Nope its not a birdhouse this time !
I have 4 cats and they were itching to go outside but because of heavy traffic in my area i couldn,t just let them loose. After a bit of thinking i decided to add this little room next to the house .They can also go into the unfinished basement if there is a storm .

not really to private is it ?
and not the kind of girls i had in mind !

do you have to take them in and out from the house ?
i see no cat door .

it’s a solid build ,
and does the job ,
and they seem to be laid back with it .

we have 4 cats and have a fenced in back porch with a cat door in a window …my wife has been asking me to make an addition for the cats beyond the porch and this looks like the right idea… Really like the cat walks and such

Thanks Dan and John !
The main reason i built it was to keep my cats from destroying my new leather furniture and save on cat litter .
