Giveaway: DIY Catio Plan from Catio Spaces


This giveaway is sponsored by Catio Spaces

Catios are a great way to allow your cats access to the outdoors and keep them safe and healthy at the same time.

Catio Spaces offers a variety of DIY catio plans that take the guesswork out of building a catio to save you time and money. Build one yourself or hire a carpenter to build it for you. The catio plans include a variety of designs for a window, deck, patio or yard to complement your home and suit your feline’s fancy.


Each plan includes a material list, tool list, step-by-step instructions and diagrams that make the process easy-to-follow and build. Wood framework can be left natural, stained or painted to match your home. And best of all, you can decorate your catio! I particularly love the idea of putting a lounge chair inside the catio so you can hang out there with your cats.

    I would love to have a catio for my two cats, Luna & Marshmallow. They love to go out into our Florida room which has one wall of large windows so I know they would absolutely love to have an actual outdoor space. I would LOVE to win one of thes plans!

    My four rescue kitties are patiently awaiting a catio to call their own. I just have to save up! 😉

    My cat, Smokey, tries to sneak outside every time the door opens. He would absolutely love a catio. My other cats would be sure to enjoy it too.

    Since losing my last beloved cat two years ago to a horrific hit-and-run tragedy that happened right by our house, all my remaining four fur-kids are completely indoor-only. While they’ve adapted to being indoors 24/7, I can’t help but feel that I’m denying them their natural instinct to explore the outdoors and to breathe in fresh outdoor air. If I won this wonderful giveaway, I could give my sweet boys a bit of freedom, some more room to stretch their legs and actually be outside instead of just looking at the outside world through a closed window, but still keep them completely safe. It would make me very happy…and I know it would make my boys even happier.

    These are so amazing and perfect for my baby. He’s a Sphynx, who’s very curious and loves being outside. I would love to have a safe place he can hang out and enjoy the outdoors without me worrying about him getting lost.

    I would like to win a Catio for my kittens, Hamilton and Jefferson because I won’t let them go outside and they love to sit in the windows. A Catio would give them a little more freedom and lots of fresh air. I know they would love a Catio.

    My kitty is indoor only. She loves watching the birds outside. This Catio would give her even more birdwatching space.

    This is awesome! I have 3 cats, and one of them is always escaping out the door. He loves the indoor life, but he was a cat that someone left behind next door when they moved (do NOT get me started on THAT!), and he still gets the itch to sneak out. This would be perfect for him, as well as my other two cats.

    This is a second attempt. The first time went blank. I would like to win this for a friend who does rescue. It would be just perfect for her back patio area.

    I would like to win this for a friend who does rescue. It would be perfect outside her sliding back doors and her husband could build it for her.

    We have 4 cats and we foster many cats of all ages thorought the year. This would be ideal way for them to get some fresh air and be safe.

    I foster for a few rescue groups and have my own cats. This would be wonderful for my long term fosters to have the best of both worlds…inside and out!

    This would be a safe and great alternative for my indoor cat, Kismet (and maybe her sweet dog sister, Olive. We have to be extra mindful and careful when we open a door, because she is so curious and seems interested in the outdoors.

    I would love to have one for my 3 cats because they love to look outside but I don’t like them to be outside. This would allow them to be outside but still be safe. Thanks so much for this chance!!

    I recently moved to a new house and have been looking at building a catio off of the patio. It would be great to get a head start with a catio plan!

    I really would love to win this so I can place it outside for our cats m, foster cats and the ferals that we take care of! This would be ideal!

    The mom doesn’t let us outside to roam freely but having a catio would allow us outside time and we would love that.

  35. Connie
    May 4, 2017 at 9:16 am (3 years ago)

    My cat would love to raom free outside, but we live near a highway, so it’s too dangerous for him to be outside. This would be the perfect solution. He can be outsideyet be safe at the same time. I just hope they’re sturdy enough to prevent any possible escapes.

  36. Claudia C.
    May 4, 2017 at 9:08 am (3 years ago)

    My boys would LOVE this outdoor adventure space. Living in a condo doesn’t allow for outdoor time. This would be great!

    Ingrid, these are great. Just curious… the plans are $39.95-$69.95, is there an estimated cost for the material? This is something we may want to consider once we get moved. : )

    • Ingrid
      May 4, 2017 at 4:56 pm (3 years ago)

      I would imagine that material costs can vary widely depending on where you buy, what part of the country, etc. I would contact Catio Spaces to see if they can give you a ballpark figure.

    This is such a great idea, and the plans look very nice

  39. Janine
    May 4, 2017 at 8:12 am (3 years ago)

    Two of my cats would love this (the third doesn’t like the outside world, but I bet this would change her mind). I can just picture them soaking up the sun and enjoying the day out there without having to worry about their safety.

  40. Nancy Loring
    May 4, 2017 at 7:56 am (3 years ago)

    I have 3 cats and 2 go out but one is to afraid to go out and this would be perfect for him. Now he just sits by the window looking out and I always feel so bad for him.

  41. Jean Bowden
    May 4, 2017 at 7:45 am (3 years ago)

    My husband and I are currently enclosing our back porch and turning it into a catio for my 3 cats.

  42. Kellie Roberts
    May 4, 2017 at 7:18 am (3 years ago)

    My boys love the outdoors! They are harnessed trained but sometimes our work schedule doesn’t allow for enough time outdoors. This would be an awesome, and safe, addition allowing them to come & go as they pleased while overlooking the small creek (and all its avian inhabitants) next to our home.

  43. Mary Mazowiecki
    May 4, 2017 at 6:37 am (3 years ago)

    I would love this for my cats!! My cats would love it!! They could get the benefit of fresh air without the threat of predators!!

  44. Maryann
    May 4, 2017 at 5:20 am (3 years ago)

    I have 6 former ferals that would love to be able to reconnect with the outdoors. Especially one that hugs any open window. They have adjusted to indoor life, but oh, they would be in heaven if they could get a little bit of the outdoors.

  45. Holly
    May 4, 2017 at 5:17 am (3 years ago)

    Would love this for our two indoor cats, they love sitting at the screen door watching the critters. We have been looking at catio ideas for years.

  46. Eileen
    May 4, 2017 at 5:16 am (3 years ago)

    This would be fantastic for my four cats, they would love it!

  47. John Smith

    I would love to win this because I love cats, and I love good architecture and design!

    My cats are indoor-only cats, even though two of them were found as strays. There are too many dangers outside to let them roam free, but they do love being outside. I’ve been wanting to make a catio so they can enjoy the outdoors without the dangers roaming cats face. Our dogs go outside, since they can be contained in our fenced yard, but I know how my cats can jump. No fence will keep them in, but a catio would let them enjoy being outside.

  49. Deleta Yates
    May 4, 2017 at 1:48 am (3 years ago)

    My four indoor cats would certainly love the safety and freedom of a catio!

    I have wanted a safe catio for all my longterm foster kitties [all are special-needs of all varieties] and still have 8, mostly seniors but going strong, who could desperately benefit from a catio. They would never survive a single day by being outdoors unsupervised because of the calibre of neighbors I have.
