How to Build an Outdoor Cat House, Insulated

Ian who has a channel on YouTube called “Jokestrap” Has taken the pains to create a step by step detailed video of himself building an insulated outdoor cat house, which is embedded below.

Ian from Jokestrap, teaches how to build an outdoor cat shelter to keep cats warm and safe in the winter or cold weather. The materials include a large plastic bin with cover, insulation foam, and spray foam crack filler. I used a power reciprocating saw but you can use a knife to cut the foam. This method is a great cheap way to keep your cats or feral cats warm in the cold weather.

Outdoor Shelters for Cats.

Even if you do not have a cat as a pet in your household, it is very important to understand and realize that there are many homeless cats. Some of them may be feral, and many of them abandoned pet cats. Whether they be feral or tame abandoned pet cats, the fact remains that cats living outdoors do need a warm, dry, windproof shelter.



Outdoor Shelters for Cats.

Housing for Outdoor Cats.

by Margaret Schill.

There are many homeless cats- some are feral cats, and some are abandoned pet cats. Whether feral or tame, abandoned pets, cats living outdoors need a warm, dry, windproof shelter. Make sure the opening is too small for a dog or coyote to fit in. All outside shelters should be off the ground several inches to keep the inside dry after rains have created puddles or to prevent a cat from getting blocked in by a heavy snowfall overnight (for regions that get snow).

For warmth, an outdoor shelter needs to be not much larger than the size of the cat. Make sure to face the opening of the shelter away from the direction of the prevailing winds, which usually come from the northeast.

How To Add An Outdoor Cat House To Building Construction In Austin

True animal lovers will often add special things for their pants to blueprints for building construction in Austin. Just like dogs, cats will occasionally desire to explore the outdoor world, it might be a good idea to include an outdoor cat house for their comfort and security. By nature, they love to curl up and sleep, so having a sheltered space all their own in the out-of-doors will provide them with a place to recharge after the latest adventure. There are some considerations to make when designing the enclosure for your cat, and it is best to include these in any instructions the builders.

The size of an outdoor cat house will depend upon the size of your cat. In terms of building construction in Austin, most cats will not have a need for an overly large house. They would prefer something cozy, where they can sleep in comparative safety. The inside of the house should have some kind of nesting material, like old blankets and clothing, that they can burrow into to keep warm if needed. The house itself should have multiple levels, no more than two or three, for those times when a little height is necessary. If you are not sure on the exact design, plans are available online, and at pet stores.

Outdoor Cat House For Multiple Cats


Interested in an outdoor cat house for multiple cats, I got onto the internet and searched for the term on Yahoo Answers and these are few of the questions I found.

Outdoor Cat House For Multiple Cats

outdoor cat house for multiple cats

In a house of multiple cats, why do they often get into serious, fur-ripping fights?


I have four cats (Yeah, 'yeesh!' right?) in my household, three being unexpected rescues who my mother got attached to, and the fourth being an expected pet. Two of those rescued cats are six year old brothers, one tabby and one Russian Blue, while the third rescued cat is a one year old black Tiffany/Chantilly female. My fourth cat, however, is ten years old, and has lived with me the longest considering that he was a birthday present of mine in my childhood. This elder of a cat is the sheriff of our Townhouse and the guard-dog of our home, and despite being a moderate-sized ginger and white with a sweet, friendly demeanour, he chases off any animal he can tackle with a fearlessness that I fear will soon get him killed. He has shared our home with the two brothers for six years, and the new female addition has lived here for only one, but all have gotten along just fine until about eight months ago, save for a few 'arguments,' if you will. All these cats are fixed, by the way, but they are indoor-outdoor cats, too.

Now, I've been told by a cat-breeder that house cats don't set social standards between alpha males and clan-status, but I find this untrue from the behavior I've been seeing. My oldest cat [Cinnamon] has been constantly attacking the two brothers, even going as far as attacking my small one-year old female when she's simply basking in the sun. His favorite target is my Russian Blue [Onyx] who is the weakest link out of the cats because of how he rarely fights back [my young female even bosses him around, and she's half his size]. These fights are NOT playful. Fur is always in the air, small scars are sometimes left, and the screams from the fights are as bloodcurdling as two strays going at it like wolves.

Now, this charade stopped for a short period of time, until one of the larger brothers [Egypt] has been taking it upon himself to attack Cinnamon now, or even purposely provoking him into attacking him. My female [Zaiema] usually stays out of it all and watches like a deer caught in headlights. But the night that my cats were fighting in my bedroom – with the seclusion of my female – was like a dog-pile. Hair was left everywhere on my carpet and I even saw a bit of blood stained there as well. I can NOT understand these bipolar patterns they lapse into, and want to know if anyone else has ever encountered this with a house of multiple cats who have lived under the same roof for years on end, and our just now acting out so viciously. I'm not exactly sure if one is trying to take the 'throne' of the other or what, but it isn't a normal hissy-fight.


Best Answer – Chosen by Voters


I went and looked for reasons why your cats might be doing this and since you feel that its not for play I came up with these reasons.

-Sexual Aggression-which is more common in neutered cats over territory and over dominance. The article suggests scruffing to discourage cats from fighting.
-Redirected Aggression- which is because something happen to make your cat angry but they can't effect it so they turn on the cats that are around.

Methods to spot fighting
-Distraction
-Intervention (physical)
-Medication

Indoor/Outdoor Cat Enclosure?

There is this house that I might be moving into and me and my mom want to foster cats. There are two rooms on the third floor. A roof above the second story bathroom a patio roof above the first floor. I wanted to make an indoor/outdoor cat enclosure for 5 or 6 cats that could be in four areas. In where my office would be I want an enclosure on the two short sides of the room and an enclosed "cat walk" on the ceiling connecting them. On The one long side there is a closet a few inches from the corner and I want to cut a little door in the bottom and on the top shelf leading into the closet in the other room. I would want multiple platforms, ramps, etc. I want steps going up to top shelf in closet. In the other room on the long side, (Front to back of house- straight through) (The office is like the bedroom cut in half) I would have basically the same thing as the other room but one big enclosure. I would want to have a little kitty door leading onto the bathroom roof, (bathroom roof at same level as bedroom floor) with a tube leading to an enclosure on the patio roof, maybe 7ft tall and 4×4 lw…. Is this possible? How much do you think it would cost? Do you think I will need a permit? It is in a small town and the house is a twin. Any advice would help!!!


Thanks

Best Answer – Chosen by Asker.

I would almost guarantee that you will need some sort of permit. The cities I have been in even try to limit the number of housepets to just 4 or 5. A fostering setting will probably be more than they will want you to do without telling them.

The construction would depend on how much of it you can build, have a handy friend help with, or need to hire a pro to do.

Buy An Outdoor Cat House

Have you locked yourself out, in your hurry to shut the door and keep the cat in? Do you regret that you did not buy an outdoor cat house and provide a safe place for the cat when it does run out?

Buy An Outdoor Cat House

Buy An Oudoor Cat House

"One of the first things I do upon arriving home each night is throw my purse, keys and cell phone on the kitchen counter and throw some food to our outdoor cat – a stray that found its way to our home last fall and has never left. But then again, once you start feeding an outside critter they tend to stick around.

And we’re okay with it as the cat is good natured and gets along well with our dog.

Because we have an indoor cat that likes to escape from time to time, we have to be very careful when opening the back door or we’ll see a black streak make its way onto the deck and to places beyond. Thankfully she doesn’t go far and comes back within a few minutes because she is spoiled rotten, but there is always that first time.

With that in mind, I closed the door after me. But this sinking feeling came over me and I immediately turned around to re-open the door and, yep, sure thing, it was locked."

Protect The Luckless Stray Cat By Placing An Outdoor Cat House On Your Property.

In case you are planning to shelter an abandoned kitty, you need to know and accept the certainty, that it would involve more than a small financial investment. How huge this financial commitment is inclined to be, would rest solely on you, and this is where an outdoor cat house does its part.

Adding to this monetary commitment, is the requirement to have to spend time every day with your new kitten, if you want it to turn out to be physically sound.

A kitten should have quite specific extra accessories, like a, cat litter box, bed of its own, kitty furniture to climb up and down on, a high pedestal from where it can view its world, a condo type item of feline furniture where it sleep in, one or two cat scratching posts or a great deal of special areas to scratch on, other than your costly furniture, if you want it to be a contentedly domesticated, household kitten.

All cat lovers with any knowledge of feline accessories will accept that even though kitty furniture is a specialized type of product which by its features encourages the manufacturer, distributor and retailer alike, to have to work on a much larger than average profit percentage, the expense of which is rather unfortunately borne by the buyer, the kitten owner.

You do not need to waste a large amount because of these type of kitty requirements when you adopt an abandoned stray kitten by installing an outdoor cat house in your back yard.

The net is certainly the place to find an outdoor cat house, at a price so cheap that you will be astounded. You can find online websites that specialize in discount feline accessories.

On all high ranking websites that are distributors of outdoor cat houses, you most probably will find identical cat outdoor shelters, but from various makers. If you take some time, and compare the different products, you will find they all have the same features and are as durable as each other, but will vary vastly in size, looks and selling price.

The Cedar Wood Outdoor Cat House – It Is A Refuge To The Orphaned Feline

An outdoor cat house would do plenty in dealing with the expanding problem of orphaned and feral kitties that countless cities and suburban areas are going through today. Most often, it is merely that the kitty has wandered away from its own home and became lost, but many a time it is the purposeful and unkind act of some callous pet owners who have abandoned their house pet on the road side.

The recent monetary problems has made the family cat the first causality of a household displaced from their rented dwellings.

The Cedar Wood Outdoor Cat HousePutting up an outdoor cat house inside your back yard would work out to be an excellent way to support the stray and feral cats in your community. It is a know fact that stray and feral pussycats are most probably infested with fleas, or have some bad infection, that makes it very unwise to allow them to enter inside our homes.

Prior to deciding to dash off to buy an outdoor cat house to provide strays a secure and warm place to sleep in, there are several different aspects that need to be taken into consideration.

Pretty much the first thing that needs to be decided upon is the size of the cat house you intend to have. The size of the house would depend entirely on the number of stray and feral cats you want to provide a home for. If you are not sure, the advisable thing to do in this event is, to buy a fairly large sized house, that is, if you can afford it, and in case there are a number of stray cats need to be sheltered.

Nevertheless, you would have to take into consideration the space you have available in your back yard, and what percentage of it you want to give to the outdoor cat house. If you are cramped for space you may not want to buy the biggest outdoor cat house on the market. What has to be considered next is the exposure to the elements the cat outside house will have to be subject to if put in that spot inside your back yard.

Having worked out these finer details you are equipped to shop for an outdoor cat shelter.
