The BC SPCA has created a self-guided tour on June 9, 2019 to show off catios of all shapes and sizes in the Vancouver area.
Catios are outdoor cat enclosures that allow domestic cats to lounge and enjoy the stimuli of nature while protecting them from danger (and other wildlife from the dangers cats pose). They’re typically made with wire fencing or mesh so cats can enjoy weather and feel like they’re outside. They often also have multiple layers and toys so cats can play, relax, and act naturally. Whether built to attach as a small window attachment or a larger free-standing structure, catios are a wonderful solution to ensuring our furry family members can be fulfilled and safe for everyone.
The BC SPCA tour is self-guided, so you can start your day where you want and plan your route accordingly. If you’re interested in signing up please visit www.spca.bc.ca/catio. And be sure to share your favourite catio photos with us!
