GET IN ON THE CATIO CRAZE AT THE 9TH ANNUAL CATIO TOUR
Portland-area tour of 8 outdoor cat enclosures
PORTLAND, ORE — Don’t miss this very popular Portland, one-of-a-kind event! The 9th Annual Catio Tour will showcase eight distinct outdoor cat enclosures on Saturday, September 11. From DIY to designer, the catios in NE Portland, SE Portland, and Vancouver will inspire great ideas that fit any budget and space. This year’s event has two tour options available! With both In-Person and Online Video Tours, you can choose the tour that works best for you. Generous sponsors include Construction ReConstruction, Humane Society of United States, Mr. Plywood and Omlet.
Hosted by the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and Portland Audubon, the self-guided tour was created to inspire cat owners to build or buy an outdoor cat enclosure to keep cats safe from outdoor hazards while also protecting wildlife from cat predation. The In-Person Tour sells out so people are encouraged to get tickets early.
Funds from the Catio Tour support the Portland Audubon’s and Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon’s “Cats Safe at Home”™ campaign, which aims to reduce free-roaming cats in the Portland metropolitan area with solutions that are good for cats and wildlife.
