Have an outdoor cat? This all-weather refuge looks cozy enough to curl up in on a blustery day.

It’s been pretty wet and cool in Catster HQ’s hometown lately, and we’ve found it almost impossible to coax our cats outside to get some fresh air, never mind hang out with some of the local wildlife. That’s why we’re thinking about buying this heated outdoor cat house from Hammacher Slemmer, because the dinky little all-weather refuge looks cozy enough to curl up in on a blustery day.


Park this waterproof shack on your patio or in your backyard, plug it in, and wait for the 20-watt heater in the house’s floor to warm up. Then gently shove your kitty toward it. With luck, she’ll quickly figure out that the radiant heat makes this a comfortable, dry spot to spend the day. And since it’s big enough for cats up to 25 pounds, maybe she can invite a feline friend over for some snuggle time.
