Jayli Wolf has always known how much her Grandfather adored his pets.

Raised by her Grandparents, Jayli soon came to realise that most of the time, her Grandfather prefers animals to humans! However, it was when her Grandad moved house that he excelled himself as a devoted cat owner.

Meet Bruce

Handsome Bruce is nearly 20 years old. He's lived with Jayli's Grandfather since he was six. For many years they lived on a farm where Bruce enjoyed spending his days playing outside.

However, things changed when Jayli's Grandparents moved to a trailer park. There wasn't the same, safe outdoor space for Bruce to play in. But Jayli's Grandfather was determined to find a way for his beloved Bruce to be still able to play outside safely.

Feline fortress

That's when he came up with the idea to build a huge cat playground. Using wire fencing and tunnels, Jayli's Grandad built an incredible feline fortress that runs across the entire outside area of his home. It's so big, it runs from the front house to the back of the house. It even goes up a tree.

Jayli's Grandfather spent a lot of time digging underground tunnels to ensure Bruce could safely stretch his paws outside. Thanks to him, Bruce can explore outdoors, go into the outdoor shed where Jayli's Grandad works and amazingly, even go up a tree.

Not surprisingly, Bruce loves his new playground. He's outside in it every day and even pops in to check on his owner in his workshop. Bruce's feline fortress has given his owner the peace of mind that his beloved feline friend is always happy and safe.
