Designed for cats and small dogs. The kiln-dried cedar construction and raised base architecture allows you the freedom to keep this house indoors or outdoors. Withstands humidity and extreme temperatures and is treated with natural color stains. May be re-stained or treated like any other wood. (Not waterproof.)
As a bonus, steps along one side lead to a wonderful roof-top balcony, allowing your pet freedom to enjoy a nap in the sun or a look out the window.
"my cats love it!"
Well made, easy to put together. I put a folded bath rug on top for cushy and a purr pad in the 'cave' and they love it. It's in front of the fixed side if the patio door in the family room so they can use the 'viewing tower' to birdwatch. [THIS PRODUCT IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE AN OUTDOOR SHELTER, don't know why soemone would think that...]
"cats love it"
Received this two weeks ago. Cats were on top of it before I got it together. It has a strong wood scent to it so I put newspaper in it to absorb the scent. It's working. My sight-impared cat uses the stairs and enjoys the top shelf. Certainly is a favorite in this house.
"Not what I expected"
I got this at a great price, 33 dollars, but it's not what I expected. It's a lot smaller than it appears in the picture. The steps are about 6 inches wide and very steep. My chihuahua's would not even try to climb the steps because of them being so narrow and steep. My cats love it though but have problem getting up and down the stairs so they just jump on top. I thought it would be a little heavier than what it was too. If you want this for outside you would have to do a lot of sealing in the cracks because it is not weather proof. You may have to put some plastic around it to seal it for outdoor use. In rain or snow I doult if it would hold up for one winter unless you seal it with some sort of weather sealent. We are in the process of making wider steps for it. I am glad I got this on special because I would not buy another one for the full price. The actual bottom box width is about 20 inches wide by 15 inches tall. The measurements listed on the decription includes the size after the stairs and the lattice is put on. It is easy to put together and looks cute but I really do not believe it's worth the price.
"My cats love the view!"
My family bought the Room with a View during Jeffer's 12 days of Christmas Sale. We got it at a great price. This is a very well made product and it was easy to but together. My family's 3 cats love to hide and play on Room with a View.
This item is very cute and easy to assemble. We keep the cat food bowl on the upper deck and it keeps the dogs out of it. Cats love it and yes, they use those stairs. The house part took some getting used to but they nap in there now and again. I am happy with it and they are too.
""Great ""Room with a View""""
My feline family loves their new deck/hide-out. They even use the steps. I was pleasantly surprised that the item is made of wood and not coorugated cardboard. I think that should be mentioned in the description. It is a somewhat pricey item
