Catios

A catio is an enclosed patio designed especially for cats. Cats who roam freely outside generally have shorter lives than cats who remain indoors. A catio provides a fully protected outdoor environment for otherwise indoor cats.


This section showcases the many fabulous catios that people have created for their beloved cats in order to inspire you to create your own. We also feature products that can help you easily create an outdoor space for your cats without extensive construction.


Do you have a catio? Please submit your photos and we might share them!
