Mr. Grey's Glassell Park stained deck enclosure is as gorgeous as the views. A long cat walk runs between the catio tower and the uniquely placed cat door above the kitchen counter. Sometimes we do have to get creative to find a place to get the cats in and out of the house. Finally, check out the new "floating steps" designed and constructed by The Artist!
Angeles Crest HWY
The Angeles Crest HWY catio perfectly pairs a gorgeous exterior with beautiful interior furnishings. Located in La Canada Flintridge, the shared cat / hooman space is a wonderful example of how feline family members and their guardians can experience the joy of the outdoors together.
That's Twix climbing the synthetic rope pole in the middle photo with Hershey on the ground. These two furballs get to explore their Castaic (just beyond Valencia and Magic Mountain) catio tower with an additional large natural enclosure in the back daily. It's fully equipped with a nest, litter box compartment, and peek-a-boo bubble bed among other features.
The huge gorgeous Hyde Park (South LA) catio is home to Fandral, Anduin, Chromie, and Kiara! The structure was built in alignment with the deck so that it blends in perfectly. The roof is half hard and half mesh to protect against the rain but also let in the sunshine. Note the double human door for extra security against door dashers.
Grandview Park - Palos Verdes Estates
Warren and Winston love their Grandview Park (Palos Verdes Estates) catio. Tucked into a corner of the house, the cats have extraordinary views of a beautiful garden and all the goodness -- smells, bugs, birds, squirrels, sounds - that it provides. In other words, lots of stimulation.
The Elysian Heights catio is unique in that it was built for a rental property while the cat guardians renovate their home. As such, we were able to bring down costs by not painting or staining the redwood and going with a plywood roof. We also did not screw into the stone floor and got most of the support from the house eve rather than the stucco walls. That's August in the photos!
Jungle Catio Ladder and Steps Addition
We added a ladder and steps to the far side of the amazing multi-level Jungle Catio in the Pacific Palisades.
Sherman Oaks Screened In Porch
Insects - especially the Aedes ankle biter mosquitos - have become such a local nuisance that Angelenos are regularly requesting screened in patios and catios. When the people speak, we listen. Here are the results of our first ever screened in patio using cat proof screens.
Sherman Oaks Galleria
The homeowners purchased this property, in part, because it had the perfect area for a large cat enclosure. With three existing walls, we added the outer mesh wall, a door, and the bronze transparent hard roof. The cat guardians plan to add more cat trees and cat condos to give the feline family members plenty of perch areas.
Manhattan Beach Balcony
This awesome second floor balcony catio was built on behalf of a large cat family that includes two Savannah's named Enzo and Ru. The clear transparent roof keeps the rain out but allows the sunlight to hit the bedroom. The furballs love the fabulous views, fresh air, sunshine, and climbing pole.
The Winnetka catio connects two rooms in the home -- living room and bedroom - via the enclosure. The main enclosure with a long ramp, cat ladder, sisal rope climbing pole, and litter box area, sits in a covered patio off the house. It connects to a large nest which provides more sun and better views for the kittens. Also, how cool is the color?
This Rancho Cucamonga house was built for a catio. With three walls already existing, we just added a fourth wire mesh wall, a clear translucent roof, a door, and a handful of shelves. The gorgeous enclosure blends in perfectly with the home and the surrounding area.
Handsome Henry, a gorgeous Savannah cat, loves his new Westchester catio. He loves being up high, climbing the 10-foot synthetic rope pole, peek-a-boo bubble bed, and taking in the outdoor sounds and smells.
Highland Park Tree House
Wowza! The Highland Park catio starts with a super long run along the side of the house which leads to an extra large Disneyland-esque enclosure. The inside is decked out with ramps to help the family tripod navigate the catio. The final amazing element is a gorgeous tree house connected to the main structure by a stunning bridge. Very happy cats!
Custom Catios designed and built the new CatCafe Lounge catio (see video, click into post first). The CatCafe Lounge, which is the only non-profit cat cafe in LA, has found homes for 400+ cats to date. You can now reserve time to hang out with these amazing kitties in the outdoor, socially distant, regularly sanitized, CatCafe Lounge catio on their website. Playing safely with tens of fluffy furballs in a fantabulous enclosure is the anecdote to these troubling times!
