Love cats?

I've had this for over a year now. Finally got around to scanning it so I could share. I left it large so it can be read easier. I feel it's a message that needs to be heard. If you know of any cats wandering your area please consider t/n/r and making a few small shelters for them. Thanks.

It would be wonderful if more people would actually pay attention to the cats around them. I'm not saying make a whole sanctuary. Only a few people are crazy enough to do that.

Some websites to check out different shelters that are easy to make......

http://www.neighborhoodcats.org/HOW_...WINTER_SHELTER

http://www.indyferal.org/index.php?page=shelters

http://www.pacthumanesociety.org/core/WinterShelter.htm

http://www.urbancatleague.org/Shelters.html

Take note with some that show insulation.... in our chilly Canada the insulation needs to be thicker and higher ratings (R20, R40) to help keep kitties warm.

Sooo true ....it would be great if we could somehow get some newspapers to print it so lots of people could read it. Or perhaps get the spca to make it into a poster.

Very appropriate, especially since today is Feral Cat Day: http://www.alleycat.org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=388

Hugs (if they'd let me) to my 2 TNR ferals, Memphis and Berlin.

Yep, it is. I was supposed to be one of the speakers today talking about managing feral colonies but had to work. I'm hoping next year I can make it. Let's hope that people listened.

If you can hug yours then come on over and hug my ferals too.
