Catio: A Patio For Cats

I recently went on a catio tour and had a chance to see a bunch of catios that people have built in their yards. It was amazing! The catios ranged from basic to super elaborate and everything in between. You can design and build one yourself or you can hire someone to make it for you. If you are interested in creating your own catio, start by looking at examples online (Pinterest has tons of pictures and ideas).

A catio gives your cat the opportunity to have her own enclosed outdoor space. It has all the perks of being outside but also has the safety of staying indoors.

These are some of the catios that I toured:

You can buy kits online that make it easy to setup a catio. I haven’t tried these but here are some examples:
