Winter is officially around the corner.  The following items will help keep our feline family warm and well fed over the next few months.

1. Cat Food: Donations of soft and dry food are always welcome.  If you have food that you no longer need, we can put it to good use.  If you are purchasing food, our finicky friends seem to prefer Friskies dry and any flavour of Friskies soft canned food.  Their favourite treat is tinned sardines. 

2. Vitamins: During the cold weather, we add a little ground vitamin C and fish oil to the soft food.  Feral cats are prone to upper respiratory infection and this helps keep their immune systems in check.  Vitamin C tablets and fish oil capsules would be very helpful.

3. Plastic Containers:  In order to avoid putting soft food into frozen containers, we prepare our soft food at home during the winter.  If you have 250ml or 500ml containers with lids we would be more than happy to take them off your hands.  See picture below:

*If you have ever seen an insulated container that would be suitable for soft food, please let us know.  We are still searching for a way to keep the food from freezing. 

4. Insulation: We use extruded polystyrene sheets to insulate our kitty condos and feeding stations.  If you know anyone that has extra insulation leftover from renovations please let us know.  Any size will do (picture below).insulationkitty-condo-1kitty-condo-2

5. All Weather Duct Tape:  This comes in handy at any time of the year.  We use it to cover the jagged edges of the condo entrances.
