would you buy a used cathouse

it is carpeted, round, cave/hideout and a place to sit on top. its good for 1 cat and that is what I have. I want to put her in the garage at night because she keeps us up all night so this would be perfect.

or is it a bad a idea

  • I don't know that I would buy it used. Depending on if the previous cat had a disease or fleas, they could still be in the house. Distemper is a major one. The bacteria can hang around for a long long time, and can infect other cats. You can get inexpensive ones $15-$25.

    The one from Amazon is probably closer to what you are looking at and its only $17 new.

  • The only thing I would be worried about are fleas. Are they expensive new?

  • You know, when I read the tease for this post, my first thought was "sure, if it is the Chicken Ranch in Texas". You really shouldn't use the term "cat house". This just took me to an altogether wrong place.

  • I have gotten a used one and my cat smelled something on it that I couldn't smell ..and she hated it!!! She would smell it in digust and walk away. You could always make one too out of old carpet pieces and some wood.
