Below are some of the bespoke pieces that we've made but because Hicat® products are made-to-order we can make to any customer specific request so if you have something particular in mind then please get in touch.
Bobcat units can be fabricated as extra tall units & have additional Access Holes & Shelves included - typically these units are 1000mm & have two Access Hole Compartments & sometimes Climb-Through Compartment.
Another variation for Bobcat units is a Double Deep Bird Nest feature that increases the standard 60mm depth to 120mm, which means that there is still a recess after a cushion is installed - this feature is also particularly good as a sleeping area for multi-cat households.
We recommend placing ballast in the base of standard Bobcat units to prevent units from toppling & don't advise going above 1000mm high for these special units but if you do want something taller you always have the option of using a Wall Fixing Kit to install a +1000mm high unit or a bespoke Freestanding Fatcat.
We've experimented with a modular freestanding version of our Fatcat, which we named Catapilla™ - it's made up of interconnecting stackable compartments that can be rotated independently of each other in 360°.
The Body compartments are 400mm tall & there's a 470mm high Bird Nest Top compartment to finish off the unit - it can be stacked four units high when mounted on its 720mm diameter base.
Polecat Wall Shelf
Polecat units can be fabricated with an integrated wall mounted shelf - the Polecat can be floor-to-ceiling or wall mounted & are particularly good for customers on a budget who want to give their cat a high perch.
The shelf measures 360mm deep, 460mm & 40mm thick & is usually finished in a white paint finish but can be sprayed with a colour then lacquered
This bespoke design was the inspiration for a our Cat’s Cradle, which is now offered as an alternative to this fixed shelf.
+3040mm High Units
Polecat, Tomcat & Fatcat units can be fabricated taller than the standard maximum 3040mm height up to a ceiling height of 4800mm as a one piece unit.
We always offer a word of caution to customers thinking about ordering extra tall units as climbing to the top can be daunting for some cats (& their owners) - also, when specifying Climb-Through Access Hole Compartments on these units there will undoubtedly be large internal spans, which could be difficult for some cats to climb down through.
We've made high level bridges that connect to the top of Tomcat & Fatcat units & extend on to either room features, furniture or another Hicat® - the walkway is normally a 200-250mm wide coir covered MDF shelf & can extend up to around 1200mm from the Hicat® unit.
