After spotting a little critter hole in a house I recently sold, I told Trent that we needed one for Niles. He gave in agreed and created a spot for Niles (food, litter, etc). We made it just small enough for someone else to be able to patch it up and just big enough for most dogs. (Truthfully, if the next owner doesn’t have pets it would make a great kids’ hideout….after a steam cleaning). We will fully finish it off…paint, carpet and even put a light inside. It may be my favorite part of the basement currently!
