It’s cold for the furries too!

Hi Friends,

It was a FREEZING 4 degrees here this morning!

Don’t forget to take care of your outside furries when it’s cold like this. They can easily suffer frostbite or freeze to death if you don’t provide them proper shelter.

Don’t forget about water either. It freezes quickly and will need changed many times per day.

You can also purchase heated water bowls.


Here is an easy build your own insulated cat shelter.

Quick, cheap and easy.


And don’t be afraid to buy them heated pet beds.

Please take care of them… they can’t fend for themselves when it’s this cold.

Until next time…

Great idea for the cat shelter Carmen. I worry so much about dogs and cats that are not brought in or are strays. We leave my husbands workshop door open in case any stray cats need shelter ( even raccoons or possums).

Brenda who runs the dog rescue I volunteer with is going up north to pick up 5 stray dogs on a farm this weekend. I is going to be 18 below celcius tonight and I hope the farmer has sufficient shelter for them.
