HOW TO MAKE OUTSIDE PET “HOUSES”

Styrofoam Cooler of the correct size for your cat to lay and turn around in
A knife or Saw ( A razor knife works really well )
A Phillips Screw Driver
4 3″ Deck Screws or Equivalent ( The screws are best to be for wood so they have a large grove pattern )
An old towel, or optionally a cat bed heater

Steps in making your cat house:

First start by cutting a mouse hole shape in one of the small sides of the cooler. You don’t want this hole to be any bigger than your cat needs to squeeze through it. The smaller the hole the warmer it will be.

Cat insulated cat house outdoor cat house shelter for outdoor cat
from the cold. What you will need:

Styrofoam Cooler of the correct size for your cat to lay and turn around in
A knife or Saw ( A razor knife works really well )
A Phillips Screw Driver
4 3″ Deck Screws or Equivalent ( The screws are best to be for wood so they have a large grove pattern )
An old towel, or optionally a cat bed heater

If you bought a cat bed heater you will want to place a small hole ( big enough for the cord to push through from the inside ) in one of the large sides at the bottom furthest away from the front of the house ( where the door hole was cut ).

Now either put the heater into the cooler or, if you didn’t get a heater, place the old towel or other scrap cloth in the bottom of the cooler.

Place the top on the cooler and secure it with the deck screws on all four corners so it can’t be blown off by wind or knocked off by dogs and other nosy animals.

Place your new cat house outside where your cat will see it, preferably in a place your cat already likes to sleep.  It is also advisable to place the door of the cat house away from the direction of the wind to maximize the heating ability of the house.
