Catio Showcase

July 11th, 2010 Lynn’s Lovely Deck Catio

Nevins1

Lynn had this lovely catio added on to her home in New York. She hired a handyman to build the structure on top of the existing deck using wood to match. The entire structure is enclosed with wire mesh that almost disappears. There’s a door with a latch so people can get out into the yard, as long as they remember to close the door behind them.

Great job, Lynn! The cats sure do seem to be enjoying it.

    I like the wire mesh much better than the coated wire I used on mine. Much more invisible.

    This is very nice and I like the screen/door idea very much. Happy cats here, no doubt about it!

    just add a spring to the door, like:

    and a latch that automatically locks when the door shuts:
