Sherman Oaks (Between Moorpark & Riverside)
Built around an existing porch, this huge catio has plenty of room for both cats and humans to enjoy the gardens, birds and other small wildlife. Lots of shelf space throughout lead to three high perches including a great spot over the door. There’s also a floor to ceiling sisal rope climbing pole in the corner. Luxurious!
City of San Fernando
Another house with the perfect nook or spot for an enclosure. The 10 foot high by 4 foot wide covered structure provides plenty of space for a couple of deluxe cat trees. A custom cat door is being constructed for the far right window.
This 10 foot high six level enclosure fits perfectly on the side of the house between two windows with an extension for the cat door below the bathroom windows. The sisal rope climbing pole sits on top of the litter box cover. The pet door has a platform that connects to the shelf system via a long carpeted ramp. Pretty cool!
Pictures do not do this catio justice. Suffice to say, it is pawesome. The stained redwood enclosure sits beautifully on top of a painted wood deck. But the highlight is the stunning nest (sun room) attached to the enclosure via a long skyway.
We always encourage clients to make each catio their own. Here, a celebrity client did just that by adding cool lighting. Also check out the floor to ceiling sisal rope scratching / climbing pole that gives the cats the option of jumping off at five different levels!
North Hollywood Porch
This was a cool little project that required our team to match the front patio design. We also changed it up by putting the silver wire mesh on the inside of the structure so that the white wood frame continued to pop from the street.
Mount Washington Balcony
The third Mount Washington catio was built off a balcony and comes with a spectacular view. A bit smaller than the others, we still included a large carpeted “L” shaped shelf, among others, a long sisal rope climbing pole, and a cat and human door.
Mount Washington 1 & 2
This was a monster project where we built three catios at one home over a week for an amazing cat rescuer. You can also check out a time-lapse video of our team constructing the enclosures. These catios have everything including a new and improved easy access litter box door.
Another catio that blends in perfectly with the house. All the shelves are carpeted, including a long run at the top of the structure. There’s also carpeting on the bottom of the structure which acts as a cushion for a special needs cat. The floor to ceiling sisal rope pole is a huge hit with most of the cats putting it to immediate use.
This was a fun one that included all the bells and whistles. The concrete slab adds stability, makes it easier to clean, and prevents animals from digging underneath the mesh. The bronze polygal roof keeps out the rain and provides shade from the hot summer sun. The cat door is met with a horizontal shelf to make coming and going easy on the cats. The rest of the structure is decked out with a 9′ sisal rope pole, ramps, and shelves.
Simi Valley #2
With all the coyotes in Simi Valley it’s no surprise we get a lot of calls from concerned cat parents wanting to build safe enclosures for their furballs. This home, like the San Fernando Valley model below, had the perfect spot for a catio which enabled us to keep costs way down.
Palos Verdes Estates
This massive enclosure was built to house a family of somewhat feral cats rescued about a year ago. With a threat of foxes, raccoons, and coyotes, we used a strong silver mesh to keep the cats in and the predators out. We also had a custom cat door built for a French door.
This large enclosure meshes perfectly with the house and provides the five formerly outdoor cats with a breathtaking view. Because it’s a rental property, we used minimally invasive hardware which can be patched easily should the structure be removed at a later date. Note the Endura Flap window cat door which was installed without tools and can also be removed easily.
Our third Orange County enclosure was built for the three adorable cats seen below exploring their new outdoor digs immediately after completion. Like San Dimas, this is an “L” shaped catio that wraps around the house. We kept it thin and concentrated on vertical space, of which there is plenty.
Santa Monica Apartment
After Lando (pictured) survived an eight story fall into some bushes, his cat daddy called us to install a balcony enclosure. Yes, cats do fall from ledges and balconies. We were able to complete the project without screwing anything into the walls, floor, or ceiling, per the building rules. Now Lando and his running mate, Luke, will have access to fresh air, the ocean breeze, and an outdoor litter box despite living well above the palm trees.
