All About Catios

Upgrade your cat’s life with a catio. Catios provide safe and enriching ways for cats to explore and experience nature. And we’ve got solutions for renters too. Whether you DIY a catio or have one built, make sure the fencing will keep your cats safe from predators (and add fine mesh at the bottom to prevent baby snakes from getting in too).

The catios in this video that are surrounded by the red sands are located at our Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah.

And a big thank you to Kitten Lady for her gorgeous home catio footage built by The Catio Guy.

Be our Best Friend

Best Friends Animal Society is working with you to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes.

Just a few short years ago, cats and dogs were killed in staggering numbers in this country simply because shelters didn't have the community support or the resources to save their lives. That number is now less that half a million per year, but there's still work to do to ensure a bright future for every dog and cat in America.

Best Friends operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets by working with shelters and passionate people like you. Together, we will bring the whole country to no-kill in 2025. Together, we will Save Them All.
