Fox’s Story

Fox’s Custom Catios began when a homeless kitten changed our lives forever.

Fox was a hungry, homeless kitten when we adopted him. He quickly let us know he wanted to explore the great outdoors but it was just too dangerous. After we successfully cat-proofed our yard, it became obvious that many other cats needed safe outdoor space but their humans did not know how to provide it. Fox’s Custom Catios was born.

Why your cat needs a catio

A catio helps your cat be safe, happy, active, and healthy.

  • On average, outdoor cats have a much shorter lifespan (just 2-5 years) than indoor cats (15+). They face dangers like traffic, disease, humans, predators, poisons, other cats, injuries, and getting lost.
  • Physical activity and mental stimulation is important for your cat’s health.
  • Letting cats roam is illegal in Calgary.
  • Emergency vet visits can cost thousands of dollars.
  • Catios protect local wildlife like birds.
  • A catio creates more territory, which means less stress for cats in multi-cat homes.
  • A catio can reduce behaviour issues by reducing stress.
  • Inactive cats experience health problems.
