Cat enclosures have been popping up in homes as far apart as Brisbane and Rockhampton, and furbaby mum and dads are loving them silly.

LJ Hooker Rockhampton selling principal Brit Wheeler said a cat enclosure with two bedroom house on a 455sq m block went under contract just six days into the new year.

The property at 3 Francis Street, Depot Hill, had been listed at $129,000 and was described as having plenty of potential but “needing some TLC”.

There are several ways to deal with space for pets, with this property having a large veranda at the front, a rundown cubby house in the backyard, an enclosed space underneath the house, and a chook pen at the side. But the pièce de résistance is clearly the large cat enclosure.

3 Francis Street, Depot Hill, has its own cat enclosure.

3 Francis Street, Depot Hill, has tonnes of space under the house too.

Ms Wheeler said as far as she knew, one of the previous owners used it to help rehabilitate cats as part of pet rescues.

“It’s actually under contract at the moment. We had six contracts last week, and quite a few investors as well. Two were under $100,000, and of the other four the highest was $368,000. It’s the first week back after Christmas holidays and a good sign for the start of the year.”

If you don’t want a sourpuss at home, another property in the capital is on the market for $359,000 and the owners have turned the entire side into cat heaven.

44/30 Federation Street, Wynnum West, even has netting on the top to keep birds out of the cats way.

The three bedroom townhouse at 44/30 Federation Street, Wynnum West, has a “body corporate-approved external cat enclosure with lockable gates at either end, and lockable internal pet door”, was how it was marketed.

Rental return was sitting at $390 to $420 a week and the property was five minutes from the waterfront.

“Appealing to first home buyers, young families, downsizers, professionals and savvy investors seeking a rewarding portfolio addition, this property presents an outstanding opportunity for any buyer seeking to take advantage of the affordable market,” the listing said.
