Feral caregivers, aren't you dreading the cold weather?
I was just thinking, in a way I am very glad that I live in Florida, and we have a pretty small amount of cold weather compared to most of the US. And I am glad of that. I used to love our cold weather, those few nights that got down in the 30's and highs of maybe 50, if we are lucky. Now I just dread them. My Arwen, who knows how old she is. She is probably anywhere from at least 5 - 10 years old, I would think a pretty old cat for a feral cat. This will be my second winter of caring for her. I remember seeing her one cold night the previous winter before that, seeing her huddled underneath a car. I know she is a smart girl, but I so worry about this girl as she gets older, I worry about her hearing. She curls up and goes to sleep on my doormat, or on the kitty bed I leave outside. She isn't getting any younger. I love her so much, but she will not even come in my garage for more than 30 seconds much less into my house, and I have 3 indoor kitties.
I'm just lamenting about how much I am dreading the cold weather because of her. Last year I left a heating pad outside on the really cold nights and she did huddle nearby it for a while, but slept under my neighbors shed instead.
Going on Amazon to look at reviews of heated pet beds. And going to pray for an extremely mild winter this year.
