Rated 5 out of 5 by LouLouLaLa Excellent for outside kitties
I've purchased multiple X-small Petmate Barnhome IIIs with door flap for our outdoor kitties. Most are kept in a semi-protected area next to our house - with "home" door facing our house wall to help eliminate drafts and snow in winter. I purchased [VERY inexpensive <$5] synthetic twin-size blankets at local WalMart, folded them to floor-size for nice fluffy bottom of "home" - then wrapped another, similar blanket around a pre-measured piece of cardboard to create a [3-sided] soft wall area for them to curl up against. Pop the roof on and you're ready to go for winter. Check them every so often. Sometimes feral males [and females?] will pee in them to establish territory. Don't want wet and frozen blankets. That can be frustrating. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Chewy.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yankeegonesouth Great little pet house
I bought the smallest size for a stray cat I've been feeding. I have a crate liner inside and tho I don't think he goes in it yet I check it often for wetness. It has been rainy and yet the inside has remained dry. The house is very sturdy and I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Autumn Simple, but Great
I spent hours searching for a dog house. I have a lab puppy that is very destructive. While it does have some teeth marks, it is definitely durable. We have had some heavy rain recently and the inside stays completely dry. It works, and it doesn't break the budget. Win Win!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jan52 PETSMATE DOGHOUSE - SMALL
This is a nice dog house and it is working great for my three outdoor cats. I put a carpet mat inside it and put it on my back patio with the door facing the brick wall for more protection from the weather.
Two of the cats are using it and like it. The Small is very big and looks more like a medium which is fine since I have three cats using it.
I do recommend it. A good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jhailey86 This house is perfect for my outdoor cat
I have a 14 year old outdoor cat. I wanted to find her a shelter which would protect her from the rain and the cold weather to come. I had a hard time deciding on the right shelter, until I went to our local zoo to see the new red panda cubs. I noticed in their exhibit was a small house just like I needed for my cat. It was a petmate barnhome. I figured that if the zoo was using it, it must be a good product, and I ordered one as soon as I got home. The house is great! It is made of very sturdy plastic and is quite heavy, and does not leak. I ordered the xs size, which fits my cat. The only drawback I can see so far is the door. The opening is quite large, which allowed the rain to blow right in and soak the interior of the house. I solved the problem by facing the door to the house to prevent the wind from being able to blow the rain in. I will get her a flap for the door, and it will be perfect. I also ordered the smallest size of the self warming pad, which the cat loves. Almost every time I go to check on her now, I find her curled up, toasty warm in her cat house.

I purchased this dog house for my daughter. She just loves it and so do her new puppies. It was easy to assemble, durable and functional for two small puppies. We purchase the rain sheet too which was easy to install and the puppies caught on quickly how to get in and out of their new home.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LBART NOT INSULATED
I own this product. This is a hard plastic type construction that does not provide insulation. It also leaks and water collects in the bottom edges of the "raised floor", if enough water gets in it will soak the whole bottom. I have had to seal the sides where the two pieces connect together, I bought flexible insulation to line it, and I put straw in it for comfort and extra insulating properties. I bought a "kitty tube" to make sure my feral cat wouldn't freeze, but she has the petbarn as an alternate if a bigger cat chases her out. this home will only work in a covered area out of the rain and snow.
