Long Beach Kittens Addition
A year ago we built an amazing catio, run, and nest for a feral mother cat named Mama on behalf of a kindhearted couple who had rescued her kittens. Now we added a 3-part addition for the kittens which includes a catio tower, run, and nest on the other side of the house. The best part is that the two sets of enclosures meet in the middle where we installed two dividers -- one mesh and one plywood. The concept is that the cats can be completely separated, separated only by mesh, or left open creating a ginormous 6-prong catio…
South Pasadena Dog Run
The South Pasadena dog run (aka dogio) is located in a highly trafficked coyote area in the hills. With limited space this is primarily a safe bathroom area though Riley could also use it to get a bit of sun and fresh air when his parents are away. Each of the three sections has a door on top for easy pooper scooper cleaning. Note the gas strut support hinges on the doors which makes lifting them easy peasy.
The North Glendale catio is simply beautiful. Coupling a gorgeous wood stain with an exquisite client provided centerpiece makes the enclosure feel like an art piece. The gatos, who enter through a custom window pane cat door, are going to love it too considering the 5 levels of shelves and the sisal rope climbing pole.
The fantabulous Mount Washington catio has a huge base enclosure and a long run along the side of the house leading to an amazing nest with breathtaking views of the valley below. Bird feeders and a water fountain attract endless wildlife who parade around for the pure enjoyment of Cooper Kitten LA and his sibling Fizz. Added bonus: When Cooper and Fizz are in the nest they can hang out with their cat parents lounging on the patio deck. Everyone wins!
The huge wraparound La Verne catio is as beautiful as the the snow capped mountains on the horizon. Coupled with brand new gardens, a bird feeder, and a hummingbird feeder, and Sisco (think Star Trek) is one happy camper. The enclosure is loaded with ramps, cat steps, a sisal rope climbing / scratching pole, litter box area, cat ladders, and a cat superhighway around the top.
This catio is located in Orange in the heart of Orange County. Fully loaded with all the extras - cat steps, long ramp, floating bed, hiding box with cat cutouts, etc - this large enclosure also blends in perfectly with the house and pergola. The cats and hooman are very happy!
The Los Altos catio is located between Los Alamitos and Signal Hill. Built on behalf of an amazing cat named Tommy, the main enclosure surrounds an outdoor fireplace which allows the humans to hangout with the furry feline. When Tommy wants some alone time, however, there's a nearly 20 foot long cat run that provides amazing views of the backyard garden, trees, and visiting animals.
The Torrance catio is super tall standing nearly 15 feet high. Yes, the feline family members love the extra vertical space. The cat door is under the window just short of halfway up. And the inside is completely decked out with an awesome cat ladder system at the bottom, a hiding box with cat cutouts, and sisal rope climbing pole, among other features.
This Wildasin catio fit perfectly into an unused space in the backyard. We did have to create a cool little button on the side of the enclosure to incorporate the cat door. The cats could not be happier. Speaking of which, you can follow the exploits of Bagheera, Miles, and Wingdings on Instagram.
The Woodland Hills Catio Castle is an enormous 400+ square foot cat paradise (see video). The palatial feline estate includes a 20 foot carpeted ramp, 2 ten foot sisal rope climbing poles, and an incredible centerpiece that includes two hiding spots with cat cutouts surrounded by 4 floating beds. Not to mention all the cat ladders, shelves, and bridges that circumvent the massive structure. It's truly breathtaking in person!
Sherman Oaks Hospital
This home near the Sherman Oaks Hospital had the perfect spot for a catio. The enclosure is covered but still provides plenty of sun for the family's two cats. You have to love the cat superhighway that is, well, super high above the sliding glass doors. Throw in a couple carpeted ramps, a sisal rope climbing pole, and a handful of shelves, and the cat house will provide plenty of stimulation for the felines.
Orange Tree House
The Orange Tree House catio is a masterpiece (see amazing video - must click into post first). The enclosure reaches more than 20 feet up into a gorgeous hundred-year-old tree. The Sherman Oaks enclosure gives Hannah, Trudy, Dottie (in photo), and Harlow plenty of platforms to navigate to via the tree trunk to watch the endless visiting squirrels and birds at close range. There's also a 45+ foot run that allows the cats and kittens to access the structure 24/7 from the house. Finally, note the sandbox / litter box in the middle of the run. AWESOME!
This spacious Thousand Oaks (Kevington) catio was built for two of the cutest tiny kittens -- Jean Francois and Babette -- to walk the Conejo Valley in a long time. The lucky felines will get to grow into the large enclosure which includes a cat superhighway, a couple of long carpeted ramps, a sisal rope climbing pole, a cat ladder and plenty of bed perches to watch the birds, squirrels, insects, and other wildlife.
Los Encinos State Historic Park
Charlie's Encino catio has it all. The enclosure blends in perfectly with the house and the surrounding greenery. Check out the tree just inches away! The cat door is custom made to fit in a large French door pane. We built the structure around an existing bell which doubles as a step from one bed perch to another. There's also an awesome cat ladder and ramp. We added two small square doors for access since a full size door would not fit with the tree. Finally, we built the entire catio over a dirt area using a plywood board, thus…
We love creating catios for famous cats like Vincent the Lykoi and friends. This was a highly technical build that required our team to work around a curved corner and a couple of existing pergolas. We also filled in a dirt area with concrete and used 1" black wire mesh. Inside the enclosure we included many high bed perches for the extended feline family, a cat superhighway, a cat ladder, ramps, and a sisal rope climbing pole that was a hit from the start.
