Shelter for Tabby

Hi all

I need to build a temp shelter for Tabby whilst we are getting the garden done (also I will be working back in the office 3 days a week, so can't bring her in if the weather turns).

We are on a hill and it can get quite windy, so plastic structures are not suitable.

I have a big rubber tub that I turned upside down and cut a hole out, but in the sun it gets very warm under it, so only use it on colder days. Even though it is very heavy, it can move with the wind.

I am thinking of using some old driveway bricks and then screwing down a piece of wood over it, then glueing tarpaulin over, with pegs for extra security.

I have attached a drawing of what I was thinking of making, her tub and the corner of the garden where I need to build it. It will only be temporary, but does anyone have any other ideas as to what I can do, especially advice on how I stop things from moving in the wind 😊
