How to Make a Shelter for Stray Cats
As we approach winter, it's worth taking some time to make a temporary cat shelter or two for the stray kitties who might be without a home in your neighborhood. It only takes a few items, 30 min or less to make, and provides a warm place for cats to shake off the cold and curl up for a safe snooze.
How to make your own stray cat shelter in 5 easy steps:
1: Start with a plastic bin or styrofoam cooler (using styrofoam will insulate better & keep more warmth inside.)
2: Cut out a square in the bottom half to make a door.
3: Fill the inside with straw (not hay) for insulation.
4: Spread out the straw & make sure it's packed in well.
5: Put the top back on!
Optional - cut another small opening in the back, in case an unwanted animal tries to sneak in.
