Stackable shelters

Leslie Farrell, founder of Architects for Animals, built this shelter out of 2-inch construction polystyrene, a durable, insulating material. Each of the squares has enough interior space to hold a few cats while still being small enough to retain heat, and they’re also filled with straw for additional heat protection. The two separate shelters were stacked together to provide a home for several feral cats.
