For tonight the
weather advisory is for 80% snow and bitter cold temperatures, this winter
storm makes it difficult for the feral and stray cats to find shelter. One of my neighbors gave me a KH outdoor
heated cat house and I am setting it up on cement blocks in area that will provide
a wind block.
Normally I would
set up the outdoor cat shelter in an area way from human traffic but the
directions stated that is was not advisable to plug the electrical cord for the
heated pad into an extension cord.
I needed to set the cat house up on patio, close to the electrical outlet. This of course is not the best location
because feral cats prefer to be hidden.
the feral cat will enter the house out of desperation and will find that the heated
bed will provide them with warm comfortable heat and shelter from the wind.

What I like
about the KH outdoor heated cat house is the two doors; an entrance and exit
which keep an outdoor cat safe.If a
predator comes to the front door they can exit out the back.
and exit also has a clear plastic door flap which keeps snow, wind and rain
voltage heating pad is not hot to the touch; the heating unit responds to the
pressure of the cat, warms the bed when cat lies on the pad.
