Turn a cooler into a warm shelter for an outdoor cat! Cut a small doorway out of the side of the cooler and cut a rectangle of carpeting just larger than the doorway. Slice the carpeting up the center and attach it to the inside of the cooler as a doorway flap. Drill a groove out of the back edge of the cooler for the rope light, curl the rope light around the cooler lid and attach the lights with wood screws. Place a rug and food bowl inside the cooler for your stray cat and turn on the lights to warm the shelter during the winter.
