American Bird Conservancy says that about 80 million pet cats, plus 60 to 100 million homeless or feral ones, kill more than 500 million birds every year in the U.S. Only one-third of cat owners always keep their cats indoors. Linda Bainbridge, of Whidbey Island, Washington has found a way to accommodate her love for birds and cats. Linda says, “Cats are not native; cats are fed by us… They have such an edge on these other creatures that have to deal with the elements.” So Linda built an outdoor enclosure for her cat – a catio!
