If you notice a particular area the feral cat/cats like to hang out or regularly see them sleeping, this would be a good location to place the shelter. You want to make sure the shelter is facing away from the direction of the wind and is not close to any sort of danger.
The particular cat I built this for was sleeping next to a pile of old pallets by a wooded area. Image 1
As you can see in the image is another variation of the shelter my neighbor made. He used some fallen branches to weight down his shelter.
To encourage the feral cats to use their winter homes, I placed treats along their walking path leading towards and inside of the shelter. This technique worked for me the best!
