You may or may not have read the New York Times article about Catios, entitled, “‘Catios’ Bring Cats Outdoors”. It talks about creating an outdoor space that allows your kitty to be outdoors, but also allows them to be safe.
So in other words, it’s a patio for a cat or a Cat-io. The catio involves a screened in porch or deck.
Cat owners have come up with some very creative ways to let their kitties enjoy the great outdoors, but at the same time allows them to be safe and protected.
Kate Benjamin, who we know from Hauspanther and her book with Jackson Galaxy, Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!), also has a website about Catios, which you might want to check out to see more of how you might be able to set up a catio for your kitty. Kate’s catio is the one pictured in this blog post.
