What is the Catio Tour?

The self-guided Catio Tour showcases catios in the Portland metro. A guidebook will be emailed to you about a week before the tour. It will have photos, construction information, and maps so you can choose your route and pick which catios to check out. You can begin and end your day wherever you please...just like your cat! Catio Hosts, staff, and volunteers will be available at each catio stop to chat with you about the catio features.

The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and the Audubon Society of Portland have formed a truly unique partnership. Both organizations agree that having fewer cats roaming freely is better for cats and wildlife. We created the Catio Tour to offer inspiration for those looking for ways for their cats to have safe outdoor time.

Join us for a pawsitively fun day around Portland with fellow cat lovers while getting inspiration to build your own dream catio!
