BTW those two kittens in the picture are named Cheddar and Gouda! And one of the DIY plans linked to from this article has a CAT TUNNEL!!!
OMG that cat tunnel is amazing! Must get one!!
A catio is, if you haven't guessed it yet, a cat patio. Dedicated cat owners have been building budget and extravagant versions, and the phenomenon even has spawned sites that sell pre-designed kits. If you've got the budget, it's the perfect solution for pet owners who are cautious about letting Fluffy free in the neighborhood, but still want their cat to be able to experience the outdoors.
