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.

Catmando can help!

John was very good at listening to our ideas and sharing his suggestions.

I have a leash-trained cat, but taking him out on a leash gets boring quickly as I must walk where he wants at his slow pace! Having the "catio" built by John from Catmando has freed up a lot of time for me… the cat can now come and go as he pleases through his special cat door installed in the basement window. He learned how to use the door and the steps in the window well leading to his outdoor "catio" in only one day! We love that the space is big enough to include us too. With a table and chairs set up, we can enjoy our morning coffee or just spending time outdoors with him. It’s great knowing that he can safely go out there to enjoy the fresh air without any worries of predators or cars. It helps to relieve boredom for him and we’ve found that he sleeps better at night while he’s inside (we close his access at night to the "catio") thus giving us a better night’s sleep as well! We’ve since adopted two new kittens and they’re enjoying the enclosure also. John was very good at listening to our ideas and sharing his suggestions. He built the enclosure in a timely manner…even working in the cold and some snow! We’re extremely satisfied and highly recommend John and Catmando!

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.
