The tote and styrofoam shelters are made with a 30 gallon durable tote with a 1.5" styrofoam. We cut a 6" circular hole thru both the styrofoam and tote and use gorilla tape to tape the two pieces together. Straw is then placed inside the shelter. The donation is $20 which covers our costs of the tote, styrofoam and tape. These can be placed anywhere and are completely weatherproof. If you would like to reserve please go to www.furryfix.net and pre-order.
Tote plus styrofoam dimensions:
30" x 20" x 18"
Interior Dimensions (after tote and styrofoam):
20" x 14" x 15"
Both measurements are approximate within 1"
The measurements on the styrofoam only will vary because a lot of them are donated and are various sizes.
The cat shelters can be re-used in future years – just replace the straw.
You might have to re-tape the opening with gorilla tape from year to year.
If the cat(s) are not using them – try some of the below tips.
Cut off all (or a part of) the plastic lining at the opening.
Adjust the amount of straw inside the shelter (more or less).
Do not place around any feeding stations.
Place the shelter in a hidden location.
Check periodically to make sure the openings are clear and nothing is blocking them.
Please (if you can) take a photo of cat(s) using the shelter and send to: (260) 571-8142.
