Tree Cathouse / Cat Hole

Tree Cathouse
Tree Cathouse

In the winter, some half hardy trees are wound around circles of ropes, in order to prevent them from frostbite. The Tree Cathouse is designed for the homeless cat and dog based on this treatment. There is a support along the tree at bottom, and ropes are wound around the tree and supporting frame to form a space for little animals. It can be used by them for rest, heating and hiding from rain, wind and snow. This product will provide habitat for homeless animals, without damaging the overall image of the city.
