You will need to install a cat flap so your cat can access its outdoor enclosure. The best ones are those that are gravity operated - they automatically close behind the cat as it enters or exits. I suggest having a clear plastic flap so your cat and see what is outside before it ventures out. Make sure the cat flap has a catch so you can lock it at night.
This gives your cat a choice of places to curl up, without any pain or difficulty that may be associated with climbing. If you really want to go all out, you can look into the really large cat houses. Some of these are really like a cats home within your home. They have spaces for litter boxes, food and water bowls and a bed for your cat. While you may think thats overkill, if you have a dog that likes to get into the litter pan, you may not think twice and appreciate the idea of having all the cats items out of the dogs reach.
An outdoor cat house can be built in an area of the garden or up against the house. It can be like a large aviary or a small shed or pen. There are some commercially constructed cat houses that are sold in kit form. These are easy to assemble and saves you having to build something yourself. If you have a small backyard, you can turn it all into an outdoor cat house by putting up some strong poles to around 9 foot or 3m high, and attaching some netting between them. By keeping the netting loose, your cat wont be able to climb up it and there wont be any need for a roof.
Cat houses are available in all shapes and sizes, perfect not only for one cat, but for many if you have a few felines running around your home. Sometimes referred to as kitty condos, a typical one will be circular in shape and is crafted out of some kind of wood, which will then be covered in some durable fabric, usually carpeting, that can withstand your cat clawing and pawing at it. You can purchase one that is a single level or ones that are multi-levels, featuring different enclosed areas where your cat can lay around in luxury and style. There are some that are square, rectangular, and are a combination of styles that have towers, perches, and platforms, even toys built right into them, so your cat has a place to play when it is not resting. Really, there are a lot of options to choose from.
