    Adding loft with cat protection?

    We currently have a 2x4 C&C cage for 2 pigs. We just got a third and need to expand. I was thinking of adding a loft, but we have 2 cats (our current cage has the closet maid shelving for top protection). Can you add a second level and still keep the cat protection/closet maid shelving? If so, I'm having a hard time picturing how. Has anyone done this? If so, could you describe how, or point me to pics?

    thanks so much!!

    There are probably some pictures in the gallery.

    How old are your cats? And how old are your pigs? Adult cats are generally ok with adult pigs -- the pigs are too big for the cats to do anything to them. But kittens are curious and try to play, and their sharp claws can injure a pig. Baby pigs dart and run, like mice, and can trigger the cat's prey drive. My own cat was really interested in the pigs, but now he just occasionally hops in the cage for a nap with them but otherwise leaves them alone.
