Purrfect PlayTent Portable Outdoor Cat Tent Catio & Small Pet Tent

Newly Redesigned!

The Purrfect Playtent is our most portable and affordable pet enclosure. Great for use as an indoor or outdoor cat tent or small dog tent. Our innovative design offers unmatched durability and ease of setup. At 79" Wide x 66" Deep x 42" Tall the Purrfect PlayTent will easily fit multiple cats, small dogs, and even their humans!

The magic is in our Flashset © locking hub located at the top of the tent. This amazing system allows for the Purrfect Playtent portable enclosure to be set up in under 15 seconds and disassembled at the same speed. 

Made from UV resistant double-stranded industrial fibers, the mesh portion of the cat tent is flexible, soft and will easily stand up to kitty claws. The material we use TWICE as strong than other popular cat tents. The tent gains its structure from durable fiberglass poles which are 40% thicker than standard tent poles that extend in opposite directions from our Flashset © locking hub.

For comfort and safety, we include a removable "second skin" of waterproof nylon material used for the tent top to make roll-up sunshades for each side as well as protect the cat or dog from rain, sun or wind. Held in place with pre-formed clips that securely lock in place and easily removed. The removable weather cover works great when rolled down for visual blocks (think neighbor's dog, traffic, etc.)

Our small dog & cat tent comes in its own heavy-duty bag for easy transport and storage. Not a thin material that tears easily like most pet tents.

There are stakes included with the cat tent to secure it to the ground but it can also be set up on hard surfaces like decks, patios, and balconies. Let your cats get a safe taste of the outdoors with the Purrfect PlayTent portable outdoor cat tent!

Disclaimer:  The PlayTent makes a portable outdoor enclosed area. To be collapsible and portable, it must use a mesh fabric and framework that easily compacts. We have not had instances of a cat chewing but it is certainly not impossible even though it has been designed specifically to avoid it. It is also subject to outdoor conditions like wind. It is not a rigid permanent structure. We do offer permanent outdoor structures and call it our Purrfect Penthouse and suggest you consider it or a custom version of it if you are not looking for a small enclosure that is specifically portable.

If you do not regularly let your cat(s) outside, the cat(s) may absolutely love it or may become stressed and appear to be panicked or anything in between. It takes time for your cat(s) to adjust. Patience is important while they become comfortable which can take many times of use. Be advised,  if a cat spent any time inside of it, it is not returnable due to the many ways a used item of this nature could possibly harm other cats.

Purrfect for what we need!

We are working with a colony of cats in a sort of private cat rescue effort, and we needed a place to isolate a few cats at a time so they can recover from being neutered or spayed. I love it that this little tent can be set up inside, which is where we have it. We carry the cats straight to the tent from the vet, and we have a few boxes set around inside that they can get inside or on top of, plus a litter box, water pan, and food bowl. They are quite content with an overnight stay in a quiet place to sleep off their hospital visits! We also use it for kittens with colds, as we can place a space heater and humidifier just outside the tent so that they can have a warmer place to sleep and moister air until they recover. When they're feeling a little sick, they love to be in the tent. I have given it four stars only because the tent zipper is a bit of a design flaw--it would be better if there were two zippers that could meet in the middle, as it's hard to unzip far enough to place something in the tent without one or more cats getting out if they're so inclined. I am also wondering if the sleeves for the tent poles would wear very well if one takes this tent down and puts it up very many times. I expect some of these features have been changed in the newly redesigned tent. I am very grateful for this one, though--it's a wonderful thing to have. Little kids would love to sleep out in this tent, too! It's quite spacious and would hold an adult as well.

Great idea!

Small improvements as we have 2 cats. A small piece of fabric to step on to do up the zipper one handed. We take the cats out one at a time. Plus a double zipper to be able to lock the zipper so we can leave the campsite for a few minutes and not worry someone will take our cats! Great design though. Thanks again!

Hi Christina! Thank you for the feedback. It looks like one of your recommendations is already present on our updated version that is recently available. There are straps you can step on just below the zipper start to hold it down with your foot while opening! As for the double zipper we will have to look into that and see what options we have. Thanks again!
My cat loves it!

It took just a few minutes for my cat to adjust to it and then she laid down and relaxed enjoying the outdoor sights and sounds. Now she stands at the door begging me to take her outside. I wish it was a green color instead of black but other than that it's excellent. Quality is great too. I wish they used this assembly technology in camping tents as well. It's so easy to set up and take down. It only takes seconds to do. I have recommended it to my friends and family.


nice. convenient size. easy to use.

A great way for cats to enjoy outdoors

I love this tent and my cats really love to sit in it and enjoy the great outdoors. One of the poles was defective and the company sent me another replacement right away. I had no other problems with the poles since. Thanks for great service!

Cats love it very l arge and well made.

I have had the cats in it and they were very happy.

A versatile indoor/outdoor pen with great lounge/play space

We needed a solution to keep our cat safe and contained (roof so he would not jump out) as he recovered from a damaged knee ligament. The Purrfect Playpen is an excellent choice and the product has worked very well and provided the durability, ease of use, with plenty of space to keep our cat relegated to one spot as he recovered. The space is large enough to place a cat bed, liter box, food & water dish with plenty of lounge space for our pet. The Purrfect Playpen is awesome and looking forward to having our cat join us outdoors on the deck.
