You might remember Spike of the Tom & Jerry Show(Yes, that brutal yet adorable dog!). Remember his cute little dog house and how he seemed to have some nice cozy sleep in it(until Tom would bother, of course!)? So how about getting your kitty her own snug cat house?
Pet houses have been popular for decades. Especially as people used to keep their dogs outside.
A pet house gives your pet a sense of security, independence, and a homely feeling. It can be great for their mental stimulation as well as their physical comfort.
It is evident that cats like to have their own privacy and some lone-time as well.
Thus, in my opinion, a cat house can be a great idea!

On the sides, there is a scratch panel for your itching pet. It also promotes healthy grooming as cats love to scratch themselves up against rough surfaces.
This cat hideout is sturdy and easy to assemble. And for storage purpose, it can collapse into convenient size without much hassle.
