This is my homemade catio. I used what’s called “deer fencing”. It doesn’t obstruct your view or the view of your cats. It was simple to do and cheap. I wrapped it around my deck and then… 🙂 once it was installed (used steal beams for reinforcement in between) I cut sections of additional deer fence and attached it to the top at a 45 degree angle all the way around the top and about 10″ in depth. It isn’t the most beautiful job as I am no expert, but it works and we are all happy! 🙂 …. Carol
P.S. from Michael — there are quite a few pages on PoC about catios. I have always liked them and as Carol says they can be made cheaply. However, not everyone likes them.
Update: Here is Quentin, the guy with the dodgy leg who lives with Carol:
