Stray or feral cats, are well-suited to living outdoors usually in close proximity to humans and can survive winter on their own. They are able to live and thrive in all varieties of locations, weather conditions, and climates. Most of the time, they take care of themselves, scavenging and hunting for their meals while also depending on the kindnesses of cat lovers, but things can get a lot chancier when the weather turns frigid. Winter is the hardest time of year for stray cats. Cats can benefit from extra food during winter, so increase food portions to help them conserve energy. When the weather is at its coldest, the cats will be relying on each other for warmth, and will create their own tight spaces within their shelter. With that in mind, you can use whatever space and materials available to you to create a small haven.
Meet Chunk Chunk, a stray cat living on the streets of Brooklyn. He found himself a special way to help him survive in the cruel winter.
Nathaniel Styer noticed this week the tabby cat Chunk Chunk outside his apartment window. The cat was scratching and rubbing against the window. It seemed he wanted to come inside in from cold.
The kind man decided to help the poor cat to be safe and warm in this bitter cold. He opened the window and let him in. He gave him a space in the bathroom to avoid his dog.
Styer’s wife Becerra, also has a kind heart and affection for the stray cats. She tries her best to help these felines and wants others to do the same. The couple decided to foster Chunk until he finds a forever home.
The cat was fortunate as he won’t face the cold New York days ever again. Chunk Chunk seems to be more suited for life indoors than outdoors, so they are reaching out to ASPCA to find her a better home.
