You can keep your cat in a tent with you while you are out camping but an even better idea is to get a mini tent of their own!

Why You Should Get A Cat Tent?

These are really nice to have while camping as cats love their independence. It also gives them a place to sleep at night and they won’t be bothering you while you are resting in your tent. When you aren’t camping these can also be a nice thing to have around your house for your cat to play or hang out in.

Some of them however aren’t really suited for all night camping and are best used to be outside for the day only.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Cat Tent

  • Assembly: Some cat tents are a headache to setup especially if they are larger tents. If you don’t like long setup times make sure that it’s easy and simple to set up
  • Type of tent: Not all tents are suited for all night camping, in certain weather conditions or even outside overall. For example, if you need a tent for rain then you need to make sure that it is water proof as all of them don’t have this feature or if you want to camp outside all night you probably wouldn’t want to get an all mesh tent as this could be dangerous for the cat since predators could see your cat and break through the material.
  • Size: You might want to consider the size that you want for your cat or cats. If you have more than one cat then you might want to get a bigger one so they have room to play with each other. If you have only one cat you might want to go with a smaller one as cats are happier in smaller spaces.
  • Tube extensions: If you want even more room you could get a tent with a tube extension on it. You can usually buy these separately. You can connect it to another tent and they will have more room to play in. You could even connect it to other things as well such as a door or a window.

1: Pettom Dog Cat Camping Tent

This is a great tent to go with if you don’t want it to be see thru. Its also water proof and you can close the windows on it if you need to. It comes only in green unfortunately. Click here to check the current price on amazon.

2: Outback Jack Outdoor Cat Enclosure

If you want something on the larger size this is a great option to go with. You can also buy a tunnel with this tent that attaches to the front and you can connect it to another tent which will give your cats even more room to play around in.

Its completely made out of mesh so if you don’t want something your cat can see through or possibly rip holes in this might not be the best option for you. As long as your cat is well behaved and laid back you shouldn’t have a problem with them ripping the material. Click here to check the current price on

3: Nala and Company – The Cat House Outdoor Pet Enclosure

If you want something similar to the previous cat tent but smaller and more compact this is a great choice to go with. When you aren’t camping it can also be used indoors as a cat bed which is quite convenient to have. Click here to check the current price on amazon.

4: PURR…FECT FENCE Purrfect Play Tent

If you want something that really high quality and will last you a long time this would be a really good choice to go with. Its very large however (76” Long x 62” Wide x 40” Tall) so you might not want this one if you want a smaller sized tent.

Its also water proof which is nice for rainy days and can be stored easily when not in use. Click here for the current price on amazon.

5: Strong Camel Funhouse Portable Tent

If you need something on the larger side (77.17″ x 65.36″ x 35.43″ ; Net weight: 2.64lb) for instance if you have multiple cats this would be a great tent to go with. This tent is also mosquito proof which is also a nice plus. The only con is that it doesn’t have much privacy as you can completely see through it. Click here to check the current price on amazon.

7: Sherpa U Pet Tent Dog Portable House

I like this tent a lot because of how easy it is to set it up. It works similar to how an umbrella works. You just pull it up and its ready to be used by your cat. The windows are claw proof and it comes with a special attachment that can be put on the top whenever it rains so your cat doesn’t get wet or you want them to avoid the sun.

It also comes in a really nice grey and you can get it in medium. Click here for the link.
