Catification: Wraparound Catio

Sarah from Satellite Beach, Florida added on to her house this spacious catio that wraps around one corner of the garage. The structure is built on a concrete slab with two-by-four supports that are anchored into the concrete. Chicken wire and plastic roofing make the catio escape-proof. The cats have plenty of shelves at different heights for climbing and perching. There is a cat door leading from the house to the garage and another leading out to the catio. Sarah says that all the cats love to sunbathe on their catio, getting some fresh air, while staying safe and sound.
