A cosy cat house for outdoors or indoors

Whether indoors or outdoors, cats adore having cosy retreats for relaxation and stress relief. A cat house provides your pet with a protected space to unwind and sleep peacefully. At zooplus, we offer a range of models suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, tailored to their construction and materials These cat houses not only serve as cosy hideaways but also enhance the visual appeal of your cat's environment.

Outdoor cat house for balcony, terrace and garden

If your cat has access to balconies, terraces or outdoor areas, an outdoor cat house is essential for offering protection from the elements. It should be constructed from weather-resistant materials to withstand cold, moisture and sunlight effectively. At zooplus, our range includes insulated and winter-proof cat houses designed to provide a safe and cozy retreat for your cat, even in outdoor environments. Ensure your cat stays comfortable and protected outdoors with our durable and weather-resistant cat houses.

Indoor cat house for the apartment

Even indoors, cats enjoy having retreats where they can relax and observe their surroundings. Providing a quiet space away from humans and other animals is crucial for their daily routine.

When choosing an indoor cat house, place it strategically so your cat can comfortably observe its environment. This encourages your cat to use the house for playing, napping, sleeping or simply keeping a watchful eye on their surroundings. Create a cozy and enriching environment for your cat with an indoor cat house placed thoughtfully within your home.

What is a cat house good for?

Have you ever left an empty box in your apartment? Chances are your cat quickly claimed it as its own cosy spot. Cats are naturally drawn to caves and hideouts of all kinds. Therefore, most cats will eagerly accept a cat house as their personal retreat.

If your home lacks other hiding places like a house on a scratching post or a special cat cave, a cat house provides an excellent alternative. At zooplus, we offer not only decorative indoor cat houses but also winter- and weather-proof options designed for outdoor use.

Where should you place a cat house?

Since the cat house will primarily be used for resting and sleeping, it's crucial to choose its placement wisely:

  • Indoor Cat House: Place it in quiet corners of rooms, as many cats prefer peaceful environments. However, since cats often like to be near their human companions, consider placing it in a room where you spend a lot of time.
  • Elevated Position: If possible, place the cat house in an elevated position. This not only helps your cat feel more secure but also allows them to survey their surroundings comfortably.
  • Outdoor Cat House: For outdoor use, ensure the cat house is weather-resistant. Opt for specially insulated houses designed for winter use to keep your cat warm and protected during colder months.

Provide your cat with a comfortable and secure retreat, whether indoors or outdoors, by choosing the right cat house and location.

How big should a cat house be?

When selecting a cat house, ensure it offers enough space for your cat to:

  • Comfortably Enter and Exit: The entrance should be easy to access without strain.
  • Turn Around: Provide enough room inside for your cat to turn around comfortably.
  • Curl Up: Enough space for your cat to curl up and feel snug.
  • Groom Itself: Space to groom without feeling cramped.

While the cat house should be spacious enough for these activities, it shouldn't be overly large. A snug fit provides a sense of security and comfort for your cat.

How can you get a cat used to a cat house?

If your cat seems hesitant about using the cat house initially, try these tips to make it more appealing:

  • Use Treats: Place a few dry treats inside the house to entice your cat. This can help them see the house as a positive space.
  • Familiar Scents: Place clothes or blankets with your cat's familiar scent inside the house. This creates a sense of security and makes the house more inviting.
  • Catnip: If your cat enjoys catnip, try placing catnip-containing snacks or toys inside the house to attract them.
  • Give Time to Explore: Allow your cat time to explore the new house at its own pace. Be patient as they get accustomed to it.
  • Try Different Locations: If your cat doesn't seem interested, experiment with different locations around your home. Cats may have preferences for quiet spots or areas near their humans.

Remember, cats have their own preferences and some may still prefer simple things like cardboard boxes. Ultimately, the goal is to provide a comfortable and secure space where your cat feels safe and relaxed.
