The Secret to Successful Catio Designs

You may be wondering what the heck Catio Designs are..

A Catio is the new and politically correct name for outdoor cat enclosures, cat houses, outside cat houses or cat cages.

The name catio is a hybrid of cat and patio (pronounced cat-io)

If you own an indoor cat and are experiencing some cat behaviour issues, maybe it's time to plan your next cat enclosure DIY!

Building your own catio is a lot less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated or custom enclosure. In fact costs can be as low as a couple of hundred dollars and result in a cat condo your felines will adore!

How to get started with your Cat enclosure DIY?

The first thing you will need are some good outdoor cat enclosure plans or catio designs

You will need to decide whether you would like a free standing cat enclosure in your yard or perhaps an attached outdoor cat enclosure fully equipped with a cat panel for fast feline access..

If you are an urban dweller you might consider a window cat enclosure or simply cat proofing your balcony.

Whatever you decide it is sure to bring your cat great pleasure and fun! So what are you waiting for? Your catio designs can be the cat's meow :)
