5th Annual Catio Tour
Saturday, September 9, 2017
FCCO and the Audubon Society of Portland have formed a truly unique partnership to motivate a change in our community. Both organizations agree that by having fewer pet cats roaming freely it is better for the cats and for wildlife. We created the Catio Tour to offer inspiration for those looking for ways for their cats to have safe outdoor time.
The Catio Tour, held annually in September, is designed to educate our community about how outdoor cat enclosures keep pet cats and wildlife safer. We hope to inspire people to build one for their cats. Catios offer pet cats healthy exercise time as well as safety from outdoor hazards like cars, predators and poisons.
If you missed this year's event you can purchase the post-event version of the 2017 Catio Tour Guidebook for $5. You'll see photos and be able to read about the 11 different catios on the tour, including materials used for construction, dimensions, and special features of the catios (maps and locations have been removed to respect the privacy of the hosts).

The Catio Tour is organized through the Cats Safe at Home campaign. Click here to learn more.
