CAT HOUSE DESCRIPTION:
This CAT HOUSE is made entirely of CEDAR. Cedar is a great insulator and one of the best woods for outdoor items. The house is secured together with BOTH nails and screws ….. making it very DURABLE. The interior is warm and the corners have been sealed to keep out drafts. The floor is elevated off the ground which will keep the occupants warm & dry. The entrance is 7x7" which allows easy entrance and exit. Your choice of ROUND ENTRANCE or SQUARE ENTRANCE. The entrance is also set off to the side so that pets can enter from one end and then create their bedding area in the opposite end ..... which most do. There is also a "windblock" inside the doorway to channel air away from the bedding area. The windblock is removable, if needed. The entrance is elevated above the floor to help keep any bedding materials (cedar shavings, straw, etc) from getting pushed out. Finally, we have added a FIBERGLASS SHINGLED ROOF for added protection and warmth. The roof is angled backward, allowing for water run off. The entire roof pivots back, allowing for quick inspection and cleaning of the interior. This cat house is low priced with fair shipping from Lafayette, IN. Also, you can see a variety of outdoor cat houses at http://www.arkworkshop.com.

CHOOSING A SIZE: When considering a cat shelter size, just remember that a house should be large enough for the pet to enter, make one full turn, and then lay down. Pet houses do not need to have alot of extra room. Too roomy of a house can be drafty. The purpose of a house is for the pet to retreat from the weather and have a place to stay warm.

NOTE: For shipping-safety reasons, the 2 lag bolts that hold the roof on for pivoting are removed for shipping. Upon arrival, you will need to reinsert and tighten the bolts down so that the pivot action will work. Otherwise, the roof will be a lift off type. This is to avoid damage, during shipping, at that sensitive area.

SOME CUSTOMER COMMENTS ABOUT THIS ITEM:
We received the pet house. Thank you very much, it is exactly what we wanted for our “stray” cat. It is sturdy and well made. It was very easy to attach the roof, and add some straw. We debated on what was the best way to get him to try it out, but we didn’t need to do anything. We set his food right outside the door and within a couple of hours he was inside all curled up. The next day was rainy and he spent the most of the day inside. It seems to be a hit! Thank you for a great product.
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with your product. I have been caring for two feral kittens (now 6 months old). I put your shelter in my enclosed porch (the porch does not have heat) and I put a piece of carpet in the shelter and covered that with straw. I wish I could send a picture to show you how much they love it. It has been very cold here lately in NJ and they cozy up in the corner and seem very comfortable. I lifted the roof and took a picture. Thank you again for a great product!
