Good Morning! About 5 months ago a black cat showed up in our yard. At first it was shy but it very quickly warmed up and has adopted our family. Because this happened in the spring, we decided that yes, we would feed her. So we provide food/water for her.
As winter approaches, we aren't sure what to do for her. We already have 3 cats, one of which doesn't care for other cats, so we really don't want to bring her in but how do we keep her safe and warm during the winter? Should we build her a house of some sort? How well would she survive when it gets really cold? We believe she was in the area all last winter, as we would occasionally see her.
(We need to get her into the vet for shots/checkup etc she is "fixed". We think she may have either wandered away from her family or been "dropped" in the area)
Other question- There is a tom cat that has been prowling the area. What to do to discourage him?
