The outdoor shelter has to last through cold winter snow, spring rain, and unyielding sun days, so this wooden heated cat house is a perfect choice. Cedar is durable to weather conditions and repels insects, like termites and ants, so your kitty house will last for many years. The shelter is insulated on the floor, ceiling, and four walls, providing a warm cave-like house in the winter, and a cool napping spot in the summer. There are two lounging decks, the lower one on stilts to keep the deck dry from rain and snow, and the upper deck that is perfect for sunbathing and creates a deep roof for the lower deck!

- HEATED CAT HOUSE: Add a hard/heated pad to the shelter and make it a more comfortable place for your pet during cold winter nights.
Hard/Heated Pad: Heated pad is the safest, most reliable and energy-efficient method to provide your pet with a warm, comfortable environment during the coldest of winters. It can be 9" x 12" or 12" x 18" and only burns 25 watts of power. The internal thermostat keeps the temperature at a desirable 102 degrees when in use. When you purchase a heated pad with the house, we will prepare it for the electric cord.
Extra (Escape) Door: Give your feline friend an extra exit in case predators come sniffing around. With the same dimensions as the front door, this door can be installed on the back wall, left wall or right wall when facing the front door.
Vinyl Door Flap: Vinyl that is heavy enough to act as a barrier is used. We cut the flap into strips to make it easy for the outside cat to gain entry and exit. Finally, we secure it on the inside from the top of the door frame.
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 is going.
Questions & Answers
The wood is natural and not treated. Cedar does not have to be treated but it is OK if you want to paint or stain the house. If you want to treat the house then we recommend a Thompsons water seal.
Want to place cat house on the patio that has a cover but the outlet is about 9 feet away. Can the cord on the heating pad be plugged safely into an extension cord?
The cord of the heated pad is about 60" and you can use an extension cord if it is needed. There are weatherproof extension cords for outdoor use as this one
I have a feral cat that needs to see what’s going on around him from as many angles as possible.
I’m thinking of buying the large cat shelter with platform and loft. I would want an escape door in the back. But also is there a way to put some type of window on the side so cat doesn’t feel closed in? Also how tall in the platform?
Unfortunately, we can not add a window. First platform is 16" off the ground and the second one 34" off the ground.
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 very combustible materials and we would never advise using any of those materials in conjunction with any type of heated product. You should not place any of these materials on top of the heating pads.
- Yes, we have added a left or right door as an option. Check the page again.
- This house can accommodate two cats only if they are small and do not fight each other.
The roof of this cat house can be easily removed by taking out a couple of screws. Then you may clean the house.
Yes. You can easily remove the round door inserts if your cat does not like it.
I need to k off the ground but wher do I put the food
I need to protect cats from predators and a taller house would protect them from dogs and coyotes. Neighbors dogs could get into one this height so I need one taller and coyotes are a continual issue.
We can make the legs as long as you want for extra fee, but the house would be unstable.
Can you make the entry round?
Unfortunately, we do not offer round entry doors.
Can you make the entry smaller? maybe 7 x 7 Can you make a small hole in the lower far end of house that i run an electric cord? thx
Can you make the entry smaller? maybe 7 x 7- Yes. It would be extra $15.00
Can you make a small hole in the lower far end of house that i run an electric cord? - Yes. If you order a heating pad the hole is free of charge. If the heating pad is not ordered the hole is extra $10.00
Would it be possible to have this prepared to accept an electric heating pad cord without ordering the heating pad? (I already have a heating pad from the house that I am replacing this with.) If so, how do I indicate this with my order? Thanks!
We can make a hole for the electric cord of your own heating pad. It will be an extra $12.00. Please write in the comments section at checkout that you need a hole and we will send you an invoice for the extra fee.
