If you have a catio in the greater Seattle area, apply to be a host on this year's or a future year's Catio Tour! Help us share the benefits of cat safety and enrichment while keeping birds and wildlife safe.

February 25, 2018: Deadline to apply to be a catio host for the 2018 Catio Tour Seattle.

March 3, 2018: Applicants' catios will be visited by the Catio Tour Seattle committee to review and make a selection.

March 14, 2018: Applicants will be notified of the selection.

The 2018 Catio Tour Seattle will be held on Saturday, July 28, 2018.


​After submitting your application, please email 2-3 photos of your catio(s) to education@paws.org. In the subject line, include: "Catio Host - Your Last Name/City".


  • Catios will be reviewed and the selection will be made based on parking, catio access and concentrated geographic areas for the tour. Unfortunately, not all applicants' catios can be selected for the tour, but your application will be kept on file for consideration in future years if you are not chosen this year.
  • Catio hosts must be available to greet and answer questions from visitors for the duration of the tour (4 hours) and should expect 400+ tour visitors.
  • A Catio Tour volunteer will be on-site at your home to assist with the tour.

​​​​Photos submitted with your application may be used by Catio Tour Seattle for promotional materials including posters, postcards, website, social media, and by tour sponsors and media exclusively for the purpose of promoting Catio Tour Seattle.  ​

Do your cats bask in the sunshine, feel the breeze and watch the birds - all from a catio? If so, we want to hear from you!
