My name is Robert Schott, woodworking has always been a hobby of mine. My Cat houses came about from providing shelters for homeless cats. In the beginning they were just functional houses not much took at but they evolved into very nice Cat Homes with many different options. Most cats will use these houses but you have to be patient if the cat has never used an outdoor house before. It may take some cold weather and treats to get them to try it for the first time but once they do they will be in it all the time. For those very stubborn cats we recommend the Feral Cat Sanctuary. This shelter provides warmth and shelter but the cat is not closed in.
