They can’t kill birds, and cats are protected from dogs, cars, coyotes, and other outdoor hazards. The screened spaces can be elaborate, freestanding structures outfitted with sunbathing perches, ramps and spiral staircases or a series of inexpensive wood and wire cubes. Maps will be provided prior to event. This is a self-guided tour, and you can visit as many or as few of the catios as you’d like. The catios can be visited from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. COST: Free!
