2

Protect Your Cats!


Disease, poisoning, parasites, predators, and cars all conspire against outdoor cats to knock years off their lives. Catio cats do not face those dangers or the abuse, fighting, and theft that also plague roaming cats.

3

Protect The Environment


Outdoor cats kill more than 8 billion birds and small animals annually. In fact, domestic cats are listed among the 100 worst invasive species on the planet. Environmentalists do not allow cats outdoors!

4

Extend Your Cat's Life


The average lifespan of a domestic indoor cat is 17 years while an outdoor cat statistically lives less than 5 years. Cat parents hold the power to extend the lives of their furry loved ones.

5

Outdoor Litter Box


Moving the litter box outside removes the unpleasant smell and dust that often permeate feline homes and sticks to clothes.

6

Cat Stimulation


Outdoor activity, including wildlife, bugs, sounds, and smells, keep cats stimulated throughout the day and night. As such, catio cats rely less on humans for stimulation (playtime) than purely indoor cats.

7

Increased Happiness


Whether it is listening to the world wakeup at sunrise, basking in the warm summer sun, or living true to their nocturnal instincts, catio cats are happy cats.

8

Cat Camaraderie


Multi-level vertical space is critical to cat harmony due to their hierarchical nature.

9

Improve Your Sleep


Cats are nocturnal which negatively impacts human parent sleep. Catio cats will generally spend part of the night outside before returning for morning snuggles.

10

Great Conversation


Whether you have guests over to the house or are at a dinner party, people are fascinated by catios.

Veterinarian Recommended


The American Association of Feline Practitioners, which sets the standards for feline care, strongly advocates for catios: "Whenever possible, an outdoor enclosure is preferred" to allowing cats to roam freely or live in solely indoor environments.
