    I bought this for the 3-4 cats that live on my porch, for the winter. I also got the body-heat mat for the inside, and the door (I’m reviewing those on their own product pages).

    I have uploaded a picture of the medium dogloo (Indigo Dog Home) with the door, and my cat Katrina, so maybe you can get a visual idea about size. She is maybe 5# IF that, a normal sized housecat breed.

    I bought two of these, and they came together in the biggest box I’ve ever seen, holy cats! I didn’t even know carrier services could deliver boxes that big. Four normal adults could have fit crouching in it! Info about the product:

    * I was pleased to see the bottom section is deep enough that I didn’t have to worry about rain ‘sliding’ into the doghouse, as my porch gets very puddle-ish in heavy rain.

    * There is a vent area near the top back.

    * There is no hole for the heater accessory, you have to drill one in the side of the cover, just fyi. (Purchase separately.)

    * There are pre-made screw holes inside for the door (which is a soft flap that sits inside a few inches). (Purchase separately.)

    * I saw other reviews about this somewhere, complaining about the “flimsiness” of the tabs that snap it together. There are a few on the dark bottom part ‘inside’ and a few on the white top part ‘outside’. When my box arrived, one of the inner bottom tabs was snapped completely off and loose in the box. It really is just thin hard rubber and those tabs have a ‘flex point’ built in obviously to allow them to move a little, so those probably aren’t real robust.

    * I’m intending to ‘duck tape’ around the seam where the two pieces connect. I feel this will be better for temperature reasons and it wouldn’t be that hard to just pull off if opening to clean. I think even if a couple of connective tabs snapped, duck tape would work it out. I’m not saying the product needs duck taping to work, I’m just saying that while the potential flimsiness of those connector tabs is a legit complaint for some folks, it’s probably not something that would take much time/trouble to compensate for, IF it even came up for you.

    * I do not yet know how the plastic will hold up to a serious freeze. I do know that the door isn’t remotely a door and I’m going to have to do something else to drastically increase the warmth containment inside even in addition to a tiny-watt covered light custom-placed inside and the body-heat mat sold custom for the product.

    * The doghouse seems pretty secure, and roomy inside. It’s nice that the doorway is kind of ‘extra’ space. I’m hoping the shape of it will make it safer from the straightline winds we get here in the Ozarks, I don’t want it blowing away! I think this is a good design.

    The back half that has the body-heat mat sold for this should fit ~5 friendly cats just fine.
    * I’m updating this review May 2012, see comments.

    I thought that because the profile says “good for large dogs” it would be for a 50lb dog, but it’s not. I have a chow mix, which isn’t very big, he’s about 48lbs and only comes up to my knees, but he can’t fit through the door into this dog house. I thought I bought a large, but this company only sells Medium houses online. The product itself is fine if you have a medium dog <40lbs.
