A few photos of our feral cat Winston and how we are keeping him warm this winter. Post may contain affiliate links.
I thought you all might like an update on feral kitty Winston Purrchill. As you can see, he is living up to his "Purrchill" name. This is on our screened in back porch, where there is a kitty flap in the screen door. The cats can come and go as they please and feel pretty safe. Here is Winston making himself at home on the wicker stool. This was Smudge's favorite stool, and it makes me miss him, but I love to see Winston on it.
How to keep feral cats warm in the winter.
To help keep him warm this winter, we purchased a small house, Petmate Pet Barn. For the fall, we just lined it with some cedar shavings and a towel. He slept in it fairly often. As it started getting colder, I added a cozier smaller house inside it, similar to this one, Brown Portable Soft Sided Cat Convertible Pet House, that I found at Homegoods. That gave him another cozy layer, but I was still concerned for when it got really cold. So, I added this heating pad, Soft Outdoor Heated Bed Small. We love this heating pad! His house is right next to an outlet, so we had no trouble plugging in the bed. What we really like about it is that we can keep it plugged in all the time and it only activates with the body weight of the cat. He loves it!! I find him in the house all the time now.
And, Luxie has practically completely recovered from being spayed! She is running and jumping and playing. She thanks all of you for your kind thoughts and wishes!
Since I am now participating in Caturday Art - I took one of the above photos of Winston and made him look almost like a paint by number!
