new to this forum.
i have a family of ferals that were born in my barn and i got most fixed and feed /water them everyday. they made it thru last winter but i need
make something to keep them from freeznig.
last winter was juat a few empty open boxes in trash bag with a shirt or something inside, i dont know know if they even got in them.
i now have a large recliner chair packing carton 4x4x4 or so.
was thinking of filling with straw.
should i seal it all up and cut a tiny cat size flap?
will they go into a totally dark place like that?
theres also a caprpet up there they have a wholt loft to themselves.
i been told they will wet the straw use blankets instead but i have no budget for this. also does urine+straw make fire? she talked like it was similar to linseed hazerds.
is the secret to a feral cat shelter a very low ceiling? seems like would inhibit peeing in there if they cant stand up all the way.
i also have a shipping ccarton for a miter saw, about 20" cube. its great because theres full cube molded stryofoam packing which can be easily hollowed out to make a superinsulated comartment for 1 maybe 2.
need ideas for free cat doors on these also.
another idea for you guys especialy for outdoors is pickle buckets. burger king still throws away 5 gallon buckets with lids which wash easy. very durable will last forever. the lids are water tight. can mount a nice cat door in the lid.
