We have 2 cats that live outdoors.  we feed them, see them, but that's about it.

Tonight the temperature will drop to 28 degrees.  Is it cold enough to justify bringing them in and locking them in the laundry room for the night?  Will the survive at that temperature?

In fucking Florida?


They should be okay.That's what the fur coat is for, plus they're great at finding shelter.

....it's great that you care...
next step is catch them and have them fixed.  Wink

That's not an easy task, but I've done it.  The humane society has a program called TnR - Trap-Neuter-Release and it's free.  They loan you the live traps.  I believe this is a nationwide program to help control the feral cat population. 

You trap the cat, take it in to the humane society, they spay or neuter it and then give it back to you to release back where it came from.


Notice the tip on this cats ear.  That is the standard identifier of a TnR'd cat.

well, I took hybrid advice.  I put catfood, tuna, water, a blanket, and cardboard walls in the little tykes clubhouse and put it on the back porch where they like to visit.  the one i had indoors (meowing the entire time) is now back out there, getting comfy.  his partner will arrive shortly, I'm sure.
Good work 240, you old softie!

If by chance they stay outside, make sure you check under the hood of your car before you start it up.
