The tour will be from noon- 4 p.m., Saturday, May 16. Catios are the perfect Do It Yourself or designer addition to any cat guardians’ home or apartment and the Pacific Northwest has some of the finest examples to show off.
The self-guided driving tour welcomes registered visitors to catios on display in Seattle’s Ballard, Northgate, Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods. Registered Catio Tour Seattle visitors also can visit catios in Kirkland, Bellevue and Edmonds.
Catios come in many individualized designs and are built to allow indoor cats a protective outdoor experience while also minimizing their impact on local wildlife like birds and small mammals. For this reason, PAWS has joined partners Human Society of the United States and Catio Spaces for the first ever Catio Tour Seattle. The event is free, but participants must be registered to obtain the Catio Tour Seattle map. Visit www.catiotourseattle.com for more information.
