In the harsh winter weather, shelter can be even more important than food for feral cats.
Even though feral cats develop a thick coat in the fall to keep them warm, they can die from exposure unless some protection from the elements is made available. With a little ingenuity, caretakers can provide the added warmth that these cats need by constructing a homemade shelter.
Toronto Street Cats (TSC) volunteers hold shelter building workshops throughout the fall and winter to teach the public how to build inexpensive, warm shelters for homeless cats. Shelters built during the workshops are then made available to caretakers and colonies in need. The workshops are also a great venue for caretakers to network with others in the community that are performing TNR. Since TSC started in 2010, volunteers have built more than 4,600 over wintering shelters for homeless cats!
