The 8th Annual Catio Tour, hosted by the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and Portland Audubon, takes place virtually Saturday September 12, 10 am-4 pm.

The event will showcase 10 diverse outdoor cat enclosures (catios) that have been professionally filmed to showcase their creative and unique designs, from efficient to expansive.

Guests will “take the tour” via Zoom with other catio fans, be the first to see catio videos and have the ability to interact with catio hosts during a live Q&A.

The event was created to inspire cat owners to build or buy their own outdoor cat enclosure to keep cats safe from outdoor hazards while protecting wildlife from cat predation.

Proceeds from the event ($25 for full access, $15 for guidebook and catio videos only) will support the 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.
