What’s a “catio”? Come and find out
Vashon Audubon, the Vashon Nature Center, and Catio Spaces of Seattle are co-sponsoring the VIPP Catio Tour on Saturday, Sept. 21, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Join us to learn all about the benefits of providing an outdoor enclosure for your feline companions.
The tour includes five catio sites where you can view a variety of safe outdoor enclosures for cats (cat + patio = “catio”). Catios protect not only the pet, but birds and other small wildlife as well. These permanent catio structures range from frugal to fabulous, and are in various locales around the island, from the VIPP cat shelter near Burton to closer to the North end.
Tickets cost $10 per person (children free) and may be purchased before the event at VIPPCatioTour.BrownPaperTickets.com, or on the day of the event at the VIPP cat shelter, 12200 SW 243rd St., Vashon. You will receive a map for this self-guided tour.
The event will be held rain or shine, so please dress accordingly. Sturdy walking shoes are encouraged.
You will be asked to sign a participation waiver before the event.
