Calling all cat lovers! If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your cat’s living space, this is the event for you. The Portland Audubon and Feral Cat Coalition are hosting the annual Catio Tour, showcasing creative and unique catios from around the Portland area.
First things first. What’s a catio? It’s an outdoor cat enclosure, or cat patio, that provides feline safety and enrichment in your backyard. They have become so popular among the cat-loving community in Portland that there have been enough to make this tour an annual event.
The 2020 Catio Tour is going virtual with 10 professionally filmed catios showcasing creative and unique designs for all different types of spaces.
The tour is part of Portland Audubon and the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon’s Cats Safe at Home campaign, which seeks to reduce the number of cats living outdoors in the Portland area in a humane and environmentally responsible manner. The Catio Tour was created to offer inspiration for people who are looking for ways to give their cats safe outdoor time.
The 2020 Catio Tour is taking place on September 12 via Zoom. The virtual event will include tours of 10 catios in the Portland area and a Q&A about catio construction.
You’ll have two ticket options to choose from.
