***Winter Weather Tips

Community cats can thrive outside even winter weather—but you can help. Use these tips about food, water, and shelter during the snowy season.

Food and Water

  • Cats need extra food during winter and fresh water twice a day. Wet food freezes, so put out dry food as well (or just feed dry food).
  • Warm up canned food and water before serving, or use a heated bowl. Check out some bowls tested by caregivers.
  • Spray insulation foam into the underside of plastic feeding dishes to keep wet food from freezing.
  • Use bowls that are deep rather than wide and place them in sunny areas to keep water from freezing.
  • Build a feeding stationthat will shield food, water, and the cats from the elements.
  • Put a microwavable heating pad disk, like a Snuggle Safe, under the bowls.
  • If there’s a water source like a spigot, run the water slightly—it won’t freeze as fast as still water.
