Cleo Fund staff members recently picked up feral (also known as community) cat shelters made by Josh Passarelli for his Eagle Scout project.
Josh, a member of Scout Troop 39 in Scarborough, organized 19 volunteers to help with the project building 8 feral cat shelters. The project is a requirement for the rank of Eagle Scout and is used to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of the community.
Cat shelters are used on properties with community cats to ensure they have a warm, safe place to rest – to protect them from predators and the elements. The doorways are only big enough for cats and by lining the shelter with straw, the shelters stay warm and resist wetness. The shelters are painted with outdoor weather-resistant paint so they last a long time. Josh did an awesome job building these sturdy structures. There will be a lot of warm community cats this fall and winter thanks to his hard work and generosity!
