How to make a Very Quick, Easy, Inexpensive Shelter for your Cat or Feral Cats ...Give a Little Love to Feral Cats this Winter
His name is Big Daddy.
We gave him this name when he was a large Tom that would roam around the area looking for lady cats.
As years ago we had a large Feral cat problem but with the help of Neighbors we managed to get them fixed and now there is only Big Daddy left .
He is very old and frail ....he waits for me to get up in the morning with his nose to the front door and comes back again at just before dusk for another mouthwatering meal.
He sleeps around the garden and on the front porch in the day.
He is very talkative and chastises me if I am late with his meal.
So each year we make him a shelter on the front porch.
We usually make it out of boxes but this year I wanted one that was more excessible for checking on him and cleaning it.
Danny and I came up with this simple idea.
from scratching the floor up too much.
As you can see I can take off both lids very easily to vacuum and clean out his little shelter every week.
I hope that this may be useful to those that love cats
I have also found that Opossums love to sleep in such shelters ....but they won't enter this one as it will have Big Daddy's scent on it.
I have also placed it far away from the front door of the house so that our cats can come and go on the porch without Big Daddy thinking it's part of his lair and getting territorial.
Please think of animals and birds this winter.
Even if it's just by replacing water in the frozen bird baths or containers as often as you can.
They will all be very grateful.
Toss out some kitchen scraps.
Happy Days to you all
