Ad said he was a house for more than one cat. Top level would have a hole to go to the bottom level. The hole in the top level takes up most of the space. My cats can barely walk around the hole. I don't think both of them can get in the top level at the same time. I had expected them to be able to sleep in the top and go to the bottom level to escape. Can't sleep in the top. They both could not lie down.
Easy to put together, directions were pretty straight forward. The materials are pretty thin and feel cheap. Using the provided screw driver, a screw splintered some of the wood. Feels/seems to not sit straight once put together 100%. Does not include any insulation. Not sure how "weatherproofed" this wood is. Time will tell. But it is definitely not worth the money spent.
I've had this house for probably 4-5 years. It is outside in the elements and has held up well. About two years ago the roof started to leak, easy fix I put a piece of plywood on the top that was bigger and took care of the leak. The biggest issue is the way the top floor is made with a big "escape" hole in it which leaves very little floor room for a kitty to lay down on. My friendly feral cat loves this house, but time has come for it to be replaced. The landing pads have disintegrated and it now leans to one side. I was thinking about getting another one in red, like the current one, but it is out of stock. I saw another one like this that has a better floor situation, but it has wheels on it. This is a serious flaw, what outdoor cat is going to use it if it moves because of the wheels.
More heavy duty than I expected. Easy to put together, sturdy, love that the top lifts. Love it.
This is a good house. It insulates well and accommodates more than one cat. It's easy to assemble and move. Well done!
Didn’t pre drill some holes and the upper door opening did not come with a plastic door. Material is thin and most likely pine which will rot outside even thought it somewhat primed. Lower door opening is small.
Shucks. I wanted this to be good. The price suggest it should be. But it ain’t. Thin wood, weird design. No insulation. It’s wafer thin. I’m considering adding insulation. That’s not why I wouldn’t order this. The instructions are so poor that you have to essentially put it together a couple of times. Don’t even bother with the non-instructions. Get your drill with Phillips bit or lose your hands putting this conundrum together. Grab a drink, your doing this for a minute. If you charge this much for wood and screws then label your pieces when the instructions don’t properly and clearly indicate what is what and who is who. I’ve already ripped up the box, pieces so I’m not returning but prepare to TRY and make usable. Will add photo after modifications. Dissatisfied.
This was fairly easy to put together... even a blind old bat like me could do it! Only one glitch. The guide pegs that slip into pre-drilled holes need to be spaced differently on opposing sides, so that the side can only be put together one way. As it stands now, the pegs are exactly the same spacing on either side and I got one side upside down, making the whole thing not work when I went to put the floor boards in... eliciting much snarling, growling and cursing! Maybe it was just the blind eyes... not noticing the tops and bottoms of the sides were different... I don't know. I finally realized my error and corrected it and the rest of the construction went together just fine. I could wish for a couple extra screws as I managed to lose one but had one in my toolbox that could easily take it's place so the construction got finished. The structure seems sturdy enough and only time will tell if the cat, which is an outside cat, will accept it as a domicile... especially in cold weather.
We had this for our feral cats It’s cheap wood to begin with, the bottom floor is not solid, let’s air through, the roof shingles and wood after a year was weathered and leaked I added styrofoam for insulation in the winter, also I made the entrance smaller so no raccoon can enter I don’t recommend this product, it’s not well build and not well thought through. Don’t waste your money
