What is the Catio Tour?
The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and the Audubon Society of Portland have formed a truly unique partnership to motivate a change in our community. Both organizations agree that by having fewer pet cats roaming freely it is better for the cats and for wildlife. We created the Catio Tour to offer inspiration for those looking for ways for their cats to have safe outdoor time.
The Tour is designed to educate our community about how outdoor cat enclosures keep pet cats and wildlife safer. We hope to inspire people to build one for their cats. Catios offer pet cats healthy exercise time as well as safety from outdoor hazards like cars, predators and poisons.
