With the addition of a floor plate we've created a completely free-standing version of our Fatcat - it’s available in heights up to 1830mm tall & is usually specified as a 4 Access Hole unit with Climb-Through Access Hole Compartments & has a Recessed Platform feature on top of the unit
Access Hole Compartments on your Hicat® can be customised in number & position along with additional features, options & accessories - our Buying Guide has lots of advice & tips so makes for a good read before finalising your order & our FAQs & Customer Notes pages are also full of useful information.
Access Hole Compartments are shown in their recommended configuration based on unit type but these can customised in position at a minimum of 300mm centres from the top or bottom of the unit & centred at a minimum of 400mm apart.
To create this freestanding unit we had to develop an internal mounting collar that is concealed in the bottom of the Hicat® & this construction gives the unit the strength to turn it in to a free-standing structure when secured to its 720mm diameter base.
Fatcat 1, 2 & 3 versions of this unit can also be fabricated but unfortunately Tomcat & Polecat units don't have a big enough footprint to allow us to make these in a freestanding option.
Features & Options
Access Hole Compartments can be specified as a Climb-Through Compartment, which has a opening in the bottom to allow your cat to climb from one compartment to the other - the Recessed Platform Top can be specified with a Climb-Through opening as a bespoke option.
Peep Holes can be added to Access Hole Compartments - these are small spy holes that are positioned opposite the Access Hole opening at the back of the unit.
Our throw & fetch Hicatch toy is made from a Velcro® band & comes with 10 sticky foam darts - the Velcro® band wraps around the unit so can be easily moved to different positions.
Fat Pad cushions can be placed in Access Hole Compartments & Recessed Platform Top to give a softer bed for your cats to sit & sleep on - they can also be placed over Climb-Through Access Hole compartments to create a larger sleeping area.
The unit can be wrapped in either Bleached or Natural Coir as standard & is finished with Black Twist Pile internals, base & shelves.
Installation is very straight forward & all you will need to install your Hicat® is a large slot-headed screwdriver.
Freestanding Fatcat units can weigh up to 40kg so you will need another pair of hands to help you install your Hicat®.
