Heat Protection Tips For Your Cat

I am not a cat health blogger but I know that is times of extreme heat I need to spread the word about the health of cats. I have asked my fellow Cat Writers’ Assocation members for help in getting the word out to those facing higher temperatures for the first time. I define extreme for Great Britain as C40+ (104F for my American readers) which is dangerous to animals and humans.

I have assembled a selection of my colleagues heat protection tips for your cat. These include safety ideas as well as chilled treats.

  1. Since most cats stay in the home, and most homes have air-conditioning, I would hope cats are not at too much risk of harm from heat. Of course, traveling is another story.

  2. The hot weather is always a worrisome time for cats and dogs (and horses!) With Huskies, and one a wooly, I was always keeping them cool with pools, sprinklers, misting fans when outside and cooler beds, cooler collars, and a/c inside! While I do not have cats, I did always worry about our adopted feral, Binx, in the heat. He used to love to climb the fence and walk around the perimeter of our pool and lay on our deck. So I purchased a cooler bed and left it there in the shade along with lots of fresh water for him. Great list of links I’ll be Pinning to share!

  3. Very important information! My cats used to love it when I would wet them down with a cool cloth in the summer. I think that’s the only time they didn’t mind getting wet. In fact, the two of them would wait and push the other out of the way to get cool first. Smart kitties! I’m sharing all this critical info with my pet parents.
