Default 300b tube cage

does anyone have a suggestion on what to use to cage a 300b tube to keep the cat out? The more visually attractive the better.

Sorry about digging up an old thread.

I've got a Jolida amp that I'd like to put a cage on (2 year old in the house), but I like the look of the tubes. Most cages cover them up so much. I don't like the look of the acrylic much, and wouldn't it get really hot? I have no sheet metal working experience, but I will try anything. Where can I get the materials? The link above doesn't work.

I like the "screen" look that guys use for their headphones, but I don't know if it has enough structural stability to work:

Try onlinemetals for perforated aluminum sheet stock. I don't have any suggestions on where to get wire mesh unfortunately.
