Frequently asked questions
What can I expect of the catio tour?
The self-guided catio tour shows off seven catios in the Kitsilano and Mount Pleasant. Our catio tour guidebook will be emailed to you about a week before the tour. It will have photos, catio information, and maps so you can plan your route ahead of time. You can begin and end your day at any of the stops! Catio hosts, BC SPCA staff, and volunteers will be available at each catio stop to chat with you about the catio features.
Will I be able to interact with cats on the tour?
We cannot guarantee that cats will be out in their catios during the time of the tour. But catio hosts, BC SPCA staff, and volunteers will be available to tell you all about the catios and feline residents.
What is a catio?
A catio is a screened-in space, a patio for cats if you will! The structure can be attached to the home or free-standing and often includes perches, ramps and other enrichment for cats.
