Spare a purr?

So you guys know how there's a stray kitty around here who mom has been feeding? Well, she was wondering if you could spare a purr for her. See, we're supposed to get a giant snowstorm tonight and the temperatures are supposed to plummet to below zero. Mom's tried to get closer to her, but she just runs away. :(

Mom's very worried about what will happen during the storm. She keeps hoping the kitty does have a home. The kitty comes and visits the same time every night looking for food. She doesn't look too skinny, so maybe she just lives outside sometimes ... We hope so.

Speaking of the stray kitty, guess what I did? I chased that stray kitty all through the parking lot. Oh, mom was so mad at me. I squeezed out the door and took off! I knew that cat was out there! Mom thought she had lost me. But luckily the cat must of hid under a parked car, and I stood halfway under it, so mom was able to grab me. She was not pleased at all. I told her I was just protecting my territory.

Do you have a big boxe she can use as shelter? Any cedar chips to spread inside and a little spot outside? Place the box on it's side under a tree.

She may be able to stay just warm enough this way, or she may have a home and you won't see her until the storm is over!

We've got purrs galore for her!
Luv, Tink & Snow

Hi Monida,
Can your mom place a cat house outside for the kitty just in case? We can tell you how to make one if you want...or they can be purchased through some Humane Organizations. Basically, it's an insulated box of some sort, with hay in it, which helps to keep a kitty warm. Our block is a dead end street, and the lady who runs the rescue mom works with owns a house, so there are several 'cat houses' around by us. 2 are from a group that makes them and sells them. They are unobtrusive.
CK is the most territorial of us, though I have been known to be as well...our neighbor sometimes lets her cats in the hallway, and we then must check it out--CK and Mdinight once even went into our landlords house! And they have a big goggie!!!! but they didn't see him, and daddy had to run and get them!
Purring for your little outside cat of courese!!!

Many purrs for the stray kitty...We have used boxes before with a indoor/outdoor rug over the top to keep it dry.
Sometimes with the kitties winter coat, it keeps them just warm enough. I know she will appreciate it.

Now Monida where is there midwest hospitality I hear so much about?

Purring for the outside cat....even a cardboard box can help them keep warm....STAY OUT OF THE PARKING LOT!!! There are cars there & not everyone looks out for cats!

Sending purrs for your stray kitty to stay warm and safe! I like the ideas others furs mentioned about giving her a place to stay. We seen them made from large rubbermaid boxes with the lids. You cut side out and add insulation like others said. Stay inside too!

We're purring for the stray kitty. Outside is never great but extra scary this time of year. Of course you wish her safe, just not in your home. You were wise to make that one clear. We're purring that she'll get in shelter. Toby and Josie

Sending lots of purrs for the safety of that kitty.

Here are some shelter ideas!

We made one out of a large rubbermaid container for our stray cat pals in Kentucky. It is easy to make and doesn't cost much either.

Purring for your stray Kitty Mo. My Mom feeds the strays also so I know how worried ya'll can get over them. Tink had a good idea. And you be careful running outside, just think how upset your Mom would be if you got lost.
