A self heating winter shelter from cats: New Mexico is calling

As the city councillor responsible for the Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee I have had many people reach out to me over the years. A case in point is Keith Stout form Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Keith  recently  made a video about building a self heating winter shelter for cats. Its design is based on the Arctic igloo, which is known for its legendary thermal protection of natives. The Kitty Igloo can be built with just $3, three common tools, and 25 minutes' labor.  "No skills are needed to build a Kitty Igloo," Keith assures us. "Almost anyone of any age can build one."

We are fortunate in CSL to have Aldo  Fernando and Ingrid Hings on our team. Ingrid acquires styrofoam boxes and Aldo turns them into little cat condos, which many good people in our community use to house outdoor cats who cannot be socialized.
Take a look at Keith's video.

Beautiful Lady Tia is looking for a home

Members of  our committee have been spending some time at the Côte St. Luc Hospital for Animals lately to help socialize a beautiful five month old tabby kitten named Princess Tia. Well the good news is this feline is ready to be adopted. When Cindy the technician handed Tia to our committee member she went right into her arms and then transferred to her lap. Her fur is soft as silk and she was very gentle. This cat will make someone a great pet.

Princess Tia, on her own, climbed on my shoulder. The perfect pet for someone indeed.

If you are interested please call the Côte St. Luc Hospital for Animals at 514-489-6845.

Princess Tia sits comfortably on the lap of our committee member.
