She is refusing to come in whilst we have the puppy
Sad as it is. She was never an affectionate cat anyway but now she is almost feral.
I've been looking at this for her. Going to put it in the garage away from drafts. Her bed, food and water can go in the bottom, and if she needs it, her litter tray can go at the top. On really nice days, I can even move it outside so she can sun herself on the top deck.
In winter I plan to get a self heating heat pad to keep her warmer too if she still refuses to come in
Our cat, a rescued feral, was chased by our new dog and disappeared for most of a fortnight. New dog settled in and cat began to venture inside again. A comfy den outside will be good but he may refuse to use it. Haven't you got a shed he could sleep in? He may well move back in when the nights get chill.
