Meet Cynthia

I’m passionate about design, nature and cats.

While I’ve been called the Catio Queen, my cat, Serena, is the one who truly owns the royal title (she has 4 catios!), and deservedly so, for being the inspiration for Catio Spaces and my “quality assurance” expert.

With a background in Feng Shui, I understand the importance of creating environments for wellbeing and I’ve expanded my design services to create visually appealing catios for feline (and human) enjoyment.

My joy is witnessing my 4-legged fur clients safely experience the enrichment of nature while protecting birds and wildlife.

About Catio Spaces

A passionate cat lover, Cynthia Chomos founded Catio Spaces to address the need for safe and visually appealing outdoor enclosures to enhance the lives of cats. After the loss of her beloved 22 year-old cat, she adopted her tabby, Serena, who is the inspiration for Catio Spaces. Cynthia combines her expertise as a Feng Shui Consultant and Designer to create outdoor havens for felines and their parents.

A member of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, Cynthia is a general contractor who works with a team of carpenters building custom catios in the greater Seattle area. She also offers a variety of DIY Catio Plans for cat guardians who want to build one themselves or hire a local carpenter to build a plan for them.

Catio Spaces is a sponsor of Catio Tour Seattle, an annual event to create community awareness of the benefits of catios for protecting cats, birds and wildlife.

Rave reviews from the catio webinar for the Bexar Audubon Society last night! I have already heard from several attendees about how helpful the presentation was to them in deciding what kind of catio to provide for their precious kitty friend. You have a budding fan club in San Antonio!  Thank you for sharing your talents, your caring, and your wonderful ideas.

Cynthia’s knowledge of constructing high-quality catios and her enthusiasm for their benefits for cats, wildlife, and pet owners is apparent throughout her presentation. “Wonderful, inspiring, excellent presentation” are several comments we received from the participants of Cynthia’s webinar. I can confidently direct any folks interested in building their own catios to her website,, knowing that they will get the resources they need. I highly recommend Cynthia as a speaker and webinar presenter for sharing the joy of catios!
