If you’re a pet owner you’d likely do anything for them. Which is why some brilliant person came up with the ‘Catio’ which is the new outdoor space for cats and owners just can’t get enough!
A ‘Catio’ is a cat patio – catchy, right?
According to the site:
A catio is a cat enclosure or “cat patio” that provides feline safety and enrichment outdoors. Whether you have an indoor or outdoor cat, a catio can be the purrfect solution while you enjoy peace of mind knowing your cat is always safe. There are many benefits of catios including protecting birds and wildlife too.
It gives your cat a safe and covered patio space they can lounge and do whatever cats do. Probably nap. A lot.
“Cats naturally want to be outside where they can breathe fresh air and experience the sights, sounds and stimulation of the natural world. A catio, an outdoor cat enclosure or “cat patio,” is the purrfect solution to solve the indoor/outdoor dilemma and keep your cat safe, healthy and happy.”Cynthia Chomos founder Catio Spaces
Prices vary depending on if you want just the bluprints to DIY or have someone build one for you.
You can either build them yourselves or have someone from Catio Spaces design and build one for you. Plans to DIY will only run you $40-70 plus materials while contracting it out can be upwards of $4000.
If you think your cat has been good enough to get one, it might be worthwhile building it your own. I mean, your cat would never want to leave you after that!
