Seattle has gone to the … cats - Catio tour May 16

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Saturday, May 16 – Noon to 4 pm

For the first time, the Seattle area will be treated to the latest must-have in cat companionship fun – the catio! Catios are the purrrfect DIY or designer addition to any cat guardians’ home or apartment and Seattle has some of the finest examples to show off. 

Catios come in many individualized designs and are built to allow indoor cats a protective outdoor experience while also minimizing their impact on local wildlife like birds and small mammals.

Catio are essentially outdoor runs for cats, allowing each an outdoor experience whilst shielding them from predators, and from being predators to birds and small mammals nearby.

As both a wildlife hospital and a cat and dog shelter PAWS is always looking for solutions for peaceful co-existence for all animals. Hence, the Catio Tour Seattle is a perfect fit for our involvement and we advocate for solutions like this.

The EIGHT homes selected for the tour have registered to participate in showing off their own catios (some designed by Catio Spaces, one of our event partners) and others designed by the homeowner themselves. Registrants will get a map of the Catios on display and between noon and 4 pm on Saturday, May 16th they can tour the homes on a self-guided tour. While we don’t have any homes in Shoreline L we do have a home on the tour in Edmonds. 

The first ever Catio Tour Seattle is on Saturday, May 16 from noon to 4pm. 

This self-guided driving tour welcomes registered visitors to catios on display in Seattle’s Ballard, Northgate, Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods.

As well, registered Catio Tour Seattle visitors can visit catios in Kirkland, Bellevue and Edmonds. 

PAWS has joined partners HSUS and Catio Spaces for the first ever Catio Tour Seattle. The event is free, but participants must be registered to obtain the Catio Tour Seattle map.
