There’s no question that pet cats live longer, healthier lives when they are kept exclusively indoors. Indoor cats are protected from injury, have fewer problems with illness and disease, and tend to have much longer lifespans than their outdoor peers. That being said, any cat owner who has witnessed his or her cat stare longingly out the window for hours on end probably doesn’t feel completely comfortable with the indoor-only arrangement.
But what other option is there? Enter, the “catio”!
All of us at Clairmont Animal Hospital believe that indoor cats shouldn’t miss out on fun and enrichment, which is why we are so excited to tell you all about something called a catio and how you can build one for your feline friends!
