It's no secret that pet owners will do everything they can to please their animals. But it must be admitted that the "catio" takes animal luxury to a whole new level.
The term "catio" comes from the combination of "cat" and patio. It is a trend that is becoming increasingly popular.
The idea is to provide a terrace for cats to give them a nice outdoor space, without them escaping and running into danger.
Catios vary in size and scale: some are attached to windows like flowerpots, while others are large enough and attached directly to the side of the house. Some are presented as enclosures on an entire terrace for cats and humans to enjoy together.
To get an idea of how people are enjoying the catio trend, check out some super cool designs.
1. The Classic
The design of this catio matches the style of the house. The human who built it said: "Mars really, really loves his catio! He goes in through the cat door several times a day, no matter the weather. He LOVES being outside, and I have peace of mind knowing he's always safe."
2. The "Man Cave"
This catio is dedicated to the Seattle Seahawks, a man's favorite team and his cat. The catio includes 12 flags, a football carpet, an NFL Marshawn Lynch figurine, a chair, and of course, some football-themed cat toys.
3. By the Window
With this setup, Kitty can be by the window that he often looked at from the inside. At the same time, he can keep an eye on what's happening inside the house while enjoying the great outdoors. All without obstructing the view for humans inside.
4. A Shared Terrace
Here, humans and cats can relax together.
By transforming an outdoor terrace with a few elements for jumping and climbing and a mesh to keep the cat inside, everyone benefits!
5. A Transformed Old Patio
A space that wasn't being used much has been transformed into a perfect enclosure for cats. It's much better this way!
6. A Garden Catio
An elevated cement garden that wasn't being used much has been transformed into a very stylish catio. It's superb!
7. The "Cat Gazebo"
It looks like a beautiful gazebo nestled among the trees. But it's actually a luxurious catio! There is plenty of space for resting and relaxing, as well as climbing and observing wildlife.
8. The Rainbow Cabin
This colorful catio is surely one of a kind. It was built on the side of the house to not obstruct the window view. The owners created a small bridge from the window to the catio, which provides enough space for the cats to exercise, relax, and have fun.
9. The Discreet
From a distance, you wouldn't guess that this lovely little structure resembling a gazebo is meant for a cat. We love its elegant design and the way the garden grows around it. It's an ideal place for the cat to feel in nature.
10. The Grand Luxury
With such a space, no cat could complain!
11. The Sanctuary
The architecture of this catio blends perfectly with the landscape, offering panoramic views thanks to unbreakable windows, custom climbing shelves, and lush greenery.
