The Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and Portland Audubon offer two tour options for the 2021 Catio Tour Saturday, September 11, 10 am-2 pm.
The Tour showcases nine distinct outdoor cat enclosures ranging from DIY examples to professional designs in the Portland metro area to inspire ideas that will fit any budget or space.
Keep cats safe from outdoor hazards while protecting wildlife from cat predation.
The Tour can be experienced in-person as a self-guided tour or through online video tours.
The in-person tour is expected to sell out quickly. Those interested are encouraged to buy tickets early.
In person tickets are $10 and include a guidebook and hosts and volunteers available at each Catio stop to answer questions.
For those that prefer the online video tour, $15 tickets offer professionally-created videos of each Catio and interviews with the homeowners about their construction and features along with the guidebook.
The guidebook is complete with details about Catios, photos, quick facts, building materials and costs that will be emailed to ticket holders approximately one week before the tour.
There will be photos and 360-degree images to allow viewers to fully explore the Catios.
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 with solutions good for both cats and wildlife.
Both ticket options are available at CatsSafeAtHome.org The deadline is September 8 to purchase in person tickets.
