School for Michael....if his migraine is gone.

Then I'm going to find somebody to cure my husband of his grumpiness or I'm sending him back to Portland.

Morning Everyone
BJ
I think it's so kool that you are taking care of the feral kitties!
How many are there?I am a big kitty kat lover..heehee

Anyway,you were wondering about what you could set up for them outside to sleep in?
The cat lovers group i belong to someone had a question like this once.
I cant remember word for word..But here is an idea.

Pick up one of those larger rubbermaid containers w/lids.
Cut a hole in the side of it ,big enough for the cats to get in and out of.
They are waterproof and will keep them ALOT warmer.
Also put something like hay/straw in the bottom and cover with some old blankets.
If you dont think that would work.I had just one cat outside here last yr that i cared for.
Not sure what size box you would need but
I used a medium sized box w/lid that i attached ,so it would be half closed to keep warmth in..Then covered it in heavy duty plastic.
Then i put some old heavy towels in there for her to lay on.
If at all possible try and just put food out for them a few times a day.
Dont leave it...
Otherwise you wont ever get rid of the other lil creatures lookin for food!
I will ask around at my catlovers group to try and get you some better ideas!

I would be most happy to share this snowfall Goofy! 10 inches on the ground and still coming down. I hear the snowplows going up and down the road but they are fighting a losing battle.


Mr. Alffe reads with a little boy on Tuesday mornings at one of the elementary schools...he drove my car because I have snow tires and the good Lord knows I am not leaving the house! (cept to fill the bird feeders) I watched him "barrel" out of our driveway cause it STILL hasn't been plowed and he didn't want to get stuck.

And BJ, those were deer tracks in the yard....we live out in the country and have over an acre (is that how you spell acre? doesn't look right) Now I haved to put a corn block out here too.

I really could start another ticked off thread when I think about that man that doesn't ever seem to finish what he starts....come to think of it he never started the plowing.

Thanks for the tips Kell. I'm not sure how many I'm feeding. I think 3 but I think there's another one. I'm heading to the Barnes and Noble when I leave here and there's a Pets Mart there and maybe they have straw. And there's a Sears store and I can pick up a container. The box and blankets just aren't warm enough especially in this weather.

What irks me is that I've asked for help from Hope for the Animals organization and they said they have no room. I did trap 2 kittens in the summer and they took them but not anymore. I can't take them to the Women's Humane Society because they kill them. I asked them if I could borrow a trap to catch them and they made me buy it...but it was worth it. I always contribute money to this organization called Alley Cat Allies. They've sent me tips and suggestions for helping with feral cats. It's a great organization. They promote trap-neuter-return. I know that some cats will never be "house" cats so that's all we can do. I'm just trying to keep them as healthy and safe as possible.

I'm soooo jealous 10 inches. We've only had about 1/2 inch so far this year.

I knew that Doody...rofl but your heart is always in the right place. Wish you could all come over and have some of this mexican soup I made.

Stop by the Sanctuary if you get a chance and leave our girl Curious a hug.

She is such a sweetheart and always there for the rest of us when we need it.
