Kritter Kondo Review!

I have to give you a little background on my cats before I review the Kritter Kondo. We have two kitties: Scout and Shawn. When we got Scout she was an an outdoor cat. As time went by she became and indoor/outdoor cat. She loved being outside. Then we got Shawn. Shawn has never ever been an outdoor cat. She has been strictly an indoor cat. We finally had to make Scout and indoor cat because she would always get beat up and we were afraid something would happen to her.

But Scout has never ever been happy as an indoor cat. If there is an open door or a chance to slip out, she will. I think she stll yearns for the opportunity to run wild but oh well. Okay, you have a little background and it will make you understand how differently the cats reacted to the Kritter Kondo.

The Kritter Kondo is an outdoor cat enclosure. It is great for indoor cats like mine who might want to have a little outdoor time. It allows cats to to be outside with no danger of something happening. I think it is also great to travel with the Kritter Kondo. I could see taking this to the beach or when visiting family during the holidays. Sometimes we travel with our cats and this would allow them to have their own space yet not run loose.

The Kritter Kondo itself comes in a great carrying case. It was easy to assemble. It is totally enclosed with a cloth mesh so your pets cannot get out at all. It collapses flat so it is easy to store inside the case and store. The interior of the carrying case has three pockets and a zipper pouch for toys, food, blanket and bed which is handy when traveling.

I received the Kritter Kondo Deluxe to review. Well, for the cats to review! The Deluxe comes with a shade canopy which is great because the kitties can decide to lay in the sun or relax in the shade. Like I said, assembly was easy peasy.

We decided to put the Kritter Kondo in the front yard so the kitties could look at the river. We also decided to put them in at separate times. They tolerate each other the best they can. In the house it's easy because there is a lot of space. In the Kritter Kondo, they would be trapped together and that wouldn't work out because they are poops and would fight.

So Scout was the first one. Now Scout still yearns for the outdoors. So I thought she would take to the Kritter Kondo but she didn't. Wnen we put her in the Kritter Kondo she realized that she was outside and promptly tried to find a way out of the Kritter Kondo. She didn't like being enclosed although she was outside. But that's Scout. She is a free spirit who wants to run wild. She stayed in about ten minutes before we realized that she was not happy.

Shawn on the other hand, liked being outside in the Kritter Kondo because she has never really been outside. She comes out on the front porch and once got out the back door. But to Shawn, the outdoors is all new. She was able to lay on the grass and take in the sights but still be protected. And she did enjoy it. She had no issues She walked around and then laid down and relaxed.

One thing I loved about the Kritter Kondo is that it has two doors on either side because when it was time to go back into the house Shawn didn't want to come out of the Kritter Kondo. She wanted to stay outside. But the double doors made it easy for us to reach in on either side and pick her up.

I would definitely use the Kritter Kondo for Shawn especially when we are outside on the front porch. That way she can enjoy the sun and fresh air. I would probably not use it with Scout unless it was being used on a trip or when we visit some one's house with the cats.

Overall, through I liked this product and if you have small dogs and cats, it is a great product. I wouldn't leave them alone but it is a nice way to get your pets outside without worrying if that they will run away or get hurt.

I also like the fact that the Kritter Kondo is made to add on more units so you can make the enclsure bigger. The mesh is small enough that the cats or dogs cannot get stuck and hurt themselves. And there is enough room to put a bed, food, water and toys.

I think this would make a great gift for anyone with small pets. So with the holidays coming up, it might be a great gift idea!! For more information, you can follow Kritter Kommunity on Twitter or Facebook!
