Like their larger cousins, domestic cats are designed to roam and explore outdoors. They can readily escape from a conventionally fenced yard and will do so regardless of the dangers that threaten them – dogs, cars, stray cats, disease, getting lost and other unforeseen hazards.

I love knowing (my cats) are safe

I live in a neighborhood where outdoor cats and small dogs are frequently lost due to encounters with wildlife (coyotes, mountain lions, and birds of prey). Although I wanted my cats to be able to enjoy sunshine, scents, breezes, etc. of being outside, I did not want them to be able to roam freely and risk disease, fights, and/or early death. I was referred to catmando by a friend/prior customer.  After a comprehensive free review, I was given various options for creating safe spaces for my cats to enjoy outdoors. I chose to have Catmando partially enclose an existing dog-run in a way that is visually neutral and completely safe for my cats to enjoy.  It has ramps and viewpoints so they can look out in various directions.  The cats used it so often that I had him come back and enclose the remaining portion.  He also cat-proofed an upper level porch so that my cats can enjoy lounging outside without being able to jump to the roofline or down to the patio. John was able to work around my existing trees, rose bushes, and other structures.  He works fast and is quiet, tidy, and considerate. The price was reasonable and fair. My cat enclosures were installed several years ago and they have held up perfectly through adverse weather conditions. The cats love enjoying their outdoor spaces. I love knowing they are safe. It feels great to be able to offer my cats (and dogs) a safe way to enjoy being outside. I highly recommend catmando to anyone with cats (or small dogs).

why catmando?

Catmando owner John Kuepper has 20+ years experience keeping cats safe and happy. As a result, he has learned:

  • There isn't one material, system or approach that will work in every situation.
  • Tunnels can make the seemingly impossible situation, possible.
  • Kittens are particularly difficult to "contain" but it can be done.
  • As your pets age, modifications may be necessary to address mobility issues.
  • Some cats are very difficult to contain, but we are up to the challenge and determined to keep them safe .
  • Coyotes are in every metro neighborhood—you may not see them, but they are there.
