I think I hear one, I hear a feral. As you know, we have some feral kitties that live around our place and we do our best to take care of them. They all haven’t been TNR’d yet, but we are working on that. But it is starting to get colder and I told my Dad he needed to do something to help them through the winter.
Let’s face it, my Dad is not Bob the Builder so his attempts to build something didn’t go to far. So, we decided to do something to stimulate the economy and to help the ferals at the same time. We bought a pre-fabricated feral house and Dad put it together. We searched high and low and settled on the purrfect house from OutdoorPetHouses.com.
The house is very nice, and it is insulated too. There are two doors on the front, and an emergency escape door in the back. The windows on the side are plexiglass to keep the wind out. It also has a heated pad specially designed for outdoor use and the plug-in cord is spring wrapped to prevent any chewing. Yes, they use it, and our one black feral cat really loves it.
My Dad also got a deck storage bench that we use, without the lid, as their feeding station so they can keep out of the rain and wind while they are having there food.
We probably have seven or eight ferals, and they seem to come and go, and boy are they camera shy…and people shy. We will try to share pictures as we get them but we did manage to capture two enjoying breakfast.
This is a new one, we haven’t seen her before but I think she was enjoying her meal.
This good looking tabby stopped by for a bite shortly after the Tortie girl left.
We have to sneak and take the pictures through the sliding glass door so they are not overly clear. I hope you enjoyed seeing our feral winterizing project. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
