FRODO: What the heck (oh pardon my language) what the goodness is going on outside?
THE HUMAN: Surprise! I got the cats an outdoor cat containment unit from Habitat Haven a wonderful company from nearby Toronto that makes safe outdoor areas for cats and dogs!!! They have hundreds of different kinds and sizes and they will install them or you can order them to install yourself. (PS I do not get anything in exchange for mentioning the company. I just think it’s a great idea and want other cat lovers to know their options!). I added the wood planks that the cats use as steps and places to rest (though you can also get those installed as well) and mats.
The cats can go in and out anytime they want through a cat door inserted into a Plexiglas window. If I don’t want them to go out (like at night or in the winter), I just close the inner kitchen window!
Of course, Frodo was the first to embrace it. He loves it and spends hours and hours out there:
THE HUMAN: The plan is that I will still take Frodo and Zulu out for some supervised visits outside but otherwise they can hang in the containment anytime they want.
While Frodo loves it, Zulu is taking a little bit longer to come around. Which is as expected because new things terrify him. But he is taking more and more steps outside!
ZULU: I’m not sure bars look good on me.
Amarula is likewise a bit apprehensive as she seems to think I may force her to stay behind bars with Zulu and Frodo (which I won’t)
AMARULA: While I refuse to be contained…
AMARULA: Spending a little bit of time behind bars might heighten my street cred!
FRODO: I think it’s the best gift ever, filled with perfect napping planks!
Can’t wait to see the creative ways the cats think of to use their new containment unit!

What a lovely thing to do for your kitties. They do love the fresh air and sunpuddles. You are a good kitty parent.
Have a purrfect Awww Monday. ♥
Oh my stars, how fantastic!! You are so lucky to have a hoomin like this. And last picture is classic Frodo.
That looks like a great outdoor area for all of you. I can see you approve, Frodo.
Wow! This is the coolest catio ever!

I’m so-o envious! A what a nifty way to come and go through the window! I sure would like a setup like that in my yard. Maybe if I bookmark the company on the computer then Mom will get me one! Tee hee hee. I can’t wait to see more pics of you in your new hangout! Hugs!
Wowwee! What a pawsome catio!! You guys are so lucky to have such a cool place to go out and enjoy your yard.
What a great “catio” ! Hopefully they will all begin to use it – though probably not at the same time !
You are the luckiest kitties ever! That is a nice catio.
Oh my goodness, that is amazing and looks so nice! I. know that will sure get lots of use.
Wow! That’s great! Too bad we don’t have a yard to ourselves here because I would totally force my mom to get one for the stoopy little boys. (And I would close the window!!!)
I love it!!! Glad your cats have joined the ranks of catio kitties!
That is a fantastic Catio,and we are sure you will all own it soon.Amarula, you need a Platform of Power that can be your throne. Now, how is it placed for sun puddles?
And Äiti wants to know how it is secured to the ground. She says it is the most amazing commercial Catio she has seen. Now, I wonder if we can get a Catio’ extension”……
Oh WoW! I am so jealous! It is WAY cooler than the one we have on the deck (though ours is way better than just window wiffs)
Oh my goodness, this looks fantastic! I love love love your catio! We got our catio from the same company. Love their simple design and various plan. I wish we had a large yard to place gorgeous catio like yours 🙂 Lucky kitties, I’m sure they fully enjoy it!
Behind bars with Frodo?!? No where to run to get away from him?!? I’m insulted on your behalf, Amarula! Though I admit it would be pretty cool to have a catio – it would be best to have it all to one’s self 😉 ~Bear Cat
So know you got a real jail …
When you cannot, for safety reasons, leave your cats outside alone, it’s a good alternative.
Frodo seems to really enjoy it.
Pawtastic! You guys are so lucky to have a catio. Enjoy!
That is so cool. Wish we could have one. Enjoy it ya’ll. Big hugs
Dezi and Raena
That is the bestest catio system we have ever seen. The only thing my mommy would be worried about is that I would never come in to just keep her company by sitting by her side anymore. A catio should be human sized too so they can lounge about in it with us. I know this has a door for them to come in, but not much room to pull up a lounge chair so she could relax and read a book or use her iPad while I am out. Just for the company!
Oh, that is SO fantastic!!! You kitties scored! (I love how you corrected your “naughty” language, Frodo! MOL)
Pawsome ! That’s so cool ! What a wonderful surprise ! Enjoy your fantastic new catio ! Purrs
