Catio Build Day One: Peeling It Back
Sunny and Patchouli are littermates, born in a Minnesota barn, adopted by us at about 5 months.
For kitties who've tasted the freedom to roam, they seem content being indoor only.
They have to be, because cats are not the top predators they think they are.
There's plenty that could get them here: eagles, coyotes, maybe even a mountain lion--though a tough raccoon would be bad enough.
All the neighbors have warned us to keep them inside. They know first-hand the feline body count is high.
But we still want them to have some form of outdoor access, so we're converting the back upper deck into a catio by building up and screening it in.
