Product Overview

Welcome to The New Generation of The Kitty Tube™


Introducing GENERATION 4! 


Here at The Kitty Tube™ we are always thinking about the safety and well-being of your kitty. 

With that in mind, we've taken Gen 3's vapor proof barrier and lid vent cap, and added our exclusive flow-through foam layer. 

Gen 3's features + Gen 4's innovations = The driest kitty on the block!


 The new features of Generation 4 include: 

l 15% thicker bottom insulation than the previous model

l  Insulation is elevated off the bottom of The Kitty Tube to keep it higher off the cold ground

l  Specialized flow-through foam layer is now placed under the bottom insulation of The Kitty Tube

l  The flow through bottom layer prevents all moisture caused by condensation from ever reaching bedding

l  The new and improved drainage system eliminates moisture out of the bottom of the shelter


The Kitty Tube is Guaranteed to keep the weather out and is simply the highest quality insulated outdoor cat house on the market today!

 The Kitty Tube with Straw comes with:

  • Door Awning & Clear Flap Door: The door awning improves rain/snow protection and includes a gasket to eliminate any water weepage around the edges. The clear flap door is designed to repel wind and helps to keep heat inside the Kitty Tube during cold weather seasons. The clear flap door can be installed and removed easily without tools. NOTE: The door awning set is also available for all older model Kitty Tubes with a logo. See separate listing. 

  • Vent Cap & Gasket: The vent cap was created to eliminate moisture laden air that can build up under the top lid. This moisture laden air can cause condensation in certain temperature swings. The vent 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. The 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. If retrofitting an older Kitty Tube, a standard 1 ½” hole saw is needed to make a hole for the vent cap.
  • Main Insulation with Scratch Guard™: This insulation set will cover the walls, floor and ceiling of The Kitty Tube. The Kitty Tube Scratch Guard™ and vapor proof insulation is 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.
  • Ventilation Hand Hole Awnings: The Kitty Tube includes awnings that protect the handle/ventilation holes in the lid from rain and snow. These awnings also provide a comfortable handle when removing the lid or moving the Kitty Tube.

The Feral Option Kitty Tube comes with straw. Straw is the preferred bedding for feral cats as it resists moisture and retains body heat as the cats can burrow into the straw. This option is recommended by most Cat Rescue Groups.

The Kitty Tube provides a safe, economical and maintenance free shelter for your cat. Designed for outdoor use, The Kitty Tube is fully insulated to be ultra warm in the winter. The shell is partially made from post-consumer recycled milk and detergent bottles making the Kitty Tube a very green product AND The Kitty Tube is MADE IN THE USA!

 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!

Product Features and specs.

  • The Kitty Tube provides an economical, safe, and secure home for up to 3 cats. (Only 2 cats if you have the double insulated option.)

  • The dimensions are 24″ round x 24″ tall with lid on.
  • The bottom surface of The Kitty Tube 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.

    Kitty Tube

    Posted by Donna on 1st Dec 2022

    It seems sturdy and warm, but the outdoor kitty hasn't used it yet. The awnings and entry were difficult to assemble. The Kitty Tube: So sorry Donna that you struggled with the awning assembly. Our videos can really help on some of these slightly tricky parts.

    STILL a great product!!!

    Posted by Candace Foulke on 1st Oct 2022

    We just purchased our 4th Kitty Tube for our "herd" of outside ferals that have become somewhat a fixture at our house. We have them outside on our deck year round. They look neat, the cats really seem to enjoy them, easy to clean, and we're happy that they're happy. These tubes are extremely weather resistant and we have had no issues with cracking, leaking, fading etc. Keep up the good work and thanks for a great product!

    Kitty Tube avec paille et double isolation

    Posted by Suzanne Nadeau on 12th Sep 2022

    C'est mon deuxième achat de ce produit. J'ai été ravie de mon premier achat, j'en ai donc acheté un deuxième parce que les chats méritent ce qui se fait de mieux. c'est un produit très durable et vraiment efficace, avec un coussin chauffant, pour les nuits de moins 30 degrés au Québec.

    Mr. Bradac is a Godsend!! His product has been a new/safe home for a very young Calico and her four kittens that adopted us this past March. Now that the kittens are growing up, am placing an order for at least two more in order to ensure their safety and comfort for the upcoming Fall/Winter. God Bless you once more Mr. Bradac for your compassion and Divinely inspired cat shelter.

    Kitty tube for feral male cat

    Posted by Jeanne on 3rd Sep 2022

    My feral is getting used to the kitty tube being on my patio and it will probably take another week for him to go in and stay for a while. It was fairly easy to put the awning & handles on and everything else was already put in place so easy to reassemble after placing the awning. Good, thick insulation. (I bought the extra) Nice heated pad to place over the straw for extreme cold. Sure beats the cheap house I bought last year which was hard to assemble and I had to insulate! Kitty tube is a great solution for housing my outdoor feral and keeping him warm & protected

    This outdoor cat shelter is well worth the money. I am glad that I didn't buy anything else for less money or try doing a DYI shelter.
