October 16th is National Feral Cat Day

Join Feline Rescue in observing National Feral Cat Month.

Feline Rescue's Feral Cat House Challenge,
Food Drive and Feral Cat Information
Sunday, October 27, 2013
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Feline Rescue shelter, 593 Fairview Ave N, St. Paul

  You have three reasons to join us on Sunday, October  27th

1.   Participate in the Fabulous Feral Cat House Challenge.  Colorful, creative, technologically advanced, or simply super functional—we want to see what you can come up with to help keep outdoor kitties safe and warm this winter. Design and build your own shelter or customize one you purchase.  The challenge is yours. Bring your cat house to the event by 2:30. We will award in two categories—most creative and warmest for a MN winter. After the competition, keep your shelter for cats you are feeding or donate it to our outreach team to pass along to other cats in need.  For ideas, go to Alley Cat Allies - http://www.alleycat.org/ShelterGallery

2.   Bring some cat food – canned or dry – for our community cat food drive.  The outreach team will distribute the food to those feeding feral cats.

3.   Build your own shelter.  Materials you need to bring are: 1 Rubbermaid-type 18 gallon plastic container with snap-on lid, 1 Styrofoam cooler that fits inside the plastic container.  We can help you cut the holes.  We will provide the straw.  Dress appropriately for outdoor weather.  View this type of shelter at Alley Cat Allies - http://www.alleycat.org/ShelterGallery

**The outreach team does have a few houses already made that we are willing to give to those feeding feral cats.  We have a variety of different kinds of houses.**
