Great useful tips shared here dude,..
Supplement adult food with kitten food, or alternate kitten food with adult food starting in September, to help put weight on your feral cats for the cold winter ahead.

regards,..

1. REMEMBER - As temperatures fall, the use of motoring products such as antifreeze increases. Antifreeze (found in car screen-washes and de-icers) often contains ethylene glycol or methanol which cats find sweet tasting, but it is highly toxic. Ingesting even the smallest amount can lead to kidney failure and death. Keep antifreeze in clearly labelled, sealed containers away from pets and clean up any spills immediately.

2. If your cat will be seeing seeing snow for the first time, consider letting him wander in a safe, enclosed area and supervise him.

3. The cold can severely affect inflamed and arthritic joints, so provide additional warm and comfortable places for an elderly cat.

4. When your cat comes in from the snow, wipe off any road grit and other harmful substances that may stick to your cat's paws or fur.

Getyourpet, I thought that I had read the text in your post above somewhere else. So I checked on the net and the text has been copied word-for-word (although the order of the points has been changed) from this site: https://www.yourcat.co.uk/cat-advice/general-cat-care/winter-cat-care-tips

Hi everyone!

I just want to clarify that is the cats need a warm shelter for winter or not?
It has been always said that cats feel OK in winter (of course they need a house or shelter or something) but I'm pretty confused now that they need a blanket or something like that to keep them warm or not?

Thank you.
