I live right near the Long Island sound but higher so I'm not in a flood area. Haven't had a colony for a few years but I found those little ferals are remarkably resilient. I never could put up the kind of shelter you and your husband did-wow! It sounds like they have a lot of protection. I've seen ferals come thru 2' of snow, zero degree temps, nor'easters-so with the extra protection you gave them, they have a better than average chance. Good for you and your husband to do this for them..

Inland So, you are in New York? Or is that near Long Island? Do you have any outdoor colonies? My hub over the last year has built small dog house type shelters (he is a carpenter) with tarping on the rooves. They are surrounded by tee pee pallets piled on each other. Then covered in tarping or plastic stapled on with his staple gun. There are piles of furniture dumped in the area and some of the houses are within those, protected. There are 2 dry feed stations we just filled tonight. I just still am very worried. Hoping they will be okay. What experiences have you had with storms and the cats? _____ From: Christiane Biagi <ti...@mindspring.com> To: email@example.com Sent: Sunday, October 28, 2012 3:58 PM Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] STORM - QUESTIONS Am in Westchester (New Rochelle).

I am very worried about the cats with the hurricane. We constructed small dog-house like houses for them with tee pees around them from wood pallets and some plastic. What's the general consensu? How have any of your outdoor cat colonies done in the hurricane situations? In Hurricane Irene, the group did okay but this one they are saying is worse. Do any of you live around this area of the hurricane approaching? _____ _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
