If you own a Savannah, you do want to take extra steps to provide it with a living environment it will flourish in and this can include creating an outdoor space for them. Here are some things to consider when you are building an outdoor area for your Savannah cat:
You should build the enclosure where the cat can enter it through a window
This way, the cat can go in and out of the enclosure when they want, but you also have the option of closing off the enclosure anytime you don't want the cat to go outside for any reason.
Make sure you purchase all the cat enclosure building materials you will need
You're going to want to purchase such cat enclosure building supplies as 2x4 boards, nails, a hammer, cat fencing, cement and roofing material. You should also purchase plenty of cat scratching posts for the cat to climb up. Since you have a Savannah, you may also want to get a kiddie pool so the cat can play in the pool when they want.
Things to consider when building the cat enclosure
You should give it a cement bottom, so it will be very easy for you to clean and so the cat won't be able to dig out and dogs won't be able to dig in. Give your cat a litter box out there to use when they are in the enclosure. When you are building a cat enclosure the cat fencing will need to cover all sides from the top to the bottom and it will also need to go along the entire top since cats can climb. You can use hard plastic material for the roofing. Once the enclosure is built, your cat will have a great time.
