Homeless Shelter…

We have a Homeless Shelter on our back deck…

Recently… I mentioned taking in a stray kitten…

Now, there are two more cats that have found their way to my backdoor…

I tried NOT to entice them… but, the black kitty has been pretty persistent OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA … and the other one seems to have found someone elses backdoor

So, I’ve given out handfuls of food kle0316and my husband then said, “It needs water too!”...

Of course… now it comes morning, noon and night for its morsels…

You’ve heard the expression 3 meals and a cot for prisoners…

That’s what it seems like…

The cot had not been given… until the kitty decided the Bird Feeder k8765134on our deck would work nicely for that!…

I believe it watched our little stray that we took in using it…

That seemed to be working fine… although the birds were a bit confused!…

Looking for birdseed… only to see cat eyes  k6884775 looking back at them…

The temperature has started dropping…k15432439

so, at first… my son and husband threw some heavy towels over the feeder to block the wind

but, the other day… it was getting colder and colder…k8479852

So, while I was gone out for a while… the guys made a shelter of sorts that would block the wind more and keep out the rain/cold… A plastic tote… lined with a spare pillow I had… and another couple of dry towels… then…a plastic tarp over that…

It was immediately put to use!…

Love it!…

But, the story continuesbelow zero weather came in leading us to try

my heating pad idea which was used for awhilex20755563 slid under the towels… extension cord run… and would keep the kitty warmer… in the “shelter house”… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tonight… the weather was NOT fit for man nor beast penguin007

We broke all of our resolutions ti087a1603and brought the black kitty into the basement room near the furnace… Shutting the door after leaving food/water… where our kitties would not suspect that we had brought in our little homeless creature

I do believe I could see the most grateful expression k6688850on that kitty’s little face as it snuggled on a pillowed chair Snooze

As soon as the weather breaksout it will go… as the two cats I now claim are not liking this at all!…

I imagine the “humane” thing to do… is take this extra stray to the “Humane Society” we have near us…

I was so hoping someone would pass the word and claim this little creature… but, it doesn’t look like it is going to happen…

but, for now… it is as snug as a bug in a rug! k2858110

  1. My daughter is going to see if a Dr will prescribe the company of a cat to help with her depression and if so then hopefully her Apartment manager will let her have a kitten as the rules say no pets. will advise her to speed up the process.

    You all are so kind and loving. Lov U

  2. I saw this post late last night and have wondering how the kitties fared last nigh. They should have with that fine well constructed shelter. :D Someone told me about a pup that loves going out in the coldddd air near Detroit. Oh my!

  3. you guys are fabulous…to even put a heating pad out. wow! it is hard to manage after awhile as you say…you start with one and next thing the whole neighborhood tribe comes over. never ends. wish people would neuter their pets. so sad for them in harsh weather. good work. :)
