Theo, Mika and Zara are all very different, but they have at least one big thing in common — they all love the idea of being outside. Having three cats running around outside is a lot to manage, though, so their parents don’t often take them on outdoor adventures.
“The two girls would always stay close by, but Theo would often jump a fence and we would spend the afternoon trying to get him home again,” Aimee Heywood, the trio’s mom, told The Dodo. “We know how much they love being outside but unless [they’re] always on lead out the back, there is a risk of them taking off.”
Heywood and her husband love their animals more than anything, and wanted to find a way for the cats to get the experience of being outside without the risks — so the couple decided to build them a “catio.”
