Technical specifications: clips and panels

The cat-house is modular and consists of panels and clips.

Every recycled plastic clip is inserted into a panel and allows to join at most three other panels, one placed perpendicular to 180°, the others to the right and one left to 90°. The same clip, therefore, is used both to assemble a single Catown module and more complex structures. On each side of Catown you need two clips to give stability to the module.

In each order, you will find a suitable number of clips to assemble your Catown.

FSC® certified birch plywood panels are square-shaped with rounded corners for free play, because the sharp edges become easier to damage. According to the use they are processed differently: entry, passage between different modules, interactive games, scratching posts. Every panel is protected by a trasparent paint that is natural and no-toxic for felines and humans.

A variant of Catown to the square form is a rectangular module that allows you to make comfortable open kennel for cats, just beds.

Square panel

Dimensions: 295 × 295 mm

Thickness: 8 mm

Weight: from 450 to 750 g depending on the type of panel

Material: birch plywood, FSC® certified

Rectangular panel

Dimensions: 295 × 90 mm

Thickness: 8 mm

Weight: 250 g

Material: birch plywood, FSC® certified

N.B. In the panels small differences in measurement can occur due to the processing and mobility of wood, which is a living material. This does not affect Catown’s mounting, functionality and robustness in any way.

Technical specifications: assembly instructions

Easy to assemble Catown, without tools and special skills. Everything has been designed to be simple and quick to assemble, and even disassemble for a possible transfer, thanks to the modular system. The square panels can be positioned and moved as desired between the various faces that compose the cube, rotated on its own axis and also inside-out. This is useful in the case of the personalization double face model, to show once the side with the print, once the neutral one, and even if you decide to color a face of your Catown. The combination of the various panels allows a multiplicity of possibilities thanks to the clip we have developed.

Build the Catown cube

Take a panel and 16 clips. Combine these to “L” two by two, then insert two “L” clips on each side. You have the base of the cube; now fit the vertical sides. In the panel that remains, put on each side the clips left and use it as a cover: here the Catown base module is, cubic ca-house.

Join multiple Catown cubes together

Once the basic cube has been constructed as described above, decide in which direction to make it grow, whether horizontally or vertically. Remember that every new cube will have a panel in common with the previous ones. Does this panel have the internal shape you need? It will be closed, if you imagine that the cat will pass from one cube to another externally, or it will have a central hole for internal passages. Of course it will not be the scratching post because it would become unusable. When you have chosen the side from which to start, it is sufficient to fit another clip on each of its two clips and thus form a classic “T” connection; there, insert a new panel and continue with the clips until the new cube is closed. Continue until you’ve run out of the modules you want. To make everything even easier, we have prepared some video tutorials.

Technical specifications: cleaning and maintenance

Catown cat-houses are hygienic and can be cleaned without disassembling.

  1. When necessary, clean with a simple cloth dampened in water and then wrung out the washable panels.
  2. For a frequent care, our kennels for cats can be vacuumed with the advantage that you will not find accumulations of hairs. In fact, the slots between the panels, in addition to allowing a constant and sufficient recirculation of air that favors the comfort of the cat, tend to remove hair and other impurities from the doghouse. Thanks to the Catown module structure, every corner is easy to reach and clean
  3. Damaged panels? The panels are made of natural wood to give satisfaction without risk to us cats who, as you know, adore getting our nails and nibbling (the rounded corners will limit the damage). If the friendly enthusiasm or even the wrath of your feline friend, have really compromised a panel, you can always replace the single element: a convenience, right?
