A man built a shelter for a neighbor’s cat that was left out in the cold, hoping this poor kitty would use it. Then one day, this is what he found.
When Justin saw his neighbor’s cat wander around outside all night long, he decided to make a cold weather cat shelter for him and the local cats in the neighborhood. As a volunteer of Berea Animal Rescue Friends, a no-kill shelter located in Berea, Ohio, Justin has a big heart for animals and is owned by 6 cats.
He used two rubbermaid containers with insulation in between and insulated bedding inside to build the shelter. It was a very cold night when he got the shelter set up by the doorstep.
After his neighbor moved, the cat was left behind in the dead winter. Justin started feeding the kitty and giving him water, hoping he would use the shelter to stay warm.
Then the day came when he saw what he’d been waiting for, “I found him huddled for warmth in the cat shelter I built,” Justin said.
It was a rewarding moment that he knew the kitty is going to be all right.
The ginger cat was named Waffles and Justin has already made arrangements to get Waffles to his forever loving home.
“Waffles is going to be picked up on Friday by somebody in Cleveland. They’re driving him to Columbus to his forever home,” .
Waffles loving his new bed.
“Waffles was really cold after being outside so long so I gave him a little towel blanket to sleep with,” Justin said.
“This towel will smell like him and be in the cat carrier he’ll be inside on his trip down to Columbus and his forever home.”
On his way to his forever home…
“I really miss him. It’s nice feeling needed and he was a sweetheart. It was hard giving him up,” .
Happy and loved!
It’s good to have a place to call home!
Waffle now! The king of the house!
