I found this on facebook (Cat lovers' Rescue Group) and wanted to show you how a winter shelter for ferals can be put together.
I like this one but I know that ferals need to have a back escape hole or they will not use it.
Has anyone ever used something like this? I'd like to know more about these.
If there was an entrance and an exit I wonder if it would be warm enough?
My charges this week-end
(some of you have met these three before)
This black and white creature with a stripe down it's back did not send me running for cover. Nope...this one I gathered up and snuggled in my arms.
First, I had to lift him. Ha! No easy feat.
Look at this gentle giant.
I could have cuddled him all day. He is gorgeous, has personality and will charm the whiskers off of any other cat. Guess where he came from?
The Lanark Animal Shelter in Smiths Falls. Imagine someone giving him up.
What an arm-ful!
His name is Presley.
Molly is a chocolate sundae cat.
Just look at those tootsies
Those are vanilla ice-cream paws with chocolate sauce.
"I'll have one, please."
and Buddy...what a doll!
Buddy wants to be groomed ALL DAY.
Then he gave me a 'cat in window' photo.
After visiting and caring for these three magnificent cats I headed back to town to care for a tuxedo, an orange and white and a calico. You'll meet them soon.
The rain has stopped and the sun is shining once again.
Kane really enjoyed running the acres today.
Another thin, starving, wandering cat has been picked up in our area. Our shelter is full and a good person has offered to take her in temporarily. Bless her.
Our local shelter is a NO KILL shelter and, at some point, if adoptions are down the shelter fills up. That is what has happened recently. This is when the community has to step up and help out.
Please remember to support your local animal shelter & animal rescue groups in your area.
