A Portable 'Catio' To Bring Your Cat Outdoors With You

Share Article

A great New York Times article recently discussed enclosed spaces in the form of a screened-in porch or deck called a “catio” for New Yorkers to enjoy the outdoors with their cat. Sometimes these elaborate solutions are just not possible for every cat owner for a variety of reasons, including city regulations, tenant code violations, or unhappy neighbors. The Kritter Kondo was invented as a creative solution to give cats the fresh air and sunshine they want.

If you can’t make a big commitment to your home because you are planning on relocating or regulations prevent you from building on your balcony, the Kritter Kondo becomes an excellent alternative.

Last month, The New York Times wrote an excellent article about ‘Catios’, which are enclosed spaces that cat owners are building for their cats on their terrace, balcony, or deck in New York City. These owners typically used PVC piping, chicken wire, deer fencing, or heavy mesh nets in creating these spaces. A new portable Catio is now available at KritterKommunity.com for people that live in apartments but cannot make alterations to their balcony.

“The pet owners who can’t build a Catio because of city code restrictions don’t love their pets any less,” said Lisa Illman, President of Kritter Kommunity. “It just means we needed to develop more creative solutions to the problem.” Lisa Illman invented Kritter Kondo, a catio that requires no building. The Kritter Kondo is a one piece portable structure that is easy to set up and take down on your balcony. It is aesthetically pleasing, collapsible, and portable.

“If you can’t make a big commitment to your home because you are planning on relocating or regulations prevent you from building on your balcony, the Kritter Kondo becomes an excellent alternative,” added Illman. “Ironically enough, after designing the purrrrfect portable Catio, I found out they make great playpens for pups too, and that traveling cats use them as well. We’ve even had some requests to create add-on Kondos for a longer Deluxe version. These ‘Konnectors’ will be available for purchase later this year, and they will integrate seamlessly with our existing Kritter Kondo Deluxe.”
