That's what we did' one has half a roof, the others have window screening over the wire mesh - cuts down on debris and rain. Another one has a sun umbrella standing over part of it - and guess what...most cats lie in the sun on the hottest of days!

I am owrking on plans for my pride. Thinking about roofing half of it so they could be out when I am gone during the day. Then, if it rained or the sun was very hot, they could find shelter. Also, I could get a solar pump and put in a fountain in a small pool for them. Harley would especially love this! He loves water and comes in the shower with me. He has also watched me and learned how to flush the toilet so he can watch the water spin around. ---- Bonnie Hogue <ho...@sonic.net> wrote: > Dear All > > > > Update on my "Dilemma" and numerous "questions".. > > The little "feral" cat from my aunt's house is now safely in a large cage on > my back deck.
