It isn’t just a big play pen. What Mr Roche has created has the sort of dimensions we might see of a zoo enclosure. The giant structure composed of wood and metal has occupied Roche’s life for the past year, and last month it was completed.
Roche and his partner adopted Jelli about a year ago but as time went on the cat became poorly and introverted. Roche believed outdoor activity to be instrumental to the cat’s recovery.
After adopting two other cats since then, the couple’s plans for a large cat pen began to take shape.
The finished structure comes complete with water bowls and litter trays. It includes walkways, doors and climbing frames.
Although there is no access between Roche’s house and the pen, the master builder hopes to create a skywalk to enable the cats to walk back and forward at will.
If they could talk, the cats would surely thank their human counterparts for all of the effort!
