After seeing how much the cats based in the converted garage/cattery enjoyed the catzebo, I knew I had to let the downstairs
cats have outdoor access as well. So we built them a "catio" or cat patio in September, 2007. It uses the same
window screeen petdoors as the catzebo. We did add a sunshade (not shown) to prevent Jade and Patch from getting sunburn
on their white ears. I orriginally called it a mini-catzebo, but it really is more of a patio for the cats. It
measures 4.5 feet wide, 9 feet long, and 10 feet high. The same netting was used as on the catzebo and the bottom half
is covered in the lattice work.
