Hello, friends! We didn't mean to yet again disappear this weekend. It was for a good reason, though, because this here human got to visit with her grandma. My grandma and her husband were sick with the flu during the weeks surrounding Christmas, and so we hadn't yet celebrated the holiday with them. So this weekend turned into a last-minute yet lovely visit with them, though it meant I didn't even look at my computer, hence yet another absence from us.
With our continued Christmas celebrations with family, and given the fact that our Christmas decor is indeed still up and will likely be up until next weekend, we're still feeling pretty festive. That, and tired, much like Evan looks here.
Today's discussion on shelters for outdoor ferals in the winter is to make sure you regularly check said shelters, to ensure that they are in good condition. Such checks should include looking for leaks and making sure that the shelter is dry inside. It is also, of course, important to look for broken or loose parts and pieces. These sorts of checks are especially important after storms or high winds, in order to ensure that no parts of the shelter broke loose or are posing a risk to the cats using the shelter.
