Foggy's Winter Feral Cat Shelter

Postby Fogdude » Oct Thu 31, 2019 10:05 am

I decided to put together a cold weather shelter for the feral cats in my area. I'm posting this link to my FB page where I uploaded several videos. More will be coming.

Thanks, Wrench. I assumed, cats being curious, they would've been all over it, right away, but there have only been a few that went in to explore & they didn't stay long. I guess they're used to their current digs & don't feel the need to move in. I sure hope it wasn't a waste of time & effort. I guess we'll just have to wait & see. If we see any use of it, my next steps will be to install a new camera system for monitoring them, with separate cameras for each apartment. But, I'm not gonna make any more investment like that until I see it being used. Even a sprinkling of catnip around the entrance barely generated any interest.

Thanks, Curt. I worked it out mentally for months. Even after I started, I still made adjustments. It was a lot more work than I initially thought, but less expensive. Still things to do, but it's enough, for now.
