    When my husband built the shelter for the cats, we thought they would be inside the shelter. But. cats be cats. and cats do what they want.

    Wait until it rains and they might see the benefit of going inside their new shelter. :fingerscrossed:

    A cathouse just has the wrong ring to it. Cats prefer to shelter under buildings, porches and decks. I'm sure the cats have figured out all the best places. A cathouse seems a last resort. Catnip smelling paint perhaps?

    Eileen, during winter, and sometimes during summer storms, all three cuddle inside the shelter. Otherwise, the shelter is just a resting place. My husband is so happy when one, two, or all three cats go inside. His efforts have not been in vain.
    Jerry, catnip smelling paint? That's just what we need--three cats on a high. They are weird enough without catnip. I don't even want to think about them on catnip!:smt119

    Fine Mart, you come and handle three cats on a drug high! I'll stay safely inside the house with a first-aid kit.
    Since when was "interesting" a synonym for "bleeding your life out"?

    Well it could be like peoplle who use weed ! Either ornery or big lovable pussycats ! In my case,, the two cats have to put up with a few dogs who out weigh them by a bunch !! Might come in handy for my cats !
