Kitty Tube Outdoor cat shelter

Hi,

I take care of feral/alley cats, and 2 Kitty Tube outdoor shelters were donated to me by a fellow cat lover.
I just want to say that these are the BEST pre-fab cat shelters ever!
They are very sturdy and well made, they are easy to clean and come with a little awning that is very easy to set up.
They look good and the cats love them.
My very shy and 'suspicious of everything' alley cat Vladimir was exploring both of them the first night I put them out.
I filled them with straw, and the cats just took to them!
I would highly recommend them to any one who is looking for an outdoor shelter for the cats.
This is a product that will last a life time.
They are a bit pricey 109$ each, but this is the last cat shelter you will ever need to buy.

This is what they look like on my back patio.
Notice the heated water bowl and how I passed the electric cord in the clothes dryer hole. (I do not have a clothes dryer, so I figured it was a good way to run the wire inside)
