Tile Board for boys rooms, I used it on the bottom half of the wall. It comes in 4 x 8 sheets like paneling

Plexiglass This would be used on the inside of a cattery house if you had runs on the outside. It cleans well and the cats can see you when you are inside as well as you being able to see them.

Grape lugs

 
Use as litter boxes that are strong, sturdy, and stain resistent and can not be tipped by large cats or those who like to "perch and pee". Kelly of Wyldthingz Savannahs
Plastic Aquarium Tubing A nice finishing touch to cushion the edges of openings cut in storage container beds. Just measure to diameter of opening, slit lengthwise and waterproof glue in place.  Pat Johansmeyer
RUBBER MAID STORAGE CONTAINERS I USE THESE CONTAINERS FOR THE GIRLS TO HAVE THEIR BABIES IN. I CUT A HOLE IN THE SIDE SO MOM CAN ENTER I CAN ALWAYS LIFT THE COVER TO CHECK ON MOM AND THE BABIES, ITS EASY CLEANING AND MOM FEELS SAFE ITS DARK AND WARM CONTAINER. ITS EASY TO CLEAN AFTER EACH LITTER. TARGET SELLS THE 65 GALLON ONE IS PERFECT .

Marshalls small animal playpen While kittens are litter training, this portable, easily cleaned play area can be set up anywhere in the house. It stores compact when not in use. 

Jeni O'Bryon

Vinyl Vertical Blinds Cut without bottom chains, these are perfect for any room used by cats. Vanes move out of the way if the cats want to access the window and then swing back into place. The vanes are easy to remove for cleaning.

poultry waterers Keeps their feet out of the water and keeps the water fresher. Marilyn McCorkindale
piglet feeders  You put the feed in through the top so they only have a small opening to eat from. Keeps paws out of the feed and prevents kittens using feeders as a litter box Marilyn McCorkindale
Hard Plastic Children's Wading Pools to provide easy-to-clean, portable play and sleep area for young kittens. I use two sizes one for kittens from two to four weeks and a larger pool with higher sides for kittens from four to six weeks old (approximately 6' across/2'deep). Before litter box training is mastered, kittens tend to urinated around the edges of the pool where it is easily wiped up. The 6' size allows plenty of room for running and play, beds, play tents, scratching post, litter box, and feeding dishes, yet can be turned on its side and moved from room to room. Susan Reid
