I want to get something for my feral cat. I have looked into various houses. Has anyone used the feral villa or kitty tube. If not what have you used?

Can you post a link to what you are referencing? When I google kitty tube, I only hit inappropriate sites.

I use the Feral Villa. I just love that shelter. Totally insulated second level, two exits/entrances (very important to ferals), and completely waterproof. Works well and is very reasonably priced. I would not use the Kitty Tube. Not where I live with all of the snow, wind and rain. wavey.gif

Is the feral villa insulated?? What i did't care about that was the whole is so close to the ground. Probably will get the kitty tube. I'm in the East Coast. Could always cover the hole a bit. Reviews on it are outstanding?? On Amazon. but thanks for your input?

Its a tuff call. I like the villa but feel they can get trapped in there. The tube they can sort of escape quicker. I just have one cat. May go for the tube as I like the vent holes on top.thanks though

Yes - the second level is completely insulated. It is well liked by ferals, at least my ferals used it all winter long.

There are two exits ..... which is very, very important. They cannot get trapped inside the villa. It was designed for that purpose. Good luck and I am sure you will be happy with either of the shelter's you get. wink.gif

Thanks. I just could not find any reviews on the Feral Villa (more than 2) plus there really are no pictures of the inside of it etc etc. I did see some floor plan but still was confused. Wanted to see the whole inners and outers with 2 holes etc. Feral Villa website doesn't show anything.

I just bought 2 of the feral villas and love them.  I had been using the petmate dog houses lined with purr pads and stuffed with straw prior to seeing these.  They are really very nice and well insulated.  I even put fresh straw on the top level.  I also purchased the feeding stations and like them too.  I believe these to be very well built products. 

 

If you are concerned about really cold temperatures,  you could look into a heated shelter.  I also have one of those and found multiple cats in it on cold days.
