We meet a lot of interesting people doing rescue. And a lot of people with really great ideas. We met a man named Dan who purchased a warehouse locally. Along with that warehouse came 20+ feral cats. Dan contacted us for help with trapping, spay/neuter and vaccines. But Dan came up with some pretty wonderful ways to make these feral friends more comfortable! His “deluxe feral cat condos” are vented, insulated, have 2 exits, and have chew proof heating for during the winter. Dan also has each of the condos rigged with a small video camera so he can learn about their habits without disturbing them, or spooking them and making them wary of using the cat condos. He told us that approximately 4 cats stay in cat condo during this last winter. He also informed us that it was generally the same cats that slept together, although there were 2 “floater” cats that moved from condo to condo.
We are grateful to meet folks like Dan, who go the extra mile to help homeless, stray & feral cats. And he was also kind enough to furnish us with very detailed blueprints.
