Catio Showcase

January 24th, 2011 All About Animals’ Amazing Catio Keeps Kitties Happy in Arizona

This big beautiful catio provides kitties from All About Animals Rescue in Phoenix, Arizona with a temporary home while they wait to be adopted. All About Animals Rescue was founded in 2010 by Dawn Kavanaugh, who really knows cats. She and her husband added this catio onto their home for their own cats, plus it allows them to rescue countless cats off the euthanasia list from local animal control agencies. Dawn and her team of volunteers run adoption events every week at local pet supply stores and each week dozens of happy cats go home with loving new owners.

The spacious catio is filled with cat-friendly accommodations from top to bottom. Outdoor furniture, climbing shelves, and scratching towers give all the kitties plenty of room to hang out and enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather. The little gray kitten above is enjoying a new Sleek Lounge from Brawny Cat.

Some volunteers helped Dawn epoxy the floors, which gives them a terrific looking finish and makes them really easy to clean. This is a great option for catio flooring.

    It warms my heart to see this. I wish I had the space and resources to do the same! Bravo!

    This is such a marvellous place for the cats/kittens to bask in the sunshine and just enjoy life after being saved from all manners of unsafe conditions and being strays. If I had the resources I would love to have a bungalow with a huge terrarium/sunporch where the animals could have both heat and/or coolness in summer but fresh air at all times. That’s my wish one day…….

    We are a small Shelter in the final stages of completion located in Lebec, California. I will run the Cattery. What you have created
    seems to be the wave of the future and a good furture for all the felines. Perhaps we could talk about your facility on my next visit
    to your fair City?
