Looking for items from Katio & Dogio that can help you elevate your pet’s quality of life?
The Kitty Kafe and Doggy Diner floating food and water bowl sets are just some of the company’s pet products that help solve pet parent issues everywhere!
Co-founded by Kelly Pepper and Alden Kat, Katio & Dogio was an idea that both came up with approximately four years ago.
According to Alden,
“What we’re trying to do is elevate pet parents and their pets’ lives. Our other sort of tagline is quality of life products for pets and pet parents alike.”
Katio & Dogio’s Flagship Products for Pets And Their People
The co-founders described Kat Kafe and Dog Diner as floating pet bowls. This means that you can mount them on your wall at whatever height your pet is.
They also come with a placemat to help keep things from being messy when your animals eat and drink.
“You can just fold them up, dump it right back into the bowls… And the fact that it aids in digestion is a really great selling point. It’s definitely not ideal for anyone to eat with their neck bent like that. And the fact that they’re wall-mounted allows you to really customize it to whatever height your pet is, whether it’s a cat or a dog… So, this gives you that freedom to put it at whatever height is necessary.”
This also makes it easier for pet parents during the cleanup since you don’t have to pick the bowls up when you try to sweep, mop, or vacuum.
For Katio, Alden and Kelly said it’s a cat litter box that you can install in your window, just like an air-conditioning unit.
As for Dogio, it’s the same concept but a version for dogs. Instead of a litter box, it comes with doggy pads and a ramp.
“For Katio, we’ll sell the ramp separately because if you have an old or injured cat or a kitten just starting to learn to get to the litter box, they can just go up the ramp and get inside the box. And it solves so many problems…”
How Katio & Dogio Came to Be
Even though neither of them has an inventor background, Kelly and Alden attributed their innovative ideas to the numerous firsthand experiences they’ve had as pet parents.
“With Katio, we kind of got tired of cleaning up… I was living in a small apartment, had six cats at the time, no place to put the litter box, except in the corner of my dining room, which is the worst place to put it. One day, I was taking a pretty large AC unit, moving it from one window on one side of the house to the other. And when I took the compressor unit out, one of my cats jumped in the cage that was still in the window. And I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is the answer! This is the solution!’”
One of the advantages of Katio being at window height is that you don’t have to bend over and kneel down; just scoop. This also makes it compliant with the ADA standards.
When asked about their plans for the future, both co-founders had this to say,
“Eventually, we want to have our own line of everything. Our tagline is elevate your pets’ life. And that’s really what we’re trying to do: to elevate pet parents’ and their pets’ lives.”
Aside from trying to build the doggy brands internationally, it’s important to note, too, that Katio & Dogio wants to be very involved with their charity partners.
In fact, they plan to give their pet rescue partners the ability to make money off their products.
