Wall Mounted Tomcat
Tomcat units can be fixed to a wall rather than ceiling by using a Wall Fixing Kit - they are normally specified between 1820-2220mm in height & have 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 a 2220mm high unit type but these can be customised in position at a minimum of 300mm centres from the top or bottom of the unit & centred at a minimum of 400mm apart.
The Wall Fixing Kit allows Tomcat units to be installed 180mm from the wall - this is to give your cat some room to climb & play around the back of the unit but this standard spacing measurement can be modified to between 60-240mm when placing your order.
The Wall Fixing Mount comes in unfinished MDF as standard but can be painted either white or black as a cost 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.
Peep Holes can also 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.
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 the aperture in Climb-Through Access Hole compartments to create a larger lounging & sleeping area.
The unit can be wrapped in either Bleached or Natural Coir as standard & is finished with Black Twist Pile internals, base & shelves.
We generally recommend leaving a minimum gap of 300-400mm depending on the size of your cat between the unit & your ceiling so your cat can sit upright while seated on top of the unit - units can also be rotated & installed with the Access Holes facing in any direction.
Installation is very straight forward & units come with all of the necessary fixings so all you will need to install your Hicat® is a step ladder, screwdriver, tape measure, pencil & a drill.
Wall Mounted Tomcat units can weigh up to 30kg so you will need another pair of hands to help you install your Hicat®.
