Sunday morning catio

Three of our four cats were out in the catio this morning enjoying the gorgeous weather… and the wheat grass.

Houdini was inside trying to find someone to give him treats.

Aerial shots of the big catio

I got an inexpensive little drone a couple months ago (Holy Stone HS165) just for fun and this weekend was my first chance to fly it, so I figured I’d try to get a few aerial shots of the big catio. It was a success, though the photo quality is mediocre (only 1920×1080 resolution and the lens is questionable). It’s super fun to fly, at any rate!

I got fairly close while Melody was in the catio and she was unfazed. She was curious about the weird, buzzing thing, but wasn’t hesitant at all until I got too close, and even then she just backed off a little bit. She’s kind of fearless!

Really… Our cats are not spoiled… Part 4

Back in 2014, we moved and did a huge renovation on the new house (You can see portions in previous posts). Since we were doing some additions, we had the option to install a dedicated cat door into an exterior wall so that I could eventually add a big catio instead of the small, window units that I had made at the old house.

Fast forward 5 years and ta-dah! We have a big catio!

I sort of skipped to the end with that picture, so here’s a summary of the process, along with some tips and strategies that I used while building it.
