Winter Cat Shelter Design Flashback
As the weather gets cooler (is anybody else excited for fall colors and allergies?), we think it’s important to think of the animals that don’t have any regular shelter. Last year, we sponsored, designed, and built a cat shelter to keep the feral rat patrol squad warm and cozy though the winter.
This project was accomplished with supplies that can be found for free or purchased at a local home improvement store—shipping pallets, storage bins, ratchet straps, hay and foam-board for insulation, and fun paint colors.
First, storage bins were stenciled with a logo and had entrance holes cut into them. These bins are Basil-tested and Basil-approved!
Then, we painted the pallets with bright and fun colors.
Overall, this was a fun project to design and a very rewarding experience for all of us. If the winter looks bad this year, we will definitely revisit this!
