This Combo Cat House & Feeder has everything you need to provide for your cat or a visiting stray cat.  If you are going to start providing food for a stray or feral cat, then offering the COMBO would definately be something to consider.  Here's why.   Many times, a stray cat will show up at one's door step.  Kind-hearted folks will begin to feed the visitor to be of help.  Cats will, of course, accept the food and begin to routinely come back for more.  After a cat feeds, it usually leaves to go back to the spot where it sleeps.  Those areas are sometimes under sheds, abandoned structures, gaps between large rock boulders, etc. ..... usually tight, compact areas that they need to squeeze into.  Once settled in, they'll curl up into a ball and use their own body heat to keep warm.

When cold weather comes, the kind-hearted person will begin to consider getting a house for them to live in too.  Because cats are creatures of habit, it can sometimes be hard to break them of the routine of eating and then going back to their spot for sleeping.  They'll show up again and again for the food.  However, getting them to accept a shelter for sleep can be a bit more challenging. Introducing a new "sleeping" shelter may simply look like, to them, an unfamiliar object that they may need to be cautious of.  From a cat's perspective, this new object might be something that is competing for their food 

This is why the COMBO Cat House/Feeder is such a good choice.  You are introducing the cat to both at the same time.  As they are certain to return for their feeding, they can also investigate the housing you are offering them.  They are trusting the feed area and the house area will also be trusted as well.  The COMBO helps make the transition from their old sleep area, to the one you're offering, much easier.

There's alot of pride when you provide a special shelter for them. This cat house/feeder is made entirely of CEDAR. Cedar is a great insulator. The house comes 99% ASSEMBLED (see NOTE below) and is secured together with BOTH nails and screws .. making it very DURABLE. The interior is warm and the corners have been sealed to keep out drafts. The floor is elevated off the ground which will keep the occupants warm & dry.  Finally, we have added a FIBERGLASS SHINGLED ROOF for added protection and warmth. The roof is angled backward, allowing for water run off. The entire roof pivots back, allowing for quick inspection and cleaning of the interior.  NOTE: For shipping-safety reasons, the 2 lag bolts that hold the roof on for pivoting are removed for shipping. Upon arrival, customer will need to reinsert and tighten the bolts down so that the pivot action will work. Otherwise, the roof will be a lift off type. This is to avoid damage, during shipping, at that area.

 

OPTIONAL FEATURES:  At the bottom of this page will be a way to choose options for your house.  When selecting an option below, simply check-mark the option and then type "yes" or "y" or "1" in the drop down box.  The option & amount will be added.  You can add/remove options as you wish. 

CEDAR SLATTED ROOF:  NEW OPTION added this year.  For $49, we'll be happy to send the house with a cedar slatted roof versus our traditional fiberglass shingled roof.  In the past, some customers have had us create this roof type because they felt it offered a more decorative look to their cat house. This option can be important if living in a neighborhood that has specific residential guidelines.  The cedar slats are secured to the roof, one-by-one, while using a special exterior poly glue that bonds everything together.  The ends and seams have been caulked/sealed for weather protection.  It is all ready for outdoor use when it arrives (right click for larger image).

INSULATION: For $39, we will be happy to insulate the interior of this house. The insulation would consist of additional white styrofoam with reflective lining & interior wood panels on all sides and the floor. Please note that by adding insulation, the interior volume will decrease by approx 1" on each wall.... see measurements. 

MEDIUM: non-electric Heating Mat: For $29 per item, we'll be happy to include this amazing non-electric heating pad.  The way it works is that it stores in your pet's own body heat and then reflects it back to them .... keeping them warm.   Some materials (like blankets and carpet) will simply take in heat and then that warmth eventually dissipates.  With this heating mat, the mylar insulate padding inside stores that heat .... keeping your pet warm and cozy.  We tested the heating pad ourselves by placing one on an office chair.  In a matter of minutes, we noticed the warmth underneath.  The mats are also designed to repel moisture.  Another plus is that these mats are safe to use with bedding materials such as STRAW, pine shavings, and cedar shavings.   The non-electric mat is made of a soft fleece cover, plush inner reflective padding, double-sided and reversible for optimum use, and machine washable.  Mat size measures approx 21"L x 17"W x 1.25"thick.  The mat is pliable and conforms nicely to all shelters.  1 is best fit for MEDIUM size shelters.  However, 2 mats conform nicely in all LARGER shelters.   Click here for extra mats. 

Electric Cord PORT/COVER:  for $19, we will create a hole for you to be able to feed an electrical cord into or out of your shelter.  The hole will be for a standard size, 3-prong, exterior cord (approx 1.5"),  A plastic insert, with cover cap, is also installed to give a finished, professional look.  The cover cap also helps to eliminate drafts. 

Aromatic CEDAR SHAVINGS BEDDING: $15 for approx @10lbs of cedar shavings. Shavings will cover approximately 2 cubic feet.......a sufficient amount for this size house with some extra. This bedding is great for extra odor control, it naturally helps keep fleas and insects away, and cedar oil helps promote shiny coats. Shavings provide a bed that will help keep pets warm. 

PINE SHAVINGS BEDDING: $12 for approx @10lbs of pine shavings. Shavings will cover approximately 2 cubic feet.......a sufficient amount for this size house with some extra. This bedding is great for extra odor control.  Some feel pine shavings offer a softer, fluffier shaving.  Pine wood shavings have a fragrant, natural aroma, which helps mask unpleasant odors.

STRAW BEDDING: $9 for approx 1 leaf of straw (1-2 refillings). Straw will cover approximately 3 cubic feet ....... a sufficient amount for this size house. This bedding is great for all small animals.  It is low cost and covers a wide area.  It is clean and dust fee.  Also, straw is a very warm bedding because it traps air. 

  

POLY-DOOR with removable flap:  for $29 we will install a poly-plastic door entrance.  It acts as a doorway flap to block wind, rain, etc. The flap can be temporarily removed, if needed, to help your pet become accustomed to entering/exiting.  After a period of time, just snap flap back in place.  The flap is opaque which will allow light inside as well as letting your pet to see outside. When a POLY DOOR is ordered, the entrance is poly door shaped.

HOUSE NAME PLATE: $15 for an @ 3" x 12" name plate that can be secured to the house. The name plate can be the pet's name, etc or some cute saying that will give visitors a chuckle. The longer the name (or letters) the smaller the font size. The letters are professionally typeset fonts which are latex laminated to a wooden board. The latex laminate allows it to withstand weather. Plate is shipped unattached so that customer can determine where it should be placed. Screws provided.

CEDAR SEAL: for $40 we will seal the entire outside and underside of the house (the interior is not sealed and is kept natural). Cedar is one of the best woods to use for outdoor items. It is a wood that can expand and contract with warm and cold weather. It is a great insulator. After a period of time, cedar will begin to lighten to a silvery gray. However, if you want to keep cedar looking its TAN color longer, then a sealant is recommended. We use a product called CLEAR WOOD FINISH. It is low odor, water soluble, and penetrates deep into the pours of the cedar.......providing a clear coat of protection and preserving the tan color.  If you do order the cedar seal option, any small accessories ordered will also be sealed.  However, this does not include PLATFORMS ..... those have a separate charge ..... click here to order PLATFORMS with sealer option. 

One way ESCAPE DOOR w/ flap: for $19 we will install a small 5x5 escape door (w/ door flap) located on the side opposite the entrance and toward the back. Sometimes customers want an emergency escape route for their cats.......especially for houses being used outdoors. If the main entrance is blocked by a predator, the escape door is a quick exit to safety. This is popular for those getting a house for a Feral Cat.  The escape door is used from the inside but no animal can use it from the outside.  

WINDOW: for $19 we will install a small 3"x5" window which will be located on the front of the house...opposite side of the entrance. Sometimes customers want their pet to be able to see outside while in the house. The window is made of strong plexiglass and is secured into the window area. Wood trim surrounds the window for a decorative, finished look.

 

          ITEMS TO ELEVATE YOUR HOUSE or FEEDER

3"RISER FEET: $12 for 4, three-inch tall feet that will elevate your house off the ground 3".  Elevating your house or feeder is highly recommended.  As rain hits the ground by your cat shelter, it will cause water to "splatter" up against the structure.  Having risers will help keep the bottom part (and underside) of your shelter dryer.  The wooden blocks are solid 4x4 chunks.  

6"RISER FEET: $19 for 4, six-inch tall feet that will elevate your house off the ground 6".  The blocks are 4x4 chunks with decorative trim on the bottom edge. The feet come unattached and need to be attached from the inside ......very easy to do, screws provided, holes pre-drilled. 

RISER PLATFORM BASE (free shipping): $99 for a platform that will raise the shelter up approx 3" off the ground.  The platform is just a little wider & longer than the base of the shelter and only serves to elevate the shelter.  It is a more decorative version of RISERS but in platform form. It also may provide a more stable underbase than risers.  There is no extra room for cat lounging,  For that, you would need to consider the platforms below. 

LARGE-XL-JUMBO Platform Deck SHORT LEGS ...... for all size shelters (free shipping): $179.95 for a 1 ft tall cedar platform deck that measures approx 35”long x 35”wide. The legs are made from 4x4 pine posts and are very sturdy.  This platform elevates the house 1 foot off the ground and can provide a level of safety for your cats.  It also prevents rain from splattering off the ground and onto the shelter in addition to keeping it out of accumulating snow.   Attaching leg posts is all that is required and is very easy to do.  Detailed instructions and hardware included. Shelter can be secured to platform, if desired.  JUMBO HOUSE IN PICTURE NOT INCLUDED.  If needing platform to be CEDAR SEALED, click here to order PLATFORMS with sealer.
