Cat Fencing vs Catios

If you are looking at cat fencing versus catios as a solution to keeping your cat safe in the garden, we've got some tips and videos to help you discover the benefits of each and choose which is right for you. When considering catios versus cat fencing, it depends on:

  • your requirements - do you want to have an expansive area to share with your cat or are you looking for a smaller space to give them fresh air?
  • your garden - smaller suburban gardens and terraces with patios are most suitable to catios
  • your cats - are they used to free roaming and would they benefit from access to your full garden? Or are they currently indoor cats that would be happy with sharing a patio area with you?
  • your budget - the projected price does not correlate with the amount of area your cats will get: catios use structural steel which can cost more over the same area as cat fencing. It is always wise to price up both options because the price will depend on the size and features of your patio or garden.
