Attention, cat lovers!!! During a blustery, freezing night, I can sleep knowing the homeless cats that hang out in our backyard have a place to warm their paws, and stay out of the wind and snow. This heated outdoor cat house has two flapped exits allowing the cats to escape out of one side if a potential threat approaches the cat house from the other side.
Our homeless cats love sleeping in this cat house almost all day. I am Soooooo thankful that K&H Pet Products developed this cat house. There is definitely a need for it, and they clearly thought out its design.
A couple of recommendations from what we observed and worked for us:
The cats initially were sniffing around the exits to make sure nothing was lurking just inside the cat house that they couldn't see.
Solution to Observation #1
To introduce the cat house to the homeless cats, we placed their food bowl inside the cat house. With the exit flaps down, the cats could not smell the food very well though. We therefore used a couple of jumbo office binder clips to keep both exit flaps up all the way for the first day. Three or four hours after securing both exit flaps up, the first cat walked in, settled down, and that night, the others followed!
I think the cats' second initial fear was feeling vulnerable to external threats while being inside the cat house.
Solution to Observation #2
Positioning the cat house against a wall seemed to also help because "hugging" a wall made the cat house feel less out in the open, where it could be attacked from any side.
