Louie and Sampson, two Maine Coon rescues, escaped out a window and were found gallivanting in the backyard when their human came home. The two rascals now enjoy fresh air and birdwatching from the safety of a garden catio while their human enjoys peace of mind knowing they are safe from harm. If you are thinking of building catio for feline safety and enrichment, consider a DIY Catio Plan by Catio Spaces in a variety of designs and sizes.

The patio for cats, aka the catio, is all the craze. Boredom can get the best of any animal, and the refined feline is no different. Indoor kitties get bored, and they need sun and fresh air as much as any living creature.
Although fresh air and sunshine are ideal, allowing a cat to be outdoor full-time has its hazards, even fatal hazards.
An outdoor cat enclosure is a great option for indoor/outdoor cats. There are all types of portable catios to choose from.
