Catio Showcase

April 14th, 2011 Cat Cottage Senior Sanctuary in Pasadena

The Cat Cottage Senior Sanctuary is a special little hideaway in Pasadena, CA built just for senior and special needs kitties. These lucky kitties have a wonderful catio so they can safely enjoy the beautiful Southern California weather in their golden years.

The structure itself was originally a prefab TuffShed barn, with a vaulted ceiling and a loft. They were able to customize it with windows and a skylight to give the kitties lots of natural light inside. They had power lines run underground for electricity, then added insulation, drywall, window trim, paint, a dimmable chandelier, handmade kitty stairway to the loft, and an air conditioner as well as a small catio. It’s a small space, but with so much vertical room, plus the catio, it’s fine for elderly cats who spend most of the day following the sun from one nap spot to another!

The Cat Cottage is not accepting any new residents at this time, but you can follow them on Facebook to see the beautiful senior cats in their care, as well as listings for senior cats that are available for adoption. Next time you’re thinking of adding another furry family member, please consider adopting a senior cat!
