Making Feral Cat/Raccoon Shelters
Sam Englese
Troop 197, Newark

The overall goal of this project was to build safe homes for the feral cats that live near Tule Ponds. The houses we made are raised off the ground, weather resistant, and have a hinged roof so that if one of the cats is injured they can be helped. I had help from a video online that gave partial guidance on how to build the houses, but I had to draw up the schematics myself.

 I would like to thank all of the many people who helped me, especially Noel LaBerge and my uncle Tony Englese who helped with the cutting of the wood and figuring out how to build these things, as well as the Bayside Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for allowing me to use their building. Id also of course like to thank Dr. Blueford for giving me this opportunity and helping me make this project a reality.
