How to Test Your K&H Heated Product
You'll notice that the K&H Lectro-Soft may not feel warm to the touch when your pet is not on the pad. That is normal! You can test the pad by placing a large pillow on top of the pad. After about 20 minutes, feel under the pillow. It will feel warm, not hot. Do not use an extension cord during this test. Do not place anything on the pad (other than the fleece cover provided) any other time. This should only be done during testing.

This winter has been mild for the most part (in NYC), but these couple of days with such low temperature has made me worried about the cat's comfort and health. I'm thinking I might be returning this house and instead getting a semi enclosed heated cup bed that I can place inside a DIY insulated cat house made using either a cardboard box or plastic storage container lined with 1" insulation board cut to fit.
This house is advertised and sold as an "outdoor" heated cat house, which means it should at the very least be weather- and water-proof, but it is not, so the manufacturer is guilty of false or misleading advertisement. For a truly "outdoor" house it should be insulated and water-proof. This house is not good to use outdoors where it could get wet from rain. If left outside where it'll be exposed to rain, the inside will get wet, as the thin floor fabric will soak up water, soaking the heating floor pad, then the cat/s will refuse to use it, as some of the customers have informed. And because it's not insulated, and the heating floor pad, which only warms one (larger) side, barely registers any warmth on the center when a cat is laying on it, it does nothing to keep the house warm, or dry when it rains. So this uninsulated house is good for indoor use only, in a mildly cool or heated room, or an insulated porch or garage where the temperature is above freezing, not for use outdoors or in an uninsulated and unheated area, as the warming floor pad is inadequate to warm a cat and keep dry when it rains.
The 20-watt "heating" pad is inside (sown-in) the larger part of the floor pad under a thin layer of sherpa-like fabric, but it barely "warms" only on that side and only in the middle, so that means it's on the area where the door flaps are, and where cold air will come in through the sides of the door flap. The smaller part of the floor pad is unheated and goes over the smaller side of the house. I switched the pad around so that the larger part is on the smaller, more enclosed part of the house. There's a slit opening in the middle bottom of the front and back side of the house, so that the extension cord of the heated floor pad can be inserted through, so you can switch the sides of the pad to your liking, as I did. It plugs into a 3-prong outlet and has no temperature control. It's nearly impossible to tell if it's on/working/warming or not. If you want a pad that you can actually feel warm up or one with temperature control, get a different brand with higher wattage.
When on sale the price is reasonable, at $54 or less for the heated version, $52 for the unheated version.
Easy to assembled, following the included instruction sheet, though can be done it without it.
The house, when assembled, is not heavy, so is easy to transport.
The walls and roof of the house seem to be made of durable, not difficult to clean, polyester-like material, that might be slightly water-resistant.
The heating floor pad's cushion is about an inch thick and its placement can be reversed.
Can provide 1 to 3 cats shelter from the wind.
When not on sale the price is too high (when it's over $54).
The house is not insulated or weather-/water-proof.
The material used on the walls, roof and floor is not water-proof or water-repellant, though the walls and roof might be water-resistant.
The floor is a thin polyester-like fabric that can soak up water that comes in contact with it, so won't keep inside or the floor pad dry when it rains.
The heating part of the floor pad does not cover the whole floor of the house, only the larger side, but the sides can be switched.
The heating floor pad does not have a removable, washable cover. To clean, unplug and use a damp cloth.
When on, the heating part of the floor pad barely registers any warmth when the cat is laying on it, and not disernable warmth when empty. Does not help keep the house warm.
And a minor complain - the wall panels could look smoother, not as creased. (see photos)
How it can be improved?
By making all of it (roof, walls and floor) insulated and water-proof, and using a better and larger heating element for the floor pad. Then it would merit a 5 star rating.
After all that said, I'm still not sure if I'm going to return it or keep it. If I keep it, I'm going to use a different heating element/pad or a heating cat bed, which will add to the cost of shelter for the rescue stray cat.
Provided 2 photos of my DIY winter feral cat shelter that I made for outdoor feral cats to use.
These were easy to fold open and attach the various parts to one another. While not indestructible, the construction is stiff and well supported. It is also washable with hose and sponge, since it is completely encased in thick canvas-like material. The fleece-covered heated floor pad covers the entire floor of the house. It acts as insulation as well as a heat source, since it covers all the seams around the bottom inside. The walls attach to one another with good sturdy Velcro. The roof attaches to the walls with 2 zippers and more Velcro. It isn't air tight, and it isn't completely waterproof, but if you use it in a sheltered area - preferably on a deck or porch - it will stay warm and dry.
We live in northwestern South Carolina, and it can get cold up here near the mountains. We also get some snow, maybe once a year. The K and H kitty houses have been staying in good shape and keeping my outdoor cats warm during our winters. I sleep much better knowing that while I'm cuddled up in my nice warm bed, I have provided the same for Reggie and Zorro.
This is a simple, non-elaborate, no construction way of quickly solving your outdoor pet's winter survival needs. It was designed with his comfort in mind, and also his safety, with the second "escape door" in the back wall. If you live in Wisconsin or North Dakota or Minnesota, keep looking. This house wasn't meant for blizzard-force winds, or Biblical floods, or 3 feet of snow at 30 below. But for the rest of us, it works very well.
The quality of this house is superior to the A frame house. The roof is padded at the top which provides some insulation. I appreciate how easy it is to set up a the design is much better for keeping a cat warm. The little enclosed area is perfect for keeping the wind out.
I bought this for a stray/feral cat who has been coming around for about 6 months and eating at our back porch. It's very skittish and won't let you touch it.
It's taken some time and patience to get it to sleep on a heated pad and we know it will need more than that to stay warm. So we bought this and put it where the heated pad was and I've managed to get it inside the cat house for a few moments by enticing it with food inside it. I had to take the little door flaps off it. It's still a work in progress...
The reason why I knocked the review down a star is because of the smell of the house. I don't know if it's the dye or the glue used but it has a little bit of chemical smell. It can make it even harder to get a cat to use it.

no heat comes out of it i put my hand on it after an hour and 3 hours later still no heat at all!
i want to return this and getting something better that is worth the price
we get cold winter wanted this for my stray cat outdoors to keep warm this will not do anything for him
At night time when I put my hand in it, it's not cold inside but I wouldn't say it's warm.
Add a cat's body heat and I bet it's perfect
