How to Build a Feral Cat Hut

Posted by on

Whether it’s summer, winter, fall or spring – undoubtedly there are stray and feral cats in your area who will be seeking not only food and water, but also options for shelter from weather elements and warmth during the cold winter months. Do you have a feral/stray cat hut handy? How can you be sure your cat hut provides adequate warmth this fall and winter?First things first…provide a covered area with a food bowl and a heated water bowl (often times a front porch area will work well for this as most heated water bowls need to be plugged in). Also, be sure to have the feral/stray cats in your area spayed/neutered to prevent further kittens from homelessness. You can find low-cost feline spay/neuter options by clicking here.
