Large cat shelter
There are certain things that cats in general like and dislike. Understanding what it is that your personal cat likes and enjoys is one of the key elements to preparing a good outdoor cat shelter. Of course it is impossible to say that every large cat shelter that is constructed outdoors needs to be made of wood and be a certain height, length and width. We all know that cats love to be comfortable and if you build with this idea foremost in your mind then you can't go too wrong. Cats also like to be up high so if your large cat shelter is elevated this is a plus in most cases. You can always cover your construction material (be it wood or otherwise) with carpet, rug or even a natural rope, like sisal. This helps to give it a more plush appearance and feel. Cats also like to climb and play so if you can provide your cat with a play area inside youror outside near its cat shelter, the happiness of your feline is all but assured. Of course there is always the exception to the rule and it is true that some cats would much prefer to laze around all day than to have to climb or exert any physical energy. If cats are not exercised regularly though they tend to get overweight and that can have very serious consequences later on in their life. Cats who are overweight are much more susceptible to joint problems among other things. Having your large outdoor cat shelter insulated, especially if it is very hot or cold in your area, is another way to ensure the happiness of your cat and its acceptance of its new shelter. Insulation helps to make the temperature inside the large cat shelter much more pleasant as whether it is hot outside or cold, the temperature inside the cathouse remains pretty much unchanged.
