The weather in the UK is often unpredictable, with summer storms and autumn heatwaves. The winters can be particularly harsh, with flooding and snow flurries that can be hard to avoid if your cat is out in the open and unable to get back into the house.  

These wet and windy conditions will not stop our cats from venturing outdoors however, as many love to spend their days wandering the local area, perhaps on the hunt or meeting up with other cats. This is where it is advisable to be prepared and have somewhere in place that your cat can go to should the weather take a turn for the worse. Our wide range of Katden outdoor cat shelters can offer just that.

How can I keep my cat warm outside?

If your pet refuses to stay at home when the temperature drops, you will be asking yourself how can I keep my outdoor cat warm? The answer could be a Katden outdoor cat kennel. This is a shelter that is easy to move around as required, providing a warm and dry place for your cat to see out the weather, or to spend time in on a regular basis at any time of the year.

How can I keep my feral cat warm in winter?

Once you have your Katden shelter, you can fill it with accessories to make it more appealing for your cat to spend time in. This could include a self heating pad, which will trap your pets body heat and reflect it back towards them. It will work without the need for batteries and fit perfectly into your Katden for a snug interior. It will work in the summer too, acting as a cooling pad for hot days.

How can I keep my cat warm in the garage?

It may not be the warm house, but the garage is a step up from being outside. Try to block off any drafts that can make it colder and ensure that it is not damp. Place your Katden shelter inside and then fill it with some comfortable blankets that your cat can snuggle up in. It will certainly feel like a home away from home on a wintery day, especially if you leave some fresh water and a bowl of food to help them to refuel.
