“Meowch, it’s scorching out there!”
TIPS to keep your cats safe during hot weather:
- Ensure they have access to cool, shaded areas.
- Provide fresh water at all times.
- Avoid leaving your cat in a parked car, as cars can heat up quickly, even with the windows cracked.
- If your home doesn’t have air conditioning, use fans or provide ways for your cats to cool down, such as placing ice packs wrapped in towels near their resting spots.
- Groom long-haired cats to help them stay cooler.
- Consider placing a wet towel in the freezer and then laying it out for your cat to lie on.
- If you suspect your cat is experiencing heat-related distress or heatstroke, contact a veterinarian immediately.
