Tiny Houses for Homeless Cats in Riga to Survive Winter

Riga, the capital of Latvia has done something beautiful and humane for all stray cats in the city. Whether they’re pets left outside by their owners, abandoned or lost Riga’s stray cats now have a shelter to sleep in through the cold winter nights. The project is called ‘Outdoor Cat Houses’ and the first cat house was built last year for one district in Riga. Now there are over 80 houses built all around the city. The city is tidier and the most importantly these cats have their safe haven. Usually, each house is set next to an apartment house, designed for four or five cats, built from wood with internal insulation, solid and sturdy with two exits. All the houses are built by a native Latvian master, using donations made to non-profit cat protector organization Cat Care Community, with a help from the native Latvian Facebook blog Es Esmu Kaķis.

We wanted to build a nice structure where cats could spend the time,
