You would need one out here because of the coyotes.  Some people say the hawks and owls will also eat cats, but I'm not sure I believe that.

There's the problem. Not enough cats.

One of our cats has never recovered his nerve after being frightened by a fox. He'll come into the garden only if we are out there already.

I have had a "catio" for over thirty years. My current one goes 3/4 of the way down the side of my house. It is built into a metal fence. It is partially covered on top with skylight material, the front part is covered with cyclone with a cyclone gate for easy access. I had plastic lattic work put on the front part that faces out into the yard. It looks like you are entering a special garden, plus gives privacy:) There is a honeysuckle bush that growns over the open top part! I have a bench out there, love to go sit, watch, & brush my cats...The covered part has built in shelves where I put cat beds, afgans, etc. They have a litterpan, I put fresh food & water out daily. My cats can go out 24/7 through a kitty door in the window! They love it, some of them live out there most of the time, but will come in when it is very cold or for their nightly canned food! I am thinking very seriously about starting a business that would build these for people wanting their indoor cats a chance to go outdoors safely. Any comments, ideas would be appreciated.

As we apply pressure to elevate them out, their brittle nature leads to pieces cracking away. Add in very strong, dense bone to the clinical scenario and we have a real challenge. I used modern instruments called periotomes to free up the root, but still had to resort to some minor removal of supporting bone in order to complete the extraction. This is the part of the process that always used to lead to severe post-operative pain. Tooth extraction sites heal by first filling with a blood clot. The body seaasdffnds in immune cells and inflammatory chemical messengers; later on blood vessels migrate in and eventually bone forms in the socket- but it's a lot less bone than we'd like. And the more trauma during the extraction, the more post-op pain.
