This is my 3rd attempt at a house for my backyard feral, he wasnt keen on the others. I was beyond impressed at how easy and simple it was to set up. No tools needed. It's sturdy, well insulated and the heated bed looks very comfortable. It's low profile too so it's not obvious a cat is in there. I think he'll love it as he loves his heat pad. I left off the flap to allow him ease of access for now, will likely add it once/if he settles in. We shall see but eitherway this is a great cat house and you don't have to build it in a freezing garage like I had to with my last one. This ease of set up and affordability saves lives.
