About This Item-Make List of Features

Product Overview

 Welcome to The New Generation of The Kitty Tube™


Introducing GENERATION 4! 


Here at The Kitty Tube™ we are always thinking about the safety and well-being of your kitty.

With that in mind, we've taken Gen 3's vapor proof barrier and lid vent cap, and added our exclusive flow-through foam layer. 

Gen 3's features + Gen 4's innovations = The driest kitty on the block!


 The new features of Generation 4 include:

l 15% thicker bottom insulation than the previous model

l  Insulation is elevated off the bottom of The Kitty Tube to keep it higher off the cold ground

l  Specialized flow-through foam layer is now placed under the bottom insulation of The Kitty Tube

l  The flow through bottom layer prevents all moisture caused by condensation from ever reaching bedding

l  The new and improved drainage system eliminates moisture out of the bottom of the shelter


The Kitty Tube is Guaranteed to keep the weather out and is simply the highest quality, best insulated outdoor cat house on the market today!

The Kitty Tube with Pet Pillow comes with:

  • Door Awning & Clear Flap Door: The door awning improves rain/snow protection and includes a gasket to eliminate any water weepage around the edges. The clear flap door is designed to repel wind and help keep heat inside the Kitty Tube during cold weather seasons. The clear flap door can be installed and removed easily without tools. NOTE: The door awning set is also available for all older model Kitty Tubes with a logo. See separate listing. 
  • Vent Cap & Gasket: The vent cap was created to eliminate moisture laden air that can build up under the top lid. This moisture laden air can cause condensation in certain temperature swings. The vent cap serves the same purpose as the vents on the roof of your own home that expel excessive moisture in the winter and heat in the summer. The vent cap is very important in maintaining a dry interior for your cat. NOTE: This cap is also sold separately to install on all older model Kitty Tubes and will greatly improve its performance. A 1½ inch hole is needed on the top dead center of the lid to install. We recommend using a standard 1½ inch hole saw to make this hole.
  • Main Insulation with Scratch Guard™: This insulation set will cover the walls, floor and ceiling of The Kitty Tube. The Kitty Tube Scratch Guard™ and vapor proof insulation is easy to remove and clean. The new Scratch Guard™ material on all interior surfaces is moisture proof, mold proof, mildew proof and bacteria proof. Deodorizing and sanitizing of the interior is now a breeze, as cat urine or spray from a male cat will not soak into the Scratch Guard™.  The Scratch Guard™ material will virtually eliminate damage from clawing and will considerably reduce condensation from forming in cold temperatures.
  • Ventilation Hand Hole Awnings: The Kitty Tube includes awnings that protect the handle/ventilator holes in the lid from rain and snow. These awnings also provide a comfortable handle when removing the lid or moving the Kitty Tube.

The Kitty Tube provides a safe, economical and maintenance free shelter for your cat. Designed for outdoor use, The Kitty Tube is fully insulated to be ultra warm in the winter. The shell is made from post consumer recycled milk and detergent bottles making the Kitty Tube a very green product AND The Kitty Tube is MADE IN THE USA!

The Kitty Tube has a removable top lid, is seamless in construction and is environmentally friendly due to the post consumer recycled content. The one piece construction provides for a smooth interior which is easily cleaned with a simple spray of the garden hose. The dome lid keeps your pet dry in even the heaviest of rains. The geometric shape resists wind and is naturally preferred by cats. The high quality, fully insulated Kitty Tube is strongly recommended for all outdoor cats and also creates a safe and secure haven if your cat is to give birth.

About our 1 door design: The unique door design provides easy passage for your cat, but will not allow a predator like dogs or coyotes to get to your cat.  The Kitty Tube was intentionally designed with only one door.  There are several reasons for this design:

  • With one door, the exceptionally insulated Kitty Tube will retain the majority of the heat your cat produces inside, compared to other designs with two doors that allow excessive air movement through the shelter.
  • One door will keep your cat safe and secure as predators cannot fit their head inside the unique door design of The Kitty Tube. Most small animals such as possums or raccoons are generally not a life threatening danger to your cat.
  • We feel it is a misconception to provide a second door for an escape in case of a predator attack.  If your cat leaves their safe haven of The Kitty Tube, it is now vulnerable to be caught by predators. Predators such as dogs and coyotes know how to catch a fleeing cat.
  • Most kittens born inside of a Kitty Tube are NOT moved as usual by their mother, as they feel safe inside!

    100% pleased with this product-best on Market

    Posted by J Tatman on 15th Dec 2022

    This is the 2nd kitty tube I have purchased. I gave 1 to my neighbor and her new cat loves it! The delivery was very quick. Communication from seller has been amazing both times. This is very good quality and I think the best in coldest of temps and snow. I will likely purchase another as soon as I am able to.

    Exactly what Woolybear needed!

    Posted by Diane on 15th Dec 2022

    We have a community cat that has decided that our backyard is his home. Using a makeshift shelter, we soon realized that something sturdier and warmer was needed after the last snowy windstorm. Kitty Tube is the perfect solution! Woolybear started using it the first day....with a little catnip sprinkled on the pillow to peek his interest. Thank you for creating this shelter for our furry friends!

    Don't wait another day--buy this!

    Posted by Lauren on 9th Dec 2022

    Last winter we set up a cobbled together shelter for the neighborhood feral cat. It definitely was not enough for our harsh Midwestern winters. In early October '22, we discovered and purchased The Kitty Tube Gen 4 with the heating pad, oat straw, and double insulation option for the cold months. If you are thinking about buying this, don't wait another day--do it! It took about 3 weeks for the cat to feel comfortable sticking his head inside. I think he would have used it sooner but I introduced it while the weather was still nice. I carefully assisted this along in Week 3 by putting a small bit of soft cat food on a jar lid and setting it just inside the entry. I removed the empty lid each time immediately after he licked it clean and left the vicinity or if he didn't show up on schedule. This is important so that you don't attract ants or other creatures. Each day, I put the lid a little further inside until the day came I saw the cat go in on his own. We found a fairly protected spot next to the south side of our house. We turned the entrance so it is angled a bit towards our wall to keep out the worst of the winds because we get storms that come in from every direction. The oat straw that was left over from being placed inside of The Kitty Tube, was piled in a bowl shape in front of the entrance. The cat frequently suns himself on the straw outside when the weather is nice and it also helps to keep out tracked in mud. In fact, I'm here to buy more of that straw because it is such high quality. I've noticed that the cat and a large opossum have some sort of time-share arrangement where the possum takes over and has a heated break-room for a couple hours in the evening now winter has set in. However, the cat returns and is inside The Kitty Tube every morning sound asleep at sunrise. The cat also is in and out of it during the day, especially on colder days. I did purchase a weatherproof water-resistant extension cord connection box to protect the electrical connection from the heating pad to the outdoor extension cord we use to power it. We're very grateful for this ingenious cat shelter because we can go for weeks on end during the winter without getting above the freezing mark and windchills are deadly. It is nice to know we've been able to help this feral kitty have a much more comfortable and, hopefully, longer life.

    Best Cat House! Will Last Forever!

    Posted by Trisha Dankworth on 28th Nov 2022

    I have 4 of these for my stray cats. Doesn't get any better than this. I also bought the heating pads last winter and I'm sure the cats are living an even better life now. Wasn't expecting my 4th one to be delivered for 2 weeks but it arrived in 2 days which I really appreciated. A bit expensive but they are indestructible and basically maintenance free. We take the lids off every couple weeks and make sure everything is good. My first one is around 3 years old and you can't tell which one is which. These will last forever.

    Not raccoon proof

    Posted by Mary on 19th Nov 2022

    Works well to keep cats warm, until a raccoon made it’s way in. My feral now wants nothing to do with it. In search of something else to keep her warm this winter.
