Feline Cat Coalition of Oregon and the Audubon Society of Portland are hosting their first-ever Catio Tour - a showcase of Portland area cat patios.

Catios allow felines to exercise and bask in the sun while keeping them safe from outdoor hazards and protecting wildlife from cat predation.

The Catio Tour will include 12 different catios in the Portland metro area. A guidebook, including catio photos and construction information, as well as directions, will be available to all participants prior to the event so you can plan your outing.

The event is Sunday, September 8, 2013, 12 to 4pm. Suggested donation: $5 per person

Registration ends Sept. 5 so if you are interested in going, visit Catio Tour 2013.
