Many cat owners want their cats to enjoy the outdoors but fear for their safety from cars, animals, and malicious humans. One solution is to walk and supervise your cat personally, but that can be time-consuming, so another solution is to build your cat a catio.
A catio is a special patio designed to allow indoor cats to roam outside without attacking wildlife or getting hurt by cars. The simplest catio can be a box that allows a cat to go outside in an enclosed area, but the more elaborate catios can offer multiple walkways and balconies along with tunnels and litter boxes.
By letting your cat explore the outdoors within the safety and protection of a catio, owners can give their cats mental stimulation secure that their felines will be safe in the process.
