Bought this wooden shelter for a <1 year old kitten who has been undernourished and somewhat displaced from it's home down the street due to other kittens bullying it. We gave it plenty of food and tried to encourage it to go in the shelter with food, which is a good way to acclimate a pet to a shelter. The included heated pad works well and is a little warm to the touch which most cats will enjoy, but our semi-wild kitten is so used to being outside 90%+ of the time it didn't remain in there. The shelter is easy to assemble and is a quality piece, even though it is a bit small but good enough for one cat or two kittens. It should be used in a protected location from the weather (we have ours in the carport). We will keep it for any other cats seeking refuge from the cold. Highly recommended!
This is perfect for one cat. I have lots of semi feral cats (almost all fixed now) so always looking for sonnet safe and warm for them. This is perfect bc they can see out through clear door flaps and they can easily escape if anything gets after them as it has entrance/ exit on each end. I put it together easily with yankee screw driver
I bought this house to help a feral cat (had TNR) visits my deck every day. For weeks, she hesitated to use the house, but recently she decided to use the house. I set the house on deck under the roof, but just in case I taped the top of the roof of the house with Gorilla Tape to avoid water goes in the house from there (the roof is made with two pieces of wood). The feral cat waits her food in her new house until I notice her arrival. It seems cold to me since the house has second exit for emergency, but she stopped using the cardboard box with self-warming pad placed in another bigger cardboard box. I don't know how warm the heating pad is, but the cat chose the cat house with heating pad over the cardboard house with self-warming pad. I thought I wasted of my money since the cat was not using the house for weeks, but now I'm happy to see the feral cat uses the house.
Bought this for the outdoor stray/feral cats since gets cold up here in the Winter. I ended up painting it to protect the wood & hopefully it will last longer. I also bought the K&H Vinyl/nylon house at the same time & prefer it since I can store it easier in the warm months. This one is cuter & don't have to worry about it blowing away, but if I buy another it will be one I can take apart to store.
Heating pad barely warms, if at all. I would not recommend for colder temperatures.
This product is well made and easy to construct. The heated bed provides warmth when the pet is on it. We live in the northeast and so we reinforced it some to hopefully get more years out of it - three coats of poly and a tin roof. We have it on our deck under a roof, but rain and snow still inevitably get on it. The only problem is our cat has not gone inside yet, it's been two weeks. This is not the product's fault. I also haven't given up hope. We are still trying to coax him in with treats and food. Fingers crossed!
Cute LITTLE house that can fit 2 feral cats and one kitten. The second opening is very problematic and requires covering to stop the wind draft. I covered this door immediately! Once covered it will provide a warmer inside temp otherwise it’s a breezeway!
I have a question, why when I was about to order this wooden outdoor cathouse it has two different prices? First time $61.00second time 179.00 what is going on here? Correct the price please. Catwhisper is interested.
I have purchased a few kitty houses for my covered porch and garage . I put heating pads in that I plug into a wall outlet. I place a small blanket folded horizontally over the doors do not use the flaps. My 12 lb feral cats took about a month to go inside , they love their houses inside day and night only out to eat and look around
Delivery was ahead of estimated day. Assembled easily. Put in our garage and within 5 minutes one of the neighborhood cats crawled in. Wasn't for him bur he slept the night there. The cat for whom the house was ordered has not yet slept in it but as winter approaches that may change.
