Winter shelter building

Every year around late August, the OSCatR Shelter Building team dust off their tools, tape, and exacto knives; watch for sales on totes and put in orders for straw.

 

We start off with a trip to a hardware store for durofoam, then we cut it to exact measurements to build each shelter.

Did you know

When a cat has grown up without human contact, it is considered “feral” and these adult feral cats are very difficult to socialize.

 

There are thousands of stray and feral community cats living in the Ottawa area!

The most humane option for adult feral cats is to spay or neuter them, and then let them live outdoors with adequate food and shelter provided.
