I just wanted to share the outdoor enclosure my husband and I made for our cats. Lamar is our tripod and he loves it out there. We recently added a tunnel that leads to a “cat dome” that we got from a neighbor. It looks like one of those half-sphere jungle gyms covered with wire mesh. Our yard is starting to look a bit like a giant Habitrail for cats. laughing

Oh I LOVE this! What a total kitty castle, you guys went all out. I love the natural materials and thoughtful recycling included inside. I hope lots of kitty parents see it and learn that a catio is a wonderful way to keep kitties safe. 

Thank you so much for sharing the article with us, what lucky cats!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Your catio is so natural and it looks like the cats enjoy it. You could even camp out there overnight. Do you have a litter box in there for them?

Looks like fun for everyone. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the responses! The cats do love it out there and I love knowing they’re safe. 

There’s no litter box in the catio. We have plenty inside and they don’t seem to “take care of business” out there. I guess because it’s a hang out spot.
