These Awesome Folks From New Zealand Built Their Cats A Bada** Outdoor Enclosure (15 Images)

Or a "Catio" if you will. These awesome people took on a massive project to help improve their cats quality of life by giving them a safe outdoor environment. They posted their project, along with all the steps taken on Imgur. When asked why didn't they just let their cats out, they responded, "We made a personal decision when we got them that we didn't want to expose them to dangers like traffic, other cats and diseases. We also wanted to make sure that we weren't introducing predators into our area that would hunt the native birds. NZ has amazing bird life that our kitties would probably gleefully murder given half the chance."

Via Telegraph: "A valiant farmer told Newshub about the rescue mission which successfully saved the lives of the bovine family.

'We managed to get a track in and bring them out,' he said.

'They desperately needed water, cows don’t like living without water so that was the first requirement.'

He said a fault line had run along the farm, killing many cows, but that fourteen had been saved in total."

New Zealand is home to great natural beauty and wildlife, and economist Gareth Morgan has launched a campaign to keep it thriving. One of the pillars of his campaign? Making sure that the cat you own will be your last.

"That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer," he writes. "Every year cats in New Zealand destroy our native wildlife. The fact is that cats have to go if we really care about our environment." His campaign is called Cats to Go.

Cats to Go aims to slowly phase out the cat population through effective neutering and a mandatory cat registry.

Uh oh. What do YOU think about Mr. Morgan's environmental endeavors? You can read the full article HERE.
