Look cute from a distance.. Poor quality

Extremely flimsy wood which makes it unstable and if the holes aren’t in the right places the entire thing is off balance and the roof won’t fall together at the top properly. Black paint was very scarce and the top panel is all chipped. Close up it looks cheap and nasty.

Cat pet cage

Fantastic, easy to install, my cat loves it!

Love it!

After chewing through 3 other dog houses to suit him, our ridgeback x LOVES his new huge house. He was straight in and hasn’t had to put his mark on it as he can move around and sleep spread out without having to worry about hitting the sides.
