DIY CATIO PLANS - this lady is a genius + even has DIY plans! Even if your neighborhood allows cats outdoors (many do not) we were turned down several shelters b/c we allow our cat outdoors even tho we watched him in the yard they said that's a no no nowadays b/c outdoor cats live less longs than indoor cats. I think cats clearly want to be outside so maybe if they live longer indoors but miserably that's bad. Great compromise b/c no fights + stops killing wildlife
I built an outdoor cat enclosure after one of my cats was diagnosed with gallstones. They were indoor-outdoor cats for a few years, but I had long wanted to build them something like this that keeps them closer to home and allows them to enjoy the fresh air and sun. I think next Spring I may plant around it to give them a little extra interest.
