As some of you remember, Stephen became an outdoor kitty several months ago. She has adapted wonderfully and has become an whole new kitty! Her behavior is completely different - she is always lovable, playful, and has even become friends with the neighbor's kittens!
(which is a HUGE step for my baby... the cat who was so terrified of other cats that she wanted to kill them all).
She remains in our gated courtyard area and garage. Occasionally when the gate is open she will venture out but remain very close to the house. And just like a dog, you can call her and she'll come right back in. The neighbor's kitties come in and out to visit, but she doesn't care to leave (thankfully).
Winter is approaching, and I want to take every step possible to insure her comfort. Sometimes she likes to curl up by the front door, even when it's raining. So we are looking into getting a small dog house which we will line with blankets for her.
Also, I'd like to get her a warming bed for inside the garage. Has anyone used one of these? My father-in-law has a big one for his golden retriever that will only turn on when the pet lies down. What brands have you used and would (or wouldn't) recommend?
Any other suggestions for keeping my girl comfy this winter?
