With my work in Rescue, I often get helpful ideas from other rescue organizations. This is a quick and easy solution to construct a winter shelter for outdoor cats or feral cats in the neighborhood. I think the photo is self-explanatory.
This idea came from our friends at Urgent Ohio Dogs, a rescue organization that helps to place dogs from shelters throughout the State of Ohio. They are a dedicated group of volunteers whose mission is to network dogs on death row in Ohio:
While this is a great idea, I am also very impressed with the K&H Pet Products Outdoor Kitty House which comes in both a heated and non-heated version. If you have an outdoor electrical outlet, the heated house is a perfect solution to keep your outdoor cats safe and warm. It is getting 5-star reviews from everyone who has purchased it. It is a very popular item on ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion of all proceeds goes towards pet rescue.
