Winter Shelter

This old doghouse has been sitting unused in my parents backyard for years until this year when a couple of feral cats have moved in and are using it as a home base. It is well insulated with styrofoam so I bet they are toasty in there! I took this shot a week ago on a cold clear evening and love how the flash lights up mainly just the snow - it  looks as if it is out in the wilderness and not in a city garden.

Yup! This is a great photo...it certainly could be out in the woods. Nice of you and your folks to provide a place for a couple of felines to find warmth during the cold winter!

Very atmospheric, I imagine they are cosy tucked up in there too!

It's super cute too! Hope the kitties are having fun. :)

You are so right, I thought you found this little house out in the woods.

Such white snow. Those cats have certainly fallen on their paws with your parents.

Oh my gosh those are a couple of lucky kitties. The picture and story reminds me of a children's story book....you could write one!

I think the old resident wouldn't be happy to know a couple of ferals have moved to the house... ;-)
