  • How to print the plans?
    To print the catio plans, please follow these steps: Open the downloaded PDF file on your computer or device. Make sure you have a printer connected and properly set up. Click on the "Print" option in the PDF viewer or use the shortcut (Ctrl + P for Windows or Command + P for Mac). Adjust the print settings as desired, such as selecting the appropriate paper size, orientation, and quality. Optionally, you can choose to print specific pages or a range of pages if the plans are extensive and you only need certain sections. Once you have configured the print settings, click on the "Print" button to begin printing. Wait for the printer to complete the printing process. Ensure you have enough paper and ink or toner available for the entire set of plans. Once the plans are printed, you can organize them in a binder or folder for easy reference during your catio construction.
  • How do I care for my Catio?
    Catio care is a breeze! Here's the scoop: Treat cedar wood every 2 years, vacuum or sweep the carpet, and keep food out to avoid unwelcome guests. We're here to help with any maintenance needs.
  • How long does it take to build a Catio?
    In a purrfectly efficient manner, a catio can be built within 1-2 weeks. Meowgnificent!
  • Are Catios durable?
    Absolutely! Catios are built to withstand the test of time. We use durable materials like cedar wood, known for its natural resistance to weather, insects, and rot. Every component, from the mesh to the hardware, is carefully selected to ensure the catio's durability. So, you can rest assured that your furry friends will enjoy a sunny and secure haven in their catio for many happy years.
  • Are Catios Safe?
    Catios are like Fort Knox for your feline friends. We use top-notch buried mesh to outsmart any wannabe escape artists. Our construction is so solid, it's like a cat-proof fortress. Rest assured, your kitties will be safe and sound in their own little kingdom.
  • What kind of fence do you use?
    We have multiple options to choose from. The most common used is a galvanized wire mesh fencing with a black pvc coating. This does come in multiple sizes varying from 1/2"x1/2" openings - 2"x4" openings. We do recommend going with a smaller size if you will have small kittens in the enclosure. Our 1"x1" 16 gauge grid is a great option. If you would like other colors or heavier options such as a thicker gauge we can discuss custom options.
  • What about my HOA?
    You would need to discuss with your own HOA. Though we have had no issues yet, every HOA is different.
  • Can I have a Catio if I rent?
    In a renters situation you most likely will need a freestanding catio and a window that would work for a cat door. We recommend keeping these minimal as you would need to remove it upon moving.
  • Where can I put a cat door?
    Windows and doors are great easy options. We can put a cat door almost anywhere though. We provide and install cat doors on every build.
  • Can I have my cat's litterbox in the Catio?
    Yes you can! We recommend building a box to cover up the litter box to give your cat privacy and provide a clean look to the area. This also helps minimalize any smell and keeps bugs away.
  • What areas do you serve?
    We currently provide service to all of the greater Portland metro area. Will travel for the correct jobs. We can also provide info for catio builders in other parts of the country if needed.
  • I have a senior cat, would they enjoy a Catio?
    Cats of any age can enjoy the benefits of a catio. We can add items to fit the personality or life stage of your cat. If you have a senior cat that has trouble with jumping we will add steps or ramps to help them explore their new space.
  • How long will it take for my cat to get used to a catio?
    Every cat has a unique personality and will have their own response to the cat door and the outside life the catio provides. We have seen cats take to the door almost instantly. We have also seen cats take weeks to freely roam in and out. We recommend spending time with your cat in the catio if possible. Using toys and treats (make sure to clean treats and not leave food in your catio) will help your cat get used to the sanctuary. Patience is key here.
