Thank you Mouski, I don't think I could ever live inside but like others who live on the streets I know where my next meal is coming from. Sport

Just a quick update on the Rodent Patrol. Everyone is thriving. There is a new addition. She is tame, obviously was someone's pet. I don't what the story is behind her but after the first of the year I've got to get into a rescue she can go back to the life she has known. Right now she is doing well, and she is spending the nights in the tool shed. While not heated it is dry and secure. She has a warm bed fixed up in there. The rest are also doing well.

I love you I hope the new girl finds her new home soon. Sounds like she's doing well, and a warm, dry bed is really what she needs until she can get to the rescue. My friend's pet (former feral) left the house and is living in their shed because she didn't want to live inside.

Thanks, she really is sweet. There have been offers here on the block to let her stay but I think there is medical issues and also she might be blind in one eye.

As long as the eye is healthy, blindness isn't an issue. Maybe she's FIV+? No telling until she gets to the vet, but that too isn't the death sentence it used to be. Poor kit. I hope she finds her forever home soon.

The eye is healthy. She is healthy but she has limited to no street smarts. While clingy and somewhat needed she prefers to be a lap cat but not a cuddlier. I will be reaching out to one of the local rescues after the 1st..

She is truly a sweet cat, and I just checked so I hope she is denned up safe.

Just a quick update. GW of the Rodent Patrol made and appearance late last night and I do mean late. I put out food for her and Sport. Sport had already eaten but I put out two bowls to make sure GW got her fair share. I think the denned up under the tarp.

Saw Sport tonight, I don't if he's using the shelter or even denning up under the tarp. I sprinkled catnip in the shelter and under the tarp to encourage them to use it. I haven't seen GW since late last Saturday so I'm worried again. Diva, the stray that has attached herself to us is in the too shed. While it's not heated she has a bed in there along with food and water.

Shelter out of the wind and the wet is best. Even without heat, kitties figure out how to make nests to stay warm. It's incredible how they make little circles in bedding to hold their body heat in.

Glad Sport made an appearance, and I hope GW does the same soon.

I think Sport is denning up under the tarp. When he shows up at night for food is sitting in the entrance so I feed him there. I put catnip on the rigs that are in the chairs, I also put catnip in the shelter. The shelter has straw in it, I haven't checked lately. I hope someone is using it. GW was back tonight, hopefully she will den up with Sport.

Straw is perfect. All the barn kitties I've ever known love to make little nests in loose hay. Mouski has even asked for me to bring some inside in a box so he can den. You're the best feral cat mom!

GW and Sport are here for dinner. With GW back it's easier to know when to put food out. She has always been bold enough to put her paws up on the back door and look in the window. Diva the friendly has disappeared though which is concerning.

I often wondered if anyone is using the portable dog house that's under the tarp, I think they may be sleeping in the chairs. I see Sport peeking out from underneath the tarp so I assume that he is denning up under there.

I hope Diva comes back. Maybe she found people? She used to be a pet didn't she?

I bet someone goes into the dog house. Maybe not to sleep, but at least to nap. Is there straw in it too?

I think so. She was so friendly. I hope she does too.

The dog house doesn't have straw but jute packing that came in one of my Green Chef shipments. If you're interested in the meal service I'll post a link here.

Hmm... Not sure, but it could be very convenient on commute days, huh?

I've liked it. It's $77.00 for three meals and the portions for me are huge. I get six meals out of it. It sounds pricey but if you compare to eating out it really is a good value. you also don't have to shop.

It's winter again in Dallas. The Rodent Patrol has been fed and the electric water bowl has been plugged in. Check on the Away Groups didn't see anybody but left food.

The Aways are probably all snuggled. I never see a member of our local colony if it's under about 30 degrees. I'm pretty sure the coyotes eat the snacks left for the kitties. But... The kitties are always back at their corner once it warms up. I guess they get enough to pull through.

I have something very disconcerting happening at one of the Away Colonies.  One of the colonies is at an abandoned house, over the past month or so I've been seeing a drop in the population.  This colony was originally had another caretaker.  I don't know if she is still feeding there, I've seen her off and on.  On the whole I would rather avoid her, she leaves a trail of hard feelings and pissed off neighbors.  I've got a call in to the woman who feeds on Saturday but haven't heard anything back.  When I was there tonight the porch had been taped off with caution tape and it was covered in debris.  I found a clear space in the drive but it's going to dicey in bad weather.  What a mess.
