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!

Product description:

This Kitty Tube, with STRAW, Outdoor insulated cat house includes:

  • Main Door Awning with Flap: The main door awning improves rain/snow protection and includes a gasket to eliminate any water seepage around the edges. The clear removable flap door has also been designed to repel wind.  This clear door flap can be installed and removed easily without tools. It will help keep heat inside the Kitty Tube during cold weather seasons.  This new awning/door flap combination will fit all previous model Kitty Tubes that have the Kitty Tube LOGO on the sides. NOTE: This awning is also available for all older model Kitty Tubes. See separate listing. 
  • Top Lid Vent Cap V2: This cap is needed to eliminate moisture laden air that can build up under the top lid. This moisture laden air can cause condensation in certain temperature swings. This 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. This new 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.
  • Scratch Guard™ Insulation: The Kitty Tube-Generation 4 Scratch Guard™ and vapor proof  insulation is now 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.
  • OPTIONAL Scratch Guard™ Double InsulationThe Kitty Tube double insulation option will double the insulation value of the Kitty Tube. Installation is easy and it will fit all previous model Kitty Tubes that have a “Kitty Tube” logo on the side. This accessory is perfect for 1-2 cats, as it creates a smaller space to keep your cats warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Ventilation Hand Hole Awnings: The Kitty Tube-Generation 4 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.
  • Drainage System: The bottom surface of the Kitty Tube-Generation 4 is slightly elevated off the ground and incorporates a built in channel and drainage system to eliminate any subsequent moisture that might enter the Kitty Tube due to unforeseen circumstances.

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!

    Love these Kitty Tubes

    Posted by Brenda on 12th Dec 2022

    These kitty tubes are very well made. They do not retain water on top it runs off. They accommodate a couple of carts. The straw inside works wonderfully. The Kitty Tube accommodates a couple of cats. The only problem we do have is the plastic flap doors do freeze when the weather gets very cold. Maybe if it were a little bit heavier of a plastic that would not happen. Not sure. Other than that definitely a great item. We have four so far.

    Purchased for my sisters stray kitties. One was just about to give birth so the shelter arrived at the perfect time.

    New Kitty tube is Fantastic

    Posted by PJ on 4th Apr 2022

    I chose this less expensive option because money is right and kitties don't care. Truth told, I didn't see any scratches or dents, so they are clearly minor. I am so impressed with the product and how easy it is to set up. All my indoor cats are very curious. I'm hoping a pregnant kitten in my backyard will adopt it as home. Thanks for your great product.

    The KittyTube had some issues beyond the typical sctatch-n-dent description. Kitty Tube responded immediately and offered a suitable resolution. I've purchased 3 KittyTubes and will buy more if the need arises. The kitties love them:)

    Kitty Tube with straw and bed

    Posted by Rhonda Whitaker on 19th Feb 2021

    This appears to be an excellent product! It's pretty large and very sturdy. There is an ample amount of straw for the bed too. The company shipped my Kitty Tube the VERY NEXT DAY! That was amazing!

    Kitty tube

    Posted by Gail on 15th Feb 2021

    This is my third shelter. The cats just seem to show up to use these. I started with one cat we had neutered. He came with a kitten the next summer. Now I have a new kitten that showed up this fall making a new total of 4 cats. The weather is snowy and cold. They are all protected. I highly recommend this product I hope 3 shelters will be enough

    Scratch-N- Dent

    Posted by Anthony Kepler on 14th Jan 2021

    Just as good ! I purchased 2 recently. The top roof seam was not flush on one top seam. no big deal. You had to look really close to even notice. The other one, the roof was not smooth on one portion and had a small scuff mark on it. I do not think the kitties even noticed.

    Great community cat house

    Posted by Stephanie R. on 14th Jan 2021

    Been thinking about picking one up, and figured I'd give the scratch and dent a try in case it wouldn't work for my cats. I'm glad I did. There's no issue with quality at all. Very well made, it will provide a safe, warm, and dry shelter for years. Would definitely buy again!
