Katkabin Outdoor Cat Shelter
A Feral Cat Care Provider from Suisun City, CA – Verified Buyer
I bought this shelter for a FeLV and FIV positive stray cat in my neighborhood, who I feed and take care of, because I couldn't bring him indoors without exposing my own cats to his illnesses. He only used the shelter when it rained, which was why I purchased it to begin with. This shelter has several good points: 1) Lightweight. 2) No assembly required. 3) Easily cleaned. 4) Not as expensive as some wooden cat shelters. On the other hand, there are several drawbacks to this type of shelter, especially for use with completely outdoor cats: 1) No windbreak, unless used with the door, which none of my outdoor cats liked. 2) Does not come with insulation, so this shelter isn't good for very cold weather conditions, unless you purchase the additional winter warmer. 3) The pad that comes with the shelter will get dirty and wet very easily, so it isn't suitable for use with true feral cats, even though it is washable. 4) The door hangs up sometimes if you use straw for bedding material, like I did, because straw still insulates when it is wet, unlike fabric or foam insulation. In summary, if you want a lightweight, simple shelter for occasional use by a single cat, this shelter will suffice. If you want to provide a cold weather shelter for a feral cat, you would be better off checking the Internet for several inexpensive, do-it-yourself ideas for shelters.
Love this Unique-looking Cat House!

We have two dogs, two cats, and now a stray cat! My husband put a cardboard box on our front porch with a blanket, and the cat stuck around (we were feeding him, too:) At first, he only hissed and wouldn't let us come close to him...now, he meows and won't let us stop petting him! We thought about building a house for him, but found this one online and let me tell you, Scar is livin' the dream!!! He's a pretty big cat and looks a little squished inside of it, but he uses it all the time and obviously LOVES it! I highly recommend this cat house to any and all cat owners!
feral cats love it

My feral cat is very suspicious of anything I set outside but wonderfully settled into this house after a couple of days. Initially I bought this - http:superblog.cothe-kitty-tube-outdoor-cat-house-review - but he never really used it so that was a waste of money. I tried enticing it with cat nip but he only stays inside for about a minute or so at a time before heading back out. Now that I think about it, it's because this kitty house has a second door whereas the other one does not which gives him a trapped feeling. I'm really happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone! It's big enough to even double as a dog house.

We bought this for the stray kitty who likes to hang around our house and is a little bit shy to come in in our lovely home. We were really worried she might be cold during the fall and winter, and we bought this lovely house to keep her warm. She loves it! If she's not eating outside she is always there sleeping or just hanging out. We are really happy with it!

My outside cats love this house. They take turns between it and another one we have. I have it one the porch and the grey cat sits and watches the world go by. Pros: No putting it together, it is a complete unit when you take it out of the box. Cons: None that I can think of

Love that product came in well protected box, all put together , just had to put the door in place, Took a few days for the cats to get used to it, but now they take turns and like the fact that they can see through the door... It is really nice , Has a soft sleeping pad in side... my cats give it 5 stars!
Mom's cat loves it!
Kenda from Texas – Verified Buyer
I got this for my Mother's cat. She loves it! She walked right in and claimed it as her own! ...Held up great during the summer storms too!
Hope They Love It!
Penelope from Creedmoor, NC – Verified Buyer
The house arrived as pictured except with no door. Those had to be ordered separately. The outdoor cats have walked through it, so hopefully they will get use to it and use it. Once they do, I'll add one door at a time.
A joy to behold
Kacey from North Myrtle Beach, SC – Verified Buyer
For a few weeks, my cat Sparky acted as if the forest green KatKabin Outdoor Cat House (which is on the front porch) did not exist. But this morning I opened the front door at 4 a.m. and to my delight I saw a bit of fur sticking out of the little house. I'm so glad she will be sleeping there as the weather gets cooler. The only thing I am not krazy about is the foam pad inside the kabin. After I took it out to examine it, I had a hard time re-placing it neatly inside, it just kept poking out. The cover on it does not fit well. But it doesn't matter, because I put a soft towel on top of it that Sparky likes better.

Alan from Washington, DC – Verified Buyer
My original plan to purchase this product for one the feral cats that I am feeding. But my own cat loves the katKabin so much, he moved himself into the KatKabin right away. I guess, I will probably have to order another one for the outdoor cat. I will give it a 5-star rating.
