Keeping the kitties warm and dry this winter- Feline Fridays

Alrighty, so it's sort of winter some places, REALLY winter other places and sometimes both everywhere else (um, global warming doubters- are you still non-believers?).  Either way it's the time of year when strays die from the elements.  And outside of trying to outfit them in little parkas and boots, at grave risk to your health and safety, there is something really simple you can do to help them survive.

Now how simple is that?  
In Toronto you can even build one in a workshop at the humane society in an afternoon if you're still unsure or want to help but don't have cats to build for (generally held every second Saturday from 10-3).

However, it's a super easy do it yourself project.  The details on how to, that go with this wonderful step by step picture are over on P.A.C.T Humane Society's site (which I found thanks to Annex Cat Rescue's  Pint Interest post).  

If you opt for the parka and booties route, and survive, I would really like pictures.
I'm just saying.


  1. Thank you so much for this. Is doesn't get cold in Florida but I've been wanting to give the stray I feed a little place to get away from the rain. I think this is perfect (minus the isolation for me). Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    1. Yay! I'm so happy to hear you'll use it!

  2. My husband and I are building one for our kitty this weekend =^o^= What a terrific idea!

  3. I don't see links to the instructions and the picture doesn't get bigger when I click on it. Seems pretty simple, but I'm wondering what size tubs you used? And also how did you cut the holes in them? Was it easy?
