NO ASSEMBLY--- This house is great for any cat but especially Ferals and stubborn cats that won't go through a door flap. One opening is unobstructed and then the other opening is a regular cat door so as not to cause excessive heat loss. We have found that even though some cats will not go through a door flap to get into a house they have no problem going through a flap to make a quick escape out of the house so this works out great. The house measures 21"x21"x19"H on the outside and 17"x17"x14"H on the inside and will fit 2 average size cats that are willing to curl up together. House has 2" insulated walls, 2" insulated top and 2" insulated floor. Beware of pet houses with thin walls, they are not very warm. The base of the house is treated lumber and can be place right on the ground and will not rot or decay and Termites or bugs will not eat it. The floor is covered with vinyl and house includes straw bedding. The top lifts off for easy access. This house is heated by a 100 watt infrared heatlamp controlled by an adjustable thermostat mounted on the ceiling. The heatlamp is recessed into the ceiling so it is out of the way and has an aluminum grille for Kitty's protection, also has a 20 ft cord. House is painted with Behr Deckover a very durable paint.

We do not guarantee that every cat will use one of our houses, though most do the customer has to determine if their cat will use a house BEFORE ORDERING. It takes a lot of patience and usually some cold weather to get a cat to use a house for the first time, but once they do they will be in it all the time. If you need multiple houses we suggest ordering one and trying it out first. DO NOT ORDER ONE OF OUR OUTDOOR CAT HOUSES FOR INDOOR USE, IT WILL NOT WORK
As for getting the cat to use the House, it takes a lot of patience and some coaxing. People have the most success using canned cat food because it has strong smell, especially fish. What you do is place the food right in front of the Pod door for several days. Then move the food right inside the door propping the flap open inward so the cat has to stick its head inside the Pod to eat. Do this for several days, then move the food all the way inside the Pod with the flap. At first the cat might just go in eat the food and leave but he will remember this as a place to go when he needs shelter.
