Lately the KY weather has been nuts. 80's in November. Now tonight it is back to normal and the first freeze of the year is here. It's a freeze warning and temps are expected to be in lower 30 and some places upper 20's before morning. I have cats in an inclosure and outside. What things can I do tonight and all winter to keep them warm? So far I put thick cardboard around every side of the enclosure on the deck(cat and 4 kittens) with a thick tarp and an insulated doghouse inside with newspaper. It will probably help it stay warm being on the deck off the ground. The enclosure behind the barn with a sick quarentined kitten has 3 layers of garbage bags and thick plastic wrapped around it so no cold air can enter. She has 2 houses to choose from one smaller one larger and both full of newspaper. Theres a tarp over top. My outside cats have several options...on the deck I have a thick tarp over the chair and only a tunnel for them to enter. To lay on there is an old seat cover that came with my truck. They also have the barn. These 4 I have outside made it last winter, but I'm still worried. I'm maily worried about the 2 enclosures. I'd rather let the sick one out so she could find a place, but I cant. Vet said it was best to keep her quarentined until she gets over whats wrong with her(medicine). The other one has to stay with her kittens because some stray toms were comming around and attacking her. Ok well u guys that have inclosures...do you think I've done enough???
