Outdoor Shelters for Your Feral Colony

There are many types of shelters you can provide for outdoor cats in your neighborhood. Almost any kind of 'container' can be converted to a warm place with a little creativity. The most important factor is to layer/insulate whatever you intend to use

I provided a shelter for a Feral cat that visits my backyard in the morning and evening to be fed but will not come near the shelter, I even put his food dish in it hoping he would get into it but with no luck so far.

Great article. Creating warmth and shelter for feral cats is a wonderful gift. We built one in our backyard treehouse one time and found a loving forever home for a feral cat (after we managed to 'tame' him).

I wonder if any one will bother to help these poor homeless kitties. I hope and pray for all the aniimals with no home in the freezing weather.
