caTbin / Public Design for stray cats


Many stray cats tramp among different trash bins in cities. They have no shelters on rainy and snowy days. People build shelters for tramps but ignore such strays. caTbin is a shelter design for stray cats. It is a trash bin with a small room on the bottom. The room may be a little crowded but it provides a warm home for the stray cats. They will never worry about the bad weathers.
