Well I done did it. Since Scrapper died over two months ago, weve been inidated with vermin again so I needed a couple of feral/barn/farm cats again. So I made a cat "acclimation" coop. Its 4' long x 2' wide x 4' high. It has a perch shelf, and a cat house thats 1' x 2' x 1' high. I got both boy cats from a nice lady in Gastonia,NC Yesterday,and they are in the cathouse...all cramped up and chaffing. They need to get used to the surrounding smells and sounds before I turn them loose.Id say about 3-5 weeks. They got food/water/ and John-box facilities that I have been checking every day. They are: a big grey and white mixed mutt, and a maine coon. Cant wait til they get their bearings and come out.
