Especially for cats and smaller dogs, safety is essential if your patio is on the second floor or on the first floor, next to a busy street. Use fine wire or plastic fencing if you have wide open railings. Double and triple check that there is no opportunity for your pets to take themselves out for a walk.

Consider the Weather
Provide shade with an umbrella or a pet canopy for warm summer days. Always have fresh drinking water available outside, maybe throw in a couple of ice cubes on a hot day.

Pet Friendly Outdoor Furniture
Pet friendly furniture is your best choice if you want to successfully share the patio with your pets. Choose scratch resistant materials, like wood, metal, or resin, and waterproof upholstery, where you can remove and wash the casings.
