Former cat Chester got into all kinds of trouble outdoors so when three kittens were adopted, they were kept indoors until the backyard deck was transformed into a catio. The kittens now enjoy life in a catio with their cat mom and family dog, too!

Founder Cynthia Chomos, a catio designer and general contractor, started Catio Spaces out of a desire to keep her cat safe, healthy and happy outdoors while protecting birds and wildlife.

  1. Luv the last scene! The cat looks a lot like my baby boy Ginger, even down to the facial expressions πŸ˜€. A catio is def on my wish list for my future retirement home. Thank you!

  2. This is truely a revolution in how cats can exist in and outdoors without
    being exposed to the dangers of roaming. You see more and more
    videos of catios and enclosures, many amazingly elaborate. All to
    the absolute benefit of the cats but also to the joy of the owners
    and safety of the animals who live nearby. I have several friends
    planning to build catios, what a great thing!
