Catios (Cat Patios) You Have To See To Believe.

Why can doggies roam free outside while kitties have to stay locked up?

Well, for starters, dogs can rely on their sense of smell to find their way home if they get lost. Whereas cats can get lost chasing after a bird. All it takes is a big noise or a strange smell for a kitty to run for the hill, only to never hear back from them. Cat enclosures are typically designed to reduce cat fights, protect wildlife and birds, and even helps you stay on your neighbor’s good side as your kitties won’t be running around their backyards.

This impressive catio is built around the house. It must've taken a bit of planning, but it's 100% worth it if you ask this cat!

Some cat owners are afraid to build an impressive outdoor unit like this one as they fear their cats wouldn't even use it. But as you can see, not only are they 100% aboard the "catio" train, they also love to lounge around and a take a little nap when they're done playing. Awww!

This beautiful fresh and green garden looks like the perfect spot to curl up with a good book after work.

But it’s actually a stunning patio that was designed for kitties to happily play outside. Cat owners are willing to go above and beyond to keep their furry friends happy, and it shows! Honestly? We’re kind of jelly!

This beautiful catio is the second one this family has built.

It’s completely decked out and packed with sky boxes, a center cat tree, and a hanging bridge. These furry babies have comfortably parked their butts around their favorite spots in the catio. Clearly, it’s 100% kitty-approved!

Cat patios, better known as “catios” are all about safe outdoor fun. But even if these elaborate enclosures are sealed tight, they come with lots of hidden benefits.

Catios protect pets from predators, diseases, and unnecessary vet bills, (which you’re probably familiar with if you have a territorial cat who likes to get into a fight or two every now and then!) Plus, they provide extra stimuli as it allows cats to have a healthy outdoor lifestyle, get plenty of exercise and fresh air in a protected environment.
