a sort of inconspicuous outdoor cat shelter?
« on: August 21, 2016, 01:20:11 AM »
I live in the Northeast and it gets cold in the Winter, so I'm looking for ideas.

What I've got so far is several chep pallets and a wall that they lean against. It's good because there are two exits, but I'm afraid it will be too cold. I did a google search and there is a thing called a KatKabin, with this sort-of insulated "sleeve" to fit inside: https://www.walmart.com/ip/KatKabin-by-Brinsea-KatKabin-Outdoor-Cat-House-Winter-Warmer/14957576?action=product_interest&action_type=title&item_id=14957576&placement_id=irs-2-m2&strategy=PWVUB&visitor_id&category=&client_guid=947cffc3-72bd-44d0-a107-9e37ddc3b481&customer_id_enc&config_id=2&parent_item_id=15992547&parent_anchor_item_id=15992547&guid=a30784cf-829c-44a4-b055-fe5ef1a70a1c&bucket_id=irsbucketdefault&beacon_version=1.0.1&findingMethod=p13n

It's not free but it isn't sooo expensive, is it?

You can find several models of pet tents on Amazon, around $20. A large dog-sized one could accommodate several cats.

Am I off-topic here?

A tent would be too conspicuous. I'm trying to set them up at a golf club, knowing that there is more than enough food waste to support a large population.

If I ask the grounds supervisor what they do with the grass that they cut, they'll know.
