In the past I have always tried to keep my posts light. But because of the weather conditions the last couple days here, I have to bring something to topic. Shelters for those cats not lucky enough to have a loving forever home.
The last couple days here, the temperature has been in the negative. With a windchill even lower. (in the -20’s) These poor kitties don’t have a warm lap to lay in or ready food to eat. I think it should behoove us that do, to try to convince our hoomins, if they can, to construct shelters and maybe find some way to leave food for these kitties. After all it’s not their fault that they don’t have a home. It was some hoomin that left them or their parents abandoned.
This is important to me because I had to go through five different homes/families until Daddy found me. At any time I could have been just left out there to fend for myself. Luckily they all brought me back to Lollypop farm/Humane Society for another chance to find a home.
So Daddy and I decided to try to see if the internet had any answers. And we googled “Feral Cat Shelters” and found A LOT of articles on how to construct shelters and keep them warm. Also ready made shelters for sale, for those hoomins that are not very handy. These are just a few of the many images that Daddy and I found…
Also many comunities have a TNR program in effect. To try to control the populations Some require the hoomin to pay for it all, some have subsidy programs to help with cost. Ask your hoomin to check with the local Humane Society or SPCA for what requirements are in place. Or even just the local Vet might have the information.
Sorry for dragging out the soap box, but this is near and dear to our hearts.
With Love, Foxy
