Make it fun and safe for your favorite felines to play outdoors all year round with this insulated cat house on stilts! The shelter is designed for outside use to be raised off the ground for better protection against cold, rain, and snow weather conditions. It has a roomy lounging deck under a wide porch roof that makes it the perfect spot for your kitty to catch some warm sun rays and a cat nap, and the wide roof and thermal-ply insulation ensure that your pet stays snug and dry! The house is fast and easy to assemble, using ordinary household tools, and is designed to house one average-size cat! Your stray, feral, or outside cat will enjoy the 16-inch high platform with a deck, and the generous roof will protect the doorway opening from dripping rain and melting snow. If you like it but need a bigger shelter, check our larger cat houses for stray and feral cats.

- INSULATION: Thermal-ply insulation lines the floor, walls, and ceiling of the cat house interior
- PROTECTIVE PORCH ROOF: Wide and deep, the roof covers the lounging deck for protection against rain, snow, and bright sun rays

Extra (Escape) Door: Give your feline friend an extra exit if predators come sniffing around. With the same dimensions as the front door, this door can be installed on the back, left, or right walls when facing the front door.
Vinyl Door Flap: Vinyl that is heavy enough to act as a barrier is used. The vinyl flaps are solid (not cut into strips) and secured inside from the top of the door frame by a Velcro strip.
Round Door Insert: If your cat likes to squeeze through holes in fences or find an isolated corner to curl up in, she may enjoy this round door style. The insert has a 6" round opening and may be easily removed if the cat is too big to fit through it or just does not like it.
Shipping: Ships from Canada via FedEx Ground. Transit time is 3-7 business days, depending on where it goes.
Questions & Answers
The wood is natural and not treated. For maximum wood protection against the weather, it should be treated with at least a water seal. You may paint or stain the house as well. If you want to treat the house, we recommend a Thompsons water seal.
I see in the FAQs, you can customize the door size. Can the entry door and the escape door be 6" x 6" square instead of having a 6" round insert? Also, I don't see any way to add the additional fee for the custom-sized doors. How do I pay for that?
The smallest we can make the door is 6" x 8". The only way to be 6" x 6" is by the Round Door Insert. The Price of each custom-size door is an extra $35. If you want to order them, we will send you an extra invoice after you place the order for the house.
If I were to purchase this house is the pad included I do not see it?
No. This cat house comes without a heating pad. You should buy it separately.
We have average wither snowfall in excess of 200" and think we might need longer platform legs to maintain cat's access to doorways
We can add 8" more to the legs for an extra $35.00. If you want extended legs, just place your order and write in the comment area you want extended legs. We will send you an invoice for the extra charge.
The drop-down for requesting an extra door stated "Back Wall." Can the extra door be placed on the side wall so I can put the back wall against the house?
A side door is available only for the bigger outdoor cat house with a platform and extended roof
Is the back door directly opposite from the front door?
The extra back door option goes on the back wall with the door opening on the opposite side of the front door wall.
Unfortunately, this is not possible.
Needs to be 18 inches off the ground. Thanks.
The platform is 16" high.
I need the house to be roomy enough for two adult cats
No, this cat house is not large enough for two adult cats. You should consider the bigger one:
but, we can not promise it will be enough for your cats because it depends on their size.
Hello—is it possible to install a chip-activated cat door?
Unfortunately, we do not know anything about these doors and can not tell if you can install them on this house.
I live in the windiest county in my state (some days we have very high winds) and I am concerned that the door flaps will not keep the wind away from the cat, especially during the winter months with blowing and drifting snow. I intend to keep the house on my deck (my stray loves laying on the deck) and close to the house to help with the wind; however, it can still get very windy. Will your door flaps keep the wind off of the cat or do you have any other recommendations? Thank you.
In our opinion, the door flap will give more protection against the wind compared to a house without a flap.
i want to buy for my sister which live in canada
Yes, we can ship this cat house to Canada and the shipping would be free. Just confirm you want to purchase it and we will send you an invoice.
Some of the ferals are about 15 pounds.
The interior of this outdoor house is 14"W x 13"D, but for larger cats, we would recommend the bigger outdoor cat house with extended roof
Hi, I am going to purchase the larger cat house but am not sure if I should purchase the heating pad also. Can I use an electric pad with a straw bedding? I don't want a fire but our winters are VERY cold and want kitties to be as warm as possible.
Straw, hay, and wood shavings are all combustible materials, and we would never advise using any of these materials with any heated product. It would be best not to place these materials on a heating pad.
- Yes, this outdoor cats house is waterproof.
I need to k off the ground but wher do I put the food
- It is about 13.5"-14".
