We transformed a small patio into a lovely catio, complete with a tall scratching pole, a cozy bubble dome bed, a bridge, and a cat hiding box.


We crafted two sliding barn doors. Additionally, we added a shelf atop a table, allowing clients to slide the table out for their enjoyment of the space. The sliding feature serves to prevent cats from walking on it when not in use.


This catio is shared by three fortunate feline companions.
