Welcome to Feralvilla -- home of the World's Best Selling Outdoor Cat Shelter
(August 20) Due to lumber shortages from covid-19 mill closures, shelters may have gray or tan primer on the panels. This doesn't change the performance or protection afford by the shelter, only the color.

New versions of shelters and feeding stations now available -- Saying "Goodbye" to plywood!The design that has been proven for more than a decade is the same, but we're saying goodbye to plywood and using LP's SmartSide products. The SmartSide system brings proven technology that resists fungal decay and termites. It comes with a beautiful wood grain texture, and is coated with a durable primer. It's the perfect combination of technology and appearance.
Why the change? The SmartSide products are technologically superior to traditional plywood. They have no knots, voids or cracks and they do not warp like plywood. Because of the variable quality of plywood, we have much to grade and discard a significant percentage of the parts we cut. Using more parts of the harvested trees, the SmartSide system is more Earth friendly! With the factory applied primer and the SmartGuard system to prevent fungal decay and termite infestation, we can offer a product of superior performance without having to paint.
Why not offer painted versions too? Painting takes nearly 50% of the production time for our products. The equipment is expensive and requires frequent maintenance. To paint efficiently, facilities and equipment much more elaborate than we can afford are required. Painting, drying, the additional care needed for painted parts, additional packing materials...all of these things slow the production process and cost money.
Faster production! We are able to produce our products faster now without painting. This means less production backlog during the upcoming peak season (September-January).
We're a small shop that specializes exclusively in making products for outdoor cats.The Feralvilla Outdoor Cat Shelter was originally designed in 2003. It was engineered from scratch with the intention of overcoming the shortcomings of the common designs for cat shelters that were little more than variations on the decades-old dog house design.
The Feralvilla Outdoor Cat Shelter and Feralvilla Project Cat Shelter incorporate a 2-level design with a fully insulated upper level to provide an unprecedented level of protection. Thousands of shelters of this design have been sold since 2003.
