Why not give your cat the same experience by building him a relaxation temple? It’s called a “catio,” which translates to, “patio for cats”.  Explore your design prowess to give that kitty in your life the ultimate outdoor space. The sky’s the limit for this catio project; big or small, your cat will be grateful for this wonderful spot (although he’ll likely never show it).

Catios are gaining in popularity thanks to Catio Spaces, a company that sells DIY Catio plans that are easy to follow. The company offers four different concepts, which range in price from $40 to $70. Choose the size of your catio (Window Box, Haven, Sanctuary or Oasis) then download a pdf file with step-by-step instructions.  You can also sign up to receive free catio tips!

Even better – 10%of profits are donated to animal welfare organizations.
