Outdoor Shelter for Your Backyard Friends

It could get out of hand, however, if you don’t leave food out, you will not likely invite a whole feral colony into your backyard. However, you CAN help out the little stray kitty or two in your neighborhood or backyard this winter, by providing a little house to shield them from the high winds and snow.

It doesn’t have to be expensive, although you can get on for $50 at Target or as little as $39 at doghouses.com. Or, repurpose an old plastic storage bin, cut a hole on one side (be sure to tape the edges so it doesn’t hurt the kitty) and put some out fleece or newspaper in it. Even a solid cardboard box, and you could line the entire box’s outside with duct tape (so it weathers well). There are things you can do for your furry friends.
