There are many benefits a Catio can provide.
Catios are a great way of allowing cats the freedom to be outdoors, while being contained within their own backyard, keeping them from roaming the neighbourhood.
By allowing your cat to roam around the neighbourhood, there are many threats that you are exposing it to. Keep your cat safe and reduce the risk of fights, dogs, foxes, theft, becoming lost, disease, and the most significant risk of being injured or killed by a vehicle.
Studies have shown that roaming cats can be a threat to local species across New Zealand. Cat containment laws exist in many councils across New Zealand, with heavy penalties for owners who let their cats roam around unrestricted.
A Catio is also a great way to keep your cat stimulated and happy. So, let your cat soak up some sun while safely enjoying the outdoors.
