First on our list is the catio located in Austin, Texas. This 8×15 enclosure is made with stained cedar and features black 1×1 fencing, creating a sturdy and secure space for the cats to play and explore. The inside of the catio is a true paradise for cats, with a wide range of cat shelves for climbing and lounging, a human bench for their owners to sit and relax, a cat tree for playing and scratching, and an outdoor cat litter box area. The combination of these features creates a space where cats can exercise, play, and relax in the great outdoors while still being protected from any potential dangers. It’s important for cats to have access to the outdoors, as it allows them to engage in natural behaviors and get mental and physical stimulation.

As the owner of Cat Topia, I am always excited to share our top catio builds with our customers and fellow cat lovers. In 2022, we were able to complete numerous impressive enclosures for our feline friends, but these five were the standout picks of the year.

The first layer is made of high quality scratch proof pet screen, while the second layer is made of galvanized steel wire fencing.

The enclosure is made with stained cedar and features black 1×1 critterfencing, providing a safe and secure space for the cats to play and explore. The tunnel connecting the catio to the house allows the cats to easily move between the two spaces, giving them even more room to roam and play.
