Cat Feeding: Weather-Friendly Feeding Stations/Shelters for Feral Cats

Posted by

Whether you own one or a few feral cats, feeding them outside is a lovely activity that both of you look forward to daily. But with all that joy and satisfaction of watching your cats feed comes a few headaches. For instance, feeding them on dishes, bowls, or on the floor can sometimes be annoying, especially if you have messy eaters. Other limitations, such as harsh weather or intrusions from other animals only add to the headache of feeding your cat outdoors.

If feeding your cats outside, with all its challenges, is something you want to improve on, consider getting an outdoor cat feeding station/shelter. A cat feeding station protects both the cat, its food and water from lousy weather, helps hide the food from intruders, and aids with cleanliness.

Unfortunately, finding a feeding station that's worth your investment can be a bit of a challenge. Pro tip: it's worth noting that the best outdoor feeding stations should have the following features:

  • Made of quality material such as rot-resistant cedar
  • Sturdy – not to be blown around in the wind.
  • Free from plastic and manufacturing chemical fumes or substances that could be potentially hazardous to cats
  • Attractive – we all know cats can be fussy
  • Durable and impervious to harsh weather elements
  • Easily accessible by cats
  • Easy to clean
