    I definitely didn't make 1 this fancy, did a box with the tops arched so it looked like a house & used a bowl to cut a door for her in 1 end. Unfortunately 1 year we lost power with heavy snow(I believe it was May or June) so because most of my firewood was at the pasture where my horses boarded I burned her little house & her scratching post. I think she preferred to be warm also than cold. This would be good If I ever got an animal again.

      oh wow- we lost power one year it was quite an ordeal! Yes I'm sure she preferred the warmth :) Hope you can make another one soon!

    I've been thinking about getting another kitty. This would be such a fun home for her to come home to. You're very creative.
