Are Catios / Cat Runs / Cat Enclosures Good for Your Cats?

A catio is ideal for curious and active cats. It can assist cats in expelling excess energy by allowing them to explore their new surroundings. Perhaps they enjoy sitting on the windowsill in the sun, and a catio will provide them with more area to do so. Catios can be built or purchased in two styles: freestanding and attached. Attached enclosures are three-sided structures attached to the side of a house or an existing porch or balcony. Your cat may freely enter and exit the outdoor enclosure through a window or cat door with an attached fence.

Catios are excellent solutions for keeping cats secure and happy

Most cats enjoy being outside, but it is dangerous for them or for birds and other small creatures to let cats roam freely. Catios (cat patios) provide cats with a breath of fresh air, a beam of sunshine, and a beautiful view, all while keeping them secure inside an enclosed building. Traffic, wild animals, other domestic animals, dishonest individuals, and sickness are all dangers that come with letting a cat run free outside. However, we also notice cats staring wistfully out the window, evidently yearning for a taste of freedom. We could believe cats are bored and need more exercise.It’s like giving your feline pals a vacation beach house—and you know they deserve it.

A catio may be as large or as little as your living space, money, and creativity permits. It can range from a tiny enclosure jutting out of an apartment to a larger building erected from the ground up. Your cat will adore you for it no matter how you make it or where you purchase it from.

Do Catios Prevent Cats from Outdoor Risks?

Cats aren’t the only ones who suffer as a result of their outdoor adventures. Cats may be prey for some creatures, but they are predators for many others. Outdoor cats are wreaking havoc on birds, reptiles, and amphibians, and environmentalists are rightfully concerned. Cats in catios may still interact with other cats, which is true. Free wandering or wild cats might approach an enclosed pet and smell it. They will not, however, be able to battle their way through the fence.

Cat owners have some reasons for allowing their cats to roam free. Cats are said to require fresh air, according to some. Others believe that social contacts amongst cats in the area are beneficial to them. But most outside cat interactions are primarily conflictual. If their cats aren’t allowed outside, some individuals claim they act out, pee in the house, or become violent. Finally, some cats basically can’t be kept indoors because their drive to seek out mischief is so great that they frequently escape despite their owners’ best efforts.

The most dangerous aspect of catios is that they are inadequately built. Cats may be able to escape from a shabby catio through holes. Some people believe that tall walls will keep the cat inside; this is a common misconception. Cats are notorious escape artists, so catios should be securely contained with a strong roof constructed of fence material. The risk is less if the catio is well-constructed. A well-constructed catio is an excellent option for your cat to enjoy the outdoors.
