Pet House Design

Heated Cat House

This pet house was specifically designed for an outdoor cat who stayed out through snow and subzero weather. It has offset entrances to cut down on the wind and snow that can get inside.

It’s heated by a combination of carpenter’s heat tape — activated when the sensor registers 34° — and an incandescent light bulb.
