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.
