Chris Poole – petdad to Cole the Black Cat and Marmalade – demonstrates how to make a basic cat shelter, using simple materials and a few simple steps.

For more on cat shelters, see: Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Cat Shelter Options Gallery and Philadelphia Community Cats Council Presents: Making Cat Shelters.

Shelters are useful for keeping stray, lost, neglected and other outdoor cats warm and protected from the elements, in addition to their primary use for ferals.

If you are leaving shelters on the ground or even on platforms or short legs, remember to check that they do not become buried in snow.
