Contrary to what most pet owners believe, a large house for your outdoor pet is not to their best advantage. If you want to get the most out of an outdoor house, make certain that is isn't too big for your pet. It should be just large enough for the pet to be able to enter and turn around. Animals aren't like people. They prefer small places for a reason. Their body provides the heat to warm their space. If the space is too large, they cannot warm it.
This house is the perfect size for up to a 10 pound cat.
The body of the House is 15x12x12 inches.
I make my Outside Pet Furniture to be weather proof, affordable and easily maintained. There are no "extras" that make it difficult to paint. All joints and seams are caulked and tested to make certain moisture cannot penetrate.
I offer all of the Outside Pet Furniture unfinished or finished. If I finish it for you, there will be one coat of primer and three coats of Exterior Grade Paint carefully applied that will keep the House weather proof for many years.
Most of my Outside Furniture is constructed of 1/2 inch plywood. Therefore, I do not offer it to be stained and varnished. If you order yours unfinished, you will see that I have used wood filler to make certain the outside is smooth and blemishes are covered, and the inside and outside is thoroughly caulked with waterproof caulk. The entire unit will be sanded and thus prepared for you to paint. I strongly recommend that you use Kilz primer and a high quality paint and follow the directions carefully, putting no less than 3 coats on.

No electricity available? If you have a microwave, you can help to keep your outside cat or dog warm when the weatherman warns us to bring our pets inside. This bite resistant plastic disk is filled with non-toxic Thermopol which undergoes a physical change when heated. While other conventional products would be cooling, the disk actually generates extra heat as the Thermopol changes. 5 to 8 minutes in a microwave will provide up to 12 hours of heat.

NEW! STAYWELL MAGNETIC PET DOOR! You can make sure only your Kitty can get into the HOUSE!
Cat protection from predators.
This house provides security against intrusion by strays without requiring batteries or house current! The secret? The collar key itself is a strong magnet that actually unlocks the flap allowing access by your pet but not by other pets or strays.This unit comes with a collar and a tiny magnet that "unlocks" the door. A 4-way lock is also included which allows the pet door to be set for 'in only' and 'out only' in addition to the normal 'locked' and 'open'.
This size door is good for cats or dogs up to 15 pounds.
