cats' bliss

Just a few days after my post about our cat balcony I found this wonderful catio that has been created recently in the Netherlands. These cats live in bliss with Yolanda Elizabet Heuzen.

I have asked Yolanda if I may share her pictures on my blog and she kindly gave permission, saying, "The more people know about how to keep cats safe and how to find them when they've gone missing, the better."

The "feliary" as Yolanda calls it, was built after one of their cats got lost and her owners put an incredible effort into the search for her. It is the most thrilling detective story I've read recently.

Beautiful way of combining love of cats and gardening...
Something to aspire to!


  1. Realy good idea - just like sharing it here as well, Chamomilla!

  2. Hello Eszter and thank you - you always have something nice to say :-)

    You see, I'm doing all I can to inspire people to add more cats to their flowers, and vice versa!

  3. It's a good idea to build a protected outdoor area for cats! Often it is too dangerous for cats in the cities, but they need the fresh air.
    Your balcony is beautiful!

  4. Chamomilla, What a lovely way to enjoy plants and cats! Thanks for sharing. Pam

  5. Hello Monika! Yes, cats are very curious animals and sometimes get into dangerous situations if they are not protected. I am very interested in the various ways people create safe "catios" for their cats. Thank you for the compliment!

    Dear Pam, thank you for visiting and for your comment!

  6. All my cats are very happy with the feliary and my small dog too. I'm also very happy with it as my pets can now play safely outdoors and I don't have to worry about them getting lost anymore.

    Thanks for spreading the knowledge about how to keep our kittycats safe and happy!

  7. Yolanda, thank you for your feedback on how the feliary works for the cats and for you! Enjoy!

  8. We've been following Yolanda's blog quite a time already and were very impressed how she found Vita. Isn't it the strangest thing that all went well for many years and all of a sudden she escapes?! Mom says she's love to have such a cool feliary. We're not too sure about it, but maybe we'd get outside more often then.
    Many purrs,
