Cats have seemingly taken over the internet, yet people still struggle with finding the best cat accessories online. Cats spend approximately 15 hours a day sleeping and have various napping places in and around your home. You might actually have a cat that is too rambunctious and needs to be kept in a cage at night. In either case, your cat may have to spend an extended period of time in any portable cage. Other times, you might just want to keep a cat outside, but you don't want to limit or restrict their freedom of movement. Whatever the case is, you need to be informed about which type of cat cage is appropriate for you and your cat.

If you're introducing a new cat into a home filled with other pets and safety is a concern, an indoor cage with all the standard pet amenities with multiple levels for them to climb around inside is what you should focus on. If you plan on having them in this cage just for when they're small or feeding, then you might not need all those extra bells and whistles.

Maybe you're just separating this cat to diagnose an issue or need a place for a mother to nurse her new babies. Any cage you get has to be designed with one or more of these specific needs in mind. And it has to be safe so collapsing for folding areas don’t harm your cat. With this in mind, here are the 5 best all-around cat cages that are versatile enough for all cats and situations.

MidWest Homes for Pets Cat Playpen

This type of cat cage is ideal for both giving them plenty of room to roam and climb about while providing a safe space for them. Designed mostly with comfort in mind, this three-level wire cat cage is coasted with Electro-Coat finish and ABS plastic accessories, so it's easy to clean. With large swinging doors for easy access, swivel and lock casters to roll it around, this particularly larger model is one of the most popular cat cages due to its versatility and size. It comes with a plastic floor pan, a small playpen for kittens, and a deluxe Chenille bed for sleep time.

Pros

Prevue Pet Products Premium 3 Level Cat Home


If you're starting to notice a pattern here in this list, it's that cat cages with a multi-level design are more preferable to a single, box-like model. If offers cats much more room to move around, and this cage from Prevue Pet Products is no exception.

There are no real gaps for pinch point areas to endanger your cat or yourself, and its heavy-duty and rust-resistant construction uses aluminum channels rather than metal wires to help reduce additional injury.

The fact that such a well-designed, collapsible cage is also easy to use makes its popularity understandable.

Pros

- Safe, channel construction

- Multi-level, versatile indoor design

- Rubber casters to move and lock cage in place

Cons

- Hammock might not hold larger cats

IRIS 3-Tier Wire Cat Cage

Many multi-level cat cages aren't designed to remove your cat easily. IRIS has designed their three-tier wire cat cage with quick access to your pet in mind - it comes with three different access doors (one for each tier), a molded base and two perches for them to climb on. Not having to coax your cat to the bottom when you want to take them out is a whole lot easier with these options. Additionally, it has a pin-lock latch system on each of these doors - reducing the amount of pinch points with this cage. It's easy to assemble, collapse and move around with six rolling casters.

Pros

- A entry door for each level

- Pin-lock system to reduce pinch points

- Stable and mobile all at once.

Cons

- Levels and perches may be too high for kittens to roam and climb around.
