This will be a nice warm weather resistant house for our occasional visitor
got this in, it is too small. Great for a very small cat. Biggest complaint I have is that on the cord, it tells you, "DO NOT USE AN EXTENTION CORD". Now when I read the review on this, it says it can be used in barns, etc. No way a barn had a plug in the place you need to put this. My plug on the back patio is right by the door, Cord is not long enough to be useable. The product went together ok, don't care for velcro it tends to break down especially when exposed to weather. the house velcros together, the "small" heating pad sits in the bottom. Because of the cord issue, I would not recommend this item to anyone. will send it back, still in the box.
I bought this heated outdoor cat house because I live in an apartment complex with tons of stray cats that I feed and it was getting colder outside. I was so excited since I found this one on sale and it had great reviews, but I'm incredibly disappointed with what I've received. I'm not sure if we received a defective one, but the heat barely works, even when I tested it inside my home. It seems cheaply made and the structure isn't very sturdy and I feel like a lot of cold air/wind gets in at the edges. The cats don't use this, but they do use an insulated cardboard house I have outside too. I would advise saving your money and going that route before trying this product.
I bought two of the K&H Outdoor Kitty Houses years ago and they still work GREAT! This is my third outdoor house I bought for another outdoor kitty. The kitties stay nice and warm all winter in my garage. I keep the outdoor houses plugged in all winter and just unplug them in spring. They have got to be the best thing ever made for outdoor cats. They all just love to come into the garage and warm up on those cold winter days & nights here in the northeast. Thank you K&H for caring about the animals that are not just inside our homes, but also the ones that live outdoors too! Love, love, love this product, and the kitties love, love love it too!!!
These houses with the heated bed is absolutely wonderful. We have 3 outside cats and they keep our kitties nice and warm. We even have the big dog house and heated bed from this company for our dog and he loves it as well. Before we invested in these, we used heat lamps and that in itself is a whole situation to deal with and worry about. When we were gone on vacation or gone for the day those would be turned off. But with these wonderful heated beds, our pets stay warm all day and all night without the danger of heat lamps. So glad we decided to get these. You will not be disappointed!
I have been taking care of "Yellow Boy," a yellow tomcat, for nearly four years! He is still very shy, but will touch his nose to my fingertip when I hold my hand out to him. He used to live under a vacant house. But, when the owner wanted to close up the foundation, I had to lure him up to our property. This took nearly six months! As winter approached I wanted to find some way to keep him from freezing to death! I bought this heated house and am so thankful that I did. For the first week or so, he only stepped gingerly into it when I put his food and treats inside. Then, I got the idea to set the house inside the small doghouse that I had been using for him. That way it "looked" sort of normal. Within three weeks total he was "sold" on it. I think the zero degree weather we had for a week over Christmas helped him get up his courage! Now, I see him inside of it a lot. I left the back "window" in place, because even I could not see it!! I wish I could put the "front window" in place, but I feel sure that would totally scare him to death! Maybe for next winter. Anyway, this product is a winner and I am so thankful that Yellow Boy is pretty warm and cozy!!
Fairly easy to assemble and requires no tools as it is held together by strong velcro. As many others have stated, I had to take the cat doors off because my cats would not go in. Actually, I haven't seen them go in still, except far enough to get the treats and then back out. It is light weight, so don't put it where the wind can blow it away. The heat is not very noticeable to the touch but I know if my cats would just get in it they would feel it and love it. It's big enough for an average size cat. A big catcould squeeze in but- would they even try? So, it's a good little house if your cat will go in.
My indoor cats love it! I got one for the feral cat I feed in the backyard and it took him a few days before he was brave enough to go in it. Now he likes it too.
I gave the barn a try so our indoor/outdoor cats could have a warm dry spot to sit outside if they weren’t ready to come in. They love it so much - I bought the log cabin so they didn’t have to wait for the barn to be vacant. Many good naps have been taken.
I bought the olive green. Nicely made. Sturdy. Velcro that holds walls and roof together is strong. Easily folds together and stays in place. It fits a small to medium cat. A larger cat might find it too small. The cat I bought it for does not seem to like the enclosed space, even with the roof partially open, and won't stay inside for very long. So I removed the heated pad and placed on a solid surface in my garage. Within a day she was sleeping on it. I think it heats up to a nice temperature. If she would stay inside the cat house, I think the heated pad and house combined would make a cozy, warm space.
