Karen C\'s Catio Project in Oregon

This catio was created for Blue and Bessie at their home in Oregon. The 8′ x 5′ structure is framed in cedar and covered with heavy-gauge vinyl coated wire mesh. A cat door into the house makes for easy access 24/7, which allows Blue and Bessie to bring in lots of little creatures as gifts for their people. Read more about this project here.

    Very nice! Almost any property and any budget can be made to accomodate a catio.

    what I love about this is it’s an “everyman” catio….something that people can look at and say, hey I could do that. and the cats are obvioulsy happy

    The plant that the pretty blue cat is looking at appears to be a Sego Palm,this is one of the most poisionous plants for Cats and Dogs, extremely lethal………..beware!!!

    Merrily, I removed the Sego Palm ASAP. And will submit more pix soon. Added wire fencing at the bottom to stop small creatures from getting into the Catio. Most people can build Catio’s as big or as small as they can afford and have room for. All cats love Catio’s, they are kept safe plus birds are safe from the cats. Plan to expand the area soon.
