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!

    Kitty Tube

    Posted by Jeanine Puckett on 7th Jan 2021

    What a wonderful invention! We have had a couple of cats wander up that we feel sorry for, so we always keep food out (so do our neighbors). I can't bring them into my house as I have Chihuahuas, but I have worried about them in inclement weather. Solution - The Kitty Tube!! They seem to love it and definitely go in there at night when it is cold out.

    Scratch and Dent

    Posted by Daniel Houston on 6th Jan 2021

    I was worried when I ordered the scratch and dent model that I might not get a quality piece. I was WRONG! Just a couple obvious little issues when they cut the top of the tube. When you put the top piece on you can’t tell there is an issue at all.!!

    Scratch-N-Dent came with a 'scuff' on the top - which didn't matter to me, as it will be sitting in the woods. Other than that, I'm very impressed with the quality, the engineering and attention to detail. Came with everything needed to pop into place and setup. Easy.

    My porch cats love this!

    Posted by debbie schmidt on 26th Dec 2020

    I could not put the flap or cover on the door because my porch cats were too fat to get in with it on LOL. BUT The two of them are in there together all the time now and even the sub zero temps didn't bother them.

    The finest in American Made Construction

    Posted by Lynn on 25th Dec 2020

    These are a BARGAIN considering how well-made they are, how large they are and the fact they come with a generous amount of straw. They’re larger than I thought they’d be and three adult cats can easily feel comfortable in each one. I enjoyed the customer service I got too! I would definitely buy again but probably won’t have to for a long time.

    We have 3 Kitty Tubes1

    Posted by Vic on 13th Dec 2020

    We love our Kitty Tubes so much! We have 3. Our cats using them lived to be 24 years old. We used them in the northeast in a garage heated to 60 degrees. The older cats loved the heated pads--it must have felt good on their aging joints.

    Kitty Tube

    Posted by Abby on 14th Oct 2019

    I just love my new kitty tube so much and so does the stray kitty I bought it for. I had tried another outdoor kitty house and he wouldn’t go inside of it but he goes inside of the kitty tube all the time.

    Excellent cat shelter

    Posted by Tamatha on 23rd Aug 2019

    This is the second kitty tube we've purchased, and the one we bought several years ago is still going strong - you'd think it was new, too. We get a lot of rain and wind and cold weather here, in addition to large predators in the area, so a place for strays to sleep that is well-insulated, safe, and dry is perfect.
