You can create a catio, or outdoor cat enclosure, by modifying an existing part of your home, like Sophia did with this landing on her house in the Cayman Islands. What a time Sophia’s cats must have watching the exotic wildlife from this luxurious look out! Here’s what Sophia says about her Caribbean catio:
“I turned a small outdoor landing into a luxurious “catio” that allows my 5 cats the freedom to move in and out of my home as they please. The enclosure is completely screened in using pet grade screening and the roof is insulated and has a ceiling fan for those warm Caribbean days and the pebble tiles are non-skid and easy to maintain and clean. Several cat trees and condos are available for my cat’s entertainment and lounging. Their special space looks out over the pool and gardens of my property and my cats can enjoy watching the wild iguanas and chickens that frequently trespass!!!”

Kate’s design expertise and Jackson’s cat behavior know-how combine to create cat-friendly environments that are sure to please both human and feline family members alike.
We regret that Jackson does not answer questions posted in the comments. This is due to his demanding schedule and the high volume of requests he receives. But most importantly, since he has not met your cat, it would be contrary to his approach for him to give specific personalized advice for your specific situation. That being said, general questions and issues are addressed throughout this blog, in his book CAT DADDY and of course, the show My Cat From Hell.
