Feral Cats Love My Loveseat

Feral Cats Love My Loveseat

by Gina Bennett
(Bradenton, FL.,US)

There are some feral cats living outside of the apartment building where I live. I feel for them as sometimes they have no dry places to hide when it rains. I moved into my place a few months back. My brother gave me an old wicker loveseat that was funny looking. I bought a used couch and loveseat from an elderly woman to move into my new place.

I took that funny-looking wicker loveseat (my brother had given me cushions and a cover for it as it was rather beat-up) and put it outside my apartment. I figured on a nice morning it would be an ideal spot for drinking coffee. Just recently we had a few days of rain.

The feral cats found it as a warm, safe place for shelter from the rain. I stepped outside and saw two of them, one on the loveseat, the other was underneath. I certainly have no problem with this as I have two indoor cats and rainstorms scare them too. I was happy that the old beat-up loveseat gave them a warm, safe place to go!


Note: A love seat is a small sofa or couch…Michael

How kind you are Gina ! Feral cats can stand any amount of cold weather but getting wet is very bad for them, so you are doing a wonderful thing by letting them shelter under your love seat.
I bet you feed them too !
You are obviously a true cat lover.

Hi Gina, Thanks for sharing. And thanks for helping cats. They love your love seat. Apt I think that this seat is playing out its role in a different but I think better way.

I changed the title to include the phrase “feral cats” so that it is better noticed by Google etc.
