Deluxe Feral Living

One of our adopters started out with adopting 2 cats from us. Then, a year later she adopted 3 more. They all are now happy indoor housecats.  (To enlarge the photo of the deluxe new home click on the photo or link.)>

Then she came across a situation where 15 barn cats needed a place to go, and she got them all spayed and vaccinated. She renovated an old chicken coop for them to live in. I have never seen such a Deluxe Feral Living place! (To enlarge the photo of the back porch, click on the photo or link.)

I took some pictures to post as an inspiration for people with outdoor cats. It's a wonderful setting with heat, a porch and an exit to the outdoors. Big windows provide plenty of light and the cats live like kings and queens. (To enlarge the photo of the happy ferals, click on the photo or link.)

She even installed a camera to watch them from her house - it's amazing what people do, once they become compassionate!  (To enlarge the interior photo to the right, click on the photo or link.)
