Cozy Critters Feral Cat House Project

With winter approaching, I think about all the feral cats that do not have a cozy warm place to sleep. We have many clients who feed feral cats in their backyards. Most have been trapped, neutered or spayed and are given food and water but a lot of them do not have shelter or a cat house to get out of the winter weather.

We buy small dog houses or medium size pet carriers at garage sales and estate sales, clean them up and convert them into weather-proof cozy cat houses. We have given away four so far but need to make more. They need to be big enough for an adult cat to turn around in but not too big. Some people need multiple houses and have limited space to put them in. I wish I could supply houses like the one shown in the picture, but ours aren't quite so fancy. (Perhaps a future project?)

If you have an old pet carrier or small dog house that you don't want or need any more, email or call me (281-788-6611) and I'll come pick it up. You will be helping to provide another feral cat with a warm place to sleep in the winter. On the otherhand, if you have feral cat(s) and need a house, email me and I will put you on the list.
