DIY Weekend Project

With the extreme cold weather we have been having in Toronto I thought it would be helpful to share this DIY project by Animal Equity that helps outdoor cats. How to Make a low cost Heated Water Bowl is a great instructional video especially for anyone who manages a feral cat colony, has to deal with cold weather and the problem of freezing water. Along with food, the video highlights the importance of providing outdoor cats with fresh water even in the winter months.
