I can’t tell you how much I want this KatKabin Outdoor Cat House in Racing Green for Bo. Svenn prefers sleeping in the loft in our garage – and why not, he has straw all around him and is safe from all the demons he’s convinced are looking from him. (My boy’s beautiful, but he’s the living definition of “high strung.”)
Bo doesn’t want to miss out on a single thing, so he doesn’t like hiding away in the garage. He wants to be in on everything that goes on. If someone comes in the house, he wants to say “Hi.” If someone goes out of the house, he wants to “Bye.” His sociable disposition isn’t anything to worry about when the weather’s warm. I have an area on the carport that’s all his – he has a little plastic igloo (up on a shelf) he loves to curl up in. There are also several chairs he prefers.
But when the weather’s cool, I worry that he doesn’t stay warm enough. I put some straw and a baby blanket in his plastic igloo and covered it with a blanket. When I put my arm in there, I’m amazed at how warm it actually feels. He loves it in there.
I really love this KatKabin Outdoor Cat House, though. It gorgeous!
From the Manufacturer:
The feline equivalent of a kennel, the KatKabin is an innovative and exciting new product that has already proved to be a big hit with cats. The KatKabin is a light, tubular outdoor shelter that will appeal to the most discerning cats – whether an independent tabby or an aristocratic pedigree.
The KatKabin can be placed in the garden, on the patio or balcony, ensuring that pets do not have to wander far from home to find comfort and security. This is important when so many cats are lost or stolen every week. When outside and unable to return to their homes, cats often sleep under cars or get inside sheds and empty buildings, sometimes getting trapped with no access to food or water.
Guaranteed for five years, the KatKabin is finished with a special, non-chemical material that will not fade in sunlight. It will stand securely on any surface and is supplied with a front doorflap.
The new range of funky finishes includes exiting metallic colours that change as they catch the light – available in mellow green/yellow autumn shades and sparkling blue/red. These new finishes expand the existing colour options of Cobalt Blue, Starlet Red, Racing Green and Chocolate Brown.
Developed to withstand extremes of temperature and guaranteed for five years, the KatKabin is made from the strongest materials and is finished with a special, non-chemical material that will not fade in sunlight. In addition, the KatKabin has a special polystyrene floor that adds extra insulation, keeping the cat warm in the coldest weather. The KatKabin will stand securely on any type of ground. It comes with an optional clip-on front door.
It has holes for air ventilation and the round shape assists the air to circulate inside. Warm air is not trapped at the top as in other shapes but circulates easily around. The KatKabin measures 26.4 x 19.2 inches high to the top of the ears. It weighs 13lbs and is supplied in a strong outer carton with handles for easy transportation. To wash, just slide off the two cat-shaped ends and remove the flooring. Rinse with hot water and a mild detergent such as washing-up liquid. Dry thoroughly and replace the ends, replacing the flooring.
This lovely deep green KatKabin will look good in any yard, large or small, town or country. Optional Winter Warmer can be inserted into all KatKabins. This is a washable interior body covering for cold Winter days and nights to keep your cat warm and very cosy.
Optional Kat Duvet is the perfect luxurious accessory for your KatKabin. Especially designed for the purpose, it sits snugly inside the KatKabin making it even cosier for your pets. The cover can be quickly and easily removed. It can be machine-washed hot, to kill dust mites and other insects. When not in use inside your KatKabin, it makes the perfect, soft bed for your pet indoors.
Bo has convinced me – he has to have this wonderful KatKabin Outdoor Cat House – Racing Green!
