Dog House Wanted by the PghCatLadies

We are preparing for what might be a rough winter, including our two feral visitors Oksana and Mx. Pajamas. Shelter is critical for homeless cats.

She’s incredibly wily and trap savvy – constantly pulling food out the side and always avoiding the actual trap snap.
