Despite being done on a limited budget we were able to include a number of cool features. First, we kept it thin so that there is room to walk around the enclosure to the backyard. There's also an emergency exit door instead of a regular door. The inside includes a super long run across the top fitted perfectly around a sisal rope climbing pole. And the internal camera to watch the kitties is a nice touch!
Occasionally we find a house with the perfect catio spot already built in as in this case. We merely had to build a mesh wall with a door, and add a ramp, a couple of shelves, and a sisal rope climbing pole. Gheera and the cat posse are blissed out!
Hawkeye, perhaps the luckiest cat on the planet, enters his new catio through a cat door high upon a bedroom wall. From there he zigs and zags his way through a long cat run under the roof eve which deposits him into a marvelous enclosure that includes an extra long L ramp connecting the top and bottom as well as our first ever cat steps!
Clyde (orange tabby) and Chloe's captivating Lafayette Square (Mid City) catio has some cool features and is extremely detailed. Note how the bronze translucent roof is a perfect height and pitch match for the awnings on either side of the enclosure. The cat door is custom installed in a small closet window which enters at the catio's highest point. Two very happy cats!
Stormy is modeling in front of the through-the-wall custom cat door while his siblings hide from the Catio Guy inside. This Hawthorne enclosure is extra wide, providing a lot of interior space and extra room for a pair of litter boxes. Built off a small one bedroom, it was important to give the cats plenty of extra space and high bed perches.
Dani and Bella Thorne
Welcome to cat wonderland! Built on behalf of celebrity sisters, Dani and Bella Thorne, this enclosure is beyond amazing with 5 cat ladders, 2 floating beds, a hiding box with cat cutouts, a super long ramp, and a 10-foot sisal rope climbing pole -- together creating a massive cat superhighway. Pawsome!
Franklin Hills Catio The spectacular Franklin Canyon catio has a super long "Z" run at the top that connects two bedrooms in the house. Built upon a concrete slab, the enclosure and the cat run both blend in perfectly with the home. The kittens George and Mary could not be happier! Video of the Z run in action:
This Silver Triangle (Studio City) cat patio perfectly maintains the lines of the home. Built over a garden planter, the job required endless customization. My favorite part, however, is the "bunk bed" at the top. The cats are going to love their new outdoor enclosure!
Sherman Village catio keeps the lines of the house and colors to perfectly blend in with the gorgeous home. The enclosure will also keep the cats - Hugo and Sydney - stimulated with a sisal rope climbing / scratching pole, long run, and cat ladder. There's also a litter box door for easy daily cleaning.
Cal Heights (Long Beach)
Cal Heights is essentially two catios connected by a long run and cat ladder. It starts to the right with a standard enclosure with steps leading up to the cat ladder / tunnel which then makes it way along the side of the house before depositing the felines in the nest / sun room. So cool!
A custom made cat door in a French door pane provides the entrance to the catio. The gatos exit onto a shelf where the felines can take a ramp down to the litter box or step shelves up to shaped bed areas at the top. The sisal rope climbing / scratching pole on the left side of the enclosure is a nice match for the house.
Check out the killer matching shingle roof on this beautiful Sun Valley catio. The inside of the enclosure is equally impressive with a carpeted ramp / shelf system (cat superhighway) connecting the ground to the highest accessible point to accommodate a less mobile elderly cat.
While the final catio looks like a perfect fit for the backyard corner of a house bordering Silver Lake, Los Feliz, and East Hollywood, it took a ton of customization. We had to work around a hot water heater, dryer fan, and crawl space entrance. Alas, the cats are more concerned with getting fresh air, sunshine, and making the most of the seven level enclosure.
Can there be too much goodness? The Reseda catio has a nest on top of the roof by way of the chimney so the cats can sit in the sun as long as their heart's desire. Inside we debut a 10 foot long cat ladder working its way from the brick pavers to the top shelves. The cats enter from an internal walkway at the highest point inside the main enclosure. Finally, that's Angus below right enjoying the floor to ceiling sisal rope climbing pole.
A breathtaking catio / home combo! With a beautiful garden that attracts birds, the clients felt more comfortable with the smaller 1" black mesh. The sisal rope pole sits on top of the litter box cover which is accessed by a long gray carpeted ramp. The inside photo of Mulcifer also shows off the cat door and precision shelving, including the shaped bed area at the top.
